A Membrane Switch is a flat electrical keypad which provides a low cost alternative to conventional press button switches.
Graphic Products | Membrane Keypads & Switches are suitable for a wide range of industries, including Electronics, White Goods, Automotive, Communications and Security.
We are constantly developing new and innovative ways to further improve both the function and decorative design of our Membrane Switches.
A wide and varied range of options are available, including:
•Crimped Edge Connectors
•Stainless Steel Domes
A Membrane Switch is constructed of layers of polyester printed with circuit tracks of conductive inks. These layers are bonded together to create an extremely reliable switch that resists climate, moisture and abrasion.
Custom designed Graphic Facia Panels may be laminated to the Membrane Switches to suit individual customer requirements.
