Stadium IGT

Stadium IGT, with partner Acal BFi, plans to create a range of panel mounted illuminated exit switches that feature capacitive touch switch or electromechanical push button for actuation.

This innovative HMI solution features Stadium IGT's patented thin film backlighting embedded into the back-plate, offering optional colour-ways and customisable legend, providing a modern and sleek alternative to conventional switch plates.

This advanced HMI solution enables illuminated user instructions to be incorporated into the unit design, removing the need for additional displays or signage. The new exit switches use either a rugged and reliable industry standard dome actuated push-button or a high reliability backlit capacitive touch switch mounted on an acrylic material incorporating the patented thin-film LED illumination technology from Stadium IGT.

The material can be screen printed with different colours of text, making a low profile, low power consumption 12VDC powered unit that can be retrofitted to existing back boxes or supplied with a back box for new installations.

The standard text is "Press to Exit" for the mechanical version and "Touch to Exit" for the capacitive version. However, customers can personalise the switches based on text, illumination colour, switch style and operating voltage.
