C&K switches for medical application

Few industries can be considered as “mission critical” as medical products.  With a rapidly aging global population, today’s medical devices are expected to perform at higher levels than ever before. Whether it’s a blood glucose monitor for a diabetic patient or a surgical robot for a cardiac procedure, lives are at stake if these devices fail to function properly. 

C&K products are designed to be small, corrosion resistant to body fluids, and perform reliably at a high level over the life of the product. Popular products found in medical applications include:
