OTTO Launches Capacitive Touch Switch

Posted by Reed Prentice on Aug 12th 2020

OTTO Introduces the CS Capacitive Touch Switch

The new CS Series Capacitive Touch Sensor Switch is designed for applications where control functions are needed for an unobtrusive style. Since there are no moving parts, the switch has an extremely long life.

The switch changes output level with the presence of a finger or hand (gloved or ungloved) which makes it ideal for use as a simple on-off switch.

The switch sensing area can be a concave surface or a slightly raised surface. It can also be customized to accommodate surfaces of irregular shape. The CS is designed to be mounted in a panel, grip, armrest or other surface. The switch can be used as a single device or in combination with additional CS switches and controlled by software.

Another unique feature for the CS series is that it can be painted over and still function. This makes it ideal for customers who want to place their own pad printed icon or clear adhesive icons.

The CS series comes standard sealed to IP68S and IP69K.
