Membrane keypad – illuminated and easy to use

Improve operating safety by using an illuminated membrane keypad

Find the exact lighting which you need for safe operation in the dark. Is your membrane keypad illuminated? Bring light into the darkness!
Here at a glance are the advantages for you of our illuminated membrane keypad :

  • We supply starting from a batch size of one unit
  • With and without embossing
  • Safe operation in darkness
  • Available in multiple colours for improved differentiation of the keys
  • Illustration of status messages
  • Easier for operators to read
  • Efficient, energy-saving technology
  • Reacts according to the lighting conditions and adapts to eyesight
  • Low-cost option for signal emission
  • The selectively illuminated symbols reduce operator errors
  • Depending on the application, a “disappearing effect” can be achieved

The technology for special light and working conditions: Our illuminated membrane keypads are especially suitable for use in dark environmental conditions. During daylight, the illumination effect is reduced by the ambient light.

The most up-to-date LED technology provides an optimal lighting experience at the workplace. In addition to improved operability in poor lighting conditions, the illuminated membrane keypad also offers an option for feedback for certain switch positions. Optimise your work processes in a secure, reliable way.

Profiline back-lit

The Profiline illuminated membrane keypad offers important advantages when compared with other technologies: long operating life, low energy consumption and improved tactility. This technology makes it possible to illuminate the keys separately – the light passes through a hole in the special snap dome into the integrated acrylic inlay, where it is scattered accordingly. The good tactile feel of the key element ensures excellent ease of operation for the user.

NLF Backlight

By using our innovative NLF technology, from the individual key up to a large area almost all backlighting requirements can be implemented robustly, compactly and cost-effectively. In comparison with Profiline backlit, the keys are less embossed. The use of NLF technology in the illuminated membrane keypad sectors has many advantages. They stand out thanks to their low electricity consumption, low height and mechanical flexibility .

EL membranes

EL membranes emit homogeneous light over the whole area. The high degree of efficiency means that the EL membranes consume very little power. Replacing light bulbs or LEDs with EL membranes reduces electricity consumption by more than 50%, and very little energy is lost as heat. Normally EL membranes are less than 0.3 mm thick, so they are extremely space-saving. This is one advantage of the design membrane when compared with direct selective light sources which require 2 to 3 mm thick light guides in order to achieve similar homogeneous light distribution for illumination .
