Custom-made transparent touch switches

The Schurter ClearCap is aimed at small equipment with a simple menu structure where it can provide all the benefits of a PCAP touchscreen in a simplified build, creating a modern attractive and cost-effective design.

In markets where using small LCDs as a touchscreen would be over specified, ClearCap lets you have a number of pre-definable, transparent touch fields through a single chip solution. The technology works behind glass, polycarbonate and polyester. Next to the transparent touch fields, engineers can easily integrate normal capacitive keys with LED backlighting in multiple colours.

Wheel and slider functions can also be integrated, with up to 12 keys or 9 keys and one slider, other configurations are possible with customized software.
