ALMAX offers four backlighting technologies for your membrane switches and rubber keypads:
- MaxFilm proprietary backlighting
- LED backlighting
- Fiber optic backlighting
- Electroluminescent backlighting
We can integrate lighting into specialty switches and offer multiple colors to meet your brand and product requirements. Additionally, our proprietary MaxFilm backlighting technologies provide consistent lighting of large areas at a reasonable price point.
Our proprietary MaxFilm backlighting technology adds illumination to icons and large areas of membrane switch graphics without the high cost and limitations of other backlighting methods such as fiber optics or electroluminescent.
LED technology produces clean clear light with very low energy needs. Not only does our LED process create a more durable illumination than any membrane switch backlight, but it also allows for greater flexibility during design.
Fiber optic backlighting typically gives a higher total light illumination than you will get from other backlighting technologies. You can integrate fiber-optic technology into nearly any membrane switch or product.
ALMAX can integrate electroluminescent, or EL lighting, into membrane switches, flat panel displays, and other electronic interface assemblies. Virtually any size electronic interface can be lit using electroluminescent lighting technology. Our electronics manufacturing expertise makes us an ideal supply chain partner for EL lit interfaces, either full assemblies or discrete components.
