Elastomeric: This keypad provides a great look and excellent tactile feel. Epoxy caps make this keypad extremely resistant to wear and suitable for all environments, except where petroleum-based chemicals (oil) are present.

Membrane: Best used when working in harsh conditions where chemical, dirt and liquids may be present.

Backlit: Best used in low light conditions.
