Crystal Touch panels for outdoor and marine applications selected as winner

DALLAS— Ocular LCD, Inc., a leading manufacturer of industrial touch panels, has been selected as an ECN IMPACT Award winner for their Crystal Touch panels designed for outdoor and marine applications. Winners were announced at an ECN hosted reception at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. The 2014 ECN IMPACT Awards recognize products and services that had the greatest impact on the electronic components industry the previous year. Ocular received the award for Crystal Touch panels specially designed for outdoor and marine use. Crystal Touch projected capacitive touch panels provide a robust touch solution with increased optical clarity, durability and scratch resistance. Crystal Touch panels that are customized specifically to perform in outdoor and marine applications are non-birefringent and immune to false touches caused by water spray and droplets. Overcoming challenges caused by sunlight and water makes Crystal Touch panels for outdoor and marine applications unique and these panels have had a significant impact on the electronic components industry.

"Winning an ECN IMPACT Award is truly an honor," said Shahna Kothapally, vice president of engineering at Ocular. "We would like to thank ECN; this award shows true recognition of all the hard work that went into designing custom touch panels for outdoor and marine applications. We are proud to be alongside other industry leaders that also won ECN IMPACT Awards in other categories."

A complete list of ECN IMPACT Award winners will be published in the May 15 issue of ECN magazine.
