NKK Switches has introduced its high-resolution SmartSwitch and SmartDisplay series of programmable LCD switches and displays. These devices provide a programmable human interface that simplifies how users interact with machines by using a changeable graphical interface.

The high-resolution LCD programmable pushbutton switches and displays with RGB LED backlighting feature a programmable and changeable 64 x 32 pixel LCD module with 64 backlight colors that displays graphics, alphanumeric characters or animated sequences including four lines of text with as many as ten characters per line.

These high-resolution devices incorporate bitmap display functions with a variable brightness backlight that is variable in eight steps from dark to bright. The integrated liquid crystal display provides a wide viewing angle with high contrast and clarity. The SmartSwitch and SmartDisplay offer a FSTN positive black and white LCD mode, with a LED backlight capable of generating 64 colors. Epoxy-sealed straight PC terminals prevent entry of solder flux and other contaminants.

The SmartSwitch is highly reliable and provides a long life of one million actuations minimum. The viewing area of the switch measures 15mm x 10.8mm (horizontal x vertical). The viewing area of the display measures 13.9mm x 10.6mm (horizontal x vertical).These devices are suited for a variety of applications that require a graphical user interface or real-time sequencing. The SmartSwitch product line simplifies and improves complex multi-decisional operations in string-dependent switch systems. Applications include audio-video broadcast workstations, industrial control panels, medical equipment, and communications systems.

Pricing starts at $35 each for quantities less than 1,000. Volume pricing is also available for larger quantities.
