Resitiv

TCI-News Abonieren

Resitive technology is versatile and economical for applications such as food service and retail point-of-sale, industrial process control and instrumentation, portable and handheld products, and communication devices. Resistive touch screens have flexible top layer and a rigid bottom layer separated by insulting dots, with a transparent conductive coating. Voltage applied to the layer produces a gradient across each layer. Pressing the flexible top sheet creates electrical contact between the resistive layers, essentially closing a switch in the circuit.

Advantages

  • attractive in price
  • operating with varios media
    (finger, pen, gloves)
  • high resolution, low power consumption

Disadvantages

  • reduced optical clarity
  • polyester surface can be damaged
