Schurter's new capacitive Metal Line switch

Schurter is launching its new series of momentary and latching push button switches with capacitive touch sensor technology inside. With this new product family, SCHURTER enters the technology trend in push button products on the market, while incorporating new and innovative features. With their elegant and modern look, these products are useful where ever a high-quality aesthetic appearance plays a role. Besides a predefined standard offering, there are many visual and functional options available to choose from. These features allow the customer to adapt the push button, or the switch in general, to their individual electrical and mechanical requirements

The new CPS family of switches from Schurter is available with 16mm, 19mm and 22mm diameter housings. The series is made of high-grade stainless steel. The CPS uses capacitive sensor technology, whereby a touch of the finger on the sensor area causes a change in the electrical field which in turn causes the switch to change its state; this occurs without any pressure on the actuator. The capacitive touch technology eliminates the need for any moving parts, making the CPS a long-life product capable of an unlimited number of actuations. The design of the CPS has a high-end look and elegant appearance, as is well-known in Schurter's Metal Line. The CPS actuator expands further on actuation options with a so-called finger guide, which is designed to enhance the user experience.

There is a wide range of illumination options, starting with the selection of a ring illuminated or area illuminated version. The area illuminated version is made of scratch-resistant biocompatible ceramics. The customer then selects a single colour, bi-colour, or multicolour configuration. Besides the basic colours red, green and blue, the CPS also offers colours like cyan, magenta, yellow, and white for custom colour variations.

Besides a set of predefined standard variations, the CPS can easily be customised to specific customer requirements by simply choosing from a list of options in the configurator list provided in the data sheet. Further customer specific-adaptions, which are not listed in the data sheet, can be requested as well. With standard and customised options, the CPS is suitable for many different applications in various industry sectors, such as industrial automation, food processing, lab equipment, door and access control panels, white goods, various electronic equipment, to name a few.
