C&K has produced a new navigation switch, the SAMXD (Seat Adjustment Module Dustproof). Ideal for automotive applications, the device has multiple options for actuator position and shape. The navigation switches are directly driving the electric motors, eliminating the requirement for relays, providing for space and cost savings.
Providing expertise obtained from the previously launched SAM Series, the dust protection and end stop addition increases the product offering compared to competitors.
The switch offers two actuation forces (5.3N and 6N) and two actuator positions, left and middle. In addition to multiple actuator positions, there are also two actuator shapes, square and round.
“The SAMXD series Navigation Switch allows for the designer to have flexibility to design the switch into automotive seats,” said Jerome Smolinski, global product manager at C&K. “We are proud to extend and improve the SAM switch family with feedback from current customers.”
