Touch buttons with superior ­immunity
May 2016, Operator Interfaces, Switches & Relays


Banner Engineering has introduced its next-generation touch buttons in its range of K30, K50 and K70 multicolour indicators and pick-to-light sensors. Employing smart electric field sensing, these touch buttons provide superior immunity to false triggering caused by the build up of detergents, oils and other foreign materials, as well as exposure to direct water spray.

The K70 is a brand new addition to Banner’s multicolour and pick-to-light sensor family. Featuring a 70 mm touch dome with a 30 mm base, the K70 touch is optimal for larger industrial applications in addition to jobs that require more visibility. The K70 is available in nine colour options and one-, two- and three-colour models for flexible performance.

The next-generation K30 and K50 offer flexible communication and simplified setup of a single device, or multi-point applications. The K50 is available in one, two and three-colour models, while the K30 is available in one and two-colour models. New FDA types are also available, constructed from FDA-grade material and fully encapsulated for use in food and beverage applications.

In addition to exceptional immunity, next-generation K30, K50 and K70 indicators are ergonomically designed to eliminate hand, wrist and arm stresses associated with repeated switch operation, requiring no physical force to operate. The indicators can be easily actuated with bare hands or in gloves.

The next-generation touch buttons offer momentary or latching versions. Momentary configurations remain activated as long as touch is present, while latching models start up inactive and toggle between activated and not activated on successive touches.

All models feature rugged, fully encapsulated IP67/IP69K construction for optimal performance in high-pressure wash-down environments.
