C&K SDS Series Side Actuated Detect Switches

SDS series side actuated detect switches

Are all server blades fully seated? Has someone tampered with the inside electronics and voided their warranty? These are common questions engineers want answers to before powering up products or doing fault diagnostics.  A detect switch discretely placed within your device will assist with these questions.  

The C&K SDS series is a side actuated,  low profile, small footprint detect switch with a minimum of 1.6 mm of over-travel after switching.  That makes it easy to hide.  It’s a right-angle, SMT switch and will mount well on an edge of your PCB, allowing you to detect the proximity of a moving component relative to a stationary one.
