Real World Applications for Value Added Resistive Touch Solutions

03/02/2016 | Bulletin No. : AMTNE16005

As the world leading manufacturer of resistive touch screens, AMT supplies total touch solutions to fulfill the requirements of numerous customer applications in the industrial, commercial, and medical fields. Many of our products perform specialized roles in different demanding environments and many years of accumulated expertise makes AMT one of the foremost total touch solution companies. Some of our most in demand products are value-added resistive touch panels that can be engineered to meet a wide range of customer needs.

One such solution is our line of glass-film-glass (GFG) resistive touch panels. While the surface durability of traditional film-glass (FG) resistive touch panels is limited by ITO film’s hardness of 3H, the 0.2mm top glass laminate of GFG panels raises surface toughness to Mohs 5 (9H pencil hardness). The utility of this product can be further expanded with structures such as anti-glare (AG) and low-reflective (LR) to produce a highly durable and reliable user-friendly interface.

Our customers have integrated AMT resistive GFG LR panels into numerous real world outdoor projects which require readability in sunlight. Other inherent product characteristics also make this item well suited for certain environments. The durability of GFG panels make them ideal for factory environments or built into vehicles. Operation from -30°C to +80°C allows placement in refrigerated locations or desert environments. In addition, customers can also utilize GFG panels in their system mechanical designs to meet IP65 standards against dust and liquids for use in mining and shipping. AMT resistive GFG LR touch panels can be used in industrial locations such as wind/solar/hydro power plants, port facilities, ship building, sewerage treatment, oil, gas, quarries, and winter sports facilities.

In addition to reliability and durability, GFG panels can also be enhanced aesthetically and to further resist noise interference. The border of the glass cover lens can be printed to simulate a flat appearance. This is a popular option for medical systems. An EMI shielding layer can also be applied to the touch panel to further segregate noise interference emanating from neighboring electronics. This EMI shielding has been applied in projects where security is a paramount customer concern.

For mission critical systems, customers require a reliable touch system that can be used long term. The surface of a GFG touch panel is glass, possesses scratch and chemical resistance, and, as a resistive touch panel, is less susceptible to water and noise interference. Thus, AMT GFG resistive touch panels are the most reliable and durable choice. AMT is committed to the long-term supply of resistive touch solutions.
