Standex Electronics reed switch based products, inductors, transformers and planar magnetics are ideally suited in many alternative energy applications. In hybrid and electric vehicles you might find reed relays in the high voltage battery, DC/DC converters, and inverters measuring and and isolating high voltages between the active electronic components and the frame, or the passenger. Reed relays are hermetically sealed and offer excellent high isolation, low power consumption, and long life characteristics. Additionally reed relays serve a similar role of measuring isolation in the integrated isolation control of modern inverters used in Photovoltaic systems.
Our magnetics products and reed switches and sensors also play a significant role in revenue metering for gas, electric and water meters, individual measurement of electricity usage in multi-tenant properties, security against tampering in metering systems, and AC current measurement for high-current applications.
