Inner-type

The Innertype of keypad is the basic silicone rubber dome switch embedded in an assembly frame with additional mechanical, acoustic or sealing functionality.

The silicone dome switch has a unique click response based on a combination of the design of the dome and the durable elasticity of Shin-Etsu silicone rubbers.

An extended dome construction library allows designers to develop applications freely. Mounting the Innertype in the application with proper actuator buttons will provide a dedicated switch solution.

Actuating the dome switch will push the electrical conductive contact element onto a contact pattern on the PCB or FPC and realise an electic switch operation. Various contact elements are available to meet specific electronic switching requirements.
