C&K has introduced a three position push-button with a footprint of only 3.0 x 3.7mm (4.4 x 3.1mm including G-type terminations). Called KXT2 , it is rated for 100,000 cycles. The manufacturer describes it as ‘double-action’ (see diagram): With no force, two of its four pins are shorted. Once 100g of force has been applied, three of its pins are shorted, and by 200g, all four are shorted. “The series also offers two actuation forces, each with their own distinctive and stable tactile feeling, which helps users differentiate between the first and second actions,” said the firm. The push button itself is 1.2mm in diameter, and the switch is 1.05mm high. C&K KXT2 force details are: 100 +/-40g (0.1 +/-0.05mm movement) 200 +/-50g (0.2 +0.1/-0.05mm) Contact ratings are 12Vdc max, 50mA max, <500mΩ, and <10ms bounce. Insulation resistance at 500Vdc is 100MΩ. Operating temperature ...
