Fibre Optic Lighting
Fibre Optic Lighting uses layers of fibre-optic cloth to form light. The technology has low power requirements, the ability to withstand extreme temperatures, humidity and other harsh conditions. However, it is more expensive compared with other alternatives.
Functionality, budget and environmental constraints affect the type of backlighting technology used within a keypad. Backlighting can benefit a user by drawing attention to certain areas of the panel, as well as giving off signs from colours or flashes. Helping draw user attention to certain areas of the interface. The ability to use different colours associated with actions provides more opportunity for backlit keypads in different environments. If you want more information on the possibilities of backlit membrane keypads, contact us for a free consultation.
At Diamond HMI we provide a range of membrane keypads that can be custom designed to suit backlit requirements and easily incorporated within a membrane switch assembly. For more information on construction, visit our Membrane Keypad Design & Construction page.
