Membrane switches, also known as light-touch keypads, use a flat multi-layer combination to form an integral sealed structure, which is a type of contact switch made by printing a contact circuit on a flexible polycarbonate or mylar film with a conductive paste. With the development of technology, membrane switches are being used more and more, and there are more and more types of membrane switches on the market. This article will provide a brief analysis of membrane switches, basic information about the service life of membrane switches will be highlighted in this article.

Lifespan of Membrane Switches


Membrane switches are designed to be arranged and combined into membrane keypads with a high density of settings, and they are a sealed sheet-type structure made up of multiple layers of membrane combinations, with all the connection lines and lead wires between the switches being screen printed in one go. According to statistics, the life span of membrane switches can generally reach more than one million times. The reason for this long life span is that the action of the switch is only achieved by the vertical flicking of the elastic membrane.


Applications of Membrane Switches


Membrane switches are a new type of electronic component that integrates light, machine and electricity by sealing together key switches, panels, markers, symbol displays and liners, which is a fundamental change in the appearance structure of electronic products. Therefore, it is widely used in the packaging industry, electronic appliances, medical and health care, construction, automotive and other fields.
