The manufacturing technology employed for ZYPOS® is unique to Zytronic and offers significant benefits to traditional users of resistive, capacitive and SAW technologies. Unlike other touch technologies, the active component of ZYPOS® is embedded for protection, providing a true safety laminated pure glass-fronted construction.


Not only does this produce a highly dependable, low-maintenance and durable system, it also offers unrivalled protection against a wide range of physical, mechanical and chemical abuse, providing the cost effective solution for the most demanding of applications such as POS, gaming and In-vehicle equipment.

Summary of Benefits:

  • Laminated safety glass fronted construction.
  • Excellent readability – light transmission of up to 91% through a standard sensor.
  • Accuracy – < ~1mm on 10.4” to 17.1” sized units.
  • Response time – < 20ms.
  • Stability – no drift, therefore no recalibration is required.
  • Pointing device – works with gloved and ungloved finger.
  • Environments – functionality is unaffected by surface contaminants.
  • Resistance to contamination – unaffected by harsh cleaning fluids and other noxious substances.
  • Operating temperature – ranges from –20ºC to > +60ºC.
  • Flying tail and separate controller for ease of installation.
  • Supports serial RS232 or USBv1.1, compatible with USBv2.0.
  • Output protocol available to allow users to customise own drivers.
  • The ideal solution for all large format touch screen applications.

Zytronic’s ZYTOUCH® and ZYPOS® touch sensors offer a range of benefits not available in any other single touch sensor technology.

Important Note: These benefits are based on current developments, and best knowledge. They are subject to review and therefore may change without notice.
