Changeover Reed Switch Form C from Standex-Meder Electronics for applications in security, measurement and control technology

Single-pole double throw SPDT Reed Switches are ideal for customized applications

Standex-Meder Electronics, a leading manufacturer of precise, reliable, and long-lasting reed switches, sensors, relays, and magnetics components, offers a wide range of single-pole double throw reed switches.

Changeover reed switch products are a changeover or single-pole double throw SPDT reed switch type where a normally closed contact opens before a normally open contact closes. A changeover reed switch is also referred to as a (Form C) reed switch or break-before-make (Form C), which defines the sequence in which one contact opens its connection to another contact and then closes its connection to a third contact. Changeover reed switches can also be used as a (Form B), normally closed reed switch (N.C.) in a reed relay or reed sensor application.

Form C reed switches are available in various sensitivity ranges. Additionally a variety of custom options and designs such as THD or SMD version or tape & reel packaging is available. There is also a specially protected and robust SMD version, the MK01-H, which is injection molded for special requirements in harsh environments.

Changeover switches are suitable for a large number of applications in a wide variety of markets. These include: automotive, industry, test and measurement (fluid level, empty indicator), home appliances, control technology, Security (alarm and safety) and Safety (machine safety, operating and control elements).
Standex-Meder is a pioneer for customized product solutions, working closely with the customer and their engineers to develop specially tailored designs meeting the customers’ requirements.
