Langir piezo touch switches are based on a solid-state output allowing for a very long life expectancy (more than 50 millions cycles), ideal for demanding applications where reliability is most important. The flat actuation surface is completely closed, preventing the intrusion of liquids or other contaminants, perfect for surface cleaning required in the medical and food-processing industries. High performance sealing (IP68 and IP69K) is achieved due to the one-piece construction of the switch. No external power supply is required. The screw-machined metal housing construction and Langir’s vertical integration allow for the manufacture of a variety of shapes.

1. What is a piezo touch switch?
Yes, piezo switches are more reliable than mechanical switches due to their solid-state design and absence of moving parts. They can withstand millions of actuations without degradation.
2. How does a piezo touch switch work?
Piezo switches consist of a piezoelectric material, typically a crystal or ceramic, sandwiched between two conductive layers. When pressure is applied to the switch’s surface, the piezoelectric material generates an electric charge, which is detected by the conductive layers. This charge is then processed by the device’s circuitry to trigger specific functions.
3. Are piezo switches more reliable than mechanical switches?
A piezo touch switch is an electronic component that allows users to control devices through touch-sensitive inputs. Unlike traditional mechanical switches that rely on physical contact, piezo touch switches utilize the piezoelectric effect to convert mechanical stress into electrical signals, enabling touch-based operation.
4. Can piezo touch switches be used in outdoor environments?
Yes, piezo switches are suitable for outdoor environments. They are resistant to water, dust, and other contaminants, making them reliable even in harsh conditions.
5. Are piezo touch switches energy-efficient?
Yes, piezo switches consume minimal power, contributing to energy efficiency in electronic devices.
6. Can piezo touch switches be customized to match specific product designs?
Yes, piezo touch switches can be designed in various shapes, sizes, and colors, allowing for customization to match specific product designs or branding requirements.
7. Do piezo touch switches produce any sound when operated?
No, piezo touch switches operate silently, making them ideal for noise-sensitive environments.
