MEDER electronic, Inc. introduces the MK24 series Reed Sensors measuring only 5mm x 1.8mm x 2.2mm they meet a minimum life expectancy of 50 million operations at 5V, 5mA, 100Hz. This tiny energy saving device requires no external power to operate making them especially well suited for low power applications. Sensitivity ranges from 1.5-10mT are available.
The MK24 reed sensor is a hermetically sealed switch in a robust thermoset molded package. This miniature sensor series is perfect in applications where size is critical, while its flat contacts provide the added benefit of effortless contact orientation during PCB assembly. Available in 3 lead designs, the MK24 series are sold in Tape & Reel packaging and are suitable for pick and place automation.
Capable of switching up to 3 Watts with individual maximum ratings of 0.5 Amps and 5 Volts; the MEDER MK24 series surface mount Reed Sensors have a minimum breakdown voltage of 100VDC across the contacts. These reed sensors are RoHS compliant.
