To use keyboards in a poorly illuminated area, or activate keys to draw the users’ attention to something, backlighting can be a handy tool. Therefore, Clicktouch offers different options for providing your control panel with light.

Electroluminescent lamps

EL lamps are foils that emit light. They allow keyboards to be used in a poorly lit evironment.

Clicktouch offers a complete range of customer-specific EL illumination. These products have excellent quality, a long life span, offer a wide range of possibilities and are available in different colours. The give a superior illumination.


Glass fibres can offer an alternative for EL-lights. Individual keys or areas can be lit using this material. They can be used in combination with Clicktouch keys, Clicktouch Force Sensors (CFS) and Capacitive Touch Sensing (CTS)

Secret until lit

A nice visual effect by which a key, text or symbol only become visible after illuminating (by LEDs, electroluminescence or fiber optics) these. The illumination can e.g. be activated after pushing a key, switching on the power or by means of proximity switches.

Application examples of backlighting:

Keyboard or dashboard illumination, design illumination, illumination for medical research, emergency exit signs or routing (airplanes, trains, offices). In case of smoke, an EL line can indicate the escape path.
