Winter is right around the corner. With that comes extreme environments. Here in Minnesota we experienced our first snowfall in October. Temperature shifts, and snow appears unexpectedly at times. That is why we like to be prepared at Telamco.
We’ve all left something outside, only to have it ruined by snow or rain. Maybe it was a pair of shoes, a book or holiday decoration. Items like this can often be replaced with a minimal investment. What if you left electronic devices outside? Replacement costs get more expensive.
The Impact of Membrane Switches
Imagine a control panel that operates something for your home or business is outside and moisture enters the control system. It creates a malfunction that causes damage to the entire connected system. This is an expense you don’t want to experience or repair. These situations are unwanted and can be avoided with high-quality equipment.
While a membrane switch may be one component of a system, it should not be left as an afterthought. Membrane switches are often the human interface of a system, used regularly and often encountering various extreme environmental elements. They need to be a high-quality product that seals out harmful contaminants, which can be things can common as rain and snow.
Membrane Switches with HealSeal® Technology
Telamco membrane switches are manufactured using HeatSeal® technology. The materials and processes used in the fabrication of HeatSeal® produces a true hermetically sealed switch. The adhesive bond produced in the HeatSeal® process is superior to that of PSA construction found in other membrane switches. The HeatSeal® bond effectively seals out harmful environmental contaminants that can cause failure in standard PSA switches. Having a membrane switch designed with HeatSeal® technology can add durability and minimize your chance of failures.
