APEM’s piezoelectric technologies incorporate a highly reliable pressure sensitive keypad in a visually appealing package. Discover the durability and aesthetic appeal of piezo keyboards, designed for heavy usage and sterile environments.
HOW THIS TECHNOLOGY WORKS?
This technology uses a thin membrane behind the keycap that moves slightly when pressed. The need for micromovement in the membrane to activate the switch ensures that changes in outside environment won’t create inadvertent activation.

Resistance to ingress
PIEZOELECTRIC KEYPADS ARE EXCELLENT WHEN:
- Frequent cleaning is necessary due to its flat sealed surface
- Frequent use is necessary due to its lifetime of more than 50 million activations
- Reduced power consumption is important. As it is a mechanical switch, it consumes no power when idle.
