Accessibility through Braille modules for the visually impaired
Feel the words of innovation
The writing and reading system used by people who are visually impaired is called Braille. An original Braille cell consists of 6 raised dots, arranged in two columns. This arrangement has been extended to an 8 dot code (4 dots per column) enabling 256 possible combinations.
Louis Braille established this matrix in the year 1850, about 30 years before Jacques and Pierre Curie discovered the Piezo effect. About 170 years later you came across our experience on braille modules. Get inspired by our endless options for innovative Piezo actuator solutions from Johnson Matthey Piezo Products with the highest quality made in Germany.
Tactile feedback for millions of fingertips
Worldwide pioneers in Braille technology
Our compact and cost-efficient Braille cell
32 pin Braille-cell from Johnson Matthey
We designed a compact and cost-efficient Braille cell, incorporating Piezo bending actuators, mechanics and basic electronic parts required for connecting and driving. The cell design with 32 Pins in a single module allows to streamline components and production processes.
- Engineered for cost efficiency
- Easy and time saving service, dismantling, cleaning
- Pins not falling out during cell dismantling
- Compact in size to fit into many device designs
- Braille cell incorporating 4×8 Piezo benders for cost saving
Braille modules or keyboards are just one example of a successful application in an endless area. Think of tactile feedback that combines sensor and actuator properties, integrated into smart devices for a perfect user experience.
