Detect Switches

With 19 different series of standard detector switches, C&K offers the widest selection of SMT, through-hole, panel, snap-in/package, and screw-mount versions. C&K's detector switches are offered in a variety of sizes and shapes, with different actuator orientations including vertical or horizontal, top or side, or right angle or left, and soft actuation. These detector switches include low-profile, compact, micro and ultra-miniature designs, with some sealed versions available.

Choose from traditional detector switches, snap-action switches, tactile switches, magnetic reed switches or door interlocks for your optimal detector switch solution.  In general, C&K detector switches operate at low current, require less space, and offer higher life cycles (100k ~ 1M).
