Capacitive Switches


Last Update: Oct 22, 2018 @ 10:56

These small switch modules can be used directly with the Decaf board digital inputs. There are three models offered, 4 pad, 8 pad and 16 pad. The rear of the boards are also touch sensitive, making it feasible to mount the modules into an enclosure. Stick-on labels can be used without affecting the capacitive action. The thickness of three to four business cards or the equivalent can be used. The capacitive effect does not work reliably through 2.6mm or thicker glass.

The 4 pad switch includes a flat cable that connects to the Decaf IOC Digital Output connections.

Note the pads are labeled 1-4 (digital outputs OUT1-4) which would normally be connected to Decaf DIG_IN_0-7 pins as desired.

When one or more pads are touched, LEDs on the board illuminate.


PiXCL SW-CAP-8

CapSenseSwitch_8way

The 8 pad switch includes a flat cable that connects to the Decaf IOC Digital Output connections.

Note the pads are labeled 1-8 (digital outputs OUT1-8) which would normally be connected to Decaf DIG_IN_0-7.

When one or more pads are touched, LEDs on the board illuminate.
