Capflex™

Curved Capacitive Switch

When something is made to be simpler and more powerful simultaneously - we call that elegance. With no screens, no buttons, no moving parts; e2ip capacitive switch technology (available as flat or single-curved) brings a new level of elegance to your surfaces. Highly durable and aesthetically-pleasing, Capflex™ is the ideal choice whether the setting is intended for work or play.

Tap into the Future

Capacitive switches typically consist of a thin circuit board, the key component, that sits between a backing layer and some form of durable top overlay. Using a sensor, it then behaves with the familiarity and convenience of a touchscreen, without the need for a screen at all.

This compact design can often feature printed electronics and overall requires very few parts in its entirety. Capflex™ effectively enables almost any surface to become an environmentally stylized, touch-controlled electrical smart surface. Touchscreens saw keypads become the screen, and now the screen becomes the surface. This is engineered elegance at its finest

There are many benefits to using this kind of technology. Thin and lightweight, Capflex™ can be seamlessly integrated into almost any space, including those containing flat or single-curved surfaces. Allowing those surfaces to remain clear of any beveled buttons, knobs, or embedded screens, a curved capacitive switch may be dead front by design, and can cleverly conceal its utility and effectively disappear when not in use, offering both convenience and aesthetic appeal.

CapFlex is easy to clean and maintain, can be made scratch, fingerprint, and water-resistant for high durability, and offers increased hygiene as a result. This makes it particularly useful for applications in the medical and healthcare industries.

Select from a wide variety of top layer substrates in many different shapes and sizes, and benefit from the increased flexibility this form-fitting technology offers. Backlighting is available in two-color interswitching states, using most colors in the RGB spectrum., and delivers a crisp, uniform display while maintaining a remarkably lower power consumption.

Tactile sensitivity can be attained and programmed depending on the intended environment and user experience desired. Capflex™ offers interaction as modern as its sleek finishing.
