Hi guys,

I have a solution already (using regular power relays), but I'm also wondering if there is a company who specializes in high-power REED switches.

I'm switching a battery: +32V, -32V. Will be pulling 8+ amps on each line. Realestate is low.

Can't seem to find any company on the net who makes reed switches like this.

I never heard of reed switches in that Amp range, they usually go to 1/2 Amp or so.
If you want a sealed switch for spark suppression, you could use a mercury switch.

If size is your problem, consider that a reed switch is not much smaller than a relay by the time you add the coil or magnet to operate it.
