Membrane keypads

Impulse on contact

The membrane keypad with its tactile action point that passes on the signal to the electronic system can be individually and universally used – in controls and instruments, mechanical engineering, white goods, medical apparatuses, consumer electronics, toys and the automotive industry.

Key differences

Maximum liberty in designing the surface, a closed face with embedded switches, low height (space-saving), easy to install (self-adhesive or with a supporting plate), almost scratch-proof, dust- and water-proof, simple to connect by a contact plug – a membrane keypad combines superior advantages compared to traditional operator panels.

Keypad membranes on printed circuit boards

Alternatively, a keypad membrane may be glued onto a pcb. If it is not fitted with key switches, metal domes are placed on the contact surfaces. A major advantage of this structure is that the pcb can be fitted with LEDs, resistors, etc. on both sides.
