Magnetic Reed Switch Positioned as World’s Smallest
Standex Electronics introduced a magnetic reed switch measuring 3.7 mm in length. In addition to being able to fit in very small spaces, the GR150 also maintains a very narrow sensitivity range. With a magnetic sensitivity of 2-4 Ampere Turns (AT), typical operating time of 0.2 ms (typical) and a release time of 0.1 ms (typical) this professional grade ultra miniature reed switch is appropriate for very demanding applications such as within hearing aids, in pill cams, flip or slide phones, laptop computers, and more. The GR150 functions as a non-contact position sensor and features PGM alloy contacts and a power rating of 1 VA maximum. A switching current (Max) of 0.05 A DC is standard, as is a carry current rating (max) of 0.5 A DC.
