Keypads using Touch Switching technology are one of the most reliable switch solutions available for electronic products. Diamond HMI offer our own designs of custom capacitive keypads as well as Force Sensing keypads via our association with ALGRA, a world leader in force-sensing touch switching interfaces.
Since the integration of touch screens into consumer applications such as mobile phones and tablets, a shift to them being used in industrial applications has followed. User familiarity, and rapid developments in the technology making them a popular choice for engineers. Durability, high water, and scratch-resistant, and sensitive key operation are just some of the features that have made them a versatile keypad solution for industrial environments. Touch panels also delivering a more modern looking interface solution, with extra functions and no moving parts, so they tend to last longer than traditional switches.
There are a variety of different touch switch technologies available, the varying design features can be adapted to suit a wide range of external and internal environments, at Diamond we can advise the best Touch Switching Technology based on your individual project.
