Membrane switches

The membrane switch is compiled of the surface membrane and the switch, and the ready component can be directly connected to the circuit board. Surface-mount components, leds and resistors, for instance, can be connected to membrane switches. The keypad and signs can be illuminated with e.g. electroluminescence technology.

Advantages of membrane switches:

*   thin and lightweight

*   structure that endures mechanical erosion and wear 

*   multicoloured windows and leds

*   good chemical resistance

*   water, splash and dustproof

*   ESD/EMC/EMI protected structure

*   self-adhesive, easily installed

*   electroluminescent background lights
