Comus Switches

Comus_email_BannerComus offers a variety of switches made to fit your individual application needs. All COMUS switches are as CUSTOMIZABLE as each design. Please ASK Gopher for a unique Sample/Quote on these types of switches:

Reed Switches

Reed switches consist of two or three ferromagnetic blades (or reeds) hermetically sealed inside a glass envelope. The construction ensures protection from the external environment. Three types are available: Form A (normally open), Form B (normally closed), and Form C (changeover). Various voltage current switching levels are available and contact plating materials can be varied to accommodate specific types of loads.

Flat Switches

Reed float switches are designed to fit into tanks or containers containing liquid. They are operated by a magnet fitted into the float assembly and a Reed Switch fitted into the stem of the float body. When the float moves past the Reed Switch inside the float body, the reed contacts operate (open or close). When the float moves back to its original position, the reed switch contacts will also return to their original state.

High Breakdown Switches

The HBS line of reed switches is Comus’ answer to the market demands for a lower cost reed switch that is still capable of handling high voltage applications. The HBS line of reed switches is ideal for certain markets such as Medical applications; for example defibrillation equipment where high reliability and excellent quality is absolutely essential.

Magnetic Proximity Switches

Reed Proximity Switches are operated by a moving magnet and can be used to detect many directions of movement. When the magnet reaches the operating distance from the reed switch, the reed switch contacts will operate (open or close). Moving the magnet away will cause the reed switch contacts to switch back to their original position.

Tilt Switches

Tilt switches are used to sense movement (tilt) of a device above and below a horizontal axis. The angle through which the switch must move for proper operation (the differential angle) is measured from the point of just make to just break; it is specified as a maximum. When selecting a tilt switch, it is important to ensure that the operating mechanism can move the switch through an angle greater than the differential angle.

Flow Switches

The Flow Switch is designed to fit into a Tee connector within the pipework. The paddle section can be adjusted depending on the size of the pipe. It operates as water flows through the pipe, pushing the paddle up, triggering the switch.
