Magnetic Reed Switches, Sensors and actuators for OEM Sensor and Switch Manufacturing
Are you a sensor or switch manufacturer that’s looking for a trustworthy, reliable, U.S.-based magnetic reed switch development partner? Since our 1967 founding, Reed Switch Developments Corp. has specialized in providing “value added” standard and custom magnetic reed switch and proximity sensor solutions, including the design and development of custom products for higher volume OEM sensor manufacturing applications.
Our products serve as part of the key internal operating components of dozens of finished magnetic reed sensor and switch product designs made by other industry manufacturers. In addition, we provide white label custom magnetic reed sensor design and production services for our larger direct competitors, given that our small business size and full in-house engineering expertise allows us greater flexibility in meeting such requirements.
opens IMAGE file All standard and custom magnetic reed switch sensors and actuators from Reed Switch Developments Corp. are known across the industries we serve for their fast-acting, high-reliability performance. As our product designs incorporate, somewhat exclusively, magnetic reed switch based sensing and actuation technologies, the sensors and switches we make are free from mechanical wear and offer many years of reliable field service, including within demanding environments. Our magnetic reed sensors and switches are also hermetically sealed for added protection against dust, contaminants, moisture and humidity. Most of our assemblies are also UL recognized and RoHS/REACH compliant. In addition, given the extensive in-house and 100% U.S.-based design, development and manufacturing capabilities of Reed Switch Developments Corp., both standard and custom magnetic reed switch sensors and actuators, in virtually any quantities may be produced to customer exacting standards, at competitive pricing, in as short as ten (10) business days.
opens IMAGE file Standard magnetic reed sensors from Reed Switch Developments Corp. are available with choice of SPST, SPST-NO (A) and SPDT (C) configurations. Customers may choose from a variety of reed switch sensing materials of varying sensitivities and wattages (0.25W – 100W). A wide selection of case materials, including Celanex, Celcon, Lexan, Epoxy and Valox, are also available in support of a myriad of industrial applications. Aluminum, stainless steel and brass housings are also available for more extreme applications. Our custom magnetic reed switch sensors and actuators are also available with a large selection of permanent magnets, each of which is designed to pair seamlessly with the switch. Custom molded magnets may be also specially configured to meet user-specific mounting and operational requirements. Various wire and cable options, with the most popular insulating materials in 18-26 AWG sizes, are also available. Connectors can also be supplied, including AMP, Molex, JST, Packard, threaded, weather sealed, snap lock, lug, and other types. Reed Switch Developments Corp. can also offer exclusive product customization capabilities, including (but not limited to), specific cable/wiring, connectors, encapsulation, and more.
