Reed Switch and Magnet Assembly
Reed Switch and Magnet Assembly is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Current sensitiveI bought these switches to use as limit switches on my solar tracker. The circuit current of 30 ma, prevented the reeds from releasing after being switched. The switches work if the current is only micro amps, but that didn't do me any good. It would be nice to have better performance specifications so I could know what I was getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Basic Switch. NC/NO Option is GreatReally like the option to operate NC/NO. Agree with DaveO that the switch is a little "boxy", not to sleek which may be a consideration depending where you install it. I'm using the switch as a garage door monitor so boxy doesn't matter. Hooked it up to a relay & LED: green=door closed; red=not closed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value and featuresI ordered 20 of these to replace a bunch of alarm switches. I should have looked more carefully at the dimensions because they were a lot bigger than my existing switches (which my alarm company wanted $10 a pop!). This caused some clearance issues with some of my window blinds, but that's not really a fault of the switch. The switches are a bit "chunky" though.Mine did come with double sided adhesive tape although it wasn't pictured.In regards to the "Performance" rating, they are all working so far! :0)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and Price!I ordered ten of these for a home alarm system. I searched around to find switches with both N.O. and N.C. contacts and Parts Express had the best value. The only problem I have had is that one of the switches didn't work.. I opened it up and found that the reed switch glass was broken. I had more than I needed and these were such a great value that I didn't bother trying to return it. I will definitely order from Parts Express again.

Reed Switch and Magnet Assembly

Will these contacts work with a safetouch system successfully????

Asked by: cindyb10
This item is simply a switch, it is not specified to work (or not work) with any particular brand, make, or model of equipment. If your system requires very simple switches that are normally closed or normally open, then this product should be compatible. I apologize that I can't be more specific than that.
