C&K Components develops two series of high-reliability key switches. Designated the K6 and K12 series, the key switches are offered in detect or single- or double-action tactile feedback versions and feature tactile feel for low-level switching applications. Offered with an extensive range of LED colors, travel, and actuator force options, the key switches also feature extended life cycles and sealing to IP67 requirements for use in harsh environments. The versatility and high reliability of these products are suitable for the automotive and off-highway markets’ application-specific needs. Applications for the K6 and K12 key switches include window lifts, seat adjustments, and steering wheel functions in the automotive arena, as well as command panels for off-highway equipment such as excavators, forklifts, and tractors. Actuation force for the momentary action K6 and K12 series key switches range from 1.5 to 9 N, with a mechanical travel range from 1 to 2 mm (0.04 to 0.08 in).
