W7ED Capacitance-Type Touch Sensors

Omron’s W7ED sensors are easy to use and can be easily designed into existing systems

Image of Omron's W7ED Capacitance-Type Touch SensorsOmron’s W7ED touch sensors do not require sensitivity adjustments or design circuits which minimizes development time. These sensors also achieve reliable operation using a touch electrode that changes capacitance depending on the level of touch.

The W7ED touch sensors connect easily as touch electrodes, and touch sensors can be fastened by just using screws. Omron’s sensors are easy to use and can be easily designed into existing systems compared to integrated circuit (IC) touch sensors.
