Elcom Designs specializes in membrane switches that are customized for various applications.
Essentially, a membrane switch consists of two polyester films, which are printed with a conductive layout. In between is a die-cut spacer that maintains an open circuit, where a finger press establishes contact switching it on. Then again, releasing this contact brings the system back to its original state.
We will be more than happy to share our extensive knowledge and experience in membrane switch technologies with our clients. Inquire with us now so we can assist you in your undertaking.
