    can you isolate it down to the membrane or the control unit? Some of these control units have internal protective fusing. I looked at them for my new boat, and was initially keen, but then went off the idea for precisely the reason you are scratching your head now--just don't want to lose function.

    After 25 years of playing with electricity and boats, I would personally never have these things on my own rig. Over complicates what is a pretty simple thing IMO. One switch fails on a traditional set up you lose one device. If a module fails it's all gone.

    there are few very good quality membrane switches..... and they......well they are not cheap lets say. i DO think they are very good, but only one boat "government tender... so.. your tax and mine paid for it ultimately" was the only candidate to take them up.. expect upwards of 800 dollars for 6 switches for very good quality membrane..... otherwise, stick to traditional switches or digital.

    moose when you say digital what do you mean ? and may i say the relax is exactly the same product. was thinking of them but after your comment not sure now . the benefit to me is saving space?

    Yeah they do save dash space , very groovy.

    I have used the BLINK marine digital switching systems before. similar membrane style buttons, with an Ethernet connection to the control box. similar dash space saving. however these are not a cost saving option, they are considerably more expensive.

    Of all the off the shelf membrane panels the Relaxn 8 ways are the best to go for. Moose

    Membrane switches do not like low voltage at all
