Membrane Switch

Membrane Switch

A membrane switch, also known as a keypad or keyboard is an effective way to create a man/machine interface with your end product whilst retaining all the benefits of a fully printed overlay.

Comprising of a printed circuit layer and a front overlay, the finished membrane is both functional and informative. Where environmental concerns are an issue, the sealed technology of the overlay make the membrane switch technology an excellent solution.

Simple Connections

Membranes can be completed with either bare connections or a Crimpflex® connector for a quick and easy connection to your PCB.

Tactile & Non-Tactile

The keys can be produced with either a tactile feedback which confirms activation when pressed, or with a non-tactile format for an absolutely flat finish for easy cleaning and maximum durability.


The membrane switch circuits can be produced in two formats, a common bus layout or using a matrix style format.
