Touch banners with electric field sensing for washdown environments

Banner Engineering's next-generation touch buttons for its K30, K50 and K70 multicolor indicators and pick-to-light sensors employ smart electric field sensing and provide immunity to false triggering caused by the buildup of detergents, oils and other foreign materials, as well as exposure to direct water spray.

The K70 features a 70 mm touch dome with a 30 mm base and is designed for larger industrial applications in addition to jobs that require more visibility. The K70 is available in nine color options and one-, two- and three-color models.

The 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-color models, while the K30 is available in one- and two-color models. New FDA models are also available, which are constructed from FDA-grade material and fully encapsulated for use in food and beverage applications. The K30, K50 and K70 indicators are also ergonomically designed to eliminate hand, wrist and arm stresses associated with repeated switch operation, requiring no physical force to operate. The indicators can also be easily actuated with bare hands or in gloves. The next-generation touch buttons offer momentary or latching versions. All models feature rugged, fully encapsulated IP67/IP69K construction for optimal performance in high-pressure wash-down environments.
