Capacitive operating units protect against contamination and allow for optimal levels of hygiene. We create capacitive keypads with numerous functions and design options. Customised designs are available, with the choice of acrylic, film or glass surfaces. The integration of sliders and wheels for added operating comfort is also possible.

  • A variety of design variants thanks to free graphic design of the surface with the sensor surfaces underneath
  • Full-surface bonding of the individual layers of a capacitive keypad ensures excellent protection against impurities and water ingress
  • Very smooth surface, e.g. glass, simplifies cleaning and fulfils the highest hygiene standards
  • Convenient operation through pressureless contact with the sensor surfaces
  • Unlike the membrane keypad, no tactile response – this can be replaced by an acoustic or optical signal
  • Creation of prototypes, pre-production series and small batches
  • Programming
  • Construction
  • Production of drawings
  • 3D measurements of individual parts
