Schurter's new Metal over Cap (MoC) is a useful option for durable and robust switches and keypads without mechanical moving parts. This capacitive MoC technology is a good alternative to the piezo switches.
This robust switching panel is designed for use in harsh environments and can be equipped with front plates of stainless steel or aluminium. The customer-specific graphical printing of the surface design is made by screen printing with an additional protective coating. The sensor electronics with common communication interfaces is mounted on a rigid PCB from the rear. The MoC technology is robust against vibrations and permits use in an extended temperature range of -40degC to +85degC.
Schurter's MoC technology can be used in building and security technology, transportation and construction machinery. Go to www.schurter.com for more information.
