There are a couple membrane switch myths that we’d like to debunk. Every manufacturer has different specifications and quality standards. At Telamco, quality with a high attention to detail is a priority.
Membrane Switches Aren’t Durable = Myth
Attention to detail in the engineering stage provides the starting point for quality in every membrane switch. Components manufactured by Telamco are 100% tested to ensure the highest quality. HeatSeal® adhesives are tested for bond strengths. Each button on every keypad is electrically tested and results are recorded. Telamco membrane switches are durable.
Sometimes people think that mechanical switches will last longer because they look more industrial. When membrane switches are designed and manufactured properly for their application they are very sturdy and last a long time. We’ve had membrane switches used on irrigation equipment, on fire trucks, milking machines and many other heavily used industrial pieces of equipment. The membrane switch functions well for long periods of time. Membrane switches are durable.
Membrane Switches Are Simple And Don’t Need Care = Myth
Quality manufacturing is important. Producing a solid, quality product will give your membrane switch a good start. They still need care and proper installation. When you receive your membrane switches make sure they are installed correctly. They are a part of a larger piece of equipment, product or process. Loose connections, cracked components and damaged domes could cause a product failure.
Starting with strong product design and quality production are a major part of your success. Implementing the membrane switch, maintaining it and the device it is attached to will help ensure a long lifespan. Take care of your membrane switch and install it properly.
Membrane switches are durable, but do require care and proper installation. When you do these things and choose a quality made product you’ll be happy with your membrane switch solution.Contact Telamco About Your Membrane Switches
