Comparing resistive and capacitive touch switch technologies

Resistive and capacitive touch switches operate by registering changes in electrical current. This differentiates them from traditional membrane switches, which rely on a touch button to operate. Resistive and capacitive touch switches use a similar mode of operation to their touch screen counterparts.

Resistive touch switch

Resistive touch switches rely on lowering the resistance between two conductive metal plates that are laid out with a small, but electrically important, space in between. They require some pressure to be activated.

Capacitive touch switch

Capacitive touch switches detect a change in capacitance caused by a conductive item like a finger regardless of the pressure applied.

Switches and screens share a lot of similarities when it comes to integrating capacitive or resistive touch technology. Click here for greater details on these technologies.
