A membrane switch is a printed electronic circuit that uses pressure to open and close a circuit. The membrane switch circuitry is most often screen printed using conductive inks, which are typically made of silver, carbon, and/or graphite.Membrane switches are part of a range of devices considered to human machine interfaces along with display-based touch screens, and mechanical switches such as push-button, toggle, rocker, and slide switches. The ultimate purpose of a membrane switch is to serve as the interface between human and machine, enabling an operator to communicate with a piece of equipment, instrument, or machinery.

Membrane Switch Features

ALLPCB offers membrane switches that perform, with long life cycles and high quality. Our membrane switches come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, but share these common features:

● Easy to use interface

● Long life at low cost

● Reliable, attractive, customized user interface

● Custom switch features – embedded LED

● Short lead times – about 7-10 working days after approval

Types of Membrane Switch from ALLPCB

  • Metal Dome Membrane Switch
  • Sliver Pasted Membrane Switch
  • Non-tactile Membrane Switch
  • PCB-based Membrane Switch

Graphic overlays are a critical component membrane switches, providing both protection and a surface for graphic printing to create a functional and user-friendly interface. Well-designed graphic overlays make a powerful first impression of the equipment. The design of the membrane switch overlay will set your equipment apart from the competition by providing an unsurpassed user experience.

Graphic Overlay Features

Graphic overlays in ALLPCB are manufactured in custom shapes, sizes and materials, but share common features:

● Durability

● Screen Printing

● Laser cut for prototype/ Die cut for mass production

● Short lead times – approximately 5-7 days for prototype after artwork approval

Types of Graphic Overlays from ALLPCB

ALLPCB offers a variety of graphic overlays, including:

● Custom graphic overlays

● Membrane switch graphic overlays

● Front panel graphic overlays

Polycarbonate, Polyester

Polyester (PET)

PET is much thinner but is a more reliable material that shows no sign of wear after 1,000,000 actuations. It also has superior resistance to chemicals and harsh environments. Polyester is more expensive than polycarbonate.

Polycarbonate (PC)

PC is easy to die cut, print and texture. But it may show signs of wear after 100,000 actuations. It has lower resistance to chemicals. Polycarbonate is cheaper than polyester. Most people think polycarbonate looks better than polyester.

  • Metal Dome Membrane Switch

    Metal dome membrane switch will be embossed to create space for metal dome. It is tactile because of the embossing and metal dome. But it tends to be more easily broken than sliver pasted membrane switches.

    Metal Dome Membrane Switch

  • Sliver Pasted Membrane Switch

    The circuit layer of silver pasted membrane switch is formed by sliver ink and the conductive media is also made of sliver. And those features make sliver pasted membrane switch more reliable than metal dome one.

    Metal Dome Membrane Switch

  • Non-tactile Membrane Switch

    Non-tactile membrane switch has a flat surface and is not embossed. It is the most reliable one in all kinds of membrane switch mentioned here.

    Metal Dome Membrane Switch

  • PCB-based Membrane Switch

    Rigid-PCB based membrane switch uses rigid-PCB instead of PET/PC based silver ink printed circuit. It is very suitable for those applications which have complicated circuit layout, or need many electric components mounted. It is with very high durability, reliability and long lifecycle.
