Thin, durable and flexible, you can use our foil-based switches in automotive (instrument panel and steering wheel) and consumer devices that require an on/off signal.
The switch contact is closed when the force applied reaches a specified threshold, which can be adapted to meet application requirements. Depending on the type of contact material used, the switch can be nearly digital (low impedance) or force-dependant (where the contact resistance is a function of the force applied).
Switches can either be configured as single switches, or as switch arrays or matrices.
By combining the functionalities of IEE’s pressure sensor with capacitive switches in one sensor, you have smart input device that uses capacitive sensing for pre-selection and pressure activation for confirmation.
