Single illuminated capacitive switches chosen for medical monitor
31 October 2015
Stadium IGT offers a range of single LED illuminated capacitive switch modules that are proving to be critical components to medical equipment manufacturers.
Earlier this year the company was approached by a leading medical OEM to provide an HMI for a new high-performance acute foetal and maternal intrapartum monitoring system.
Stadium IGT’s single illuminated capacitive switch module was selected as it provides an on/off pulse with bright light indication to show that the product has powered up. The slim design allowed the modules to be mounted behind the control panel ensuring an aesthetically pleasing display that can withstand the rigorous cleaning required for clinical environments.
It was chosen over competitor’s products as it provided greater touch sensitivity with no-miss operation and the thin-film backlighting created better light shaping and light spread of from the LED.
The modules are very simple to connect via a sticky pad mounting and a simple plug in FFC cable and can be customised to fit space limitations of the end the product. The other deciding factors included its competitive pricing and fast lead-times.
The modules can be bought in low volumes as standard through distribution partner, RS, or customised modules can be designed and manufactured on volume to meet specific customer requirements.
