Convertible Roof Position Sensor


Particularly in warm weather areas convertible automobiles are very popular; however, surprisingly, even in cold weather areas, convertible autos are also very popular in the summer, warm weather months.  In these areas, as the evenings cool or sudden weather conditions develop, the convertible roofs may need to be closed in a hurry.  Most of the convertibles have gone over to the automatic opening and closing.  Reed sensors play a key role in accomplishing this.
