ELCTRONICS: C&K Components offers a magnetic detect switch designed specifically for use in telecom and enclosure applications. The miniature, surface mount RS Series switches feature a magnetic reed sensor with an omnipolar orientation, allowing it to be operated with either pole of the magnet.
Along with telecom and enclosure applications, the RS Series detect switches are also being implemented in consumer electronics, computers, medical devices, factory automation and security equipment.
Available with top or side actuation, the normally-open RS Series magnetic detects feature a contact rating of 5.0VA, with a maximum switching current of 0.35A and a maximum carrying current of 0.5A. Maximum contact resistance is 200mΩ initial, and operating temperature ranges from -40C and +140C. The RoHS compliant and compatible detect switches are available with either gullwing or J-lead terminations, are pick-and-place compatible and available in tape and reel packaging.
