Tapeswitch offers a wide variety of pressure sensitive, general purpose signaling switches for use with medical equipment and devices that function as control switches for operation in various applications. Available models include ribbon switches, touch pads, foot switches, hand switches, and sensing cells. The ribbon switch can be applied to applications, such where an operator can stop a device, machinery, or equipment in operation and motion, so as to avoid a collision or injury to a person from the powered equipment. It is offered to OEMs for 50 years of reliability to integrate signaling and sensing into their device’s design. This can be applied to medical devices large and small, such as scanners, imaging devices, lift tables, medical tables, hospital beds, and any electrically powered medical devices with a simple custom manufactured switch built to specification and size from Tapeswitch.
