Since 1994, CAPTRON Electronic has been developing, manufacturing and distributing capacitive SENSORbuttons for local and long-distance public transport. CAPTRON SENSORbuttons are successfully deployed all around the world in buses, trams, urban underground and overground railways, regional and national trains, safety systems and emergency phones and many other areas of local and long-distance public transport.
All that's needed is a gentle touch on the CAPTRON SENSORbutton for millions of people to rest assured that their train or bus door will open first time every day. These SENSORbuttons are user-friendly, suitable for people with disabilities, and can be used indoors or outdoors and at different temperatures.
CAPTRON Electronic has specialised for many years in the development and manufacture of capacitive SENSORbuttons for local and long-distance public transport, and sells its products all over the world.
The CAPTRON CHT SENSORbuttons product group was developed with the specific demands of local and long-distance public transport in mind. They are attractively designed, robust, impact-resistant and vandal-proof. They feature a durable coating offering resistance to chemicals, including graffiti cleaners.
The CHT SENSORbuttons work reliably in very damp, hot or cold conditions. Their clean design and visual feedback facilities, featuring 16 bright LEDs and an optional acoustic or vibrating signal, permit extremely straightforward operation. The symbols on the sensor panel are familiar all over the world.
The special capacitive technology means that just a light touch on the sensor panel is all that is required. The button does not need to be pressed, which is an important advantage, especially for passengers with limited mobility. Intelligent sensor technology prevents unintended operation that could be caused by rain, dirt or frost. The capacitive sensors only respond to touch.
With around 100 million switching cycles, CHT SENSORbuttons are exceptionally reliable and maintenance-free. They make the typical weak point of conventional door opening systems a thing of the past. The maintenance overhead for CAPTRON CHT systems is greatly reduced. Their flat profile and ease of installation directly on an external or internal vehicle surface make CAPTRON SENSORbuttons an innovation that goes well beyond the conventional door opener. They are cost-effective and lead the way in terms of the special demands and functional criteria of modern forms of transport.
The company's management team and workforce offer great flexibility and solutions that meet the needs of customers and applications. Reinhard Bellm, managing director of CAPTRON Electronic, explains: "We provide our customers with first-class solutions: you can reap the benefits of our know-how and experience to fulfil your specific requirements."
