Touch Panels


Icons and buttons have simple use. There are different uses that you may be familiar with in your car radio, specifically PUSH and HOLD activities. In auto radio systems the station selector uses a PUSH to select a station and a HOLD to program a station to that button. We have gone a little further on this simple example


Most functions require only the light push of the desired icon on the screen

The push is usually, but not always, confirmed by the image change of the icon (button)

A beep may also be used to confirm a push


Some functions require a hold on the icon for the programmed event to be initialized.

Some hold functions require a hold and drag. Volume bars are an example of these

Other functions are Hold actuated to require concentrated use. Resets and global commands are often holds.

To wake the panel touch anywhere on the screen

Side Buttons

Some panels have side buttons that act in the same way as the icon style touch buttons. Push and hold functions are also available.


Touching buttons at the bottom of the panel will change the display image and function

Each button will take you to the page indicated. The high lit background indicates the current page.

Two buttons are common to all CECAD page designs. They are
