Law officers and other users will often be under pressure when using the instrument, and may well be working in bad conditions. Having twelve modules in one instrument is a great asset, but also a challenge as the user interface needs to allow operators to navigate those functions quickly and easily, in the dark or in bad weather.
ARH decided that a touch interface was the best way to achieve this. Clearly the touch screen needed to be strong, as the instrument was highly likely to be dropped in use, and needed to be easily read at all light levels. Control and setup for all the above tasks are carried out on a Zytronic 9” Projected Capacitive (PCAP™) touch screen from through an intuitive graphical user interface.
Furthermore, the Zytronic touch sensor was designed with an anti-glare treated glass to reduce reflections and ensure good readability even during sunny weather.
