More FAQ's

How does a keypad or touchscreen connect?
There are many different ways that keypads and touchscreens connect to a PCB (Printed Circuit Board). Often it is with a “tail” with circuit traces. This tail will have a connector or simply fit into a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector. Sometimes keypads are mounted directly on a PCB or have a connector mounted directly on the back of the keypad with no tail.

How long will a keypad last?
Depending on the components used, the type of construction and the end use environment, keypads can last for ten or twenty years. The same is true for touchscreens.
