SCHURTER has introduced an innovative touchless hidden switch (THS) series employing optical sensor technology that can be concealed behind any surface without the need for mounting holes. A small opening in the user interface is all that is needed to allow the time-of-flight (ToF) sensor to actuate.

Equipment and appliances used in public areas have created demand for non-contact switches to replace conventional touch-activated switches. The THS is a touchless switch that provides an excellent hygienic solution to prevent the spread of pathogens. It not only serves its practical purpose as a momentary switch, but also adds an element of design for out of the ordinary sleek and sophisticated custom user interface design.
