About Touch Panel

The touch panel/screen was developed in the 1970s for military purposes in the U.S. And has developed into a variety of applications. It played a supporting role in the past, now has become one of the key components, and will even develop towards the direction of integrated industry. Its advantage is to provide the most direct, fast, and effective way to communicate with people and machines, eliminating the complex barriers of traditional computer operation methods, and allowing users to achieve the highest satisfaction of information used in the simplest way. Touch panels are used in a wide range of applications, including portable information, consumer electronics, and communication products: such as PDAs, tablet PCs, digital cameras, information appliances, 3G cell phones, etc.; financial or commercial applications: such as cash machines, sales systems, remote video conferencing, telephone terminal systems; industrial applications: such as factory automation control systems, central monitoring systems, workstation operating systems; public information applications: such as airport, station or shopping mall tour service, presentation, and informed inquiry, etc.

touch panel


A typical resistive touch panel consists of three layers:  top and bottom layers are coated with a transparent conductive film like ITO(Indium Tin Oxide), between the two layers are spacer dots which are usually printed on the bottom layer to prevent the two ITO layers from contacting. Resistive type can be divided into 4-wire and 5-wire according to its performance and universality. 4-wire resistive type has XY axis distributed in ITO film and ITO glass respectively, which will form a broken circuit when the ITO film is seriously scratched and cause the touch panel to be inoperable. The five-wire type is a modified version of the four-wire type touch panel, in which the entire electric field is uniformly built on the ITO Glass and the upper ITO Film is purely a conductor, so when the ITO Film is scratched, only the area cannot be used and other parts can still operate, but if the lower ITO Glass is hurt, it will still cause the Touch Panel to malfunction.


Types of Resistive TOUCH PANEL

  • Analog resistive touch panels: the 4-wire touch panel & 5-wire.

  • Matrix resistive touch panels: a digital resistive.

As a professional resistive touch screen manufacturer, MKS produces a variety of sizes of resistive touch panel that satisfies all kinds of equipment application.
