Tapeswitch standard ribbon-switch models offer a broad range of pressure sensitivities and a wide range of sheathing materials, switch lengths, end-termination seals, exterior colours, lead-wire combinations and mounting options, as well as substantial resistance to moisture and chemicals. Ribbon switches are also incorporated into Tapeswitch edges and mats, giving all Tapeswitch products outstanding performance.
