From touch sensor to touch panel – made by HUMMEL

By: Electrotechnology Division
Industrial touch systems – from a standard system to a high end solution

At the Hannover trade show HUMMEL will be showing a broad range of PCT touch technology. HUMMEL’s touch systems appeal to industrial users who can choose from a wide array of high-quality products and services.

HUMMEL produces PCT touch panels from 12" to 22" in the widest range of designs, stretching from the standard system to the high-end solution.

Hummel’s product segment “touch” features a high degree of vertical production integration, as already seen in the electronics and electrical engineering business areas. All the products are developed and produced in-house.

Typical areas of application in industry include, amongst others, industrial automation, process control and the visualisation of operational data. HUMMEL touch systems are also used in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. These industries have specific requirements in terms of robustness, hygiene and cleanliness.

Multitouch – robust – hygienic  - brilliant

Multi touch capable touch panels with consistently accurate glass fronts have a scratch- and impact-resistant user interface. The optical bonded glass front – available on request – combined with the LED backlit display provide a quality of resolution that has not been seen before.  The integrated PCT technology also ensures that the touch panels can be constructed in such a way that they can be operated while wearing any sort of gloves and navigated using gestures. An impact resistance of IK08 is achieved even with the thinnest glass, without restricting the ease of operation.

Leak resistance ratings of IP67/IP69K are achieved using the tested HUMMEL cable connectors and socket connectors. The touch panels can therefore be cleaned with high-pressure cleaners. UL and EX certifications are also available on request.

The housings are attached using VESA-standard bores as standard and can be delivered with a support arm system or stand.
