Zytronic, a leading manufacturer of durable, customized Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT™ and MPCT™) touch sensors, will give show attendees an early look at the company’s new range of multitouch controllers at Digital Signage Expo (DSE) March 28 & 29 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (booth 2050). The company’s forthcoming ZXY500 controllers will set new standards for the design, speed, accuracy and performance of touch screens ranging from five to 95 inches, enabling near-edgeless glass designs and facilitating the improved integration of contactless peripheral systems such as NFC payment.
The Zytronic touch controllers previewed at DSE will allow touch sensors to be designed with substantially reduced non-active borders, for example less than 10mm on a 55-inch screen, which is less than half of the current industry norm. Interactive digital signage – and video walls in particular – are fueling demand for elegant, multi-display installations fronted by narrow touch screen borders. Zytronic’s new controllers, combined with their highly durable and fully customizable touch sensors, offer complete design flexibility without minimum order quantities – making them ideal for a wide variety of self-service and public-facing touchscreen applications.
Based around Zytronic’s latest proprietary ASIC, the compact ZXY500 controllers benefit from an industry-leading signal to noise ratio, allowing higher noise immunity and enabling wireless technologies such as RFID, NFC and Qi wireless battery charging to be integrated adjacent to the touch active area without impairing performance. These technologies emit signals that tend to interfere with the operation of conventional projected capacitive touch screens – however, this interference is all but eliminated by the new controllers.
“The ZXY500 controller range will significantly enhance the capabilities of our customers’ touchscreens, bringing a new level of touch performance to interactive self-service systems,” said Ian Crosby, Zytronic’s Global VP of Sales & Marketing. “The new feature set delivered by these class-leading touch controllers will free designers to create interfaces that are more capable than ever before.”
Enhanced object recognition and other new product developments will also be demonstrated at DSE. Show attendees are invited to come see Zytronic in booth 2050, or visit http://www.zytronic-inc.com for more information.
