your transparant switch

The SCHURTER ClearCap is the ideal solution for small equipment with a simple menu structure. The ClearCap gives you all the benefits of a PCAP touchscreen in a simplified build. With a ClearCap solution you can create a modern attractive design with effective costing. This all comes as a custom design in order to fulfil you specific needs!

1.    Transparant switches
In many markets such as laboratory, medical and security using small LCD's as a touchscreen is over specified. By using ClearCap technology you can have a number of pre-definable, transparant touch fields by using a single chip solution. This cost effective method allows you to use touchscreen benefits on smaller equipment. 

2.    Surface material
ClearCap technology will work behind glass, ploycarbonate and polyester. This allows you to use the best material for your application. For design, hygiene and durability, a wide range of materials are available for your product.

3.     Keys and backlighting
Next to the transparant touch fields, you can easily integrate normal capacitive keys in the same technology. A great advantage of Clearcap technology is the possible use of LED backlighting in multiple colours.

4.    Sliders and wheels
An attractive feature of capacitive technology is the integration of wheel and slider functions. These functions open your user interface possibilities. 

5.     Housings and assembly
For the integration of your product into a full assembly, SCHURTER is the partner to support you. With the capacitive technology you can use flush design in order to create an attractive look and feel.
