Combining capacitive switching with multi-colour area-specific backlighting, Stadium-IGT has announced a range of LED Backlit Capacitive Switch Modules for OEM Designers.
Available in 20mm and 35mm versions, the swicthes are suitable for mounting into panel thickness of up to 7.0mm. The swicthes deliver a full RGB illumination of the touch area, which the company claims offers unmatched uniformity of Illumination. The design of the switches include a non-latching output of 40mA and a maximum operating supply voltage of 6VDC to 28VDC. Further to this, the swicthes feature an operating temperature of 0° to 50°C, with the 35mm version offering designers adjustable low, medium and high touch sensitivity to suit the application.
The product range signals an offering which until now has only been available in custom designed HMI solutions.
Terry Moss, Sales and Marketing Director of Stadium-IGT, commented, “This new, off the shelf standard backlit switching solution allows panel designers to prototype and evaluate HMI designs without the need to develop custom capacitive sensors and backlighting.”
