This switch is defined by its seamless integration, direct motor management based on SPDT (single pole, double throw) contacts, and flexible mechanical characteristics including travel, shaft shape and dimensions.  “The ergonomics of electrified switch controls are quite similar among different brands,” explains Norman U, Automotive Solutions Manager, C&K. According to Mr. U, the SAM series switches distinguish themselves from the competition by their easy integration, versatility and durability.

Notable features of the SAM series switch include a two- or four-way actuation, power contact technology for direct motor actuation, direct mounting capability on to a printed circuit board, a spring-loaded shaft to reduce vibrational noise, various shaft lengths and shapes for easy integration, and different haptic ranges. With strong PCB mounting and THT terminals, the SAM series switch has the durability necessary for automotive applications. Additionally, features such as signal, low profile, and improved haptics for power contacts can be provided on most customized versions.
