How it Works
The operation of a membrane switch is based on electrical contacts between thin films.
When a user presses a switch button, the touch layer flexes, creating electrical contact between the conductive films, thereby triggering the required action.
Upon releasing the button, the electrical connection is severed, and the switch returns to its original state.
Niceone-tech Types of Membrane Switches
In addition to dust and water resistance, it’s essential to consider specifications like heat tolerance and size hen selecting a membrane switch. Niceone-tech stands out fwor its craftsmanship and performance, offering a range of switch types:
- Single Touch
- Silicone Rubber Keypad
Single Touch Membrane Switch
Known for simplicity, single touch membrane switches require a light press to activate and are favored for straightforward on/off functions.
Household appliances, electronics, consumer devices
Waterproof membrane switch
Due to the selection of reasonable design, special structural layers and raw materials with good waterproof performance, the waterproof effect of the product can reach IP67 or even IP68.
Control panels, keyboards, industrial equipment
Tactile Membrane switch
These switches are designed to provide tactile feedback to the user when pressed, creating a physical sensation or "click" that confirms the actuation of a button or switch.
Medical devices, industrial controls, automotive interiors.
Backlight Membrane switch
A backlight membrane switch is equipped with an additional layer of lighting, usually located behind the graphic overlay. This layer can be made of LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) or EL.
Electronics, automotive, medical devices, aerospace and defense, industrial control, communication systems, IoT
PCB Membrane switch
PCB, or Printed Circuit Board, membrane switches are a type of user interface technology that consists of several layers of materials. These layers include a printed circuit, a graphic overlay, a spacer, and an adhesive layer.
Electronics, automotive, medical devices, aerospace and defense, industrial control panels, retail and point of sale (POS) systems, home automation and security, education and training, environmental control systems
Silicone Rubber Keypad
Silicone rubber keypads, also known as elastomeric keypads, are user interface components made from silicone rubber. They consist of individual buttons or keys that can be pressed to make electrical contact with a circuit board underneath.
Medtech, consumer, telecommunications, defense, industrial
Advancing Manufacturing Processes
A qualified and outstanding membrane switch relies on meticulous manufacturing processes. At Niceone-tech, we excel in four key steps that set us apart from the competition.
These steps are the reason why we can maintain a significant edge over other manufacturers.
This is a precision printing technique used to reproduce intricate patterns and markings. By selecting the appropriate printing plate and grid, ensure accuracy, maintaining consistent product aesthetics and quality.
Circuit design serves as the cornerstone of membrane switch manufacturing. We meticulously craft circuit layouts to ensure each connection is reliable, enhancing product performance and durability.
Backlight technology is employed to enhance visibility in low-light conditions. We implement advanced backlighting designs to ensure clear visibility of membrane switches in various environments, elevating user experience.
