KEY BENEFITS OF OUR TOUCHSCREEN TECHNOLOGY
Self-service banking systems have incredibly high standards in terms of reliability. User expectations regarding touch screen performance have moved on significantly in recent years; most people own some form of personal touchscreen-enabled device and demand similar levels of functionality and responsiveness from touch sensors that must also operate in the harshest conditions year-round. Installing unsuitable, unreliable and unresponsive touchscreens in an expensive ATM can severely damage a financial institution’s brand reputation in the mind of a customer.
Aside from satisfying the demands of users, touch screens used in banking systems must also fulfil a wide variety of requirements to be considered suitable. In addition to factors such as vandal resistance, reliability and all-weather performance, newer criteria such as screen hygiene and secure PIN entry via the touch sensor have emerged. Zytronic’s MPCT™ and PCT™ touch screen technologies satisfy all of these needs and more.
- Our MPCT™ and PCT™ projected capacitive touch sensors enable system designers to create self-service terminals that can be used in any environment, functioning faultlessly outdoors in all weather conditions, and capable of detecting touches from gloved hands and conductive styli.
- Additional options and customisation such as privacy, IR and UV blocking filters and impact-resistant toughened glasses in almost any thickness including Anti-Glare and Anti-Reflective types, capable of withstanding almost any malicious attack.
- Touch controller ’chipsets’ can be supplied and touch detection firmware can be fully customised. This enables hardware developers to create Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant systems for applications such as encrypted touch screens incorporating secure PIN entry (‘Pin on Glass’).
- Antimicrobial glasses and coatings can be specified to inhibit the growth and spread of bacteria and other microbes. Furthermore, touchscreens can be designed for edge-to-edge, fully flat interfaces without bezels or surrounding frames, making them easy to disinfect.
