Visualplanet: Single user touchfoil for rugged environments11 February 2015
The next generation of touch sensor billed to be on show at the Visualplanet stand addresses the requirements for interaction with single-user touch applications in unattended rugged environments.
A UK manufacturer of large format, projective capacitive touch sensors, Visualplanet has developed the new Single User touchfoil to address customer demand for an accurate, high-performance, zero-maintenance touch experience.
The touchfoil aims to bridge the gap between the existing speed and accuracy of large-format touchscreens and the high performance levels that customers have come to expect from small-format touch sensors, such as phones and tablets.
The new two-touch, single-user touchfoil continues to perform through thick glass, with the touch experience remaining consistent in thicknesses up to 20mm. This makes it a good match for touch applications that need to withstand high volumes of traffic in public-facing applications.
Protected behind the glass, the touchfoil remains operational in all weather conditions and challenging operating environments. Full HID compatibility and on-board processing means less
reliance on the PC and increases the product’s ease of use and dependability in the field.
