C&K Components announces its KSJ Series of versatile silent detect switches with a variety of orientations. The single pole, single throw, normally open detect switch features high actuation tolerances along with silent and linear operation during actuation with no tactile effect. As an automotive-grade product, typical applications for the series include retractable dashboard LCD end of stroke detection, defroster positioning in HVAC rotating buttons and passenger airbag switches. The switches are also suitable for computer infrastructures and industrial electronics such as rotating and sliding button end-of-stroke position detection. Voltage range for the detect switches is 20 mV to 32 VDC, and the current ranges from 1 mA to 50 mA.
