Piezo switches are ruggedised and waterproof
Sealed to IP65, the ONPOW range of rugged and waterproof Piezo electric push button switches is now available from Diamond Electronics. They use pressure sensitive Piezo elements, which avoid the reliability issues of touch sensing alternatives. They are mounted in solid, sealed metal housings for use in a range of HMI applications including external access control and door entry systems, ticketing machines for transport tickets, public washrooms, medical equipment, fuel pump stations, industrial equipment, water control and mining control systems.
Manufactured from aluminium or stainless steel, the switches may be customised with bespoke graphics or text for a customer’s specific application. LED illumination in spot or ring format may be specified providing visual indication of action and enhancing the appearance of the end product.
Sealed to IP65 as standard, the range of piezo switches may be designed in to applications where aggressive chemicals are in use or where high humidity coupled with extremes of temperature may compromise the function or reliability of other switching technologies.
