Resistive Switches - highest requirements in hygiene and cleanliness

Resitive Switches by Hoffmann + Krippner for medical applications or harsh industrial environments. H+K offers innovative solutions that precisely adapt to your needs. Continuous operation with hermetically sealed switches in sensitive application environments, such as food or medical technology, require sealed, washable and hygienic surfaces. Encoders or rotary knobs have always been integrated through a hole in the front plate, representing a weak spot in the system. Through a resistive circuit integrated into the membrane foil, creating a fully sealed system, ability to clean and sanitize has been maximized.

Possible applications area:

  • Rotary and linear switches
  • Pressure dependent surface keypads
  • Patient monitors
  • Operation for ultrasound equipment
