KSC-DCT Tactile Switch

C&K's dual-circuit technology tact switch is a significant addition to its extensive KSC range of tactile switches.

The KSC-DCT tact switch offers SPDT NC-NO dual-circuit functionality that provides two outputs from a single input. Housed in a tiny 6.2 mm x 6.2 mm x 2.9 mm PCB-mount package, the silicone 70 SH actuator included in the package extends the height to 5.2 mm above the PCB surface for easy operation and easier integration through pre/post travel.

Rated for 300,000 operations, the switches require an operating force of 4.75 N and provide a nominal travel distance of 0.85 mm. Incorporating C&K Switches' industry-recognized haptics, the KSC-DCT switches provide excellent levels of feedback when pressed.

These switches are IP67 sealed and operate over the temperature range -40°C to +85°C, making them suitable for use in harsh environments, especially those found in automotive, industrial and medical applications.

The lead-free reflow-compatible KSC-DCT switches are supplied in reels of 1,000 pieces for easy automated pick-and-place processing.
