Touch Switches Boost Transparency, Cut Reflectivity

Touch Switches Boost Transparency, Cut Reflectivity

The company’s latest capacitive touch switch technology detects variations in position and command, eliminates air gaps, and reduces the number of layers required. The technology enables a minimum transparency of 95% and reflection is less than 15%. Improved visibility results from less reflectivity and higher transparency of the image displayed through the touch panel and allows for a thinner touch screen, in the realm of 0.5 mm to 0.7 mm thick in the viewing area. The capacitive touch screens also exhibit a wide operating temperature range from -20°C to +70°C. Sample prices are $50 for the T-55343 (3.5" transmissive), $66.00 for a T-55149 (3" transflective), and $70 for a T-51963 (3.5" transflective). Optrex America Inc., Plymouth, MI. (734) 416-8500.
