Comus presents the RI-80 SMDH Series of ultra-micro dry-reed switches which are hermetically sealed in a gas-filled glass envelope. They are a single-pole, singlethrow (SPST) type with normally open contacts and two magnetically actuated reeds.
The switches are of the double-ended type and may be actuated by an electromagnet, a permanent magnet or a combination ofboth. The series is available at distributor Rutronik as of now. Comus’ RI-80 SMDH series features contact layers in gold or sputtered ruthenium, a superior glass-to-metal seal and blade alignment. It is RoHS compliant and ideal for proximity sensors, telecom and medical applications. These switches are the only reed switches recognized as the true ATE gradequality switches. It is encapsulated for extra durable protection and can withstand increased rugged conditions and handling. The operating ambient temperature reaches from -55°C up to +125°C.
It is disposable in three styles:G1 Model (Gull Wing), G2 Model (Gull Wing) and J-Lead Model. The RI-80 SMDH Reed switch is ideal for various applications, e.g. for electronics (Notebook computers, cellular phones, copiers), automotive parts (doors, sun roof and liquid level and positioning sensing), security for doors, windows and detection of smoke, for toy (electronics board games, LEGO sensors, bicycle speedometers), industrial applications (pressure gauges, flow meters, key-knob switches) and for domestic appliances (coffee machine, humidifier, water and detergent level sensing in washing machines and dish washers).
