Based on standard Clicktouch design, Vandal-Proof Keypads have a metal top plate and metal push buttons with a patented end-of-travel protection against heavy impacts. They guarantee electrical contact in environments where keyboards need additional protection: e.g. telephone keyboards, lifts, door codes and banking terminals.
Charge Transfer Sensing (Cts)
The new Force Sensor converts pressure, weight and forces towards a measurable electrical quantity: resistance. As to construction, Force Sensors are comparable with the Clicktouch Membrane Switches. While combining this top technology with well-controlled production processes, sensors are made that are also thin, light and flexible. Furthermore, these can be designed completely customised and can be combined with and within a membrane switch keyboard.
Silicone Rubber Keypads
Silicone rubber moulded keypads allow freedom in the aesthetic and ergonomic design of the keypad. Four-directional joysticks are available in addition to conventional pushbuttons. These keypads are particularly suitable for applications such as mobile phones and access control.
An exciting product development is the Clicktouch T35 membrane switch. At 35mm in diameter, the switch is one of the largest tactile polyester switches available from any manufacturer. Originally developed for wheelchair controls, where the operator could have difficulties in activating a more conventional switch, the T35 Clicktouch provides a large target area, coupled with a low actuating force. The switch is available for a range of commercial and industrial applications.
