Capacitive switch modules target OEM designers

Usually only available as part of a custom design package, Stadium IGT’s LED backlit capacitive switches are now being offered in component form for OEM control panel designers. Suitable for mounting into panel thicknesses of up to 7 and 11mm, the capacitive switch modules are available in 20 and 35mm diameter versions.

Combining the benefits of capacitive switching with multi-colour area-specific backlighting, the full RGB LED illumination offers a high brightness user touch area with unmatched (according to the manufacturer) uniformity of illumination. The solid state switch operates from a supply voltage of 6-28VDC and features a non-latching output of 40mA (maximum).

The LED backlit capacitive switches operate over a temperature range from 0° to +50°C. The 35mm version offers adjustable low, medium and high touch sensitivity to suit the applications of designers.

“Our patented thin-film LED backlighting is a major selling point for our custom designed capacitive switch based control panels. We recognise that for smaller projects a custom panel may not be appropriate and therefore have developed these stand-alone products for our customers to integrate into their own designs. These new, off the shelf standard backlit switching solutions, also offer panel designers a means to prototype and evaluate HMI designs without the need to develop custom capacitive sensors and backlighting,” commented Terry Moss, Sales & Marketing Director, Stadium IGT.
