The CT05 (See Datasheet) is a molded dry reed switch. It is single-pole, single throw (SPST) type, having normally open ruthenium contacts. The sensor is a double-ended type and may be actuated with an electromagnet, a permanent magnet or a combination of both. The device is designed for SMD mounting and is available in Gull Wing or J-lead configurations.
A complete part number is represented by the digits to the right of the CT05 series prefix followed by a suffix as shown below. EXAMPLE: CT05-3050-G1 is • a CT05 sensor (5mm encapsulated switch) • with a sensitivity range from 30 to 50AT • lead ends are formed according to the G1 version • CT05-XXXX (0001-1999) without a suffix is a customer special.
