Membrane Switches

GMN provides complete user interface custom manufacturing, design and engineering support, and sub-assembly for membrane switch panels. Versatile and economical, membrane switches are ideal for industries such as medical and industrial equipment because they are easy to clean with no moisture ingress. They also offer thin design options coupled with nearly endless membrane keypad configurations.


Membrane Switch Technology Advantages

The simple, low-profile switch panel fabrication offers a custom interface at an economical price point. Other benefits consist of:

  • Long life

  • Easy cleaning

  • Low profile and tactile response options

  • Resistance to moisture, chemicals, abrasion

  • Easier integration or retrofit with existing controllers

Construction and Specifications

A membrane switch is a micro-motion, momentary contact, flexible circuit with a printed graphic overlay. These interfaces are normally screen-printed on thin polyester using silver or carbon conductive ink. Metal domes are integrated to provide tactile feedback.
