Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2017117037A1] A transmitter device incorporating a strain gauge proportional push button is disclosed. The transmitter device includes a printed circuit board including one or more electrical components thereon and a proportional push button having a flexible membrane, a dome switch positioned beneath the flexible membrane and attached to the printed circuit board, the dome switch being proximate to the flexible membrane such that depression of the flexible membrane causes the dome switch to snap down and thereby form a closed circuit in the dome switch, and a strain gauge formed on or applied to the printed circuit board and positioned adjacent the dome switch, the strain gauge generating an electrical output proportional to an amount of deflection of the printed circuit board caused by pressure exerted thereon by depression of the flexible membrane and the dome switch.
