The first capacitive switches with touch sensor technology from CAPTRON were used in 1994 for public transportation. Today, CAPTRON offers a wide range of capacitive SENSORswitches for various industrial automation and industries and applications where unconditional reliability, durability, comfort and design are required.

In addition to a wear-free and maintenance-free electronics, the SENSORswitches have a very robust and vandal-proof design. Their 100% water-and oil-proof construction will resist even the most adverse environmental influences as well as industrial effects such as dirt, dust and chemicals.

The versatility of SENSORswitches means that they can be used almost universally with different shapes, materials, connection types, installation types, installation depths and specific standards and requirements.

If necessary, SENSORswitches from the standard range can be tailored and modified optically and technically to meet individual customer demands


Product Series

CANEO series

Meet the new CANEO series. The new HMI Standard capacitive switch combines innovative design with the option to freely configure all function parameters via IO-Link. As a result, CANEO switches can be flexibly integrated into connected environments, offering major benefits for all HMI applications in the industrial automation, mechanical engineering, robotics, and building technology industries.
