C and K Intros Sealed Tactile Switch
Versatile tactile pushbutton switch.
Newton, MA — C and K Components has expanded its popular KSC Series sealed tactile switch offering to include a version with customizable actuation and button height. The surface-mountable KSC9 Series switch delivers a specific actuator with a groove for button clipping and compatibility.

The IP67-sealed tactile switch has a special design that provides simple integration by way of adjustable height with buttons, full SMD pick-and-place capability, and overload resistance.

The rugged switches have an extended life expectancy of 300,000 actuations, making them suitable for harsh environment applications including industrial electronics, network equipment, and telecommunications devices.

The new switch is fully compatible for mixing and matching with existing KSC Series designs, and its customizable options give it the ability to satisfy virtually any haptic requirement in a variety of harsh environment applications.

The SPST momentary switch improves upon other available designs by sustaining better guidance and tactile effects with top actuation capacity. The operating temperature range is -40 to +85°C but can work in specific applications under a peak of up to +125°C. The operating force of the switch is 2N, 3N, and 4N.
