C&K: KSC11 Long Life Tactile Switch


May 30, 2022

C&K has recently extended its KSC product series with a hard actuator and up to three million actuation cycles. With its hard actuator, KSC11 offers a high tactile ratio without sacrificing its lifetime.  With competitors switches lasting 1,000,000 cycles in the best case, the KSC11 has tripled the lifespan. Offering the most cycles for a tactile switch with a hard actuator ensures your product will continue to perform for as long as needed.

The KSC11 Series is a 6.2 x 6.2mm tactile switch designed for high-end customizable products.  End product designs like Industrial, aviation, audio-video consoles, drones and gaming controllers will benefit from the long life and tactile feel of the KSC11

Offering multiple options for actuation force (1.6N, 3.2N & 5N), the KSC11 Series provides flexibility when finding the right version for designs.  With its short travel 0.2 to 0.4 mm, crisp feeling, and audible sound, the user has perfect control of the equipment via the interface using the KSC11 switches.

“This is mainly the case for switches used in professional or safety applications” explained Regis Clement, Product Manager at C&K. “Working with clients and receiving feedback has allowed us to develop a solution with the best feeling and sounding switch for products used everyday.”

If you are you looking for the best compromise between short travel, high tactile ratio, long life and IP67 sealing – the KSC11 is right for you.
