Sensors and switches make their way into many types of consumer electronics. Just about any application involving movement or the the need to switch something on and off. No matter how small the device, MEDER has a switch or sensor suited for these types of applications.
A proximity sensor used in a cell phone or digital camera has a switch housed in the device and a permanent magnet positioned within the moving screen. Once the screen is rotated or slid to one side the magnet lines up with the switch contacts causing the screen to activate the phone or camera.
Another use for a reed sensor in a cell phone is when the phone is used with a docking station. When the phone is place into the docking station, the magnet activates the switch causing the phone to go into hands-free mode or switches into car mode for the use of a global positioning system GPS.
