Capacitive sensing offers developers a new way to interact with users that overcome the traditional problems associated with mechanical levels or push button switches that engage a solenoid controlled value.  Exploring the use of capacitive sensing in a water cooler illustrates not only how capacitive sensing can make devices more reliable but also how the controller managing capacitive sensing can take on additional functions to add further value to customers as well as reduce maintenance expenses.  To read more about this topic, visit
