Orbit Instrument Integrated Switch Panels: The Gold Standard for Rugged, Reliable, Long-Term Performance


Standard Interface ISPs

Custom Interface ISPs

For over 40 years, Orbit’s Integrated Switch Panels (ISP) have delivered highly reliable performance while being utilized in the most severe environmental conditions. Integrated into shipboard, airborne, vehicular/ground mobile and fixed applications, these rugged custom HMI solutions provide extended life-cycles in a full range of mission critical applications. Our focus on superior quality is exemplified by our proprietary, robust “Orbit Switch” gold-on-gold contact technology, which has delivered in excess of 30-million failure-free actuations in formal life-testing.

Orbit Instrument custom Integrated Switch Panels are available in virtually any size and shape to meet every customer’s requirements. Our time-tested technologies enable us to provide cost-competitive solutions ranging from basic one-switch designs with tactile feedback, to complex intelligent switch panels programmable to provide specific functions, with options such as labels or legend changes for the switches, audible switch depression feedback, and many others. We also configure ISPs utilizing customer-specified electrical and mechanical interfaces. Our engineers have the ability to develop Integrated Switch Panel solutions that support new operator functionalities and still deliver form-fit-functional replacement switch panels for existing systems. Orbit Instrument can develop fully independent switch panels that will output custom key codes over a specified interface. Our switch panels can be backlit utilizing highly efficient LEDs, with controls that enable the operator to select brightness spanning the ambient lighting range, from sunlight-readable to NVIS lighting capabilities.

For added functionality, and to ensure the solution supports all specific mission critical requirements, Orbit Instrument can design and manufacture a wide array of high-quality, cost-competitive additional devices, including cursor controls and displays, into your Integrated Switch Panels.
