SCHURTER CDS1 Configurable Display Switch


  • Fully configurable input and display function
  • State-of-the-art technology
  • Full faced touch screen
  • Round OLED display
  • Plug-and-play

SCHURTER announces its new generation of human-machine interfaces with the CDS1, a switch-sized input system using capacitive touch technology. The intuitive operation with the touch of a finger, swipe or rotation on the touchscreen conveniently resembles that of a smartphone, delighting users with visual and sophisticated taste.
Plug-and-Play can’t be easier. Unpack, connect and immediately begin using the machine simulator (Windows) provided. Fully configurable, the user decides on the imagery to be used for selection. The selection is then activated with just a swipe of the bright round OLED display. Tap the home LED to return to the home screen. Change up the image or add features like subtle fade-in and fade-out. The same flexibility applies to the glass screen, e.g. any symbols on the softkeys are possible. All images, graphics and animations can be loaded to its 4 MB internal mass storage via Micro USB 2.0 interface. Standard machine control communication interfaces I2C, SPI or RS232 are available.
