What’s PCAP?

Projected Capacitive

Electrodes are aligned in a grid pattern on the sensor side of touch panel. The grid detects the touch point by sensing the change of electrical charges that occur when a finger touches the surface of the touch panel. The PCAP touch technology has the added advantage of durability because it has no degradation to the surface of the display or the performance of the touch sensor.
The PCAP touch panel has no air gap inside the touch panel unit, making it ideal for applications used in bright ambient light.
