Touch technology innovator Zytronic is expanding its footprint in North America with touchscreen design and integration specialist AGDisplays. The company serves a wide range of applications with a strong focus on industrial, military, medical, and marine.
Over the last 10 years, AGDisplays has grown its relationship with Zytronic from being a touch sensor supplier to a valued partner – where both companies can focus their experience and services to best serve the end customer. Together, they work directly with the customer during the development stages of a new product and can, therefore, offer the detailed service and support needed to bring a customer’s vision to fruition.
Typically, AGDisplays uses Zytronic projected capacitive technology (PCT™ and MPCT™) in situations where longevity and/or ruggedization and performance are needed. In industrial environments especially, due to stringent ball drop or impact requirements, conventional Projected Capacitive (PCAP) sensors will not stand up to longer-term usage. So much so that Mike Faryna, Vice President, AGDisplays says that in his 20 years of experience working in the industry he has not seen another PCAP sensor work as flawlessly when utilizing thick coverglass.
Zytronic’s ability to design a sensor to work around the customer’s mechanical requirements makes it easier for AGDisplays to develop a solution instead of trying to work with an off-the-shelf sensor. The low minimum order quantities (MOQs), quick sample lead time, and ability to support its sensors and controllers over a long period, reduce potential supply chain issues and alleviate potential problems for AGDisplays and the customer down the road.
“Working in tandem with Zytronic allows us to serve the customer with high-bright, open- or closed-frame designs, and touchscreen integration services so we can focus on offering the customer a turnkey solution that meets all of their needs,” says Faryna. “With Zytronic’s experience and expertise on the sensor portion, and our team’s display experience, we can offer the customer a one-stop shop regarding their display assembly needs.”
Another advantage of working with Zytronic is that, as a display integrator, developers at AGDisplays appreciate the Zyconfig software, which allows the sensor and controller to be tested once it is integrated with the LCD. The company utilize this software as a stage in its final inspection, to assure that every unit is functioning as it should prior to shipping to customers.
AGDisplays often recommends ink-screened perimeters on the coverglass to allow the customer to use the PCAP as their finished aesthetics and eliminate the need for a bezel or overall on the face of their unit. Zytronic’s ability to accommodate a multitude of surface finishes, also allows AGDisplays to offer its customers the surface finish they desire specifically for their application - for example, anti-reflective, mirrored and anti-microbial surfaces are available.
“Whether we are developing a rugged solution and looking for a PCAP that will function in harsh environments or looking to design a solution that will have superior longevity, we prefer to design with a Zytronic touch sensor,” adds Faryna. “Our relationship has grown organically over the years by seeing the value in each other’s quality and service along with our cohesive business approach.”
