- Magnasphere Corp. has developed the first significant improvement in two-wire, hermetically sealed, magnetic switching in over 60 years; the patented, award winning Magnasphere Switch.
This new technology overcomes the inherent weaknesses of the reed switch (fragility, magnetic tamper susceptibility, size), while retaining the beneficial characteristics (non-contact actuation, sealed contacts). Compared to the Hall Effect switch, the Magnasphere switch exhibits similar performance but does not require power and is less expensive.
A feature unique to the Magnasphere switch is its ability to function as a compact, very low cost stand-alone ferrous proximity sensor. Because the internal contact is a spherical magnet, the device will sense the presence or absence of ferrous material such as steel.
Manufactured in America to ISO standards, the Magnasphere family of switch products offers Design Engineers in all industries solutions to problems inherent in other magnetic switch technologies.
L-Series Magnetic Switches
The L-series from Magnasphere offers remarkable ferrous-metal proximity sensing. Unlike typical reed switch devices, they need no magnet actuator.
Omnidirectional Tilt Disturbance Switch
Magnasphere's omnidirectional tilt switch is RoHS compliant, chemically inert, and sealed from atmosphere and water.
Unidirectional Tilt Switch
Magnasphere's T1-AB-JS industrial grade non-mercury sealed unidirectional tilt switch is RoHS compliant and requires no standby power consumption.
MSS Series Security Sensors
The MSS concealed style security sensors installs in fail safe mode and is available in 3/4", 1", and 2.5" sizes.
TW Series Magnetic Switch
This series is used in the security industry for door and window sensors in Closed loop alarm systems. It has a wider actuation zone in the X or Y axis than other form A Magnasphere switches. Visit Digikey.com to order now.
