C&K’s New KSC PF Switch is Compact, Water Resiliant and Potting Friendly

August 8th, 2018

The new KSC PF switch provides designers with a next-generation switch solution that is compact yet resilient to water ingression – and made to be potting friendly.

Features include:

  • Unique combination of a compact form factor (6.2 x 6.2 x 5.2mm)
  • IP67 sealed with life cycles up to 1,000,000
  • SMT soft actuator tactile switch with a potting friendly extended cage, which decreases potting level tolerance, enables faster production and increases quality. Potting is often necessary to ensure complete protection while a sealed switch is in use – but potting levels are typically difficult to control in production. In addition, the traditional method of using a flat switch top risks the possibility of potting moving inward and blocking the actuator. By incorporating an extended cage, this issue is avoided.
