Zytronic’s PCT™ is key in enabling APC Technology’s ‘FT’ Touch Panel PC's to operate in the most extreme of environments


Zytronic has announced that touchscreens based on its projected capacitive technology (PCT) are in use in the FT range of rugged panel PCs from APC Technology. The South Australian company has used the moisture- and dirt-resistant properties of Zytronic’s ZyBrid® touch sensors to provide high reliability and levels of display clarity, with resistance to a wide range of contaminants in weather conditions ranging from bright sunlight to heavy rain

APC Technology’s ‘FT’ range of ruggedised panel PC’s uses the moisture and dirt-resistant properties of Zytronic’s 15.1″ touch sensor to provide high reliability and levels of display clarity, with resistance to a wide range of contaminants in weather conditions ranging from bright sunlight to heavy rain. The touch sensor can easily satisfy the strict requirements of applications in the general industrial, pharmaceutical and food processing industries. This flexibility in turn allows the ‘FT’ range to be used in a wide range of demanding environments, including production and assembly lines, hose-down areas, food production and livestock management areas.

Over 200 FT products are already deployed in challenging environments in locations which include Australia and New Zealand. Their durability not only enables use in harsh environments, it also contributes to exceptional reliability. This reduces on-going maintenance demands and increases system availability. PCT-based ZyBrid screens, with their unlimited touch life and drift-free operation that eliminates the need for re-calibration; further contribute to the FT series’ dependability.

“We chose Zytronic for a combination of outstanding product features…and by using PCT™-based screens, we can ensure that our ‘FT’ products satisfy our customers’ requirements of working well when they are wet or dirty.”
