A new line of analog resistive touch panels, including a 9H surface panel for Point of Sale, hospitality, industrial and medical applications, has been introduced by Fujitsu Components of America.

They include Fujitsu’s Feather Touch, two-finger function PERFS (Pinch, Expand, Rotate, Flick and Swipe) touch panel and a 9H top surface for increased durability, scratch and wear resistance. This ultra-durable, 4-wire resistive panel is 40 times more scratch resistant to stylus use than panels with a polycarbonate layer.

Companies that depend on handheld industrial devices for signature capture are finding that damage to the device’s touch screen from repeated stylus use is a costly issue. In most cases, the touch screen’s functional life exceeds its cosmetic life. Using this 9H top surface will significantly preserve the touch panel’s appearance and extend its usability. The 9H-rated touch panels are also suitable for mobile and personal medical monitoring devices that are prone to scratches from repeated stylus use or being carried in pockets or purses.

Other panels include custom 5-wire Feather Touch panels (up to 17-inches) for Point-of-Sale applications in restaurant and hospitality environments. These panels require just 0.02-0.3N force input for gesturing functionality typical of more costly projected capacitive touch panels.
