C&K expands soft feedback tact switch family

C&K has added its tactile switch offering and now includes a low sound, long travel and positive tactile feedback version.

The Tact Low Sound (TLS) Series provides advanced haptic communication with ultra-soft feedback that can be customised to meet vehicle interior requirements.

The compact switch with J leads gives engineers flexibility to reduce the size of the printed circuit board, or add functionality to the design. The IP54 sealed switch offers protection against dust, liquid and humidity. Rated to 500K cycles, the TLS Series ensures high reliability and long-life performance.

The TLS Series switch is available in two versions, the STD model delivers 50% tactile feeling with 0.9 mm travel and an actuation force of 4, 7 or 10N. The low tactile version features 30% tactile feeling while other characteristics remain the same. The pre-travel allows easy integration by compensating tolerances of other components included in the application.

The TLS Series is commonly designed into vehicle consoles, panels, steering wheels, paddles, window lifters, seat adjusters, and other in-cabin applications.

The TLS Series has an operating temperature of -40°C to 90°C, a power value of 10 mu VA min. / 0.8 VA max, a voltage of DC 1V min. / 16 V max, and a current rating of 10 mu A min. / 50 mA max.
