EVERVISION Announces Projected Capacitive Touchpanel IPCT

New solution makes capacitive touch technology affordable for use in hitherto resistive touch panel applications in industrial and medical environments

Karlsruhe/Germany, -  EVERVISION Electronics Europe will unveil IPCT, a new capacitive touch panel product line at their electronica stand A3.307. IPCT specifically addresses industrial electronics and medical technology applications that so far used resistive touch panels and but now require capacitive touch technology. The IPCT touch panels can be manufactured very cost-effectively in small minimum order quantities with long term availability.

Technically state-of-the-art, the IPCT (Improved Projected Capacitive Touchpanel) scores high against conventional PCT solutions above all for economic reasons. It is not a consumer grade PCT, so customers don’t have to fear the drawbacks that come with a supplier’s dependency on volume production for key accounts. EVERVISION is able to offer long term availability at favourable conditions and as well realize small minimum purchases that can be manufactured to order. This is especially suitable for industrial applications. A high degree of vertical integration allows the production of IPCT touch panels with a production lot size of 300 units. IPTCs are therefore ideally suited for professional applications in small and medium sized quantity ranges.

The favourable price/performance ratio of EVERVISION’s IPCT touch panel is achieved by using raw materials and production processes that are also applied in LCD manufacturing. This is a benefit also for fully customized solutions which can be realized at feasible tool costs. Due to mechanical dimensions that are identical with the existing resistive touch panel standard, IPCT touch panels can be integrated into current projects in the course of a redesign without the need to modify the enclosure.

EVERVISION offers the IPCT in diagonals from 3.5“ to 10.2“ that are already mounted ex works on the corresponding EVERVISION TFT displays. The IPCT touch panel features a durable surface hardness of 7H, reliably detects up to five fingers and is neither sensitive to detergents nor to disinfectants. Its transparency is 85 percent. Further characteristics are an I²C interface (USB in Q1/2013) and a chip-on-flex structure.

About Projected Capacitive Touch Technology Projected capacitive touch technology allows touch recognition through a glass surface mounted on top of the display. Its resistance to scratches, moisture and impurities makes it an ideal solution also for outdoor applications. The IPCT touch panel’s glass surface allows cleansing and disinfection with almost all agents.


The wide range of possible applications with IPCT touch panels ranges from industrial HMI (Human Machine Interface) like construction machinery and agricultural vehicles to sensitive applications like access control, measurement and especially medical technology.
