World’s smallest reed switch

Providence, RI-based Coto Technology has successfully developed what it claims is the smallest reed switch in the industry.

At just 5mm, the Coto’s RI-80 is ideal for size-restricted sensor applications in medical electronics such as pacemakers, endoscopes, and hearing aids, as well as miniature industrial position sensors and consumer applications – including laptops, PDA’s and mobile phones.

And, because it is rated at 5W, the RI-80 is also suited for high-reliability, small signal automatic test equipment.

Coto’s reed switch is priced according to configuration and quantity, with typical 4 to 8 week delivery. Samples are available at $1each.
