The modules meet the increasing market demand for projected capacitive touch panels for industrial use. Their intuitive operability, expansive temperature range, excellent color quality and wide viewing angles allow for diverse applications and installations. Initial production has been set at 2,000 units per month for each model.
Highly reliable and comprehensive touch panel solutions
- All-round solutions including TFT-LCD, PCAP touch panel and driver software allow highly capable and convenient industrial products.
- TFT-LCD, PCAP touch panel, cover glass, touch controller and software are all factory-installed and provide excellent reliability.

Clear image quality and smooth operations even through 2.8mm glass
- High sensitivity and true-color display even through a 2.8mm glass cover and enabled by ultra-thin and highly conductive sensor lines made from proprietary TFT array technologies.
- Proprietary detective processing technologies enable a smooth response to finger movements even when wearing gloves.

Multiple options increase suitability for various applications and environments
- Glass bonding of TFT-LCD module, touch panel sensor glass and cover glass provides clear image quality even in bright outdoor environments.
- A variety of options like strengthened cover glass and anti-reflection/anti-smudge surface treatments are also available to tailor products to any operational environment.

About Projected Capacitive Touch (PCAP)
Capacitive touch is a touchscreen technology that uses two perpendicular layers of conductive material to form a grid. When a current is applied, it forms a uniform electrostatic field. The touch of a finger or other conductive object will distort the field, allowing the system to accurately track movement across the screen at multiple points. This technology is commonly adopted in smartphones and tablet devices.

Environmental awareness
The color TFT-LCD modules are fully compliant with the European Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS), and are completely mercury-free.
