AMT Releases Low Reflective Design for PCAP Touch Panel
09/12/2018 | Bulletin No : AMTNE18011
Outdoor, mission critical and other systems used in direct sunlight must ensure displayed information is legible. It has been more than ten years since AMT brought a Low-Reflective (LR) resistive touch solution to market and our abundant experience and technology allowed us to create a touch panel with greatly reduced light reflectivity. Now, AMT has released a LR design to address this issue in projected capacitive (PCAP or PCI) touch panels. Our goal was to lower light reflectivity to 1.5% to meet the PCAP touch solution requirements set by our customers.
Currently, there are many ways to design a PCAP touch panel. AMT uses Glass-Film-Film (GFF) while some manufacturers adopt Glass-Film, some Glass-Glass, etc. None of these standard PCAP touch panel designs can reduce light reflectivity to 1.5%. AMT has successfully designed a PCAP LR touch panel that can achieve this 1.5% which will be released in October of this year.
AMT LR PCAP touch panels utilize a two-layer glass design. The cover lens is a glass panel paired with an Anti-Reflective (AR) coating. It can also be décor glass. The sensor is a Double-sided ITO (DITO) design. A polarizer layer helps achieve a light reflectivity of 1.5%±0.5%. AMT LR PCAP touch panels also confer a light transmittance rate of 85%±3%. Currently, AMT LR PCAP touch panels are available in dimensions from 3.5” to 21.5”. This touch solution can greatly reduce the effect of reflected sunlight, satisfy customer requirements, and make LCD displays visible under the strongest light.
AMT LR PCAP touch panel design is different from standard PCAP touch panel structure and all AMT LR PCAP touch panels can be paired with PenMount PCAP controllers. AMT LR PCAP touch panels retain the array of features built into PenMount controllers whether noise immunity, water handling, thick cover lens, or gloved operation.
One of AMT’s strengths is supporting customers in rolling out products to virtually any environment. AMT can create a powerful, reliable, and rugged total touch solution to meet your needs.
