Surface mounted Proximity Sensor.
This Proximity Sensor is a reed-based sensor activated
by the presence of a magnetic field and designed for
SMD mounting. These moulded sensors are ideal for
use in laptop covers, security system sensors, electric
gas metering, fluid flow sensors and level sensors.
The reed switch at the heart of the CT10 Series is a single-pole,
single-throw (SPST) type having normally open contacts and
containing two reeds which can be magnetically actuated by an
electromagnet, permanent magnet or combination of both. The
switch features low and extremely stable contact resistance
(115 milliohms) as well as long operational life - even at power
ratings as high as 10Watts. The long life is attributed to an
exceptionally rugged ruthenium contact layer that ensures
lifetimes up to 1 billion operations
The CT10 and the CT05 Moulded SMD Reed Switch miniature
sensors, are moulded in thermoset plastic to provide greater
protection, have proven to be ideal choices for automated
The CT05 is the smallest moulded switch with a body length of
only 0.252" (6.4mm). Based on a 5mm switch design, it is
available in Gull or "J" lead configurations and is the smallest
moulded reed switch sensor available in the industry today.
The CT05 is rated at 5 Watt and offers the same rugged design
features of the CT10, but at a smaller size.
The popular CT10 model has now been made available with a
G4 lead configuration, which features a wider flat lead to provide
stability during component placement and improved solderability
for surface mounted applications.
