The CPS family of switches is available with 16mm, 19mm and 22mm diameter housings and 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, offering a momentary or latching switch function. Rated for operation across voltages up to 60VAC/VDC and currents up to 100mA, the switch is protected to IK09 and IP67. The CPS actuator expands further on actuation options with a so-called finger guide, which is designed to enhance the user experience.
Customers can choose from 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. Customers can then select a single color, bi-color, or multicolor configuration. Besides a set of predefined standard variations, the CPS can easily be customized to specific requirements by simply choosing from a list of options in the configurator list provided in the data sheet.
