Questions with Magnetic Sensors - Switches (Solid State)

  • Ask: What is a magnetic switch used for?

    Answer: Simple magnetic switches are used to detect the opening of doors and windows. A basic magnetic switch comprises two parts\u2014 the magnet and a magnetically sensitive switch (usually a reed switch enclosed within a glass envelope). Switches may be either normally open (close on alarm) or normally closed (open on alarm).

  • Ask: How does a magnetic switch work?

    Answer: A normally closed switch works in the opposite way, when no magnetic field is present the reeds are in full contact, the electric circuit is complete and the device is 'on'. When a magnet is moved close to a switch, or the switch close to a magnet, the reeds repel one another and split apart, breaking the circuit.

  • Ask: How sensitive are reed switches?

    Answer: Typical pull-in sensitivities for commercial devices are in the 10 to 60 AT range. The lower the AT, the more sensitive the reed switch. Smaller reed switches, which have smaller parts, are generally more sensitive to magnetic fields.
