Zytronic rolls out flexible, capacitive touch film

Zytronic has unleashed a rollable touch film that features the company's projected capacitive touch sensing technology. As the latest addition to its range of glass touch sensors, the flexible film uses the company's multi-touch projected capacitive technology (MPCT), and targets retail and other digital signage applications that required large, eye-catching interactive displays.

The film gives designers the option of creating their own touch screen displays by laminating the film on to the rear of a transparent substrate, such as a shop window, and combining it with a projector or LCD. Available in sizes up to 2.15m, the polyester touch foils can be deployed in semi-permanent and permanent applications when correctly laminated to a suitable substrate.

Used in conjunction with Zytronic's ZXY200 and ZXY300 multi-touch controllers, the touch foils are capable of detecting up to 40 simultaneous touch points through glass thicknesses of 10mm. This results in a cost effective interactive solution with class-leading touch performance, the company stated. The thinner construction of the ZYFILM touch foils mean that they can be packed in tubes when shipped in small quantities, minimising transportation costs.

When mounted on the rear surface of a protective substrate, the projected capacitive sensor is well protected and resilient to public use. This, coupled with its one time calibration and absence of drift, translates into high levels of reliability.

Zytronic presents the product as enabling designers to use its touch technology, "regardless of the physical format of their end application. This new film delivers a highly flexible solution, in all senses of the word, and will enable brand owners to engage with customers in creative and productive ways."
