Projected Capacitive2 Touch Technology

The Elo Projected Capacitive touch technology enables touches to be sensed directly or through a protective outer layer:

  1. The DirectTouch touchscreen consists of a 3mm glass layer
  2. The ThruTouch touchscreen senses touch through a customer-installed outer layer including vandal-resistant glass up to 10mm thick
The complete system depending on the customer-selected outer layer can resist impact, scratches, vandalism, heat, rain, snow, and ice or harsh cleaning fluids, making it well-suited for outdoor applications. The new Projected Capacitive2 touchscreen is thinner and lighter than previous versions. When paired with the new bus powered external 6610 USB controller and dedicated driver increased levels of reliability and longer life expectancy are obtained, resulting in a drift-free response and a low-maintenance unit that requires no recalibration.
