Industrial

Traditionally, industrial and medical equipment designers have relied on
mechanical switches and dials for system control. But ease of use coupled
with the availability of rugged projected capacitive touchscreens capable of
surgical or gloved hand operation in the harshest of environments is changing
how people interact with machines and computers in the workplace.

Our work in the Industrial sector

Human Machine Interfaces (HMI’s) are increasingly replacing mechanical dials, buttons and levers with touch screen technology. Intuitive to use, Zytronic touch screens are designed to operate in the most extreme environments offering a robust, waterproof, and hygienic solution. Our technology will detect a finger, conductive stylus and even a gloved hand, through glass thickness of 20mm or more, making it ideal for use in the workplace – be it oil rigs, mines, operating theatres or factories.

Key benefits of our systems

Industrial applications require the most durable touch technology, with sensors being exposed to chemicals, extreme weather conditions and heavy impacts.

Zytronic’s PCT sensors rise to the challenge, and offer solutions to meet even the most demanding industrial environment. The thermally toughened and laminated glass constructions of our sensors have unsurpassed impact, vandal and scratch resistance, and are unaffected by water or chemical spills, also the sensors are responsive enough to detect user interaction through sacrificial glass and gloved fingers.

Our solutions offer the ability for designers to create sealed units that comply with NEMA 4, 12 and IP65 standards or higher, all of which makes Zytronic’s sensors the intelligent choice for industrial applications. Recommended products:

  • ZYTOUCH
  • ZYBRID
  • ZYPOS
