INVENTION: The Reed Switch

BMS Reed vs. MAGNASPHERE HSS

INVENTED IN THE 1970’s TO OVERCOME THE SINGLE REED SWITCH contact security vulnerabilities, the balanced magnetic switch (BMS) contact has since become the common device used to detect doorway breaches in high security facilities. Despite its widespread acceptance, the reed switch contact’s exploitable operational flaw and constructional weaknesses undermine its ability to effectively act as a security system’s first line of defense, compromising the integrity of the entire intrusion detection system.
