Metal Over Cap

Pressing the two plates closer will increase the capacitance

  • Sense through metal

 

The key advantages of mTouch® Metal Over Cap technology are:

  • In addition to plastic and glass, senses through stainless steel, aluminum and more
  • Completely waterproof
  • Glove friendly
  • Can differentiate a soft touch from a hard touch
  • Allows braille implementation
  • Uses the same hardware and software as capacitive touch

 

Mechanical construction

  • The only difference is the introduction of a spacer layer to allow the deflection of the front panel
