WALTHAM, Mass – May 20, 2021 – C&K, a leading manufacturer of high-quality electromechanical switches, has developed a single pole double throw (SPDT) tactile switch designed for elevator buttons, gaming controllers and the industrial market. The TLSM Series SPDT tact switch combines a space-saving design with high reliability all within a compact design that is only 6.0mm x 6.1mm.

At only 6.0 mm x 6.1 mm x 3.45 mm, the TLSM Series features a soft actuator that raises a mere 3.45 mm above the PCB for valuable PCB saving and customer system space saving. Supporting 3 million cycles, the low profile switches are commonly used in elevator buttons, gaming controllers, industrial applications, accessories and more.

Offering higher reliability compared to traditional miniature tact switches, the top actuated TLSM Series switch is available with momentary action.  The SMT tactile switches provide full integration into reflow soldering standard processes, reducing time and costs for OEMs.

“The compact top mount endurance SMT TLSM Series increases reliability, and allows for two signals which is ideal for a multitude of applications,” said Daisy Liu, Global Product Manager at C&K. “We are proud to introduce the TLSM switch family to enable customers to reduce the size and height of their end products without compromising performance and reliability.”
