Founders of Magnasphere® Corp., Waukesha, Wis., have taken decades-old Reed switch detection technology for security contacts to new heights. Originally developed by Bell Labs in the late 1930s, Reed switches had three weaknesses: easy potential defeat with magnets; permanent contact weld failure from lightening and power surges; and fragile glass construction. Concealed and surface-mount sensors with Magnasphere’s magnet ball contact technology are resistant to these weaknesses, making it a higher security application product.
