Traditionally, information and ticketing terminals have used alternative touchscreen technologies such as resistive or infrared. However, since projected capacitive touchscreens have become commonplace in mobile handsets, consumers can find these older touchscreens unresponsive by comparison.
Projected capacitive touchscreens also offer manufacturers other advantages in terms of device longevity as there are no moving parts, the device is always calibrated and the sensor is safely behind a front glass which can be designed to withstand significant abuse without failing.
TouchNetix provides a range of robust industrial grade capacitive touchscreen modules suitable for information and ticketing terminals in sizes up to 24” inches diagonal. Touchscreen modules can also be built to meet specific impact resistance ratings depending on the requirement.
TouchNetix touchscreens are all multitouch, enabling operations such as pinching and zooming for navigating maps or looking at images. With multitouch all touches are detected so if a user leans on the screen whilst operating it, this touch can be detected and ignored, without affecting the operation of the display system.
With careful touchscreen design and tuning, contaminants on the touchscreen surface such as rainwater, can be detected and ignored, a feature which is critical for terminals installed outdoors. TouchNetix have developed the Brilliance and Luminance product families covering a range of screen sizes. TouchNetix can also develop custom information terminal touchscreen products for specific design requirements.
We asked TouchNetix to provide a drop-in replacement for a product we had previously sourced from a company in Germany and where we had delivery, yield and performance problems. TouchNetix delivered the project on-time and exceeded our performance expectations
I can't think of anything related to the project which could have gone more smoothly.
On behalf of our R&D team I would like to thank you for the great effort you put in place on our oven and hob projects! This was a very complex and challenging electronic system, and was a key project for us. We are happy to see that working together we were able to achieve good results and to match the timing of mass production. Your professional support has been really appreciated by us
After several unsuccessful attempts to procure suitable capacitive touchscreens from the large number of vendors in Asia and their representatives in the EU, we are establishing a very strong relationship with TouchNetix as they have the ability to deliver and support everything that we need including for our most challenging applications.
After being let down by previous suppliers, we engaged with TouchNetix in Q3/2014 and have been impressed with their right-first-time philosophy. For time critical projects or where performance is critical, we wouldn't work with anyone else.
TouchNetix have delivered our YotaPhone touch interfaces through bold and creative thinking. We believe that the deep cooperation between our two companies during the development of the YotaPhone has delivered a truly innovative world class product.
