Dual-circuit tact switch

27 March 2019 Switches, Relays & Keypads

C&K has extended its KSC range of tactile switches with the addition of a new dual-circuit model. The new KSC-DCT tact switches offer single-pole double-throw, normally-closed normally-open dual-circuit functionality that provides two outputs from a single input.

Housed in a tiny 6,2 x 6,2 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 switches require an operating force of 4,75 N and provide a nominal travel distance of 0,85 mm.

The switches are IP67 sealed and operate over the temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, making them suitable for use in harsh environments, such as those found in automotive, industrial and medical applications.
