Manufacturing a Reliable Custom Capacitive Switch

What is a Custom Capacitive Switch?

A custom capacitive switch senses touch through capacitance changes. When you touch a capacitive switch, the electricity stored in your body interacts with conductive material in the switch. The switch senses the resulting change in capacitance and reacts according to its programming.

Capacitive touch technologies are becoming increasingly popular—and for good reason! They are durable, sleek, and efficient. Our custom capacitive switches can be tailored to suit the needs of your specific application and are suitable in a variety of environments. We can incorporate backlighting or haptics into your switch if required for your project.


Capacitive Switch Customization Options:

  • Custom sensor placement and programming
  • IP67 or NEMA4 water proof design options 
  • Compatibility with backlighting technologies to create a custom backlit keypad
    • Side fire LEDs to uniformly light large areas
    • Top fire LEDs to light small areas
  • Overlay Customizations:
