Ocular Adds More Capacitive Touch Panels
Touch panel with protective glass covering.
Dallas, TX — Ocular's Crystal Touch, an innovative projected capacitive touch panel, is now available in 4.3, 7.0 and 10.1-in. (109, 178, and 256mm) panel sizes with multi-touch capabilities. The expansion of this line of touch panels allows for more diverse product applications and additional customer solutions.

The Crystal Touch family of products provides increased durability and clarity of the displays. Previous touch panels, such as the resistive touch interface, use a film on the screen's exterior which scratches easily and therefore has a shorter useful life. The Crystal Touch projected capacitive touch panel has a layer of glass on the exterior, increasing durability and allowing the panel to handle a wider range of temperatures. The panel provides a clean surface for coverplates to be securely attached, which in turn increases readability, is strong enough to handle harsh cleaners and has a contemporary look and feel.

The additional panel sizes allow the company to meet demands of current applications while creating an opportunity for additional products to utilize this next generation touch panel in a broader range of industries.

Current applications of these panels include portable televisions, point of sale modules, medical devices, automotive and many other industrial applications.
