Re: Magnetic Reed Switches


Thanks Kevin and Paul,
How would I set up the reed switch to turn on the LEDs by passing a magnet over the car, and then turning them off by passing the magnet over the car a second time? I plan to use 3v coin cell batteries to power a couple of LEDs, but I need to be able to turn them off when the session is complete.

Subject: [WiringForDCC] Magnetic Reed Switches

I would like to use reed switches to control battery powered LEDs in my
passenger cars. I need some help understanding what type on switches to buy
and just how they work using an external magnet. Help greatly appreciated.
