A capacitive switch is similar to a membrane switch but a capacitive switch has no moving parts. Removing the moving parts from a switch reduces the number of fail points for critical applications. Sensing technology is utilized by using an electrical field to detect the increased presence of capacitance. Sigma 6 Electronics services many industries including: defense, commercial, and industrial for their capacitive switch needs.
