Integration of functions is an important aspect of modern control elements, among other things. One challenge is the contacting of such parts, which is necessary for power supply and data transmission. Up to now, cable or connector-bound solutions have been the state of the art. DraKo is the first solution for wireless supply control elements with touch operation and LED lighting in a molded part with energy and the ability to connect them to higher-level systems.
