Compact tact switch targets multiple application markets
Electromechanical switch manufacturer C&K is expanding its KSC range of tactile switches with the new KSC-DCT dual-circuit tact switch. The device comes in a PCB-mount package and is IP67-rated.

The KSC-DCT switches offer SPDT NC-NO dual-circuit functionality that provides two outputs from a single input. Housed in a tiny 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 easy operation and easier integration through pre/post travel. 

Rated for 300,000 operations, the new switches require an operating force of 4.75 N and provide a nominal travel distance of 0.85 mm. Incorporating C&K Switches’ industry-recognized haptics, the KSC-DCT switches provide excellent levels of feedback when pressed. 

The new 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 easy automated pick-and-place processing. For design engineers, 3D models in a variety of file formats are available from the C&K website.
