CLICKPAD - THE SHORT STROKE SOLUTION   Exclusively by Abatek


ClickPad is a silicone keypad with a short or long stroke and clear snap.


It has a unique feel generated through a combination of technologies.
Abatek not only provides a product. Metal domes are directly integrated into the keypad for optimal haptic, high life cycle and repetitive feel.
This fully automated assembly made out of metal domes and silicone parts ensures the functions of important parameters like force/way and electrical contact.

UNIQUE! In addition to the shape and tactile feel the acoustic can be adjusted.

Additional functions like redundancy, capacity, double stroke, sealing function and many more can be added.

All this results in best quality and in a stable system sold over 200 million times in the global market.

SLIDER – REPLACES CAPACITIVE AND FORCE-RESISTANCE SOLUTIONS


"The Slider" is a slider or rotation solution invented by Abatek.


It does not require any capacitive or FSR-sensor thus avoids all electromagnetic interference and is glove compatible. Optionally added points or sections provide a tactile feedback. The threshold force can be adjusted.

This robust and very cost-efficient layered solution gives any closed surface structure a wide range of design freedom regarding color, printing, lighting and function.

CONNECTOR / ZEBRA


Silicone Connector / Zebra Strip is the ideal approach for electrical connectivity between two parallel plane surfaces without soldering or gluing.


It is very cost-efficient and simply connect by compression.
It also absorbs vibrations.
This enables easy and robust assembly of your LCD or capacitive foil without ZIF Connector.
In addition it is suitable for bridging air gaps in a capacitive application.

The low resistance Connector / Zebra from Abatek can substitute expensive silver, nickel or gold connectors.

MEMBRANE SWITCHES


A cost-efficient well proven switching technology with high surface resistance.


The surface is closed and usually back-printed with the option of backlighting and openings.

In addition the buttons can be embossed and can have tactile feedback, LED's, stiffeners and connector tails.

In addition an elastomer for 3D look and feel can be applied.

Thanks to the super adhesive which is water resistant it is perfect for medical and outdoor applications.

SOFTPLAST – THE BEST OUT OF TWO WORLDS


A flexible and highly customizable surface that is HARDER than silicone keys but SOFTER than plastic - hence Softplast®.


A cost-efficient combination between silicone & plastic with a superb appearance.

Softplast is extremely flexible in terms of surface structure, design and lighting.
This technology allows a closed surface keypad with integrated plastics caps for short stroke applications.
Softplast is primarily used in consumer electronics.
It will bring your HMI to a new level without adding significant cost.
