Contactless Switching System Also Features Colors

April 26, 2022
SCHURTER's new TTS switch series builds on its predecessor.

The TTS RGB adds technical finesse to the original TTS switch series introduced in 2021. The TTS series provides contactless switching, highly precise operation and now customizable colors. With the new RGB ring illumination, the TTS switch series adds a multicolor palate to its existing bi-color options. The TTS series uses the highly 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 20-60 mm. The minimum setting allows for wiping or cleaning of the switch surface without triggering a false signal. With no moving parts, the TTS 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.
