Fujitsu Components Europe (FCE) has expanded its 7-wire resistive touch panel offering with a 17-inch (diagonal) standard product. The company now offers OEMs and VARs a line of standard 7-wire touch panels ranging in size from 8.4 inches to 17 inches and down to 3.8 inches for the 4-wire version.

The 17-inch panel is targeted for man-machine interface functions in instrumentation, process controls, intelligent kiosks and other emerging applications such as electronic voting machines. It accepts both pen and finger input, has a minimum input life of ten million operations, 80 percent minimum transparency and an operating temperature range of -5C to 60C. The 7-wire technology offers a resistance that is ten times higher than the 4-wire touch panel technology. Offering an alternative to 5-wire resistive panels, Fujitsu's 7-wire technology uses only the stable glass layer to detect input, resulting in 1.5 percent linearity over the guaranteed life of the product. Four sense lines monitor the resistance of the glass and automatically compensate for any variation caused by physical or environmental changes. Precisely controlling the micro-dot height and spacing patterns, along with an airtight panel construction, prevents Newton Ring formation and moir effects. Optional optical enhancements, including transmissivity ranging from a standard 80 percent up to 92 percent, anti-glare and anti-smudge treatments, are also available.

The 17-inch panel has outer dimensions measuring 294(H)-by-369(W)mm, its usable, active touch area measures 271(H)-by-338(W)mm. The panel features 1.8mm thick glass and weighs 516g.
