Silicone Rubber Keypad

Nowadays, Silicone rubber keypad is widely used in the electronic equipment industry, whether you are on the electronic equipment design needs, or configuration needs, you need to understand the basic knowledge of the conductive silicon keypad, so that the performance and characteristics of the keypad.

Its principle is to use the conductive properties of the conductive rubber to conduct electricity for the keypad; generally, when we use the keypad, we’ll press it directly, however, while pressing it, the conductive rubber will contact with the contacts of the circuit board below, and if it is released, it will automatically pop out, this process is the application of conductive silicone keypad.

TOP 5 Benefits of Silicone Rubber Keypad

  • Cost-effective

Compared to other types of switches, they are cost-effective. It is made of high elasticity, nontoxic silicone rubber compounds that can be massively produced by compression or injection modeling.

  • Temperature enduring

Ideal for applications in industrial equipment that is exposed to temperature extremes. It’s capable of enduring temperatures ranging from -55℃to 300℃.

  • Waterproof & Dustproof

Waterproof and dustproof and will prevent moisture or dust from making their way into an electron. They are often used in outdoor applications where traditional keypads aren’t possible.

  • Ease-shaped

It allows designers to add shape, color, and 3D form to any keypad design. It provides great convenience for integrating with printed circuit boards (PCB) in any form.

  • Comfortable to use

It is very comfortable for all the keys since all of the keys will be as soft and as smooth as they can be. People will actually enjoy using their keypads when they’re made using silicone rubber. And the sensitivity and the tactile feedback can be adjusted to satisfy the operator’s need.
