A capacitive switch detects the presence or absence of a conductive object, such as a finger, by measuring changes in capacitance. This means there are no mechanical components within the switch – eliminating any potential mechanical failure and offering excellent durability in even the harshest environments.
Our capacitive switches possess a self-contained system that gives flexibility to the design of your product. We are able to incorporate these switches with many different features including backlighting, touchpads, touchscreens, proximity sensors and more to create a product exclusive to your application. Common applications for capacitive switches include automobiles, computers, cell phones, consumer electronics, and industrial machinery.
