High Security Switch Sets

“Biased for high security” begins as a single pole double throw reed switch that is biased into an opposite condition. We begin with one open leg and one closed leg, but in the biasing operation we reverse the open to closed and the closed to open using just enough magnetic field strength to hold them in the opposite positions. We have now created what we refer to as a double tripping switch that can be actuated only inside a specific window of operation. If you bring an actuation magnet towards the switch, notice that at some point dependent on size of the actuation magnet, you will actuate the switch. Also, if you continue movement of the actuation magnet towards the switch, at some point the switch will release. So the biasing operation has created a maximum distance and a minimum distance of actuation - a “window”. At approximately the center of this window, should a compromising magnet be added, the effect would be similar to moving the actuation magnet to the inside limit of the window and the switch would release creating an alarm.

Standard operation of a reed switch deals with the magnetic attraction of two paddles when introduced to a magnetic field.
