Magnetic Actuators

Magnetic Actuators
Data Sheets »

A packaged magnetic component used in conjunction with a reed switch. When the actuator is positioned in close proximity to a reed switch it causes the reed switch to move from an inactive state to an active state. Actuators are matched with specific reed sensor series and are sold separately. Some reed sensors such as the Vane Float Lever Arm and Seating Occupancy sensors have a magnetic actuator integrated within the sensor package. Bare rectangular and cylindrical magnets are also available. Rectangular magnets are well suited for flat surfaces. Cylindrical magnetic are well suited for mounting on a frame. The magnets are made from AlNiCo, Neodymium (NdFeB) or ceramic material.

A summary of the reed sensor series and the matching magnetic actuator is as follows:
