PCAP supply meets industrial demand

ES Nov13 Pg06 to 10 News GinsburyDisplay specialist, Ginsbury, has announced a new distribution agreement with US based touch screen manufacturer, Ocular. It will supply Ocular’s Crystal Touch: True Multi-Touch projected capacitive (PCAP) touch screens in the UK and Ireland.

Designed to combine optical clarity, durability and scratch resistance, Crystal Touch panels are ideal for user interface applications with their industrial look, bezel-free, touch interface. PCAP touch panels are also claimed to perform more reliably for longer than resistive touch panels because they register the capacitive effects produced when a finger or stylus touches the panel, not the physical deformation of the panel itself. Standard Crystal Touch panels are available with or without an optically bonded soda-lime cover glass.

Director of Ginsbury, Neville Milward, said: “With Crystal Touch, we are now in a position to take advantage of the growing customer demand for PCAP touch applications and new user interface designs.”

President and chief executive officer, Ocular, Joe Fiamingo, added: “The product specification and design-in phase is essential for our products and as a specialist technical design-in distributor, Ginsbury has the focused approach required to develop new business opportunities for Ocular.”
