Questions: What is the “normal” travel for a buttom on a silicone keypad?
Answer: If the silicone’s button structure (or webbing) is providing the actuation force then typically the travel should be about 0.04″ to 0.05″. If there will be metal dome under the button that provides the actuation force then the travel should be much less usually around 0.01″.
Questions: What hardness(or shore) should I use for my custom keypad?
Answer: Once again the answer is different depanding on how the actuation force is provided. If there is no metal dome under the button we typically recommend 50-55 shore A(think Inner Tube or Door Seal). If there is a metal dome under the button then we would recommend 60 shore A(think Windshield Wiper Blade). Our Sapmle keypad has: 30 Shore A, 40 Shore A, 50 Shore A, 60 Shore A and 70 Shore A.
