Installing systems with touch capabilities outdoors often presents additional challenges. Systems located in areas without the protection of shelter are subjected to the rigors of weather, sunlight, and errant objects. As the most frontline component, PCAP touch solutions bear the brunt of scorching summers transitioning into subzero winters, UV damage, and the occasional vandal.
AMT PCAP touch solutions can be found in gas station pumps, outdoor kiosks, yachts, and mission critical systems.
