In today’s world, where technology is present everywhere, capacitive switches are in the spotlight and play an essential role in kitchens and hospitals, among others. The Covid-19 pandemic is only increasing the demand for durable, easy-to-clean and yet aesthetic technology.

Here’s why capacitive technology is trending:

Capacitive switches are built to perform in many situations, which inevitably make the user experience better and safer.

Capacitive touch technology and healthcare

The year 2020 has seen its share of demand in healthcare equipment with capacitive switch keypads. Why? The healthcare system is going digital, the world population is aging, and the Covid-19 pandemic continues to be widespread. For hospitals, clinics, and other medical environments, this technology is user-friendly, efficient and very safe, creating an ideal combination that really speaks to the industry as a whole.

Capacitive switches are a perfect match with home appliances

When it comes to large kitchen or small appliances, user experience is key. Capacitive switches are built with a very sturdy top layer making the keypad safe and unaffected by heat, water or dirt (which comes very handy in the kitchen!). Yes, that explains why you see capacitive interfaces everywhere, from your new coffee machine to your fridge and even on your dishwasher.

If you’re looking to create a wow effect, capacitive switch keypads are definitely the way to go.

Capacitive switches are a game-changer creating a clean and attractive option that stands out from the competition. They are also reliable when it comes to cleaning, as they’re built to last.
