ITS series illuminated tact switch

It can sometimes be difficult to find a tactile switch that is both illuminated and right-angle but also has SMT terminals.

With the ITS series, C&K is a leading provider for applications requiring such kind of switches. In addition to 3 other thru-hole and 2 other SMT mounting styles, C&K offers this hard to find illuminated right-angle, SMT option. The small 6,7mm x 6,65mm package size will use less space on your PCB than a traditional thru-hole part, allowing more room for other components or an overall smaller board size. The ITS tactile switch is offered in all the common single and bi-color LED's along with several optional caps, to install after processing. It comes in tape and reel packaging and is compatible with pick and place assembly.

The ITS series is available in 2 actuation forces, 160gm or 220gm for crisp tactile feedback. The ITS has an electrical rating of 50mA @ 12VDC and operating life of 50 000 cycles.

C&K has introduced ITS series illuminated tact switch with with SMT terminals.
