Floor Detection in Elevator and Lifts

Latching reed sensors can be mounted on each Floor, and the Magnet on the elevator or lift will actuate them as floors change. Latching reed sensors can be mounted in two ways with respect to the pole of the magnet. Reed Sensors on floor above can be latched and floors below can be unlatched, or vice-versa. The latched and unlatched condition of the sensors can be compared to electronic flip flops with built-in driver circuits, and have the added advantage of switching higher loads.
