Product Announcement from Coto Technology
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 mohms ) 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 CT10 Series are priced at <$0.30 @ 500K quantity. 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. A PDF data sheet is available at www.cotorelay.com
