CIT’s TH Series Capacitive Switch is available with a flush illuminated actuator with two ring size options, each with a brushed stainless steel finish. LED color and state options include single or dual LED with LED voltage choices of 5VDC, 12VDC or 24VDC and max current of 15mA. The standard UL1430 22AWG wire length is 30cm, but custom lengths are available from New Yorker Electronics.

A touch-controlled capacitive switch operates by measuring change in capacitance when depressed. When touched, the electrical charge disrupts the switch’s own electrical charge, causing a change in capacitance. The CIT Relay & Switch capacitive touch TH Series is ideally suited for use in vending machines, gated community guard houses, traffic controls, industrial controls, appliances, infotainment centers and more.

The TH’s actuator is made of stainless steel with a Polycarbonate (PC) LED Lens. The 16mm and 19mm versions are available with a thick illuminated ring, the 25mm is available with a thick illuminated ring and the 22mm is available in both styles. Most come with a standard bezel, the 16mm comes in a 4.5mm-high bezel.

Single LED colors include red, orange, green, blue and white available in “Off / Color” and “Color / Off” states. The Dual LED colors are designed in red-green, red-blue, blue-green, white-orange and in the reverse orders. Its dielectric strength is 250Vrms min between contacts with an insulation resistance of more than 10MΩ min @ 600VDC and an operating temperature of -40°C to 85°C.
