January 17, 2019 – C&K announced the launch of a dual-circuit technology tact switch as an addition to its KSC range of tactile switches.
The KSC-DCT tact switches offer SPDT NC-NO dual-circuit functionality that provides two outputs from a single input. Housed in a 6.2 mm x 6.2 mm x 2.9 mm PCB-mount package, the silicone 70SH actuator included in the package extends the height to 5.2 mm above the PCB surface for operation and integration through pre/post travel.
Rated for 300,000 operations, the switches require an operating force of 4.75 N and provide a travel distance of 0.85 mm. Incorporating C&K Switches’ haptics, the KSC-DCT switches provide levels of feedback when pressed.
The switches are IP67 sealed and operate over the temperature range -40°C to +85°C, making them suitable for use in harsh environments – especially those found in automotive, industrial and medical applications.
The lead-free reflow-compatible KSC-DCT switches are supplied in reels of 1,000 pcs for automated pick-and-place processing. For design engineers, 3D models in a variety of file formats are available from the C&K website.
