What is the difference between a membrane switch and a traditional switch?

1. Long service life: The working life of the membrane switch is dozens of times that of ordinary mechanical switches. The life of the membrane switch can reach more than 10,000 times, while the life of the traditional switch ranges from 100,000 to 200,000 times at most;

2. Small size and light weight: the total thickness of the membrane switch is generally between 1.0 and 1.5mm, which is only equivalent to The thickness of an ordinary aluminum panel 3. Good sealing; because the membrane switch is a sealed structure of the whole machine, it has the ability to prevent fire, dust, explosion, and harmful gas erosion. It can adapt to work in extremely harsh environmental conditions , such as used in electrostatic copiers, it can prevent the short circuit caused by charged toner intrusion into the switch and make it fail; while the traditional membrane switch is easy to operate and fail in a humid environment;

4. Good decoration: the membrane switch The appearance is a matte color tone with diffuse emission, and the surface is soft, which is beneficial to the protection of the vision and is more conducive to the monitoring of the instrument; while the traditional switch is relatively simple. The traditional switch needs to go through continuous revision of drawings and several complicated processes and mold opening to complete.

What is a membrane switch?

A membrane switch is a versatile component that combines switch buttons, panel function text, marks, trademarks, transparent windows, and display windows. It features a multi-layer overall sealing structure, providing various benefits such as friction resistance, waterproofing, dustproofing, protection against harmful gases, and a long and stable service life.

The applications of membrane switches are extensive, finding widespread use in intelligent electronic measuring instruments, medical instruments, computer control, CNC machine tools, electronic weighing instruments, post and telecommunications equipment, copiers, refrigerators, microwave ovens, electric fans, washing machines, electronic game machines, and other industrial and household electrical products.
