Membrane Switches

Supplier: Permark Industries

Membrane Switch: A flexible, printed fully self-contained switching mechanism.


With their low maintenance, wipe clean finish, and totally reliable electronic switching mechanisms; membrane switches have grown in popularity since their emergence in the mid seventies.

Membrane switches are fully sealed, ultra-reliable and provide almost limitless graphic options - ideal for domestic appliances through to industrial and agricultural equipment.

From their initial use in low value items such as childrens toys, membrane switches have earned their place as the ideal choice for much more demanding applications.

The technology has now reached the stage where highly sophisticated membrane switches are earning a top reputation for quality and reliability.

Yet there can still be an element of mystery on the part of product designers when it comes to their use. Some may be unsure how to properly and accurately specify a switch for a particular application, and what performance characteristics to expect.

Permark has developed a membrane keypad design guide which introduces the various features and options, and the points to be specified prior to quotation request.

Our clients include some of Australasia's largest - and smallest companies.
