Exceptionally durable Switch
SCHURTER Metal Over Cap is the ideal solution for durable switches without mechanical parts. Based on the capacitive technology, SCHURTER created a switch panel for the ruggedized market. This switching technology is a good alternative for the well-known piezo switch. The mechanical properties of the Piezo switch and the flexible options of capacitive technology meet here in one product. This all comes in a custom design in order to fulfil your specific needs!
1. Durable material
A durable front material is required for use in harsh environments such as POS / POI terminals. The MoC switch panel is made of stainless steel or aluminium. The panel is therefore protected against vandalism and is installed watertight.
2. Graphic printing
The graphic printing of the surface in the screen printing process is additionally protected against wear by a coating. With this process every individual design can be printed with text and graphics.
3. Backside printed circuit board
The sensor electronics on the rigid printed circuit board are mounted on the rear of the panel. All components are mechanically robust, are not subject to mechanical wear and tear and are resistant to vibration.
4. Mechanical treatment
To define the touch points, the front panel is milled at the rear. This allows the individual actuating force to be adapted to your application in the production process. This design enables the use of robust material with increased panel thickness.
5. Sensor electronics
Various capacitive standard chips are available for the sensor electronics. SCHURTER manufactures the complete printed circuit board for you or supports you during the integration into your system with the corresponding documentation.
If required, point lighting can be integrated into the front panel by means of LEDs in various colours.
