A magnetic door switch, also known as a reed switch, is a type of proximity switch that uses a magnetic field to operate. It consists of two main components: a reed switch and a magnet. The reed switch is a small, sealed glass capsule containing two ferromagnetic contacts. The magnet is typically a small, cylindrical piece of metal.

When the two components are brought close together, the magnetic field from the magnet causes the ferromagnetic contacts in the reed switch to close. This completes the electrical circuit, which can then be used to trigger an alarm, turn on a light, or operate other devices.

Magnetic door switches are commonly used in security systems to detect when a door or window has been opened. They are also used in a variety of other applications, such as:

  • Lighting control: Magnetic door switches can be used to turn on lights when a door is opened and turn them off when the door is closed.
  • Automatic door openers: Can be used to trigger an automatic door opener when a person approaches.
  • Appliance control: Door switches can be used to turn on appliances, such as refrigerators and coffee makers, when a door is closed.
  • Industrial automation: Switches can be used to detect the position of machine guards and other safety devices.
