Keypad Technologies for Demanding Environments

What is Duraswitch?

Pushgate Makeup
Duraswitch® combines the best features of both an electro-mechanical and a flat panel membrane switch into a durable and robust thin keypad assembly that is designed to thrive in harsh, abusive, and rugged environments. Duraswitch® utilizes two unique technologies. Use one or both to create a custom, fully-featured user-interface designed to thrive in the toughest environments.

  • PushGate® is a patented push-button design that incorporates crisp tactile feedback similar to an electro-mechanical switch. By using magnets and an armature, parts that typically wear out are eliminated. The thin profile of PushGate® switches works without the scraping, flexing, or grinding that typical membrane switch components endure.
  • thiNcoder® rotor – The Duraswitch thiNcoder® rotor is an ultra-thin, non-invasive encoder that enables greater design customization.
