With Ocular’s Crystal Touch, system designers are able to combine the vibrant optical quality of a TFT display, the robust functionality of a true multi-touch panel and the extreme durability of projected capacitive technology required by demanding embedded applications. Crystal Touch is made of capacitive glass, resulting in a very durable touch panel that is less susceptible to scratching, chemicals in the environment and other contaminants. The glass construction of Crystal Touch ensures a crystal clear image.

New consumer demand for products with a clean, zero-bezel, industrial design look make Ocular’s Crystal Touch projected capacitive touch panel products a perfect fit for touch applications requiring a high tech, leading-edge look. Along with its durability, performance and clarity, Crystal Touch provides significant design flexibility and has been used in many faceplate configurations, including zero-bezel designs.

Crystal Touch performs more reliably for a longer period of time than the typical resistive touch panel, which is made of film and depends upon the flexibility of the panel to register a user selection. Unfortunately, the pressure applied with each touch to a resistive touch panel gradually erodes the structural integrity of the film and reduces reliability. A capacitive glass panel like Crystal Touch registers the user selection from the capacitive effects produced when a finger or stylus touches the panel, not the deformation of the panel itself. Therefore, a Crystal Touch panel will have a significantly longer service life than many other touch panel technologies.

Whatever your display and touch panel needs, Ocular provides the best solution at the right price.
