Magnet Product Line Expansion from Hermetic Switch

27 October 2008

More Types of Magnets Now Available for Use in Medical, Aerospace, Military, Industrial, Electronics, Research, Science, Education and Other Applications

Hermetic Switch, Inc., a privately held company that designs, develops and manufactures reed switches, proximity sensors and other switch technologies, recently announced an expansion in its magnet product offerings in order to respond to customer and market needs.

Hermetic now offers a wider range of permanent magnets in terms of material of construction, size, shape and strength. Offerings range from tiny button magnets to more substantive rare earth magnets. Materials of construction include cast nickel alloys, ceramics, and neodymium. In terms of size and shape, twelve sizes of square shaped magnets and twelve sizes of cylindrical shaped magnets are now available. [see jpg photo] Magnet strengths range from 250 to 1100 gauss. Hermetic can customize the specific strength of the magnet if required for a particular application.

Magnets are utilized by the company's customers to actuate Hermetic's magnetically operated reed switches and sensors in medical, aerospace, military and industrial applications. Reed switches require no electric power source or battery to operate. This feature makes reed switches the preferred switch technology chosen by design engineers when power conservation is critical for a particular device or product development.

Hermetic's magnet product line expansion comes as a result of increased demand for additional options from customers in reed switch applications, as well as from other magnet applications in electronics, research, scientific and educational sectors.

Prices on Hermetic's magnets range from pennies to dollars (US Funds) per unit, depending on size, shape, gauss strength and order quantity. More sizes and shapes will be added to Hermetic's magnet product line as customer demand drives the inclusion of more options. For technical information on the magnets go to .
