Force Sensors Heighten HMI Experience

Peratech announces integration of its force sensors into the world’s first mouse with force-sensitive analogue buttons. The Z from Swiftpoint is the first gaming mouse with pivot, tilt and roll, and utilises Peratech sensors for revolutionary ‘Deep Click’ buttons, enabling users to access dozens of different button actions while barely moving their fingers.

 

Peratech’s Quantum Tunnelling Composite (QTC) Single Point sensors incorporated into the mouse enable faster, more intuitive and precise movements compared with other mice. The thin, compact SP200-10 sensors have a large dynamic range, excellent repeatability and minimal moving parts for high reliability. SP200-10 sensors require real force to activate them, which reduces false activation. The mouse provides tactile feedback as it recognises the depth of click made when the Deep Click pressure-sensitive buttons are pressed. For gamers, the manifold benefits include configurable activation force and the ability to control throttle or speed when driving, flying or running. Integrated scope and zoom control is now possible, and gamers can use a normal click for a light attack or a harder click to launch a heavy attack. For more details, visit http://www.peratech.com
