Silicone electrical buttons
are an easy-to-use and reliable switching solution for a number of applications. These switches feature a soft webbing made of silicone rubber around a center switch that deforms when you press the button.
These keypads also support backlighting, which allows you to achieve better input accuracy and reduce the risk of erroneous commands. These buttons can be laser etched to add a high level of aesthetics and visibility.
In addition to providing a natural design that's comfortable and easy to use, silicone rubber keypads are durable and resistant to moisture and other liquids. This makes them perfect for industrial control panels, hospitals and other industries where harsh conditions are common.
They're also extremely lightweight and flexible, allowing you to easily insert them into electronic devices. This also means that they're a great choice for medical gadgets, where it's essential to keep things as small and unobtrusive as possible.
A common feature of many keypads, tactile feedback is the physical sensation that occurs when you press a button and release your finger. This is what lets you know that your command was registered successfully.
A non-momentary contact keypad is one that requires two button presses to open and close the circuit. These are found in radios, television sets and audio devices, among others.
