CAPACITIVE SYSTEMS/GLASSCAPE

TOUCH THE FUTURE

GLASSCAPE by RAFI sets benchmarks in capacitive touch technologies. It's a control system that improves, simplifies, and expands human-machine communications. Resistive touch elements are no match for GLASSCAPE. Capacitive sensor technology – concealed and protected behind a closed surface – is the future. Apart from glass, many other surface materials can be used, such as plastics. Capacitive control systems go beyond a narrow field of applicability. GLASSCAPE can be used everywhere humans communicate with machines.

PRACTICE PROVEN – SUITABLE FOR ALL INDUSTRIES

Essential for industrial applications is extreme ruggedness. This is a given for GLASSCAPE. That's because our touchscreens were developed and thoroughly tested specifically for industrial environments. The closed glass surface effectively prevents any penetration of dirt, liquids, and other foreign matter. We have also achieved a high degree of chemical resistance. Due to its robustness, GLASSCAPE is also used in medical environments, the food industry, and even commercial vehicles.

YOUR BENEFITS AT A GLANCE

  • Recognition of liquids on the screen prevents inadvertent actuation
  • Temperature range of -40°C to +85°C – thanks to the ITO glass sensor
  • ESD resistance for electrostatic discharges of more than 20 kV
  • EMC resistance at field strengths of far in excess of 10 V/m
  • Easy to clean during ongoing operation without triggering the system
  • Adjustable input sensitivity so that operators can wear gloves

FLEXSCAPE

FLEXSCAPE is the combination of GLASSCAPE with a haptic rotary / push encoder. It enables fast and comfortable machine settings with tactile feedback. The rotary / push encoder can be permanently fixed anywhere on the closed glass surface, and tightly sealed. Depending on the input content, the display shows scale readings. Stepped adjustments provide reliable haptic feedback with confirmation through the usual push function. The rotary / push encoder can be tailored to your wishes.

 


YOUR BENEFITS AT A GLANCE

  • Haptic rotary / push encoder – can be firmly attached anywhere on the closed glass surface
  • Fine and coarse adjustment for comfortable, fast operation
  • Flexible scale display
  • Maximum of 24 steps for haptic feedback
  • Push function for confirmation
  • Custom design of rotating element

METALSCAPE

Capacitive technology and elegant metal optics – a combination that has never been possible before. RAFI has achieved this with its patent-pending METALSCAPE technology. METALSCAPE by RAFI provides maximum reliability paired with outstanding intuitive operation and first-class design. All operating elements in your METALSCAPE application are behind glass and metal. Only RAFI knows the secret. But we’ll be more than happy to show you the benefits.




 YOUR BENEFITS AT A GLANCE

  • Finger guidance through shape, color, and light
  • Backlit metal with unique disappearing effect of inactive operating elements
  • Proximity sensors so you can turn on the system with a wave of your hand
  • High media resistance of the glass surface – smooth, laser-cut or milled
  • Glass surfaces with high media resistance in smooth, laser-cut, or milled finishes
  • Can be used as a key switch, slider, or wheel. Integration of LEDs, touchpads, and screens
  • Glove operation can be tailored to the glove type used
  • Extremely low mounting depth
  • Intuitive Operation
  • RAFI quality, flexibility, and long-term availability
