Multiple Reed Switch

A plurality of reed switches 1 is inserted side-by-side in contiguous parallel bores 2 through a common nylon bobbin 3. These switches are concurrently activated by a single coil 4 wound around the bobbin.

Each read switch 1 has an axial lead 5 and a lead 6 with a right-angle bend. Each lead 5 projects through an eye 7 in a bayonet-type lead terminal 8, after the terminals have been wedged into respective slots 9 in one end of the bobbin. The ends of coil 4 (or coils) are connectable to desired ones of four bayonet-type coil terminals 10 (only two of which are shown) inserted in respective slots 11.

The slotted end (at 9) of the bobbin is dipped into a solder bath to dip-solder the leads 5 to the corresponding terminals 8. The terminals 8, 10 and the leads 6 all project below the bobbin and are insertable into holes through a carrier, such as a printed circuit card 12. They are then fixed to the carrier by dip-soldering.
