Digitizing household mechanical switches with CoolMOS C7.

Switchboards are available in all forms and designs. They find application in every household electrical wiring. Switchboards provide electrical insulation from the live circuit, but sometimes these boards fail to perform their jobs under certain circumstances. The reasons could be many as follows: 1. material used in switch may degrade over time and lose their dielectric property. 2. Wet hands sometimes create contact with the live circuit. 3. Under extreme heat, sometimes the switches undergo deformation.

Thus these switchboards do not completely provides electrical insulation for the user. To solve this I have come up with the idea of replacing the mechanical switches with TFT-LCD panels which offer complete isolation from the live electrical circuit running behind your switchboards.

Advantages of this piece of technology: 1. Smaller Footprint compared to traditional switches. 2. Noise free. 3. Efficient and have longer service life. 4. Inexpensive 5. Easy to install and use.
