Schurter's ClearCap technology offers transparent capacitive sensor fields for easy integration behind glass, polycarbonate or polyester. This single-layer, customizable sensor film includes pre-definable touch fields in the active display area. Normal capacitive function keys are also possible.

For small-diagonals displays or larger displays with simple menu structures, ClearCap technology is presented as a cost-effective capacitive solution. Keys, sliders and wheels are easy to integrate and provide a flexible functionality in an attractive design with effective costing.
