Electric rice cookers are popular appliances that are used for cooking. Because this is a pressure cooker it relies on a properly sealed compartment that maintains a high pressure; pressure built up within the cooker if the lid is not properly locked could blow open. By using reed sensors and switches the lid can be detected to assure it is in the properly closed position before the rice cooker can be started. This application note has suggestions of components that can be used.
Reed switches and sensors are highly effective solutions for flow and sensing applications that can be used for detecting the presence of fluid flow in a system or even measure the rate of fluid flow. This application note provides suggested sensors and reed switches.
Article will discuss how to select digital and analog sensors for appliance designs that utilized magnetic sensing technology. In addition to defining and describing the benefits of Hall Effect sensors and reed switches, it will provide examples of appliance designs that incorporate these sensors.
