C&K Components Develops New 'Clickable' Switch Concept For Complex Automotive Human Machine Interfaces
(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 06 April 2012
Release date- 02042012 - C&K Components, a leading global manufacturer of electromechanical switches and smart card interconnect devices, has developed a new component concept for complex automotive human machine interfaces (HMIs).
Designated the CLK Series, the energy-free electromechanical device provides consistent, self-guided motion with uniform haptic feedback for automotive touch-sensing HMI applications. Automotive HMIs that feature capacitive controls, such as touchpads or touchscreens, can integrate the CLK Series inside their architecture to make them 'clickable'.
'By providing an energy-free tact switch solution that delivers 'clickable' functionality and excellent haptic feedback, our CLK Series offers a unique alternative to other HMI-integrated component concepts,' said Eric Grange, senior product manager at C&K Components. 'In addition, the CLK Series is adaptable to any surface size, opening new possibilities for car interior systems.'
The advanced CLK Series switches contain a patented mechanical structure interfaced with haptic elements, such as a tact switch, that complements a touch surface and allows for its motion. The CLK Series offers a scalable design architecture that is customizable for different types of automotive controls that require specific size and haptic feedback.
