PCAP – Projected Capacitive Touch panel


Projected Capacitive touchscreens (or PCAP touch) are coated with a transparent conductive film (such as ITO), which when touched by an object, usually the skin on your fingertip, can sense the conductive properties of that object.

Capacitive touchscreens can detect multiple points of contacts and can also be operated while wearing certain types of gloves. They are more responsive than a resistive touchscreen when it comes to gestures such as swiping and pinching.

Capacitive touchscreens can also be operated while wearing certain types of gloves.

  • Responsive to the lightest of touches
