This does not require much pressure to push the button.

Its piezoelectric circuit detects the pressure and gives a signal to the internal actuation to activate the electric circuit.

After the voltage is disseminated in the entryway resistor, the field-effect transistor (FET) turns around “off”, its ordinary high impedance state.

The piezo waterproof push button switch can be made with plastic or stainless-steel material.

40. What is the capacitive waterproof push button switch?

The capacitive waterproof push button switch uses capacitive sensor technology.

It uses the human body’s capacitance to operate.

Its external surface is made with metal and keeps charging and discharging it to detect changes on its surface.

When you touch the surface capacitive waterproof push button switch with your finger-tip, it increases the capacitance and gives an activation signal to the circuit.

41. What is the difference between piezo and capacitive push button switch?

Piezo waterproof push button switch uses the force to activate or deactivate the circuit, but capacitive waterproof push button switch does not require any force. It has an integrated sensor technology that detects the touch of a human finger.

The piezo switch is made with one combined single unit, while the capacitive switch has separate components.

The capacitive switch is not much feasible for water because they could be activated by the flowing water, while piezo switch can be used in any kind of harsh environment.

Piezo push button switch has a longer useful same as compared to capacitive push button switch.

42. Can the latching push button switch be waterproof?

Yes, the latching push button switch can be waterproof.

The latching push button switch is sealed according to IP rating under the IEC regulatory framework to make it waterproof.

Normally there are chances of dust entry in the latching push button switch that can damage it.

The waterproof latching push button switch with a high IP rating (specifically first digit) can protect it from any kind of dust or other external objects.

43. Can the sealed push button switch momentary be waterproof?

Yes, many waterproof push button switches are waterproof momentary button & waterproof latching switches.

The waterproof momentary push button switch requires the user to press the button to activate or deactivate the electrical circuit.

When you release the waterproof push button switch, it goes back to its default position. As a result, it makes or breaks the electrical circuit.

The waterproof momentary push button is normally used in indoor or private places and not commonly used in public places.

44. Are waterproof push button switch AC or DC?

The watertight push button can be used in both AC and DC circuits. Some waterproof push button switch 120v, some waterproof push button switch 12v. It depends on your requirement to install a 12v momentary switch waterproof or the other voltage. Some buttons could be engraved to be waterproof horn buttons.

Normally AC ratings are higher than DC ratings.

So, the waterproof push button switch is used at AC where there is a high voltage machine or device to be operated.

On the low capacity and small devices, the DC circuit can be used for waterproof push button switch.

45. What is the maximum capacity of the waterproof push button switch?

The waterproof push button switch is manufactured for tough conditions and can be installed to operate heavy machinery at industrial places.

For example, one type of waterproof momentary switch has a maximum switch rating of 5A 250VAC and dielectric strength of 2000VAC.

Its average electrical life is around 50000 cycles.

46. Can we use an electrical relay with a waterproof push button switch?

Yes, you can use an electrical relay with a push button waterproof.

If you want to use the relay with your water resistant push button switch, most of the time, you will only need the distant starter relay.

The start switch essentially triggers the relay, which takes care of the high amps going to the starter.

There should be low amps going through the push button switch.

You can see the function of the electrical relay with waterproof push button switch in the below video:

47. What is the difference between a waterproof push button switch and a toggle switch?

The toggle switch is actuated on two or more positions with a lever.

It is moved left or right to place on different positions for different functions.

The toggle switch is normally used to control the electric flow at different positions or to control different devices with the same switch.

While the waterproof push button switch has two on/off positions.

It can work on NO or NC positions.

Both toggle switch and push button switch can be waterproof.

You can see it below figure:

48. Can the waterproof push button switch be operated with the touch of the human body?

Yes, the waterproof push button switch can be operated with the human body or finger-tip.

Some waterproof push button switches use sensors to detect the capacitive charge of the human body to start functioning.

These push button switches are called capacitive push button switches.

But these waterproof push button switches are quite sensitive.

49. Can the waterproof push button switch be illuminated?

Yes, the waterproof push button switch can be illuminated.

The illuminated waterproof push button switch can be momentary or latching.

Some illuminated waterproof push button switches have a pilot indicator option.

There are many LED options for the illuminated waterproof push button switch.

On average, there is a 1.8V to 2.8V base voltage of LEDs on the illuminated waterproof push button switch.

The illuminated waterproof push button switches are protected with IP ratings and can be NO or NC state.
