COTO RI-26AA

RI-26 Series Dry Reed Switch
RI-26 Series
Close differential micro dry-reed switch hermetically sealed in a gas-filled
glass envelope. Single-pole, single-throw (SPST) type, having normally
open contacts, and containing two magnetically actuated reeds.
The switch is of the double-ended type and may be actuated by an electromagnet, a permanent magnet or a combination of both.
The device is intended for use in applications with small hysteresis in
switching behavior.
RI-26 Series Features
Close differential reed switch
Contact layers: gold, sputtered ruthenium
Superior glass-to-metal seal and blade alignment
Excellent life expectancy and reliability
Dimensions in inches (mm)
General data for all models RI-26
AT-Customization / Preformed Leads
Besides the standard models, customized products can
also be supplied offering the following options:
! Operate and release ranges to customer specification
! Cropped and/or preformed leads
Coils
All characteristics are measured using the Philips
Standard Coil. For definitions of the Philips Standard
Coil, refer to “Application Notes” in the Reed Switch
Technical & Application Information Section of this
catalog.
Life expectancy and reliability
The life expectancy data given below are valid for a coil
energized at 1.5 times the published maximum operate
value for each type in the RI-26 series.
No-load conditions (operating frequency: 100 Hz)
Life expectancy: min. 3x108 operations with a failure
rate of less than 0.9x10-9 with a confidence level of
90%.
End of life criteria:
Contact resistance > 1Ω after 2ms
114
Release time > 2ms (latching or contact sticking).
Loaded conditions (resistive load: 20 V; 500 mA;
operating frequency: 125 Hz)
Life expectancy: min. 5x107 operations with a failure
rate of less than 5x10-9 with a confidence level of 90%.
End of life criteria:
Contact resistance > 2Ω after 2.5 ms
Release time > 2.5 ms (latching or contact sticking).
Switching different loads involves different life expectancy and reliability data. Further information is available on request.
Mechanical Data
Contact arrangement is normally open; lead finish is
tinned; net mass is approximately 190 mg; and can be
mounted in any position.
Shock
The switches are tested in accordance with “IEC 68-227”, test Ea (peak acceleration 50 G, half sinewave;
duration 11 ms). Such a shock will not cause an open
switch (no magnetic field present) to close, nor a switch
kept closed by an 80 AT coil to open.

RI-26 Series Dry Reed Switch
Vibration
The switches are tested in accordance with “IEC 68-26”, test Fc (acceleration 10 G; below cross-over frequency 58 Hz; amplitude 0.75 mm; frequency range 10
to 2000 Hz, duration 75 minutes in each direction).
Such a vibration will not cause an open switch (no
magnetic field present) to close, nor a switch kept
closed by an 80 AT coil to open.
with “IEC 68-2-20”, test Tb, method 1B: solder bath at
350 ±10°C for 3.5 ±0.5 s. Solderability is tested in
accordance with “IEC 68-2-20”, test Ta, method 3:
solder globule temperature 235°C; ageing 1b: 4 hours
steam.
Welding
The leads can be welded.
Mechanical Strength
The robustness of the terminations is tested in accordance with “IEC 68-2-21”, test Ua1 (load 40 N).
Operating and Storage Temperature
Operating ambient temperature; min: -55°C;
max: +125°C.
Storage temperature; min: -55°C; max: +125°C.
Note: Temperature excursions up to 150°C may be
permissible. For more information contact your nearest
Coto Technology sales office.
Mounting
The leads should not be bent closer than 1 mm to the
glass-to-metal seals. Stress on the seals should be
avoided. Care must be taken to prevent stray magnetic
fields from influencing the operating and measuring
conditions.
Soldering
The switch can withstand soldering heat in accordance
