Capacitive switch


The Senso PAD is a touch-sensitive button that allows the triggering, through a material, of playback files thanks to an input contact.

As an example the touch-sensitive button Senso PAD can trigger any Waves System player.

The Senso PAD is a proximity touch sensor that is not requiring a direct contact. Stuck onto an insulating surface, the presence of a finger is detected through the material (wood, glass or any insulating materials).

The reach of detection relies on the size of the electrode (that allows a detection up to 2 cm) and on the kind of support.

The SensoPad is an invisible touch-sensitive button onto wood and makes a glass surface become interactive.


SensoPad replace all common solutions (button, encoder, tactile sensor, etc…) and ensure a perfect integration with setup installation (desk, stand, glass, etc…).

  • Trigger sounds, videos or events through any insulating surface. Replace push buttons.
  • Invisible and theft-proof user interface in interactive terminals.
  • Man-machine interface in industrial applications.
