MK6 Series

Reed Sensors for pcb mounting

Characteristics

The MK6 sensors are magnetically operated Reed proximity switches for direct pcb mounting . The sensor should be mounted on a fixed surface with the actuating magnet, e.g. M6, on the moving surface.  The Reed Sensor and the magnet must be fixed in a definite distance to each other.  Approximation resp. removal of the magnet determines the closing and opening of the Reed Switch.  The magnetic pull-in / drop-out sensitivity is divided into various AT ranges.  2.54 mm pcb pin pitch, available with different distances.

Applications

Telecommunications, e.g. telephone hook-switch, keyboard applications, micro switch

Domestic appliances, door switch for washing-machines, dish-washers, microwave / baking ovens, refrigerators etc.

Limit switch for low-power signals, e.g. garage door controls, lever hoists, conveyors

Lifts / elevators, e.g. position indicators

Dimensions

Tolerance +/- 0.10mm (0.004 inch)

NEW PRODUCT

MEDER electronic is pleased to announce the launch of it’s MK6-10.  This product is a new (bistable) latching sensor which is opened or closed by a passing magnet.  This sensor remains in that state until a magnet of the opposite polarity passes by again

 
 
 
 

Magnetic Sensitivity MK6-10
Sensitivity Class E
Pull-in AT range 20 – 25
Available switches 71
