Capacitive pushbutton sensor switches from Captron detect when a hand or body part nears the device's surface. They feature a robust IP69K design, wear-free operation, resistance to water, oil, and harsh environments, and are available in various mounting/operator sizes.
Capacitive switches/pushbuttons utilize touch control and are activated without pressure, using a hand or other parts of the
body. These buttons have a determinate sensing distance, which may be altered by varying the approach speed and/or damping factor.
Touch control, no mechanical pressure required
Feedback - visual signals through LEDs
22mm, 50mm and 60mm barrel sizes
Models with and without operator text
Shock-resistant and vandal proof
100% water & oil-proof - IP69K
Static (momentary action): the output signal is continuously on as long as the sensor area is activated
Dynamic (one-shot action): the output signal length is limited (typically 300ms) when the sensor area is activated
Toggle (push-on/push-off action): the output signal turns on when the sensor area is activated and stays on until
the sensor area is activated again
Semi-automatic: LED1 is controlled separately while LED2 lights up when the operating surface is touched; ideal for
prompting an operator to activate the switch
Manual: LED1 and LED2 can be controlled separately for optical feedback like a signal indicator
Automatic: LED1 is ON and LED2 is OFF when the button is not touched; LED1 is OFF and LED2 is ON while the button is pressed
