Touch Pad

Just released, our great new Touch Pad. This compact inexpensive touch pad, utilizes the latest in Capacitive Touch Sensing technology, to provide a ready to run touch switch that can be easily incorporated into control panels or with your Arduino Board.

The unit is fully self contained and requires no programming or software support. Simply connect to either a 3.3V or 5V power supply and the unit will give a digital output on both touch as well as when a hand or finger is in proximity to the touch pad. LED indication is also included to provide visual feedback once the pad is touched and the unit changes state. Two digital outputs are provided, one for Touch and the other for Proximity, these outputs can be connected directly to your microcontroller or control board.

Our new Touch Pad is a great and simple way of adding a touch switch to your Arduino project or a control panel in a larger embedded solution.
