Backlighting demands attention and also makes your membrane switches easier to use for the end user. We have a variety of backlighting options available.
Typically used for indicator lights, they are low-cost, come in a variety of colors, have thin profile options and are excellent for outdoor environments.
Thin Film Light Guide
Paired with LEDs, a thin film light guide directs light from areas that need to be backlit while still providing an excellent tactile feel. Our design and engineering team will provide the best solution to avoid light leeks and hot spots.
EL Lighting (Electroluminescent)
EL lighting consumes very little power and will begin to lose its brightness after reaching its half life. It’s a good choice for applications where the light is not left on for long periods of time. They do have a thin profile and provide uniform lighting.
