Switches • Membrane Switches

Membrane switches are used in industrial control applications and consist of an electrical, momentary switch device placed on a flexible substrate.

Popular for use with industrial controls, a membrane switch is an electrical, momentary switch device in which at least one contact is on a flexible substrate, such as a PET or Indium Tin Oxide. Responsible for turning a circuit on and off, a membrane switch typically has six or more layers. The top layer of the switch is the graphic interface between the user and the machine. Membrane switches are used in a number of classic electrical appliances including microwave oven panels, air conditioner control panels, and television remote controls.
