Electronic Buttons - Ø22 mm, Touch Sensitive

Touch-Buttons from XECRO determine the presence of a conductive mass – like a human hand or finger, grounded metal or liquid. As soon as a hand or finger touches the surface, the switch detects the presence and instantly indicates this event. Due to the physical non-pressure technology, these buttons are predestined for fatigue-free operation. Their solid-state design with no moving parts allows unlimited operations with no wear. They are not affected by loose clothing or sheets of paper, objects which accidentally activate optical sensors type.
All switches contain a two color LED illumination activated by operating the switch or by external input.

Important: Due to the functional principle of a touch button, these devices react to water on their touch surface.
A complete series of electronic buttons that are Pressure Sensitive is available, 100% water immune and with the same feature-set and housing-styles.

Electric Connection

  • 3-wire
    idle and touch LED change according to the output status.
  • 4-wire
    same as 3-wire + one auxiliary enable input. If not engaged, both LED’s are off.
  • 5-wire
    two aux-inputs to engage LED colors indipendently of the output status.
  • 3-wire with IO-Link®

Function

  • Dynamic
    Buttons with dynamic operation are used when a precise single impulse is required to start a process. The dynamic circuit ensures that the impulse is generated for long enough to be recognized by the machine, but no longer than necessary.
  • Static
    Buttons with static operation, activate their output as long as the operator touches or pushes the button. They behave like simple mechanical push buttons.
  • Toggle | Latching
    Buttons with toggle circuit, alter their output status every time they are activated. The output status remains latched until the next activation.
  • Combo
    Buttons with combo circuit, can be used in static mode where the output is active if the button is touched or pushed. A fast double activation latches the button in a permanent on-mode from where it can be released by an additional activation.
