CTS Capacitive Touch Switch

The Artisan CTS™ is a unique solution for replacing electro-mechanical switches in harsh industrial, commercial or residential environments. The CTS™ uses the capacitive coupling of the human body to earth ground allowing it to sense the operator’s touch through up to 10mm glass, plastic or membrane overlays. This technology allows the CTS™ to operate even when the user is wearing thick safety gloves. UL, cUL, and CE approved.

Operating on 12V DC this controller provides 2 bidirectional outputs for reversible motor control, 6 unidirectional outputs, 6 low voltage switch inputs, and three inputs for high speed events such as RPM measurement. All solid state outputs have over-current protection and provide real-time current measurement.
