A capacitive touch screen is a control display that uses the conductive touch of a human finger or a specialized device for input.

Unlike resistive and surface wave panels, which can sense input from either fingers or simple styluses, capacitive touch screen panels must be touched with a finger or a special capacitive pen or glove. The panel is coated with a material that can store electrical charges and the location of touch to the screen is signaled by the change in capacitance in that location.

When a capacitive panel is touched, a small amount of charge is drawn to the point of contact, which becomes a functional capacitor. The change in the electrostatic field is measured to find the location. In some designs, circuits located at each corner of the panel measure the charge and send the information to the controller for processing. In multi-touch screens, sensors are arranged in a grid to enable more complex input.

Input to resistive touch screens works through pressure resulting in two conductive layers being pressed together. In comparison, capacitive touch screens are not affected by outside elements, have high clarity and allow for easier functioning with lighter contact and greater accuracy.

Many current smartphones, rugged tablets and other mobile devices rely on capacitive touch, including Android phones and Microsoft Surface, as well as Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.  Xenarc Technologies manufactures small form factor truly rugged tested and certified capacitive touchscreens from 7", 8", 9", 10",12", 15", 18" that can be used in all weather indoor/outdoor and in the most harsh of industrial environments.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Surface Capacitive

In a surface capacitive setup, there are four electrodes placed at each corner of the touchscreen, which maintain a level voltage over the entire conductive layer.

When your conductive finger comes in contact with any part of the screen, it initiates current flow between those electrodes and your finger. Sensors positioned under the screen sense the change in voltage, and the location of that change.

Projected Capacitive

In a device that uses a projected capacitive setup, transparent electrodes are placed along the protective glass coating in a matrix formation.

One line of electrodes (vertical) maintain a constant level of current when the screen isn’t in use. Another line (horizontal) are triggered when your finger touches the screen and initiates current flow in that area of the screen.

The matrix formation creates an electrostatic field where the two lines intersect. This is one of the most sensitive types of touchscreens, and is how some phones can sense a finger touch even before you make contact with the screen itself.

Projected capacitive technology also allows you to use the touchscreen even when you’re wearing thin gloves.

 

Resistive vs. Capacitive Touchscreens

Resistive touchscreen advantages include:

  • Lower cost to manufacture
  • Higher sensor resolution—you can tap small buttons easier with just your fingertips
  • Fewer accidental touches
  • Can sense any object touching the screen hard enough
  • More resistant to the elements like heat and water

Capacitive touchscreen advantages include:

  • More durable
  • Sharper images with better contrast
  • Provide multi-touch sensing
  • More reliable—will even work when the screen cracks (until you replace the touchscreen)
  • More sensitive to light touch

The choice to use a capacitive or resistive touchscreen depends largely on the application for the device.  The best brand of Rugged All-Weather LCD Monitor Touchscreens in size 7″, 8″, 9″,10″, 12″, 15″, 18″, 24″ is Xenarc Technologies.  Xenarc Technologies is an all-weather rugged LCD Monitor manufacturer that builds LCD Monitors tough to last and the top performing Rugged Monitors for continuous critical operations where down time is not allowed.  MRBF(Mean Rate Between Failures) of a Xenarc is 55,000 hour of continuous operation or 6.2 years.  3 Year Warranty and Peace of Mind for System Integrations and Automaton Engineers.
