New switch targets demanding applications

C&K has launched a 5 million cycle version of its KSC Tireless Endurance switch, with higher actuation forces at 2.8N and 4N in a 6mm x 6mm form factor.

With three choices of actuation forces (1.6N, 2.8N, and 4N), the KSC TE extends C&K's high lifecycle miniature tactile switch product portfolio and provides design engineers with more choice.

In addition, by offering much longer lifecycles, the KSC TE helps ease the design cycle and are intended for a wide range of demanding applications in the industrial, elevator, gaming, and computer peripherals markets.

With ultra-long reliability, there is less need for costly maintenance or replacement. Its compact size of 6.3 x 6.2 x 3.5 mm gives designers more room to add additional functionality to their units or to reduce their PCB size.

The soft actuator allows for easier tolerance management with possible pre-load, and at an IP67 rating it offers strong protection against dust and water ingress.
