C&K Product Flash






SDS Series

Side Actuated Detect Switches

Undetectable detection switch for anti-tamper and intrusion systems

A lot of devices require anti-tampering or security measures. It is necessary for utility meters and other products to ensure that the meter is not intentionally tampered with making its warranty void.

C&K’s SDS series is a detect switch developed for anti-tampering systems. It provides 2 mm of over-travel, allowing design flexibility. It features NO and NC circuitry and can be actuated from either a top or side perspective. With a low profile package that sits just 2 mm above your board, it is practically unnoticeable. It’s an “undetectable detection device”. C&K Switch Product Flash

The SDS is a high performance, high reliability switch, with ratings of up to 100k cycles. Customized versions with longer actuators and different plating of the contacts are available.



  • Low profile package sits just 2 mm off PCB
  • 2 mm over-travel ideal for detector applications
  • Low actuation force (75 grams max.)

Typical Applications include:

  • Consumer electronics
  • Medical devices
  • ATCA and Micro TCA devices
  • Utility metering

Powered by Artesyn: Radiotherapy


One of the industry’s most innovative developers of medical systems was developing an entirely new device for cancer treatment.

To create this faster, more efficient system and offer it at a similar price to existing radiotherapy machines, the company focused relentlessly on the performance and cost-effectiveness of every component part, including power supplies.

With digital control and medical safety approvals, Artesyn’s LCM series met the performance criteria but what about cost?

The LCM series was designed from the ground up to be an economical power conversion solution and Artesyn has invested in dedicated manufacturing to ensure it remains one of the most cost-effective single-output, enclosed power supply families available.

The customer selected our 1500 watt LCM1500 unit as the power source for of its new CT scanner gantry (the circular rotating frame housing the x-ray tube and detector) and has launched its cancer treatment system, which many in the industry expect will become the new standard for linear accelerators.
