C&K has introduced KSC PF series potting friendly tactile switches

C&K KSC PF Series Potting Friendly Tactile Switches

Designers of applications in the automotive and medical device industries often need to ensure that the switches and components they use can withstand harsh environments – including liquids that could leak in during everyday use, or during the after-use cleaning process, that could damage the products. The KSC PF switch is the first in the industry to be constructed to meet the size and performance requirements of products with small surface areas, while also withstanding harsh elements such as liquid and vibration.

C&K's has developed the KSC PF series, a unique combination of the compact form factor (6.2 x 6.2 x 5.2 mm) SMT soft actuator tactile switch with the potting friendly extended cage. KSC PF series decreases potting level tolerance, enabling faster production and increased quality level. Its compact size leads to an easier integration through pre / post travel for an improved customer perception as well as higher reliability for your application.
