EAO Applies Magic Touch to Passenger Door Actuators
Glass mountable Series 58 Touch-Sensitive switch reduces assembly time and increases service life.
EAO, a world leader in Human Machine Interface (HMI), has launched a touch sensitive version of the market leading Series 56 passenger door actuator to meet the demands of a new generation of public transport vehicles.
Designed specifically for the train, tram, bus, and coach market, the new Series 58 uses capacitive technology in an electronic switching element. It has no moving parts, making it incredibly durable with a significant service life. However, this type of touch sensitive technology is just not limited to transport applications. Applications such as food processing and security are ideal for this type of durable, sealed switch actuator.
Many of the new generation transportation vehicles have large expanses of glass, requiring the switching elements to be mounted directly to the glass. The new Series 58, which has fewer parts than the 56, was designed so that the element can be bonded directly to the windowpane by adhesives. No mounting hole through the glass is required thus greatly reducing assembly costs.
The touch-sensitive switch is illuminated with two green high-intensity LEDs, which then turn red upon activation.
The standard color of the Series 58 is gray with other colors available as custom items. The touch area can be laser engraved or screen-printed with a variety of standard legends as well as customs requests when needed.
