C&K Develops Analog and Switch Rockers for  Heavy-Duty Industrial, Off-Highway Applications
C&K Components has developed two new families of high-reliability rocker switches. Designated the AR3 and SR3 Series, the analog and switch rockers feature life cycles to two million and one million actuations, respectively.
“The AR3 and SR3 rocker switches were developed specifically to provide the reliability required in demanding environmental conditions, including standard and custom armrest and dashboard controls, and multifunction grips in industrial and off-highway applications,” said Kyle Peterson, worldwide product manager for C&K Components.

The AR3 Series analog rockers feature Hall-effect contactless sensing technology, with one sensor as standard and an optional second sensor for redundancy. The AR3 switch is also designed with integrated temperature compensation and short circuit protection.

RoHS-compliant and compatible, operating force for the AR3 Series rockers ranges from 4N to 6N, with a maximum vertical load of 30N. The switches are also sealed to IP65 specifications. Rocker deflection angle is ±30º and working operating temperature ranges from -35ºC to +70ºC.

The SR3 Series switch rockers feature precise tactile feedback and incorporate C&K’s proven K12 switch technology for increased reliability. IP65-protected, the switch rockers feature an operating force of 5N, maximum vertical load of 30N, and a rocker deflection angle of ±12º. Working operating temperature ranges from -35ºC to +70ºC.
