Tunable Tactile Switches Enable Additional Sound Effects In Applications
C&K Components has developed a series of sound tunable tactile switches, designated the KSC ST Series. The design of the switch enables the sound intensity to be 100 percent controlled, with the ability to match the sound level of applications with two sound intensity grades. The company is also able to ensure continuity of the sound when a printed circuit board is populated with a number of switches. The KSC ST Series switches feature a range of sound levels from high (>50 dBa) to low (<30dBa) sound intensity levels. The high reliability switches meet IP67 approvals and are available in J or G terminations with silver or gold platings. The KSC ST Series sound tunable switches are appropriate for a variety of automotive applications including steering wheels, HVAC, dashboards, door, seat and sunroof modules, as well as industrial control panels and medical and consumer applications. Pricing starts at $0.19 in quantities of 10K to 100K.
