New SAMXD navigation switch for automotive applications
C&K has developed a new navigation switch, the SAMXD (Seat Adjustment Module Dustproof). Suited for automotive applications, the SAMXD has multiple options for actuator position and shape. The SAMXD navigation switch directly drives the electric motors, removing the need for relays, allowing for space and cost savings.
Offering expertise gained from the previously launched SAM Series, the dust protection and end stop addition strengthens the SAMXD product offering compared to competitors.
The SAMXD offers two actuation forces (5.3N & 6N) and two actuator positions, left and middle. In addition to multiple actuator positions, there are also two actuator shapes, square and round.
“The SAMXD series Navigation Switch allows for the designer to have flexibility to design the switch into automotive seats,” said Jerome Smolinski, Global Product Manager at C&K. “We are proud to extend and improve the SAM switch family with feedback from current customers.”
