Electronic Brick - Magnetic Sensor/Switch Brick

:SEN05018
€2.03

The sensor is a double-ended type and may be actuated with an electromagnet, a permanent magnet or a combination of both.

Quantity

It is based on encapsulated dry reed switch CT10. CT10 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.

 

Features

  • Electronic Brick interface
  • Minimum external parts
  • 10W rating
  • Rugged encapsulation

 

Programming

Connect the module with Arduino The program below shows how to use the Magnetic switch to control the led. When you put a magnet that has enough magnetic power close to the module, the switch is closed .Then the S pin out put a high voltage. You can use this to control the led.
