The 8-wire Resistive touch screen is the preferred solution for applications where accuracy is crucial and recalibration is unacceptable. Similar in construction to 4-wire resistive technology, each edge provides one more sensing line as a stable voltage gradient for the touch screen controller. The additional 4 lines enable the controller to automatically correct for drift resulting from harsh environments and extended use.
Dawar offers 8-wire touch screens in both FG (Film-on-Glass) and PL (Film-Film-Glass) constructions. We have a full range of standard product up to 24” and can also provide full custom solutions to meet your specific application requirements.
Our 8-wire Resistive touch screens can be bonded to a full sheet of polyester or polycarbonate overlay. This graphic overlay could also be the graphic overlay of a membrane switch layer. This design eliminates the need for clumsy perimeter gaskets or thick bezel cutouts. It provides a washable front surface and extra durability for the touch screen in harsh environments. A full ESD shield of ITO coating or a perimeter conductive ink or foil shield layer can also be added to prevent damage to the membrane switch layer.
