Digi-Key expands C&K Components prod line


Electronics CEL

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, has expanded its inventory of products from global supplier partner C&K Components.

Featured in Digi-Key’s print and online catalogs, C&K Components’ products are available for purchase in both prototype and production quantities on Digi-Key’s global websites.

Digi-Key is currently exclusive in the stocking of C&K Components’ recently introduced family of switches for severe operating conditions and heavy-duty applications, including industrial controls, farm machinery, and off-road vehicles. Series in this family include:

·    ESM and DSM Series – The ESM and DSM Series devices are single and double switch modules, supplied ready to install with optional cables or connectors. Protected by silicon rubber caps and sealed to IP 65 when mounted, these modules are ideal for situations where dust, water, oil, or solvents could adversely affect the function of standard switches.

RS and QS Series – Designed for use in front panels, multi-function grips or other switching units, the RS and QS Series switches provide tactile feedback and positive snap-point actions. The RS Series comprises two bi-directional switch models – the RS1, with a single switch function in both directions, and the RS2, which has a double function in both directions. The two QS models are quadrant switches, with either single function (four K12 switches) or double functions (eight K12 switches) in each of four different directions: up, down, left, or right.


SR3 Series – The SR3 Series rocker switches are ideal for typical switching functions in off-road machinery such as dashboards, armrest controls, or multifunction grips. Based on highly reliable K12 switch technology, these robust rocker switches have an operating life of more than one million cycles.

AR3 and AR5 Series – C&K’s AR3 and AR5 Series analog rocker switches provide an ideal proportional function solution and are cost effective for off-road vehicle applications. Both feature Hall-Effect contactless sensing, with one sensor as standard and an optional second sensor if required. The AR3 Series rockers are available with three different actuator styles. The AR3 and AR5 fingertip rockers are extremely durable, with a rocker life of more than 2 million cycles, short circuit protection and integrated temperature compensation.
