TC-5 is a 5-position keypad switch module
As seen on sites such as Yahoo Finance and Global Purchasing, OTTO’s new TC-5 is the first in a series of keypad modules, with 1, 2, 3 and 4 button versions coming soon. These keypad modules are suitable for use in harsh environments and demanding applications. The TC-5 is slightly over an inch in diameter and can be front or rear mounted in a grip or front panel.

The advantage of the TC-5 is that it incorporates keypad functionality within a very small footprint. Standard or custom legends are available and can be LED backlit with a variety of colors.

Standard termination options include flying leads, ribbon cable (with or without AMP connector) or FCC.

Tested to one million cycles, the TC-5 has an operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C and it is sealed to IP68S.
Applications include:

  • construction
  • agriculture
  • industrial
  • material handling
  • medical

The TC-5 can be used in panel or grip applications and is especially useful in cursor control or data entry applications.
