The CTH Series capacitive touch sensor displays from VCC is now in stock at Mouser Electronics. Combining an integrated touch sensor IC with a high optical LED display, these capacitive touch devices provide a fast and intuitive display interface that offers an attractive cost savings by eliminating the need for a traditional switch. The robust design combines graphic interactive control with colour identification for use in a wide range of applications.

The displays offer translucent icons illuminated with different coloured LEDs, and provide superior device interaction by communicating a singular action to users such as on/off, alarm status.

The LED display produces uniform illumination and high optical clarity and is available with or without a wide variety of standard graphic overlays and colors.

Unlike mechanical membrane switches or mechanical push buttons, VCC’s CTH Series capacitive touch sensor displays have no moving parts.This improves reliability and increases operational life of the product.

These compact displays also eliminate the need for designing-in a traditional switch, which saves on cost and simplifies the design process.

The CTH series provides a more intuitive interface to ease and accelerate user interactions for a broad array of applications including mobile communication devices, point-of-sale terminals, industrialcontrol displays, gaming devices, appliances, consumer equipment, media players, medical devices, PDAs, portable instruments, and touch screen monitors.

The RoHS- and REACH-compliant devices feature a through-hole design and are offered in a standard size of 15mm × 15mm × 11mm with pitch of 2.54mm.
