Button PCB By Types
What is Button PCB?
A button PCB is a small, sealed mechanism that completes an electric circuit when you press on it. When it’s on, a small metal spring inside makes contact with two wires, allowing electricity to flow. When it’s off, the spring retracts, contact is interrupted, and the current won’t flow.
A button PCB is an electronic component that can be used to control lights and other electrical devices. It works by pressing down on a button or keypad which causes two metal contacts inside the component to make or break electrical connections between them. This allows current to flow through the circuit or stops it from flowing altogether depending on whether the button has been pressed or not.
What are Button PCBs Usage?
Button PCBs are a type of electronic component that is used to connect buttons, switches and other components to a circuit board. They can be used to create a wide range of devices such as remote controls for cars or household appliances.
These buttons have different functions, such as start and stop buttons, reset buttons, power button, etc. They are found in almost every electronic device such as computers, mobile phones, etc.
How Does Button PCB Work on Your Board?
A button PCB is an electronic device that allows you to make a button function as a switch. This means that when you press down on the button, the circuit will complete, and power will flow through it.
The way a button PCB works is by using two conductive areas: one is the actual button you press, and the other is connected to a small electronic chip that sends power through the circuit when it receives enough voltage.
This way, when you press down on your button PCB, it acts as a switch and completes the circuit between two points: one point being where you are pressing down on the board itself.
Benefit from PCBTok's Button PCB
PCBTok’s Button PCB is a PCB board that has the functioning button. It can be used for various electronic products, such as electronic devices, etc. This product is made of high-quality copper foil, which is easy to use, durable and reliable.
The button PCB is one of the most commonly used products in the industry, because it can be used to replace the traditional mechanical switch, which has many advantages such as low power consumption, strong anti-interference ability and small size.
Button PCB Fabrication
Momentary buttons are the simplest to understand. They are called momentary because they only work for a moment, then they turn off. They work by letting electricity flow through them for a brief time, and then stopping it.
Latching buttons work differently than momentary ones. They don’t just work for a moment: they stay on until you turn them off. A latching button works by using an electrical circuit that has two poles instead of one—one pole connected to the ground and another connected to power.
We’ll walk you through several ways to get your button PCB attached safely and securely to your circuit board. The first step in mounting your button PCB is to attach it to a circuit board. There are several ways to do this, but we’ll start with the most basic: soldering.
Using a soldering iron, you can attach the button PCB directly to the circuit board. First, use pliers to bend any legs that may get in the way of other components or wires. Then lay the PCB down on top of the circuit board and use your pliers to hold it in place while you solder it in place.

“PCBTok is a great supplier. I’ve never bought PCBs from them before, but I’ve ordered over 1,000 PCBs from them for my business. The salespeople were also excellent; they were promptly responsive, diligent and very detail-oriented. They are unquestionably an asset to have in the supply chain deals. Their customer service was something that I didn’t get from previous vendors. I am coming back for more business because they are just amazing.”Joseph James DeAngelo, Logistics & Shipping Supervisor from New York, USA
“A fantastic source for PCB fabrication is PCBTok. Since the people I work with often collaborate with them, I made the decision to give them a try. And because they were so helpful, I made the decision to place a second order with them and see if they might help me with my forthcoming assignment. The fact that they have experience in the PCB industry gives me confidence that they will be able to assist me.”Peter Sutcliffe, PCB Design Engineer from Yorkshire, England
“I’ve dealt with a lot of PCB fabrication firms, but none of them are as skilled and effective as PCBTok. They have dependably delivered quality work. I now just want PCBTok to handle it; any other PCB companies won’t do. They offer excellent rates, and their work is of the highest caliber. Anyone seeking for a PCB maker should consider them.”Klaus Gosmann, Computer & PCB Professional from Frankfurt, Germany
Pole and throw are two terms that describe the number of circuits that one button can control for one operation of the button.
The pole refers to how many circuits are controlled by each contact point in the button. For example, a single-pole button controls one circuit, while a double-pole button controls two circuits simultaneously.
The throw indicates how many contact points there are in a button. For example, a single-throw button has only one contact point, while a double-throw button has two contact points (one on each side).
Yes, we can illuminate your button PCBs. Illuminating the buttons on your PCB allows you to create a more colorful and vivid product that will stand out in the marketplace.
You can choose from multiple colors and have the option of having them fully lit or partially lit. We will work closely with you to make sure that the illumination looks exactly the way you want it, and we’ll make sure that it’s durable enough for everyday use. These tiny lights create a bright glow that can be used for any number of purposes. Here are just a few examples:
- To make the button more visible in the dark.
- To add visual appeal to your product.
- To signal that something has been pressed
Avoid using the wrong type of board. Button boards come in a variety of sizes and shapes, so be sure to choose the correct one for your project. If you’re unsure about which type of board is best for you, ask for recommendations from your supplier or check out their website for more info on their products.
Avoid using a board that’s too small. Button boards can be quite small, but they don’t have to be! You should avoid using button boards that are too small because they may be difficult to work with and may not fit into your project as well as larger boards would.
Avoid using a board that’s too big. Button boards come in all shapes and sizes, so you’ll want to make sure that you choose one that fits into your product without being too bulky or taking up too much space.
