Touch Screens with PCAP Technology

We are one of the leading providers with "Design in Germany" and production in Asia. Our 3rd-party production is regularly checked.

Projected capacitive touch screens are usually briefly called PCAP touch screens. They are robust, can be easily equipped with protective glass and feature multi-touch function for up to 10 fingers, enabling gesture control.

PCAP touch screens are equipped with a network of electrodes (Metal Mesh, Silver Nanowire, ITO) that project an electromagnetic field that also passes through a protective glass. If this field changes at one point due to a touching finger or a stylus, the touch position is calculated and forwarded to the controller. Drag & drop, zoom, rotate or scroll via gesture control is possible.

Due to the glass surface, the PCAP touch screens are particularly scratch-resistant and can be cleaned with all cleaning agents - an important advantage in hygienically sensitive areas.

With optional protective glasses, the touch screens are vandal-proof and can be used in public areas. However, the number of touch points may vary depending on the strength of the protective glass used. PCAP touch screens are perfect for modern True Flat designs, as known from smartphones or tablet PCs, and thus ensure an appealing device design. We can offer the touchscreens also optically bonded as a unit with a protective glass and / or a TFT display.

We provide our own series PCAP touch screens and those from DMC in sizes from 2.2" to 55" (5.59cm to 139.7cm).
