Interactive Play Area

Application:

Introduction of interactive functions in to soft play and childrens playgrounds.

Considerations:

The sensor must be waterproof as the application could be outside. The sensor must provide enough durability to prevent down-time and service issues.  The sensor will be operated by children so a low activation weight must be acheived, however, the sensor must not be activated by the top surface of the playground.

Solution:

The pad is constructed using 2 standard mat switches encased in a waterproof PVC cover. The sensor pad was placed on a flat concrete surface with the playground top material placed on top of the sensor.

 

 

 

Key Requirements:

  • 200 x 150mm interactive switch mat
  • Ribbon switch technology
  • Activate under soft-playground material surface
  • Low activation weight – Child
  • Waterproof
