A milestone in HMI technology.

A revolutionary switch designed for industry use.

The challenge

Development of a unique and innovative industrial switch, differentiating clearly from other industry buttons and continuing to present CAPTRON as the innovation and market leader in this field.

The result

Due to an outstanding user experience, the intelligent, touch-sensitive CANEO series10 button seamlessly integrates into networked environments. 

With its nearly unlimited configuration options it clearly stands out from the rest of the market. 


An outstanding user experience


Great UX was at the core of this innovation.


Designers worked closely together with engineering, analysing the needs of all stakeholders, from actual users in the many fields to installers. This allowed us to take the CANEO series10 to the next level regarding intuitive use and easy installation. 


Its new ambilight illumination presents important and additional feedback via its side-windows to the surrounding area. This further establishes its unique, iconic design representing CAPTRON as the innovator and market leader in this field. Nearly unlimited and freely programmable functions and an appearance within a range of 16 million colors make the switch highly adjustable.

Countless configuration options


With its adaptive capabilities (sensitivity, color, flashing-rhythm, etc) as well as its supporting IO-Link and further protocols, this capacitive button integrates seamlessly into networked environments and is highly customisable in appearance and function.


CANEO series10 is made of high-quality plastic or stainless steel. A soft grip ring delivers high touch-sensitivity, its low height and 360° visibility create a strong impression in both, look and feel.

Intelligence setting new standards


Beyond its smartness and flexibility based on software connectivity, an integrated sensor measures the brightness of surrounding light, enabling the switch to automatically adapt its own illumination.

The new CANEO series10 marks an important milestone for CAPTRON: merging high quality product design and execution with user-insights and software connectivity to design the next level of smart and integrated solutions for controls.

The switch’s unique design expression together with its great user-experience turn the CANEO series10 into a true innovation.
