Hall-effect and Reed Switches

Both Hall-effect switches and reed switches are non-contact devices, reliable, and have a long lifespan, making them popular choices in many different products.

Hall-effect switches are based on the principle of the Hall-effect, where a magnetic field can be used to control the flow of electric current in a semiconductor material.

Reed switches, on the other hand, use a magnetic field to physically make or break a connection, and are commonly used in applications such as proximity sensing, level sensing, and security systems.

■  Selectable working principle: Reed Switch or Hall Effect.

  Simple dual module design with only two wires with no external magnets or moving parts required, thus saving space, cost and set-up operations.

  Fully sealed for harsh environments without mechanical wear between both modules and customizable lifetime specifications.

■  Custom designs can be developed including electrical and mechanical characteristics, size, wires and connectors.
