CT10 Series Molded Sensors

Coto Technology has  released the CT10 Series Molded Sensors.

The CT10 Series is a reed-based proximity sensor activated by the presence of a magnetic field and designed for SMD mounting.  These molded 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 10W. The long life is attributed to an exceptionally rugged ruthenium contact layer that ensures lifetimes up to 1 billion operations.  The product  dimensions are 0.115" x 0.458" x 0.095" max. The packaging is tape and reel. Delivery is from stock to 6 weeks.
