MAGNASPHERE provides the same level of external magnetic defeat protection found in USA's Federal Government’s most secure installations, whilst reed switches are valuable to security breaches.

Since the 1970’s many have discovered how easy it was to defeat a reed switch contact, the US Government demanded a more effective countermeasure to protect its highest classified areas.

While these magnetic defeat resistant devices are now commonly used to detect breaches in high security facilities, their high cost and large size made them an impractical security solution for most residential applications.

Resistant to external magnetic defeat tampering and virtually unbreakable, MAGNASPHERE’s patented “reed switch free” technology provides the absolute highest level of intrusion detection available to any security system owner today. In fact, MAGNASPHERE provides the same level of external magnetic defeat protection found in the Federal Government’s most secure installations, but at a fraction of the cost and size.

MAGNASPHERE Corp. realized that many of the same features that provide the security benefits of the MAGNASPHERE switch, were also important benefits for switches used in non-security applications – the robust construction, directional sense zone, and another feature, the ability to sense a ferrous metal target.This ferrous proximity sensing feature truly sets the MAGNASPHERE technology apart from other magnetic switching technologies and has opened the door for endless potential applications in the industrial and commercial product marketplace such as:

  • Automotive
  • Medical
  • Aerospace
  • Gas and Oil
  • Agricultural
  • Military
  • Manufacturing
  • Robotics

The video demonstrates the operation of a typical reed switch security contact vs the anti defeat Magnasphere security contact. Any security contact's location can be located by a simple compass. A strong magnet placed adjacent to it and the contact will hold closed while the door or window is forced open.
