Improve Work Efficiency
Avoid Static Electricity
The Membrane Keypad Panel in the industrial industry acts as a bridge:
The control equipment in the industrial industry often needs to be controlled by the operator, and how to accurately operate this type of industrial equipment has become a lot of people's doubts. Around 1980, Membrane Keypad Panel was used in industrial equipment, which perfectly solved this problem. Since the Membrane Keypad Panel came out, the use of industrial equipment has not been smooth, but because the Membrane Keypad Panel can be printed with indication marks, it is barely used. But with the development of materials science and the application of materials. The advantages of Membrane Keypad Panel are becoming more and more obvious, so Membrane Keypad Panel can not only reduce the operating errors of the staff, but more importantly, it can improve the work efficiency of the operators. Some advantages of Membrane Keypad Panel are particularly prominent in the industrial industry:
*Improve work efficiency: because Membrane Keypad Panel can play the role of warning and prompting through printing, and accurately describe the functions of various keys. You can even use blind spot embossing to identify important keys and frequently used keys. During the operation, the operation time can be reduced and the work efficiency can be improved. For industry, efficiency is benefit.
*Can avoid the damage of static electricity: A problem often encountered in Membrane Keypad Panel is that static electricity causes the lack of key functions. Industrial accidents are sometimes caused by operational errors or loss of key functions. To ensure that Membrane Keypad Panel is not damaged by static electricity has also become a research direction of Membrane Keypad Panel factory. The suggestions given by Niceone-Keypad are as follows: 1. Use of shielding layers such as ESD/RFI. 2. The waterproof frame type is also helpful to avoid static electricity. 3. Choose FPC or PCB as the circuit to more effectively avoid the silver migration problem in the high-pressure and high-humidity environment.
*Backlight options: Membrane Keypad Panel can take the form of LGF, fiber optical or EL cold light film to enable operators to still use Membrane Keypad Panel in low-light environments. This is also the reason why Membrane Keypad Panel can improve the efficiency of operators one.
The design diversity of Membrane Keypad Panel is far more than this. A reasonable design can make your industrial equipment more advantageous in the market. The non-convex design of Capacity Membrane Switches and the design style similar to the touch screen also make Membrane Keypad Panel popular in the industrial equipment market. Contact Niceone-Keypad, immediately customize the Membrane Keypad Panel that suits you best.
The performance of Membrane Keypad Panel in military enterprises is very impressive:
Modern products must have a very special and less contact with ordinary people, that is, military products. However, this type of product has very strict requirements for every detail of the accessories. And Niceone-Keypad, as the manufacturer of Membrane Keypad Panel, we are more aware that as a product's human-computer interaction system, Membrane Keypad Panel cannot make any mistakes. At the same time, military products need a Membrane Keypad Panel that is highly reliable and can withstand various risks. How to do it?
*Circuit material selection: Circuit chooses Flex copper or printing circuit board. This kind of circuit is more stable than the conventional silver oil PET circuit after welding with electronic components, and even high-frequency vibration will not cause any electronic components to peel off.

*Excellent Tactile Feedback: The Tactile Feedback of Membrane Keypad Panel is also very important in the military industry. Such as military communications equipment, diagnostic equipment, scanners, etc. The main factors affecting the quality of Tactile Feedback are as follows: 1. Structure 2. Material 3. Metal Dome 4. Mold.
*Durability: Military products are often deployed in the harshest and most variable environments. It is possible that the same product has to tolerate low temperature and high temperature as well. It is even possible that the product has to meet two types of requirements. What's more, it needs to be used in an environment with extremely strong ultraviolet rays. How to ensure that Membrane Keypad Panel can be used even if it encounters this kind of environment-choose the right material, Membrane Keypad Panel can meet such requirements.
*Backlight selection: In a low-light environment, how can we accurately know the layout of the buttons without affecting the operation? If the Membrane Keypad Panel is equipped with a backlight function, it can be done without affecting the use of the product. The main principle is to light up the area that needs to be illuminated. There are four main design methods. For details, please click Backlight selection.
*Additional design: 1. ESD/RFI 2. Resin Dome 3. Waterproof frame 4. Membrane Keypad Panel of OCA type design. 5. Can be combined with Touch screen.
- *Excellent Tactile Feedback: The Tactile Feedback of Membrane Keypad Panel is also very important in the military industry. Such as military communications equipment, diagnostic equipment, scanners, etc. The main factors affecting the quality of Tactile Feedback are as follows: 1. Structure 2. Material 3. Metal Dome 4. Mold.
- A. The surface glue part needs to use a thickness between 0.175mm-0.225. Increase the stroke of the key to increase the feel.
- B. Membrane Keypad Panel with Metal Dome. The Metal Dome of 8-10-12.2mm 280-320-350-380-450G feels better.
- C. Membrane Keypad Panel comes with embossing. The main purpose is to increase the key stroke so as to enhance the feel.
- D. Membrane Keypad Panel on the online line without Metal Dome can embossing on the line to enhance the feel.
- E. Add Tactile Feedback Dot. Tactile Feedback Dot options include: Silicone Rubber Dot, Tactile Feedback Dot. Foam Tactile Feedback Dot.
- F. Design of vent holes: small details of vent holes need to be designed to ensure the feel of the keys. At the same time, try to make all keys feel the same. Vent holes also help improve Tactile Feedback
- 1. The thickness of the panel material is generally 0.125-0.2mm Tactile Feedback is better. If you choose a thicker material, and Membrane Keypad Panel does not have Embossing.
- 2. Polyester has better bendability than Polycarbonate, and has a longer life span and also has better resilience.
- *The choice of Metal Dome: Need to combine the products to choose the most suitable Metal Dome. Common choices are: 8-10-12.2mm Metal Dome with a load of 280-320-350-380-450G feels better.
- *Mold: Embossing formed by hardware stainless steel mold has a better feel than conventional CNC etching molds.
- *Durability: Military products are often deployed in the harshest and most variable environments. It is possible that the same product has to tolerate low temperature and high temperature as well. It is even possible that the product has to meet two types of requirements. What's more, it needs to be used in an environment with extremely strong ultraviolet rays. How to ensure that Membrane Keypad Panel can be used even if it encounters this kind of environment-choose the right material, Membrane Keypad Panel can meet such requirements.
- Low temperature problem: It will make Adhesive very brittle and cause the adhesive tape to delaminate, and the Membrane Keypad Panel will lose its function as a whole. Solution: Use low temperature resistant materials such as Nitto or 3M Adhesive.
- High temperature problems: Membrane Keypad Panel must choose flame retardant materials for high temperature problems, otherwise it will cause significant economic losses.
- Ultraviolet ray problem: It causes the Overlay of Membrane Keypad Panel to turn yellow and become brittle, thereby losing elasticity, and the circuit function is completely lost.
- Button life: Membrane Keypad Panel's button life can usually reach 1,000,000 times, but if you want to reach 5,000,000 times. 1. Shrapnel needs to choose Nicomatic or Snaptron shrapnel. 2. Embossing of the keys requires the use of hardware molds and the height is controlled between 0.3-0.5mm. 3. Select Polyester material as Overlay.
