These sewable magnetic switches from Kitronik can be used to switch on LEDs when the magnet is placed near the switch. The magnet is included.

It has two connection points to which the conductive thread is connected. The PCBs are double sided making the conductive thread connection very reliable (see example picture below).


  • Double Sided PCBs for reliable connections.


  • 1 x Ultra Slim Magnetic Switch.
  • 1 x Magnet.


  • Length: 25mm.
  • Width: 6mm.
  • Height: 3mm.


Example Circuit:.

For illustration only, not actual components provided.

Physical characteristics:

  • Length: 25mm.
  • Width: 6mm.
  • Height: 3mm.

Electrical characteristics:

  • Maximum Switch Rating Voltage DC: 200V.
  • Maximum Switch Rating Current: 1A.
  • Contact Rating: 20W.
  • Note: No combination of V & A to exceed contact rating i.e. 200V x 0.1A = 20W.

Hi I need to switch the LEDS on when the magnet is in open position? Can you get it to work in this way?? Are there any other products that can turn a LED on when a magnet is open? Thanks

    You are able to have a circuit working while a switch is open, it just requires a few additional components. An example of the circuit required can be seen here,

Hi I need the switch to switch the LEDs ON when the magnet is removed? Can this component work in this way?

    Unfortunately this isn?t easily doable. You could do it if you used something like a lilypad Arduino, you could write a program so the lights were on unless the switch was on.
