Miniature Proximity Sensors for SMD Mounting
Product Announcement from Coto Technology
Coto Technology, of Providence, RI, a leading global supplier of high-quality reed switches and relays, has introduced two new additions to its growing line of Molded Reed Switch sensors. These miniature sensors, which are molded in thermoset plastic to provide greater protection, have proven to be ideal choices for automated pick-and-place applications. The CT05 is Coto's newest and smallest molded switch with a body length of only 0.252" (6.4mm). Based on Coto's 5mm switch design, it is available in Gull or "J" lead configurations and is the smallest molded reed switch sensor available in the industry today. The CT05 is rated at 5W and offers the same rugged design features of the CT10, but at a smaller size. The popular CT10 model has now been made available with a G4 lead configuration, which features a wider flat lead to provide both stability during component placement and improved solderability for surface mounted applications. The CT10 is rated at 10W. Both products are packaged in Tape & Reel to further facilitate automated processing. Volume prices for CT10 are <$.25ea and for CT05 <$.45 ea. Delivery is from Stock to 6 weeks.
