Tapeswitch Corporation was founded in 1959. The first product manufactured was ribbon switch, which was invented by the founder of Tapeswitch, Robert Koening, and his wife Sondra, who was a brilliant mechanical engineer. Over the decades, the simple and elegant ribbon switch design has evolved into many new and improved variations.
In addition, ribbon switch has been incorporated into a wide range of switching and sensing product lines, such as safety mats, sensing edges and bumpers, touchpads, and even vehicle sensing devices. Tapeswitch has been a major player in the development and manufacture of sensors for safety applications, and currently has the widest range of safety mat, sensing edge, and sensing bumper products available anywhere in the marketplace.
