C&K develops Compact 3- and 5-way for consumer electronics applications.
C&K Components has developed a series of 3- and 5-way navigation switches that feature push and rotary functions with 24 detents at 12 pulses in a compact and slim design, freeing up space on the PC board for miniature consumer electronics. Designated the TSW series, the navigation switches offer through-hole termination.
The TSW A-3N-C LFS 3-way navigation switch features one central select and a 2-way 360º rotation. The maximum operating force is rated at 60g-cm for rotary actuation and 220g to 50g for push actuation. The TSW B-3N-C LFS 5-way navigation switch features one central select and a 2-way 360º rotation with additional four tactile directions on the outside ring. The rotary actuating force is 50g-cm with a maximum push actuating force of 300g.
The TSW series has an electrical life of 1,000,000 cycles with a maximum contact resistance of 300 mΩ. The switch’s electrical rating is 1mA at 10VDC and operating temperature ranges from -0ºC to +40ºC.
