Resistive Touch Screen User Interfaces Offer Low Power
NKK Switches, a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative electromechanical switches, offers its new FT Series of resistive touch screen user interface devices. With more than a decade of experience in designing and manufacturing touch screens, NKK has engineered the highly durable FT Series to be ideal for critical applications in medical equipment.
FT Series touch screens are available in resistive five-wire, resistive four-wire, and digital versions. These devices are available through NKK's authorized distributors throughout North America.
Resistive touch screens allow for choice of user input via finger, gloved finger, or stylus. This is in contrast to capacitive touch screens where the only reliable input is via a non-gloved finger. Resistive sensing is the technology of choice for critical applications.
With superior linearity made possible through strict control during the manufacturing process and a range of customization options, FT Series touch screens provide engineers with the flexibility to handle many applications. Customization options include screen size, film choice, glass thickness, material combination, tail type and location, number of keys (on digital models), and integration of monitors and touch screens together.
