NFI touch screens are ideal for washdown environments and other applications where extreme durability is required. The construction of NFI touchscreens allows them to withstand shock and virbration environments. Common surface contaminants found in industrial environments will not effect the touch screen. NFI touch screens have the ability to detect touches made by conductive objects, such as, a finger or stylus pen. As an added benefit these touches can be detected through gloves and other potential barriers, such as, moisture, oil, gels and paints.
