Wessex Advanced Switching Products has developed a new capacitive switching system to add to its range of membrane and silicon switch panels. These products were originally developed for passenger aircraft seating but can be used where there is a need for non-mechanical switching. As with most WASP products these can be designed to meet most conditions and can be used as conventional switching using a printed graphic overlay or can be incorporated in a see-through overlay and used as a touch screen.
The system uses the body's natural capacitance where the capacitive sensors identify the switching requirements with or without a touch.
The use of a translucent front layer lends itself to backlighting and the panel can be totally sealed at the user end.
