Aircraft switches

 Whether it’s the cockpit or the in-flight entertainment and comfort systems, today’s airplanes have technological advances crammed into every inch of the vehicle. Aircraft engineers need to ensure that the controls, buttons, handles and notifications they design are easy to use, reliable and very effective when used thousands of times at high altitudes in a fast-moving object. At the same time, the experience that can be offered to passengers has become one of the only competitive differences left between airlines, which means all the latest bells and whistles for passengers need to be designed in as well. 

C&K’s portfolio of high-quality, high-performance and reliable aviation-specific switches include those for instrument panel and overhead controls, aircraft cockpit controls, aircraft cockpit keyboards, infotainment switching, passenger service unit, seat belt latch verification and seat occupancy detection. The company’s switches are made to withstand even the harshest environments and conditions – including repeated use during long flights.
