C&K has designed an illuminated keyswitch series that provides smooth, positive tactile feedback with a clear tactile sound for exceptional ergonomics and ease of use. The D6 Series illuminated keyswitch provides an integrated LED, decreasing costs and simplifying the design of the illumination path. As a result, the series is employed in a broad range of panel applications including appliances, electronic games, industrial, security and video, medical, test equipment, and more.


The illuminated keyswitch simplifies customisation and integration. The keyswitch is created to allow easy X, Y coding on a single side PCB. Also, the series offers direct actuation without interface.


The illuminated keyswitch is offered in a broad range of colours, including bi colours.
