HOW IT WORKS: Construction

THE BASIS OF THE TECHNOLOGY is a magnetic sphere, or ball contact housed in a durable metal housing. Completing the switch is a seal that contains the contacting electrode, insulated from the magnetic perimeter by a ceramic to metal bond. The case or seal provide the second contact point required to complete the electrical circuit. The seal/electrode cap is welded to the housing in an inert atmosphere providing a hermetically sealed contact. Post-assembly magnetizing activates the magnetic properties of the contact.
