Waltham, MA – February 25, 2021 – C&K did it again! After launching the revolutionary KSC TE super durable tact switch (10 million cycles at 1.6N starting force, the highest level in the industry), our new switches are now available in larger 2.8N and 4N 5 million cycles at actuation force—again, these miniature tact switches have the longest lifespan in the industry and are only 6mm x 6mm in size.
KSC TE switches are now available in three actuation force options (1.6N, 2.8N and 4N), expanding C&K’s portfolio of long-life miniature tact switches, allowing design engineers to find the perfect choice. Plus, by significantly extending service life, KSC TE switches help reduce design cycles and outperform the competition with size and force range. These high-performance tact switches are ideal for a variety of demanding applications in the industrial, elevator and gaming industries.
Regis Clement, Global Product Manager at C&K, said: “The name Super Durable says it all, the soft starter and revised internals give KSC TE switches such long life and such high reliability. We are 6mm The first in the × 6mm switch market to offer this solution. This will have a significant impact on the global industry.”
Due to the ultra-high reliability, the need for costly maintenance or replacement of the switch is reduced. Its compact size (only 6.3 × 6.2 × 3.5mm) allows designers more room to add other functions to the device, or reduce the size of the PCB. The soft starter facilitates easy tolerance management where possible with preload, while the IP67 rating also makes it effective against dust and water.
