Our group of companies practices systematic environmental protection in all areas and we are fully aware that as a global organization our standards and behaviour have a direct and indirect impact on our environment.
We are committed to continuously reduce our negative environmental footprint without compromising the quality and availability of our products or the safety of our employees. These are our sustainability development goals for all PIC Group manufacturing sites:
Sustainable Sensor Systems
The Reed Switch itself and its usage is sustainable, energy-efficient and environmental friendly.
The Reed Switch consists of merely glass and metal and hence it is "as easy to recycle as bottles and cans." Yet another advantage is the low weight with constant miniaturisation: Thus, our PMC-0701S weights merely 0.03 gm.
No micro emissions
The hermetically sealed Reed Switch does not produce any micro emissions (like Ozone, notrogen oxides).
No power consumption in stand-by mode
In contrast to active electronic systems, Reed Switches do not require any separate power supply.
The zero-energy component!
Immune to ESD
Reed Switches are, by large, immune to ESD.
Additional safety components and shielding arrangements are not necessary anymore
Reed Switch technology permits space-saving developments using the bare minimun of external components.
The less the merrier!
Negligible heat dissipation
While semiconductors often become perceptibly hot, the Reed Switch remains absolutely cool and reduces measures required for cooling.
Heat sinks goodbye!
