SAN DIEGO, CA, December 7, 2018

Visual Communications Company (VCC), a recognized global leader in the illuminated electronics market with advanced indication and specialty illumination solutions, has won a prestigious 2018 Elektra Award for its CSM Series. After making the shortlist for the second year in a row, VCC took home the honor in an awards ceremony in London on Wednesday, December 5, 2018.

In a decision made by a panel of industry experts, VCC’s CSM Series beat four other finalists in the “Passive and Electromechanical Product of the Year” category. The CSM Series capacitive touch LED sensor displays deliver a host of benefits, most notable are their small size and high reliability. These sensors measure only 15mm x 15mm x 3.20 mm virtually eliminate the size constraints OEMs and designers would face when designing sleek human-machine interfaces.  

VCC’s second generation of capacitive touch LED sensors, the CSM Series packs a smaller footprint, plus the manufacturing efficiencies found only in surface-mount technology (SMT).

From reducing the total weight of the assembly to taking up to one-half of the space on the PCB and enabling higher density connections, the CSM Series has a lot more to offer than consistent illumination.

The award-winning series enhances human-machine communication in many ways, including:

  • Capacitive touch sensors that can work with a gloved or damp hand
  • Customizable or standard icons for improved visual communication
  • Available in a variety of colors: super red, white, pure green, blue and yellow

“We are so proud of our CSM Series and honored to win such a highly competitive category, VCC is helping customers in a wide range of industries elevate their product designs while ramping up production efficiencies. We’re thrilled to help move the industry forward and will continue to do so by adding innovative new products like the CSM Series.”
