What To Know About Membrane Switches:

Membrane switches are a type of electrical switch that are used to activate and de-activate an electrical circuit, turning it on and off. Membrane switches are operated by pressing on a certain area of a graphic overlay–oftentimes a button of some sort–in order to communicate the user’s commands to the device so that it will perform a desired function. Membrane switches are used for all types of electronics, appliances, and technology, including remote controls, microwave/oven panels, exercise equipment, medical devices, and so on.
