Everswitch piezo technology

Our piezo switches use the piezoelectric effect


Let’s start with the basics. Most Everswitch switches and keypads harness the piezoelectric effect. This is the property exhibited by certain crystals that generate voltage when subjected to pressure. Piezoelectric switches do not require an external source of power and have very different advantages over capacitive or membrane switches.

Unique versatile piezo module


Everswitch piezo switches are different in several important ways to other piezo switches. They feature our “VPM” (Versatile Piezo Module) – a single mechanical structure containing all necessary switch components.

Our Versatile Piezo Modules are press-fit into a solid metal housing, so that when pressed, the piezoelectric crystal material produces a corresponding change in voltage, which passes through a conductive connecting material to a circuit board mimicking a dry-contact switch closure. In addition, our unique modular approach eliminates the need for a solder connection to the delicate piezo ceramic and creates a robust 125 msec minimum switch closure, which is a significant improvement over market standards of just 20 msec.

Smart functionality, giving users greater control

Everswitch HMI systems and control solutions feature built-in software and proprietary algorithms that expand operability and user functionality. Our smart technologies enable an array of functions beyond a simple momentary switch closure – prolonged, toggle, continuous, programmable and slide switch functions. They also provide self-diagnostic reporting capability and switching of line voltages, putting more control in your hands and those of your users.
