Every industry has its own needs and challenges, whether agriculture, healthcare or hospitality. While Telamco works with a variety of business types, the agriculture industry is a common customer. We partner with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), distributors and even directly with farmers to provide membrane switches for agriculture.
Their stories are all unique, which means how we help them is personalized. Often they seek a membrane switch solution, which is our specialty. Here are few situations we’ve encountered with the agriculture industry.
Original Equipment Manufacturers
Milk Parlor Milking Machines
A manufacturer of a milk parlor milking machine makes a machine that turns on and starts right at the point of use by the cows. They need to be able to clean the machines and have them be dependable. We implemented a switch portion on the outside of the controller case of the milking machine to meet their requirements.
Starting in the 1980s we started working with a manufacturer of hay balers to create a membrane switch for a controller. These components work hard and balers often require consistent repair and replacement parts because of the demands placed on their components. This OEM reports circumstances where the Telamco membrane switch successfully functioned for 30 years!
Working with P&R Surge Systems for over 20 years allows us to continue to learn about irrigation systems. They have a membrane switch on their controller made by Telamco. Weather, moisture and outdoor elements impact the membrane switch design. These factors must be considered to ensure a reliable, functioning product.
P&R Surge Systems, Inc. offers a product for the agriculture sector for irrigation to help conserve water, time and energy while producing a better crop. We’ve been buying our faceplate keypads for this product from Telamco for over 15 years. They have never let us down. I deal with many companies for our product and have learned over my 30 years that you need a good relationship with any company to keep the wheels turning on both ends. I, as President/Owner of P&R Surge, have high faith in and respect for Telamco. I will never consider going with someone else. With that said, I would highly recommend them to anybody.

A dairy farmer that manages 3,500 – 4,000 head of cows was dealing with switch failures on their milking machines. They were having too many failures impacting their productivity, so they contacted Telamco to build the switch they needed. After using the switches for a year, they happily reported that none of the Telamco switches had failed. They were also impressed with the cost, which was drastically lower than the previous replacement switches purchased.
A distributor that previously sold OEM replacement switches for milking equipment was dealing with switches malfunctioning regularly. They needed to find a different resource for their customer, so they contacted us. This distributor now successfully sells a Telamco manufactured OEM replacement switch to their customers.
