C&K Components has developed a series of vertical and right angle illuminated tactile switches for a wide range of applications. Designated the Illuminated Tactile Switch Series, the switches are available in many different single LED colours and bi-colour options that are independent from the switching function.
The ITS Series features a dome contact that provides crisp tactile feedback to positively indicate circuit transfer and to assure high reliability and long life of up to 50,000 operations. The advanced ITS Series design employs insert-molded terminals to lock out flux, solvents, and other contaminants used with automated soldering processes.
In addition, the ITS Series can be customized to meet application requirements. Custom caps and legends are available upon request. Offered in thru-hole and SMT termination styles, the ITS Switch Series is pick and place compatible for SMT versions, as the tape and reel packaging allows for rapid automated placement of SMT devices with the removable pick and place cap supplied.
We have expanded our tactile product offering to include illuminated versions in order meet the customization needs of our customers, said Kyle Peterson, product manger at C&K. The Illuminated Tactile Switch Series offers limitless LED colour options combined with reliability and longevity.
The ITS Series is ideal for a broad range of applications including consumer electronics, server/storage, medical devices, test/measurement/instrumentation, audio/video, computers and peripherals, appliances, security and network infrastructure.
