Projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreens, the established technology in the consumer field, was further developed to fullfil industrial capability. This technology allows operation through glass and plastic surfaces or other non-conductive materials. The glass printing from the rear enables a wide range of customer-specific designs to be created.
As we getting more and more used to touchscreens behind glass (mobiles, tablets, etc.), switching behind glass attracts the interest of the industry. If one takes into account the possibilities switching behind a cover lens gives, it is clear that capacitive sensing technology is recognized as future proof.
SCHURTER introduces its new RTS. The RTS is a particularly compact overtemperature protection device using advanced SMD technology. It is suited for the highest demands of protection in power semiconductors.
RTS stands for "Reflowable Thermal Switch". It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors like MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, Triacs, SCRs, etc. from overheating. Before mechanical activation, the RTS can be mounted using conventional reflow soldering techniques with temperature profiles up to 260 °C.
The new DD14 combines an IEC C14 appliance inlet with 2-pole switch and 2-pole fuseholder. EMC performance is further enhanced with a depth-saving 2-stage filter. Shielding is optimized by screwing the metal casing of the filter to the panel, using its horizontal or vertical flange. A snap-in filter version eliminates the flange, consuming even less panel space.
SCHURTER expands its successful range of current-compensated chokes with a series for 4-wire high-current applications on printed circuit boards. The new DKIH-4 series is available for three phase applications with neutral line at rated currents from 10 A to 40 A. Due to the open design, the chokes are particularly compact and light.
SCHURTER presents the new waterproof IEC connector consisting of the appliance inlet type 4761 and the rewireable cord connector type 4762. With its high protection class IP 67 or IP 69K connected or unconnected with cover, this appliance coupler is perfect for supplying power to appliances used in harsh environments such as industrial, marine, laboratories or any type of outdoor appliances.
The FPBB RAIL filter from SCHURTER is an extraordinarily slim double-stage, single-phase filter, measuring only 25 mm in width. The attractive space-saving design integrates an optional fuseholder or circuit breaker. Additionally, an overvoltage varistor is available in all three variations. FPBB RAIL: three functions in one ultra-slim housing.

Resistive Touchscreens were the real breakthrough in common use touchscreen technology. With resistive touchscreens also came flexible, cost effective touchscreen technology which is available for industrial and medical use. Nowadays resistive technology is a mature well known technology. Resistive technology has been available within the SCHURTER group for nearly 20 years.
