Next-Gen Button

Product: Dynamic Bet/Bash Button Manufacturer: Omron Amusement Company

For many decades, Omron Amusement Company has supplied leading-edge gaming component technologies to Japan’s pachinko/pachislot industry, with a keen focus on sensor, switch and optical lighting technologies. Over the past 10 years, Omron has expanded promotion of new technologies globally to include casino gaming applications worldwide.

New cutting-edge technologies are being added to gaming cabinets at a quickening pace, and Omron’s release of the new Dynamic Bet/Bash Button is no exception.

Omron, which has developed button technologies for over 20 years, is introducing a new low-profile, dynamic bash/bet button for use on top of touch-screen button deck displays. This new “floating” button technology uses sensors in place of traditional electromechanical switches, but retains excellent tactile feedback for the gaming player.

The new button’s large transparent lens cover allows for excellent display messaging and visibility, and the optional halo LED bezel lighting adds colorful eye-catching highlights. In addition, excellent life/durability test ratings and an IP54 seal-ability construction greatly reduce the risk of button failure in the field.

Mounting a button on top of a gaming touch panel display can be a great cause for concern. However, Omron’s dynamic button has a strong support bracket allowing for secure mounting to the button deck. For designs which require it, a virtually invisible clear FPC connection with locking connectors and a relay logic PC board are options available in the new dynamic button assembly. Also, Omron’s unique “screwless” mounting feature allows for easier button replacement.
