Reed Sensor and Magnet – Flush with Surface, when Installed

The LD1401 magnet & reed sensor kit is used to detect door opening/closing for control of interior cabinet lighting. The kits can be installed on multiple doors for control of a single light. Open any door light comes on, close all doors light goes off. The LD1401 is identical to the LD1400 except for a slight flange on one end allowing the parts to sit flush with the surface. The parts are best suited for retrofitting to cabinets which have already been installed onsite. There are various magnet/reed sensor configurations that can be employed as shown in this brochure.


  • The magnet is placed in the door and the reed sensor is placed in the carcass.
  • Mounting hole: 10mm. Magnet and sensor: cylindrical, 9.5mm dia x 30mm. Flange 11mm dia.
  • Silent when operating with a lifespan greater than 10 million operations.
  • Works across gaps up to 35mm on hinged, sliding or bi-fold doors. Gap can be increased with stronger magnet.
  • Requires solid-state switching controller either LD2015 or LD2000-A.
  • Includes magnet and reed sensor with 2 metre lead and plug.
