A large proportion of people still do not understand what a membrane switch is. In fact, membrane switch is a new type of electronic device researched and developed in the late 70s and early 80s, it is a product that responds to the development needs of electronic machine products to miniaturization, digitalization, intelligence and multi-functionalization. This article will focus on the impact and significance of membrane switches on modern life by introducing the advantages of membrane switches.

What are the inherent advantages of membrane materials?


In the production of membrane switches, all membrane materials are non-toxic and non-hazardous, have a long service life and do not cause any environmental impact. In addition, membrane switches are very safe to use because the materials used in their production are synthetic materials, most of which have excellent flame retardancy and do not melt at high temperatures or produce toxic gases, which ensures that they meet fire protection requirements very well.


The significance of membrane switches to modern life


Thanks to the special manufacturing process, membrane switches have good resistance to corrosion and chemicals. For people's lives, membrane switches offer a lot of conveniences. Traditional mechanical switches, for example, need to be welded and even fitted with a fixing bracket when they are installed. Membrane switches, on the other hand, are mounted in a stick-on style and can be firmly attached by simply removing the adhesive backing paper. In particular, it is clear that membrane switches are very easy to use. In addition, it is very adaptable and it can be adapted to work in extremely harsh environmental conditions, such as for electrostatic copiers, where it can prevent short circuits caused by the intrusion of charged toner into the switch, which can cause it to malfunction. This shows that membrane switches are not only aesthetically pleasing but also practical for modern life.


What are the main categories of membrane switches?


Flexible membrane

Flexible membrane switches are the typical form of membrane switches. The circuit layer of flexible membrane switches are all made of PET with good electrical properties as a carrier for the switch circuit graphics, this layer is also divided into hand shrapnel, upper and lower circuits. Due to the influence of the nature of the polyester film, making the membrane switch has good insulation, heat resistance, folding resistance and high resilience.


Rigid membrane


A rigid membrane switch is one in which the graphics and wiring of the switch are produced on a commonly printed circuit laminate. Rigid membrane switches are characterised by easy access to materials, stable processes, low resistance values and the ability to solder certain components of the circuit directly on their backs.


The membrane material can withstand a life of more than one million cycles without deformation, which makes membrane switches have many advantages. Membrane switches are a product of social and technological development. When using membrane switches, we need to pay attention to a number of things to avoid its service life being affected. Through the above introduction, do you have a better understanding of membrane switches?
