SCHURTER TTS RGB touchless momentary push button switch provides contactless switching, highly precise operation and customizable colours. Device provides ring illumination, along with stylish and robust multicolour palate to existing bi-colour options. Product series uses the precise Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor technology, whereby light is emitted by a transmitter and reflected by one or more objects. The reflected light beams are then detected, and the distance is determined from the Time of Flight. The standard detection distance for the TTS series is programmed for 20-60mm. The minimum setting allows for wiping or cleaning of the switch surface without triggering a false signal. With no moving parts, device has a service life of more than 20-million switching cycles. Shock Protection is IK06. It has an ingress protection rating of IP67, and it is insensitive to splashes, drips, rain or sunlight. Laser lettering and symbols are also available for further customization.
