As its name indicates, a Membrane Switch is a classification of a lever. However, they are commonly screen printed through a Conductive Ink into the circuit board. Since it is carved out of a Conductive Paint, the materials are primarily comprised of silver, carbon, or graphite. In a nutshell, the purpose of a Membrane Switch is to trigger ON and OFF a particular program by being an operator or interface between the user and the machinery, equipment, or device.
Since Membrane Switch is an essential component in a particular circuitry, there are countless advantages it can offer to one’s application.
Welcome to our FAQ section, where we’ve compiled answers to many commonly asked questions. If you have any additional queries, please leave us a message.
Simply put, the layers of a Membrane Switch are linked through a pressure-sensitive adhesive; the layers can range from four (4) to nine (9). As for the construction, it has printed circuitry at the bottom of the outer surface regarded as a graphic overlay.
In a nutshell, the working principle of a Membrane Switch is straightforward; by toggling the button, it can either activate or deactivate the circuit. In some cases, putting pressure on the switch activates it. On the contrary, if that pressure is released, it can deactivate it.
In essence, Membrane Switches are popular in every industry, including aerospace and aviation, medical, military and defense, industrial, and automotive applications. In line with this, they are frequently found in control panels.
We do not require that much in constructing a Membrane Switch; however, it is essential to know its purpose of it before contacting us. Overall, we mainly require the desired dimension of corners and tails, keypad centers, size and placements of cutouts and windows, color specifications, placements of tail exit point and graphic entities, LED positioning, electronic schematic, and positioning and size of the tail.
In MV Flex Circuit, we have varying ways of packing a product. If the board that contains a Membrane Switch is flimsy, we utilize a PE bag. Otherwise, if the board is not wobbly, we employ a vacuum package.
