They are manufactured from polyester or incorporate a printed circuit board as the circuit layer. Overlay and spacer can be provided for assembly to your Printed Circuit Board (PCB) if required.
They are supplied with a flexible tail for connection while PCB based designs can incorporate connectors on the rear for the connection of ribbon cable or similar.
- Hard wearing
- Adhesive backed
- Proven, reliable compact switch technology
Keypad design can incorporate backlighting in the form of Electroluminescent (EL) or Lumitex Fibre-Optic Panels. Easy integration of these technologies into the switch structure, allows button graphics to be lit even when using metal domes for tactile feedback.
Electronic Component Integration
Membrane Keypads also offer the option to integrate devices such as led's and resistors within the assembly. Integration by such will reduce the time spent aligning led's behind a graphic panel.
As the front surface of the keypad is essentially an overlay panel, all the design options that are available for overlays apply to membrane keypads.
We can supply membrane keypads pre-assembled onto backing panels manufactured from steel, aluminium polycarbonate or PETG, which in turn can also incorporate mounting holes, standoffs and studs if required.
