The Rise of Piezo Switches: What You Should Know

The Rise of Piezo Switches: What You Should Know

When researching the different types of switches, you may come across piezo. Not all switches rely on moving parts. In addition to mechanical switches, there are piezo switches. Piezo switches are essentially touch switches that feature a piezoelectric panel. The...

Panel vs Membrane Overlay: What’s the Difference?

Switches typically require a top layer. Known as an overlay, it often contains conductive contacts on the underside. Pressing a button on a switch will force these conductive contacts to touch a lower set of conductive contacts, thus completing the circuit. While you...
3 Common Types of Panels for Membrane Switches

3 Common Types of Panels for Membrane Switches

Membrane switches have become increasingly popular in recent years. Like all switches, they are designed to control one or more circuits. Membrane switches are distinguished from other types of switches, however, by their use of a flexible substrate. Mechanical...
