Ask the Touchscreen Experts: Our most frequently asked questions, answered

The touch experts at UICO often get asked a variety of questions regarding touch performance when in the process of working with customers to provide touchscreens for demanding environments. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions:

Q: How are you able to achieve touch performance in wet conditions and when the user wears gloves?

A: The exceptional duraTouch product touch performance is achieved by a combination of five things:

  • the electrical design of the touch controller circuit

  • mechanical sensor design

  • selection of the best microcontroller for the analog front-end functionality

  • specialized touch algorithms, and

  • customized touch tuning.

Additionally, we will guide you in integrating the touch module into your system, to optimize the touch performance for your particular use case and environment as needed.

Q: How thick can the cover glass be and still detect touch?

A: The standard product line supports up to 4mm thick cover glass while still maintaining glove performance, and can support up to 10mm while wearing thin gloves or dry touch.

Q: Can your touchscreen work with a stylus?

A: Yes, our new DuraTouch –MT product line supports touch with a stylus.

Q: Does your touchscreen work underwater?

A: No, PCAP touch will not work underwater but we can ensure that if the touchscreen is submerged, false touches do not trigger.

Q: Does your touchscreen work with wet gloves?

A: Yes it does. By controlling the firmware we can adjust to a combination of water and gloves at the same time, tuned for your performance.

Q: What is the operational temperature range of your touchscreens?

A: The duraTouch line of touchscreens is rated for -40 - +85°C. The complete display-touch module

is often limited by the display’s operating temperature range which is typically narrower.
