C&K Components (Newton, MA) has expanded its K12S Series harsh environment surface mount key switch family with improved illumination, environmental sealing, and actuation options. By employing an advanced material that provides better transparency while withstanding high reflow temperatures, C&K has enhanced the luminosity of the K12S Series switches, with a choice of six standard LED colors to accommodate specific customer application requirements. The entire line of K12S Series key switches feature:
- Gold-plated, self-cleaning contacts with low contact resistance (<100 mΩ).
- An overload resistance of 100N & life cycles of 1,000,000.
- A low PCB-mounted profile.
