Next-Generation Touch Buttons From Banner: Featuring Smart Electric Field Sensing For Superior Immunity

Banner Engineering has introduced its next generation touch buttons for the K30, K50, and K70 multi-color indicators and pick-to-light sensors. Banner's next generation (Gen 2) touch buttons employ smart electric field sensing. This technology provides the Gen 2 touch buttons with excellent immunity to false triggering caused by the buildup of detergents, oils, and other foreign materials as well as exposure to direct water spray. It also improves actuation performance with gloves.

The K70 is a brand new addition to Banner's multi-color and pick-to-light sensor family. The K70 features a 70 mm touch dome with a 30 mm base, making it optimal for larger industrial applications in addition to jobs that require more visibility. There are nine color options with the K70 and one-, two-, and three-color models for flexible performance.

The next generation 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 FDA models are gray in color to better match stainless steel and to differentiate them from the standard models, which are black.

In addition to excellent immunity, next generation K30, K50, and K70 indicators are 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.
