C&K Expands Actuation Forces for Microminiature Tactile Switches
September 26, 2021
C&K has launched the microminiature RKC2 Series of tactile switches for devices where space efficiency is crucial. Expanding on the RK Series, the RKC2 features a low profile of only 1.7mm to allow the PCB to sit closer to the surface of the device and allow more space for other necessary components.
With a small footprint of 3.5 mm x 2.7 mm, the RKC2 Series is designed for small electronics like IoT devices, medical devices and more. The RKC2 utilizes a hard actuator, which offers space-savings and allows designers to save cost on integrating additional interface buttons.
Available with four different actuation forces, including 180gf, 250gf, 350gf and 500gf, the RKC2 Series tactile switch ensures users experience the right tactile feel for the end-device.
“The RKC2 is a great addition to our growing line of microminiature tactile switches. Products have more and more functionality, while maintaining a small form factor, so meeting space constraints is important,” said Daisy Liu, Global Product Manager at C&K, “The small size available allows our switches to be integrated into various design preferences in the market.”
