Touch Switch 

feature_wtouch_1.gif(11473 byte)
Transparent Touch Switch
on VFD module

Using our bright and easy-to-read VFD, the touch switch and built-in controller offers stable operation.
Switch status data can be read from the module both manually and automatically.

 

 


Easy to use for a variety of applications.
"Compatible with thick gloves / water spillage"

feature_globe.jpg(28089 byte)
Reliable operation with gloves and water

We employ know-how from VFD production to achieve Sensitive and Stable touch operation. Operators can wear vaious gloves, and the touch panel can work through a glass front covering.

"Mutual capacitive" models can be made even more robust against water drops or even streams by appropriate fail-safe programming at the host controller.

 

 

Gloves and acrylic overlay

Water spill operation

 

Glass made
"Clear, Clean
and Long Lasting"

feature_etouch_g2.jpg(35664 byte)

A glass substrate is implemented and results in excellent glass appearance and durability.
The glass also has chemical resistance and is easy to clean.

 

 


Touch sensor Controller is included.
"Easy to Control"

feature_use_touch.gif(18723 byte)

The on-board touch sensor controller makes the module easy to control. It's possible to send messages to the host when touch switches are operated.
The "Program Macro" processor is also able to read the touch switches.

feature_system_1.gif(41480 byte)
Macro compiler is under development. Please contact sales office for Japanese version.


The GU-D series has a Program Micro Processor. Touch operations, I/O ports and the serial port can be read in to control the display's message. The program macro function allows for stand alone operation of the display module.

 


Repeat stored command "Macro"
h_io.gif(297 byte)

feature_soft_4.gif(6512 byte)
Until a command is received
Repeat stored command

A sequence of commands are stored in the display and repeatedly executed. For example, if a set of commands to move the cursor and display a message are stored in the display, then sending the "start macro" command will make the display repeat the message.
Automatic program start at power-on can also be set. This may be used during display initialization, the idle screen or a demonstration screen.
