SEM-001-2X directional capacitive sensors are designed to detect hand movement direction. They can detect up/down or left/right movement, depending on the sensor mounting orientation. They use our patented multi-sensor technology for reliable detection of the movement while maintaining a large sensing range.
The sensor works through most materials and can be used as an input device for a wide variety of electronic devices. The sensor has two outputs, each dedicated to one of the directions detected.
Different output and detection options offer a wide variety of usages for a directional sensor, from dimming lights, raising blinds and projection screens to opening/closing, locking/unlocking doors, all simply done by an elegant directional gesture.
