DMC PCAP Touchscreens with Water Detection

DMC has announced an optional water detection function for their DUS series projected capacitive touch screens. On touch screens without water detection, rain can cause malfunctions because the controller misinterprets the conductive contaminant as an input. This hinders the use in outdoor applications.

Water detection for DMC's DUS series PCAP touch screens

With the water detection function, the touch controller can identify the presence of water and rejects all inputs after exceeding a certain threshold. Once the water is wiped off, the touch is working normally again. The protection mode is being reported to the computer via USB, so that a warning can be displayed on the screen.  

On our DMC PCAP page you can watch a video demonstrating the water detection function.

If interested, please contact us, we will gladly advise you.
