Do you have an application that comes in contact with water? If your answer yes, we recommend adding a gasket to yourmembrane switchdesign. A gasket design is suggested for high moisture environments and can prevent liquid ingress. In a standard membrane switch design, the circuitry is made out of the same material as the ribbon cable; therefore, a tail filler is needed. The tail filler replaces the ribbon cable shape in the materials and the gaps on the side of the ribbon filler are potential pathways for liquid to enter the switch.
Cubbison's Gasket Design Membrane Switch is in accordance to NEMA 4.Contact usfor additional information on our membrane switches. Cubbison's in-house engineers are available to offer design assistance.
