    ✓ Provide status feedback with 2-color LED between standby and startup
    ✓ Mutual Interference Prevention Function
    ✓ High protection class IP65/67

Do you have any of these issues?

Avoid touching the switch because it's in an area with a high frequency of use, and the number of users cannot be limited.

The risk of infection is especially high when an unspecified number of people come into contact with the product. IDEC touchless switch respond to the growing need for contactless products as a measure to prevent infection.

Applications where infection risk reduction and hygiene measures are required but you don't know what to do.

As you don't have direct contacts, touchless switches can be used in applications where infection risk reduction and hygiene measures are required.

Concerned about the labor required for frequent wiping with disinfectant, resulting in surface deterioration of the switch.

Wiping with disinfectant has become routine after the spread of the COVID-19. Using our touchless switches, you will be not only saving labor and the cost of disinfectant, but also preventing the switch getting a poor appearance due to surface deterioration caused by repetitive disinfection work.

Reduction of operator burden for high-frequency switch operation.

Operation of mechanical pushbutton switches can lead to work strain if they are operated frequently. We want to reduce the burden on operators and improve work efficiency and productivity by using non-contact switches.

Improved switch durability

High-frequency switch operation also leads to a decrease in switch life and an increase in the risk of switch failure, and the durability of switches should be improved.

Standard Model (Diffuse-Reflective)

Near-infrared reflectance. Detects objects only within a specific distance range. The sensitivity control on the back of the switch allows adjustment of the maximum detection range of approximately 70 to 270 mm.
Suitable for applications that require a long range detection.

Generic placeholder image

Short Range Detection Model (Convergent Reflective)
*Available Soon

Emits and receives light at an angle. Detects objects only within a specific distance range. Detection range about 5~30mm.
Suitable for applications that require only short range detection. Avoids long range detection.

The COVID-19 pandemic made the whole of humanity suddenly aware of how much we all touch things at work and in public settings. IDEC has leveraged its extensive HMI, switch, and touchless-technology expertise to develop this switch series based on near-infrared touchless sensing. This product line imparts touchless operation to automated kiosks, control panels, and HMIs in public settings, medical facilities, and industrial food-processing and packaging locations to reduce the spread of illness caused by viruses and bacteria.
