Zytronic, the leading developer and manufacturer of advanced projected capacitive touch sensing solutions, has extended its offering with the introduction of a rollable and extremely flexible touch film to complement its range of award winning glass touch sensors. The flexible film, which utilises the company’s proprietary Multi-touch Projected Capacitive Technology (MPCT™), is expected to prove particularly popular in retail and other digital signage applications that require large, eye-catching interactive displays.
The new film gives customers the option of creating their own touch screen displays by laminating the film on to the rear of a transparent substrate – such as a shop window – and combining it with a projector or LCD. Currently available in sizes up to 85 inches, the polyester touch foils can be deployed in semi-permanent and permanent applications when correctly laminated to a suitable substrate.
Used in conjunction with Zytronic’s ZXY200 and ZXY300 multi-touch controllers, the touch foils are capable of detecting up to 40 simultaneous touch points through glass thicknesses of 10mm. This results in a cost effective interactive solution with class-leading touch performance. The thinner construction of the new ZYFILM touch foils mean that they can be packed in tubes when shipped in small quantities – minimising transportation costs.
When mounted on the rear surface of a protective substrate, the projected capacitive sensor is well protected and highly resilient to the rigours of everyday public use. This, coupled with its one time calibration and absence of drift, translates into extremely high levels of reliability, which are essential for year round operation.
Commenting on the introduction, Zytronic sales & marketing director, Ian Crosby said: “We want to provide our customers around the world with access to Zytronic’s industry-leading touch sensor technology, regardless of the physical format of their end application. This new film delivers a highly flexible solution – in all senses of the word – and will enable brand owners to engage with customers in creative and productive ways.”
