SQ-Series Tactile Domes
The SQ-Series is Snaptron’s newest line of tactile domes (snap domes). These innovative, robust tactile dome contacts feature a new shape that allows them to be durable and reliable, while maintaining an exceptional tactile feel. SQ-Series tactile domes are square in shape and have four “ball-shaped” feet. They are designed to be robust and are specified to 10 million cycles – the highest life rating in the industry. SQ-Series domes are offered in a wide variety of sizes, and custom SQ domes can be made with higher trip forces not obtainable in traditional snap dome designs.
The SQ04200N, the smallest of the SQ-Series, measures 4mm in diameter (across), and 3.3mm on the sides. It is one of the smallest tactile domes available on the market today. Although small, it offers 200 grams of trip force, which is unprecedented for a dome of its size. This is particularly beneficial for applications where printed circuit board (PCB) space is minimal.
SQ domes can be purchased in bulk (loose in jars) or as part of a custom Peel-N-Place™ Array (mounted on adhesive tape). SQ domes can be mounted to a wide variety of switching surfaces, including single- or double-sided printed circuit boards, flex circuits, and membrane switch panels. SQ domes come standard with nickel plating, with gold plating optional. All SQ-Series domes are manufactured in the USA at Snaptron’s manufacturing facility in Windsor, Colorado. SQ domes adhere to Snaptron’s strict tolerances and consistent characteristics.
