RSDC magnetic reed switches offer fast-acting, high-reliability performance. The switches are free from mechanical wear and are hermetically sealed, ensuring years of reliable service within demanding environments. Most assemblies are also UL recognized and RoHS/REACH compliant.

With each custom reed switch design project, the company’s in-house applications engineering team applies more than 45 years of field-proven experience. To meet unique requirements, RSDC works in close customer collaboration to identify a “best fit” solution, based on a multitude of application and performance parameters. From there, RSDC can quickly produce finished prototypes, with final production commencing upon receipt of customer final approval and a purchase order. Prototype modifications, including the addition of a connector or specification of an alternate housing, can also be routinely accommodated.

Magnetic reed switches from RSDC are available in SPST, with choice of NO or NC contacts; and SPDT configurations. Customers may choose from a variety of reed materials with varying sensitivities and wattages (0.25W - 100W). A wide selection of available case materials includes, but is not limited to, Celanex, Celcon, Lexan, Epoxy and Valox. Aluminum, stainless steel and brass housings are also available for more extreme applications.

Custom RSDC actuators are also available with a large selection of permanent magnets, mating with the switch. This includes custom molded magnets, configured to meet user-specific mounting and operational requirements. Various wire and cable options are also available, with the most popular insulating materials in 18-26 AWG sizes. Connectors can also be supplied, including AMP, Molex, JST, Packard, threaded, weather sealed, snap lock, lug, and other types.

Founded in 1967, RSDC is a developer and manufacturer of standard and custom magnetic reed switch and proximity sensor assemblies, primarily for aerospace, automotive, industrial and medical OEMs. From its earliest days, RSDC was one of the first pioneers in the design, development and manufacture of standardized packaged reed switch sensing technologies.
