Capacitive switches

Finding vendors who excel in design, manufacture and deliver capacitive touch switches is a challenge, forcing OEMs to spend extra time and money on sourcing these capabilities. Molex’s vertical integration structure of experienced design engineers, state-of-the art manufacturing facilities and global reach facilitates fast time-to-market custom capacitive switch solutions in a wide range of design options.

In industrial and transportation applications, dirt, water and chemical ingress can damage the switch, causing defects. Capacitive switches can be designed to IP67 specifications, providing protection from harsh chemical exposure, weather and spills.

With fast time-to-market, capacitive switches provide robust, reliable custom user interfaces for applications including industrial, medical and consumer.
