Crystal Display Systems (CDS) has launched ruggedised PCAP touchscreens and monitors without the ugly copper wires.
With this development and the ability to work through up to 6mm of glass, you no longer have to accept the ugly copper wires that inhibit contrast and viewability for the user on your displays and digital signage.
These multi-touch sensors are typically constructed on a 1.2mm substrate, allowing a sacrificial 6mm cover glass, meaning they are durable enough to withstand most impacts and extreme applications. This technology will detect fingers, conductive stylus and even somegloved hands, through glass thicknesses of 10mm yet it ignores raindrops, leaves, dirt, ice, making the touch sensors ideal for most environments.
With excellent durability, the Rugged-Vue provides 24/7 functionality in the most difficult environment, minimising system downtime, reducing maintenance and maximising return on system investment. The CDS Ruggi-Touch Monitors are HID compatible, work with water and have excellent high accuracy and reliability; they are multi-touch capable with 10 points of infinite touches directly through coverglass.
Exceptional Optics via ITO PCAP touch (no copper wires visible) available up to 6mm glass cover lens with drift free touch coordinates using finger, certain glove or passive pen input. The monitors can operate in environmental extremes – temperature range -40 to +85 degrees centigrade.
The technology is proven, vandalresistant, practically immune to many types of abuse and costs much less than the older copper wire technology, which affects viewability, said CDS.
