Rubber Keypads

Multiple Construction Options

In some applications it is preferred to have a rubber keypad for the user interface rather than a membrane switch graphic. Xymox offers multiple construction options when a rubber keypad is required.

Non-Conductive, Non-Tactile Elastomer Over Sealed Tactile Membrane Keypad

This construction provides tactile feedback from metal or polyester domes. All of the switching is part of the sealed membrane switch with circuitry exiting via a circuit tail. Having tactile in the membrane switch allows for a thinner construction when compared to a tactile elastomer.

Many factors contribute to the life expectancy of a rubber keypad, from the material used to the tactile feedback. The material can also affect printing options.
