Input system gives users display touch control

31st July 2019

There is a new generation of intelligent input systems with capacitive touch technology. The intuitive operation with a finger swipe, wipe, rotate or tap via the touch screen corresponds to that of a smartphone and thus meets the current consumer taste.

The user decides what is displayed or activated when wiping on the bright, round OLED display and the home LED; he or she has a wide creative range from hard picture changes to gentle fade-in and fade-out. All functions are freely configurable.

The same free space can be used for the glass layout, as individual symbols can be displayed on the soft keys. The visual appearance can also be enhanced by a customer-specific aluminium decorative ring.

The configurable CDS1 display input system from Schurter has functions that can be controlled via the customer's machine control system. The user input takes place via known finger movements, such as tapping, wiping or rotating.

Individual functions can be assigned to each of the five soft keys. Each of the soft keys also offers the option of RGB colour backlighting with different lighting modes such as constant, flashing or pulsating.

No operating system software is required for operation. With machine simulator software that requires Windows 7 or higher, you can quickly get an overview of the functions.

This software can be used to simulate a machine control at the customer's site and to test the touch functions.

All new Schurter CDS1 input systems are available directly from stock at Bürklin Elektronik.
