'Clickable' switch concept for complex automotive human machine interfaces

April 05, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Designated the CLK Series, the energy-free electromechanical device from C&K Components 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'. 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.
