FUJITSU launches Touch Panels with Integrated Embossed Switches

Reduce part count and assembly time, whilst increasing protection against dust and liquid ingress

Fujitsu Components Europe

Hoofddorp, January 30, 2018

FUJITSU Components Europe has extended its range of custom-design touch panels by adding the option to integrate embossed switches for HMI applications. The company’s new FID-1320 series of four-wire resistive touch panels enables embossed switches to be formed in the cover film. These provide tactile click feel for the user, similar to the experience of mechanical switches.

A single panel replaces all the buttons and the touch panel of your system HMI without losing the button click feeling.

Touch panel embossed switches can be operated with fingers or gloves, it is not affected by liquid droplets and operates silently. The dust- and waterproof construction ensures reliable operation in challenging environments such as food industry, medical or industrial production environments. It is also suitable for use as operation panels for factory automation equipment.

Touch Panel Solutions

Fujitsu’s dual touch control board allows gesture inputs such as Zoom and Rotation. Throughout Fujitsu’s more than 20-year history of manufacturing resistive touch panels, Fujitsu has developed a variety of solutions such as anti-smudge, anti-newton ring, anti-glare. Fujitsu offers the right solution for nearly every application. As well as improving usability and appearance, adding embossed switches is also highly cost efficient, since it saves the time and cost of sourcing and assembling switches into the touch screen equipment. Part qualification is much easier as no additional parts will be involved.
