Membrane Keypad

MEMBRANE KEYPAD MANUFACTURER

What are membrane keypads?

A membrane keypad is a keypad that contains a flexible tail with or without a connector according to the design & application. The keys of membrane keypads have multi layers of polymer also known as polyester sheets that are sandwiched together.

The custom membrane keyboard contains silk screened circuits. The top and bottom layers of membrane keypads have conductive silver ink.

This custom membrane keypad is not only low cost but also extremely reliable and lighter than a PCB.

The design and outlook of membrane keypads depend upon various factors. It’s appearance may vary from model to model.

All you need to know about membrane keypads and membrane switches-

What is a membrane switch?

A membrane switch is also known as a flat panel switch. It consists of a polycarbonate overlay or a printed polyester that is adhered to a printed circuit.

This membrane switch keypad is an interface between the machine and the user. This enables the operator to communicate effectively with the instrumentation, equipment, or machinery. 

Features of membrane switch are as follows-

  • Backlighting
  • Shielding
  • Embossing keys
  • Sealing
  • Tactile free
  • Has graphic overlay capabilities
  • Switches are metal dome
  • Contains printed silver Circuit

Now that we have discussed what a membrane keypad and membrane switch are, let’s discuss the advantages of using them.

Advantages of membrane keypads are as follows –

The main advantage of using keypad membranes is that they are highly compact (smaller in size) and easy to carry, unlike mechanical keyboards.

Since they are slim in size, they can be used in various ways. They have a longer lifespan however they could produce a little sound while typing.

So why should you opt for a membrane keypad?

Here’s why –

Other benefits of using membrane keypads are as follows-

  • Long lasting and durable
  • Does not gets oxidized unlike other keypads
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Good water resistance
  • Amazing flexibility
  • Slim and compact
  • Easy to carry
  • More effective and efficient
  • Good dust resistance
  • Usage of silver, insulation, and carbon inks
  • Greater reliability
  • Contact bounce is comparatively lesser
  • Good tactile feedback
  • Switch life is longer and better
  • Protects against moisture damage
  • Smoother application

Well, you read it right, there are just so many benefits of using a custom membrane keyboard.
