We made our Silicone Rubber Keypad Design Tool to assist designers in understanding how the Tactile response and Stroke (travel) of a key could affect the user experience of a product. It also demonstrates how different shore hardness of rubber can affect the action of a key.
One of the main benefits from choosing to incorporate a Silicone Rubber or CombiKey Keypad is the ability to tune the feel of the key to suit the product you are developing. By changing the Web Structure and/or the Shore hardness of the material we can help you produce a feel that your customers will be comfortable with whatever the application.
Diamond HMI have also produced their Silicone Rubber Keypad Design Guide which gives information on all the parameters that should be considered when designing a rubber keypad. DOWNLOAD HERE
