The threat of the coronavirus is forcing us all to take far-reaching measures to reduce health risks as much as is possible. Many customers are asking about the hygiene of control panels. The touchless operation of CapKey and PCAP control panels from SCHURTER ensure exceptional hygiene. Coffee and parking machines no longer need to be touched. The touch screens at petrol stations, kiosks and in many other places remain untouched and therefore cleaner. 

Touchless CapKeys

Operate capacitive switches without touching them: SCHURTER has developed a special capacitive sensor with extra active guard. This results in maximum sensitivity, allowing the finger to be noticed sooner. The guard ensures that the capacitive action of the CapKey is more concentrated towards the user. The capacitive key can therefore be operated without touching the glass. Keeping one finger near the CapKey is enough for a good switching contact.

Touchless PCAP

In the development of PCAP sensors, SCHURTER has taken an important new step when it comes to hygiene. By developing sensors and fine-tuning the controller, SCHURTER has succeeded in making a projected capacitive touch screen "touchless". The touchscreen reacts at a small distance between the finger and the actual surface. The hardware and software settings of the PCAP controller, especially in terms of sensitivity, are crucial in this respect. With our extensive knowledge of design and firmware we have been able to make this development possible.
