Capacitive Touch Solutions Provide Flexibility

Projected capacitive technology is one of many available touch sensing methods used to provide human interfaces to machine controls.  The electrical current that passes from the finger to the machine activates capacitive coupling between the finger and the switch on the plane below. Capacitive sensors are non-contact devices capable of high-resolution measurement of the position and/or change of position of any conductive target.

So what's so great about capacitive glass panels?

Esterline Interface Technologies provides a complete control panel solution using many front surface materials.  One common example is the use of tempered glass.  Glass has a number of benefits and can also be printed on the rear surface to produce a nearly indestructible graphic.  When combined with capacitive sensors, a glass panel produces an extremely attractive and functional human interface device.

Glass fronted control panels that incorporate projected capacitive sensors have no moving parts, are easy to clean, are resistant to most chemicals, can be tempered to improve strength, can be used outdoors, can be used with bare hands or gloves, can be decorated and illuminated and will work even if the glass is scratched or cracked.  MORE►
