Reed Switches for Smart Home Automation Systems
Reed Switches work well with smart home automation systems because they draw no power compared to other magnetic sensing elements. They can be married to a wireless or Bluetooth technology and placed in remote battery powered door sensors or window sensors, or anything where you’re looking for movement or proximity. They’re a very cost-effective and robust component suitable for the home environment, requiring fewer connections resulting in longer battery life.
In today’s homes and also commercial properties, there’s an increased necessity for control to improve efficiency and productivity. And with that control, you have different products that measure temperature, water levels, security, and locks, so within those products reed switches play a major role in making them “smart”.
Standex Electronics is a global leader in the design, development, and manufacturing of standard and custom Reed Switches.
Product Training Module – RF Reed Relays Part I
Welcome to Standex Electronics' RF Reed Relays Part I training module. Reed relays have long been known to have the capability to switch and carry RF signals and fast digital pulses. Hardly anyone thought reed relays were capable of switching and carrying RF up to 20 GHz, because the reed switch's leads are composed of nickel/iron which has a relatively high permeability or (MU). However, 20GHz is now a reality at Standex Electronics. We will be presenting the reasons Standex Electronics and their design team have made this possible.
Product Training Module – RF Reed Relays Part II
Welcome to Standex Electronics' RF Reed Relays Part II training module. This second RF presentation assumes you have already heard the first Standex Electronics RF Part I presentation. Understanding the simple physical layout of a reed relay makes it easy to design and rest reed relays for RF and fast digital pulse applications. RF is dependent on the physical layout or signal path it takes while going through circuits and the components that make up those circuits. We will show you how the physical layout of the reed relay will have a direct bearing on the RF signal's success going into and out of the reed relay. Coupled with the relay's physical layout, the materials making up the reed relay are also important.

How a Reed Switch Works
The Reed Switch is the core element in Reed Sensors, Level Sensors and Reed Relays. A magnetic contact switch consisting of two ferromagnetic blades are hermetically sealed inside a glass tube. The glass tube is filled with a high purity inert gas. Under non operating conditions the reed switch contacts do not touch. Standex Electronics is leading the way in reed switch manufacturing...

Reed Switch SMD Sensor & Magnet Actuation in 3-D
A Reed Switch Sensor on a surface mount PCB assembly shown in 3-D with actuating magnet. When viewed in three dimensions, the magnetic flux lines emanating from the magnet look like a beer barrel keg; and also in three dimensions, with the magnet parallel to the reed switch, the center magnetic lobe array looks like a donut and the two outside lobes look more like a boxer's punching bag -- the kind hung from the ceiling. Essentially the fields from the magnet and the fields for the lobes are symmetrical when viewed in three dimensions. As seen in two dimensions, when the magnet is brought into one of the lobes the reed switch contacts will close. Now, as seen in three dimensions the magnet can be brought into the lobes in any spherical direction for contact closure to occur. Here the magnet is moved into the sphere of influence of the lobes of the reed switch showing the closure and opening when the magnet enters the lobes and passes through them, The change in lighting signifies the closing and opening of the reed switch contacts.
