Our tactile metal domes are momentary switch contacts that, when used in conjunction with a printed circuit board, flex circuit, or membrane, become normally-open tactile switches. Tactile metal domes are placed on printed circuit boards through pressure-sensitive adhesive tape or captured in a pocket design.
In their relaxed state, the tactile metal domes rest on the outer rim of the primary pathway. When pushed, the domes collapse and make contact with the secondary path, thereby closing the circuit. Many different shapes and actuation forces are available to fit your specific application. You can use them for electrical contact, tactile-element only, or both electrical and tactile. Contact us today to purchase our tactile metal domes. Note: Plating may impact the life-cycle rating of the dome.
