Welcome to MEDER!
Very often it is the smallest things in our life which have the greatest impact. Sometimes we do not even perceive them, although they make our life more convenient and secure. They work in vehicles, safety engineering, household appliances, medical devices, tele-communication and industrial systems of many different varieties.
Precise, reliable and long-lasting.
The miniature switches, sensors and relays work unfailingly and according to the reed principle. Even though they seem simple, they are veritable engineering marvels, which only a handful of companies worldwide are able to produce. And we are one amongst them: MEDER electronic. Products for tomorrow.
MEDER manufactures innovative Reed products for switching, detecting and counting. Our customers all over the world can rely on our high quality standard, which has its origins in the most beautiful areas in Germany – located in the romantic volcanic landscape near the Lake of Constance and the famous scenery of Swiss alps, and in Thuringia with gently rolling hills and forests, where it has gained the fame as the green heart of Germany.
It is a sharp contrast: challenging micromechanics, excellent engineering expertise and meticulous manufacturing coming from this idyll. It is in this legendary south of Germany where we started our first steps in 1987.
At the foot of Hohentwiel, the town of Singen is our headquarter for management, R&D, manufacturing and central logistics, together with millions of reed switches produced per year from our own factory in Grossbreitenbach, Thringia, we have now grown to become a global player in the field of Reed technology. Meder now has branch offices in Switzerland, the Czech, Republic, Italy, France, Great Britain, United States, China and a broad sales network covering all the continents in the world.
30% of our product range are standard items, the rest are produced according to our customers’ specifications. Not only the Reed Switches themselves, but also the final products – sensors and relays – offer high MEDER quality. We work closely with the most important manufacturer of Reed Switches worldwide, OKI Sensor Device Cooperation in Japan. Their Reed Switches complement our own highly innovative and broad range of products.
Reed Switches are used in many different applications, the main markets being:
- Test and measurement
- Security and alarm
- Household appliances
- Medical devices
- Industrial applications
We offer a high availability of our services and products, fast logistics, comprehensive consumer care, modern development and testing equipment, our own Reed Academy, reliability and flexibility. MEDER does not only mean switches of the highest quality. MEDER is your cooperative partner and our focus is the same:
You need Products for tomorrow. And we can supply them today.
Form A = normally open contact (N. O.)
Form B = normally closed contact (N.C.)
Form C = change over contact (S.P.D.T.)
Form E = Bistable / Latching
AT = Ampere Turns; Parameter that describes magnetic sensitivity.
Drop-in replacement SIL ideal for very close stacking matrices
High performance noncontact reed sensors ideal for low power applications
Optimize components and eliminate issues that may result in faulty operations
