PCAP Touch Screen – Projected Capacitive Technology (PCAP) touchscreens are becoming increasingly popular in a wide range of industries and applications.

This advanced technology offers a number of advantages over traditional resistive and surface acoustic wave (SAW) touchscreens, making it an ideal choice for a variety of applications.  

Basics of PCAP (Projected Capacitive) Technology

PCAP touchscreens are built around a matrix of rows and columns of conductive material, typically made of indium tin oxide (ITO).

The touchscreen controller sends an electrical current through the rows of the matrix, and the columns act as sensors, measuring the capacitance of the row.

When a finger or other conductive object touches the screen, it disrupts the electrical field and causes a change in capacitance.

The touchscreen controller then uses this information to determine the location of the touch. One of the key advantages of PCAP touch technology is its ability to support multi-touch gestures, such as pinch-to-zoom and swipe.

Advantages of AMS PCAP Touch Screen Monitors

There are several advantages to using PCAP touchscreens. One of the main benefits is the high level of accuracy and precision.

  • PCAP touchscreens use a matrix of conductive material, which allows for a high degree of precision when determining the location of a touch.
  • PCAP touch screens are durable. Unlike Resistive and SAW touchscreens, which can be damaged by scratches, dust, liquids or other physical damage.
  • PCAP touchscreens are typically made of toughened glass. This makes them much more resistant to wear and tear, and thus more suitable for use in rugged or harsh environments.
  • PCAP touchscreens are also highly responsive, with fast touch recognition and minimal latency. This makes them ideal for use in applications where quick and accurate touch response is required, such as gaming or interactive kiosks.
  • PCAP touch screens also have a high level of light transmissivity, allowing for a clear and bright display. This is particularly useful for outdoor applications where visibility is important, or for applications where the touch screen is used as a primary display.

PCAP touchscreens are relatively easy to integrate with other systems and devices. They use standard interfaces and protocols, such as USB and HID, which makes it easy to connect them to a wide range of devices and systems.

Applications of PCAP Touchscreen Monitors

Retail and hospitality: 

PCAP touchscreens are used in a wide range of retail and hospitality applications, such as point-of-sale terminals, kiosks, and digital signage. They offer a high level of accuracy and durability, making them ideal for use in these environments.

Medical and healthcare: 

PCAP touchscreens are used in medical and healthcare applications. They offer a high level of accuracy and durability, making them ideal for use in these environments. They are easy to clean and maintain due to their flat bezel design.

Industrial and manufacturing:

PCAP touchscreens are used in a wide range of industrial and manufacturing applications, such as industrial control systems, machine interfaces, and process control systems.

Gaming and entertainment

PCAP touchscreens are used in a wide range of gaming and entertainment applications, such as interactive kiosks, arcade games, and digital jukeboxes.


Q. What is Multi-Touch?

Multi-touch is the capability to sense two or multiple touches, simultaneously.

Q: How many touch points does the PCAP sensor recognize?

Our PCAP (projected capacitive touch sensors) can recognize 10 discrete touch points. The connectivity is through USB-HID plug & play compatibility with all operating systems, such as the Windows family, Linux, Android, and Raspberry PI.

Q. What are the benefits of Multi-touch?

PCAP touchscreen panels with multi-touch capability take over most of the control of your keyboard and mouse. Defined gestures allow the user to perform functions such as manipulating photos, scrolling through documents, and panning across maps with intuitive gesture motions on the screen.

Q. In what types of environments do PCAP touchscreen panels work best?

  • 1. PCAP technology works best in environments where you can have direct finger-to-touch panel interaction.
  • 2. The glass/glass construction makes them immune to most chemicals and allows them to operate in extreme temperatures.
  • 3. Our ability to make PCAP touch sensors into flush mount designs that can be completely sealed makes them ideal for any application where robustness is critical.
  • 4. Their ability to be used with thin rubber gloves even allows them to be used for most medical applications.
  • 5. The glass/glass construction makes them immune to most chemicals.

Q. How durable are PCAP touchscreens?

The construction of a PCAP touchscreen panel makes it one of the most durable touch screens available. In the PCAP sensor construction, all the sensitive electronics are buried within the stack of the lamination.

Q. What types of applications demand the use of PCAP touch screens?

Since PCAP touchscreens are a more expensive option than resistive touchscreens, the customer pays more for PCAP’s value proposition.

Q. Does a PCAP touchscreen monitor need to be calibrated?

Our PCAP touchscreen panels are generally auto-calibrated at system startup. There is generally no need for manual calibration by the user.

Q. What is the value proposition of PCAP over the life of a customer’s product that makes the technology cost-effective in comparison to other low-cost touch technologies?

Our PCAP touch screen monitor solution is a rugged and reliable touch technology, which corresponds to longer life and very few on-site failures. Customers can save money over the lifetime of the product.
