The 59040 Press-Fit Reed Sensor is a small, cylindrical reed sensor 31.0 mm (1.22”) long that presses into a 9.5 mm (.375”) diameter hole with a choice of normally open, normally closed or change-over contacts. It is capable of switching up to 200 Vdc at 10 W Contact rating. Extensive range of sensitivity with specified cable length is available. The housing color is white. It has three crush ribs along the length of the capsule that allow a firm and fixed press-fit. It is well suited for use in a wide range of industrial, appliances, or IoT proximity sensing applications. It functions best with the 57040 actuator.

This guide provides an introduction to magnetic sensing and options for value-added custom design packages.

pdficon Flow Sensing in Tankless Water Heaters Application Note

Reed switches and sensors are highly effective solutions for flow sensing applications that can be used for detecting the presence of fluid flow in a system or even measure the rate of fluid flow.

pdficon Position and Level Sensing in Washing Machines

A most integral appliance in any home is a washing machine. Washing machines have helped made the chore of cleaning clothes quite effortless.

pdficon Rice Cooker Lid Lock Application Note

The position sensing lid lock ensures that the lid is securely locked in place.

pdficon Capacitive Loads Application Note

When there is significant capacitance in a reed sensor reed relay or reed switch circuit the peak current and energy switched by the reed contacts should be considered.

pdficon Inductive Load Arc Suppression Application Note

When a reed switch or reed sensor is used to control an inductive device (relay coil solenoid transformer small motor etc.)

pdficon Reed Switch and Reed Sensor Activation Application Note

Although a reed switch can be activated by placing it inside an electrical coil many reed switches and reed sensors are used for proximity sensing and are activated by a magnet.

pdficon Reed Switch Extended Shock Capabilities Application Note

The maximum shock specifications in the Littelfuse catalog are very conservative for most switches smaller than the DRxxxx type. T

pdficon Vibration Testing and Precautions Application Note

Littelfuse tests sinusoidal vibration according to Mil. Std. 202G Method 204D Test Condition G (10 ? 2000 Hz frequency sweep at 30 G or 0.06 inch double amplitude whichever is less).
