Capacitive technology

Capacitive keypads – For heavy use

Capacitive keypads offer an ideal solution for comfortable operation of machines and devices. Only a light touch on the capacitive key elements, which are located behind a completely closed, continuous front, detects your keystroke.
The closed and smooth surface is particularly characterized by its high resistance, durability and the multitude of possible uses in industry and medical technology. In addition, the capacitive keypad has no moving parts, it responds to the touch of a finger through a sensor electrode. The surface can be easily cleaned with water and also with cleaning agents or disinfectants, which is why it can also be used in highly sensitive areas with maximum hygiene standards. It can also be easily operated with special gloves. In addition, the keypads can be illuminated individually and completely according to your wishes. You also have almost unlimited freedom of design with regard to the shape, design and material of the capacitive keypads.
Choose the user interface that suits you best from several options. You can choose from foils, glass, polycarbonate, Plexiglas or other printable materials.

How to make your capacitive membrane keypad a complete success

Würfel Icon Idea / Concept

Send a sketch, CAD data or we visit you on site and record the requirements

Pinsel Icon Engineering

Construction with all technical features, buttons, colors and shape

Haken Icon Approval

Approval by the client and “good to print”

Pfeil Icon Production pilot series

Production of the pilot series. On request with initial sample test report

Lastwagen Icon Series production

Production of membrane keypads or input units

Schleife Icon Assembly on housing

Mounting of the membrane keypad on an housing or front panel

After the feasibility check and the quotation phase, our specialists create a detailed release drawing (good for printing) with all relevant data of your membrane keypad. This drawing shows materials, color definitions (in RAL or Pantone) as well as the conductor paths and the electrical circuit diagram. During this phase, any changes you wish to make can be incorporated into the design without incurring any costs. After approval we start the production of the pilot series.

Ideally we like to combine our membrane keypads directly with one of our enclosures to a complete operating unit. If this cut is made directly by us, you can be sure that the membrane keypad has been assembled correctly and you will not have any rejects due to possible assembly errors. In addition, your stock-keeping is reduced.
