Marine Specifications For User Interfaces

In Marine applications that require a human to machine interface there may be a need for a complete waterproof solution. Keypads or control panels can be made water resistant using the correct design techniques and the proper selection of adhesives.

If your end product needs to withstand this type of environment, you need to make sure you select the correct supplier that can manufacture to these strict requirements.
