At present, the conventional strength of silicone tact switches is generally 250gf±50gf, but compared with some high-end products, the popping sound when pressed makes the feel feedback too strong. Next, the editor will introduce to you the strength of the silicone tact switch?
The use of silicone tact switches also involves a lot of knowledge points. For example, what everyone needs to know is, for example, the precision machinery of electronic scales. Excessive pressure can affect some functions of the product. Generally speaking, 160gf is a relatively moderate force that does not make too much noise when pressing, which ensures a tactile feedback. However, some special products require a force of 400gf, of course, when you use it, you can also see that some products need soft force when pressing. Not too loud. It can be set to 100gf, even some products require silent touch switch, no sound when pressed, sponge touch switch, silicone touch switch, it depends on the industry the guest uses. There are many reasons why a touch switch feels bad. The structure of the silicone tact switch and the five-way switch itself is unreasonable, the shrapnel material and electroplating process do not meet the standards, the shrapnel is deformed, and the shrapnel error range is large. Then you know how to ensure its feel at this time, develop and produce a reasonable structure, use stainless steel shrapnel, and control the shrapnel error and shrapnel defect rate. The quality of the feel will directly depend on the sales volume and word of mouth of the product.
So if you want to use it, what you need to know is that a good brand and product have high requirements on the handle of the switch. The quality of the handle also has a great influence on the service life of the silicone tact switch itself. The service life of domestic grenades is between 3-5w times; the service life of Taiwanese grenades is between 5-8w times; the service life of imported shrapnel used by Yingxin Electronics is between 10-100w times. In addition, it is also necessary to understand that as long as a good shrapnel directly affects the handle, service life and quality of the switch. Due to its small size, long life, and light touch, it can be widely used in many fields such as household appliances. With the continuous improvement of people's living standards, the upgrading speed of these home appliances is getting faster and faster, and the number will be more and more, so this is also a huge potential direction for us to be optimistic about its development prospects. So, how much force does it take for silicone to tact a switch and feel comfortable? This is also a question that everyone is concerned about. In fact, this itself is a subjective question. The requirements and usage environments of each industry are different, so the feel and strength are also different.
