Ideal for robust applications such as kiosks and industrial projects

The face surface of a capacitive switch can be made from durable hardcoated acrylic or glass up to 10mm thick, making your device completely vandal proof and creating a smooth sealed and indestructible unit.

Without having the need to drill holes for mechanical switches, protruding buttons or knobs to contend with, service or maintenance requirements are minimal. The unit will be completely sealed and easily wiped down for cleaning.
