There may be no situation in which projected capacitive (PCAP) applications are more widely used than in  commercial settings.  Many commercial systems share the challenges of systems placed outdoors or in high traffic areas.  In addition, commercial systems that process payment information must incorporate powerful data security measures.

AMT PCAP touch solutions can be found in kiosks, POS machines, payment systems, voting machines, and more.
