TouchNetix offers a wide range of off-the-shelf and bespoke touch screen products that meet a number of industrial and specialist needs. Whether it is a manufacturing, medical or marine environment – our touchscreens deal with the toughest challenges. As a UK based manufacturer – all of our touchscreens are of the highest quality and can be configured to offer unique features that can be implemented to meet a wide range of operating requirements. Our product videos below demonstrate some of the important features available when using a TouchNetix screen.
Force sensing touchscreens are screens that can differentiate between intensities of touch, which allow the user to use different layers of information to optimise the user experience. One example application for this is on maps. The user just needs to press the screen with a light continuous touch to bring up a magnified area to allow for better visibility of detail. As the user applies greater force on the screen, the magnified area ‘zooms-in’ for an even more granular view. This is possible even on 100% sealed products.
When inputting information to a system via a touchscreen, versatility and ease-of-use are key. By leveraging our force sensing technology, the user can create different thickness of lines just by the pressure applied on the screen in this example application. In the real world, this allows for an application to make use of multi threshold levels or for a true analog output proportional to the pressing force.
This example application demonstrates how a user can reposition their finger once they are touching the surface and then, once the finger is correctly positioned, pressing to acknowledge the input. This allows for better accuracy of input, particularly in situations where a user is reaching out to the screen such as in an automotive application.
Using capacitive touchscreens in some industrial applications has been limited by the ability to use them with gloves. TouchNetix capacitive screens are custom designed and tuned to work with a broad range of gloves, from dexterous latex medical gloves to the heaviest of industrial mitts. This allows the operation of machinery and systems in-situ for a wide range of professional and industrial uses. When combined with our robust technologies that allow for water and other contaminants this provides a user interface suited to even the harshest of environments.
