1. Extreme care must be taken when cutting or bending the lead legs of a reed switch to avoid undue stress and damage to the glass-to-metal seal. Appropriate clamping tools must be used
2. The exposure to temperature and long exposure times may cause damage to the glass-to-metal seal (cracking, leaking, etc.). Therefore, fast and reliable welding techniques (processes) must be used. The recommended welding conditions are: 280-300°C for hand welding and 250-300°C for wave welding.
