Zytronic’s Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT™)-based ZYTOUCH® chosen by Abuzz for award-winning Edge kiosk

  • Location:  Australia
  • Industry:  Tourism
  • Product:  Shopping mall way-finder

Introduction

Zytronic’s ZYTOUCH® touch sensors were selected by Abuzz Technologies in 2007 for use in its globally deployed, award-winning interactive wayfinding kiosk product, the Edge. Using Zytronic’s unique projected capacitive technology (PCTTM), the Edge satisfies the high ergonomic and safety requirements of installations which are typically situated in busy public areas as well as being aesthetically stylish.

Key Information

The slim, stylish Edge kiosk is designed for use in airports, shopping centres, corporate and government buildings for wayfinding and displaying company information or directories. Zytronic’s’ PCT™ utilises state-of-the-art capacitance technology which means that the touchscreen can be started with gloved and un-gloved fingers, as well as providing unrivalled durability.

The Edge kiosk won a 2007 Australian Design Award for its combination of world-class design, ergonomics and safety. The interaction surface is a continuous piece of 8mm toughened glass, which not only exceeds the safety requirements for public use, but also makes the unit splash-proof for robust operation. The 37-inch ZYTOUCH® touchscreen is in portrait-format and is designed to be height-adjustable, enabling use by adults and children, and by wheelchair users.

“Zytronic was the only manufacturer with the technology to allow us to optimise the functionality and aesthetics of the Edge kiosk without compromising the integrity of our design concept. PCT™ sensing technology works reliably, even through the thick layer of toughened protective glass, providing the performance we need. In addition, the product was simple to integrate, thanks to first-class technical support.”
