What is a Reed Relay?

“What is a reed relay? A reed relay is a small electromagnetic switching device that integrates a coil around one or more reed switches. The energized coil creates the magnetic field used to control the switching operation.”   If there are particular areas you need help with, feel free to skip to any of the… Read More

Reed Switches used in a Reed Relay Application

“A reed relay application uses an electromagnet to control one or more reed switches. Reed relays are the answer to all of the other switching technologies that simply do not meet low-level switching requirements.”   If there are particular areas you need help with, feel free to skip to any of the following sections: Introduction… Read More
