C&K, a manufacturer of high reliability electromechanical switches, has developed an illuminated keyswitch series that offers smooth, positive tactile feedback with a clear tactile sound for enhanced ergonomics and ease of use.

The D6 Series illuminated keyswitch features an integrated LED, reducing costs and simplifying the design of the illumination path. As a result, the D6 Series is used in a wide range of panel applications including appliances, electronic games, industrial, medical, security and video and test equipment.

The illuminated D6 Series keyswitch simplifies customisation and integration. The keyswitch is designed to enable easy X, Y coding on a single side PCB. In addition, the D6 Series provides direct actuation without interface.

The illuminated keyswitch is available in a wide range of colours, including bi colours.

The D6 Series offers a mechanical life up to 100K cycles and the switch has an operating temperature of -20°C to 60°C.
