    Help: Which touchscreen is capacitive?

    Hi guys first time poster but I hang on another board and just discovered this a little while ago.

    I work on touchscreens at my work and we use resistive since it isn't a real need for clarity and prevention of current surges.

    I have read about xenarc lilliput and so on looking to find a spec sheet and find out if they are capacitive. Unlike other new guys to forums I did do a search and can't get a definitive answer. I am really particular about my touchscreen i will be using and price won't be an option if it means i won't have to deal with bull$%#^.

    I appreciate the help and anything I can do to help any of you let me know.

    From what I have seen, all of the touch screens on Lilli's, Super's, Xenarc's, etc. al use 4 wire resistive panels. Capacitive panels and controlllers are more expensive.

    Im pretty sure that everything uses 4 wire resistive except xenarc's which use 5 wire resistive.

    do you guys notice after time and not mounting as well as it should be they short out?

    i know it happens in the industrial world which is why we switched to capacitive, but i guess 5 wire isnt bad lot less current fluctuation.

    one more thing who offers an HD touchscreen? cause the car puter im building comes with hd tuner so just curious

    Computer with HD tuner will still output VGA and thats what the monitors take. Won't the TV signal be embedded in the OS?
    Carputer Progress:
    [!!'-------] 25%
    have to fabricate screen mount

    have to start over, lilliput died, 1st laptop broke, have to sell the 2nd one. damn

    getting a cpacitive touch screen in 7" 15:9 aspect is damn near impossible. 3M would make me one but i needed to order a shed load! Moisture/humidity can also be a problem fromwhat i hear with capacitive but i would still liek to switch to them.

    cpacitive work via a capcitive method and require a finger (slightly damp not dry - oo er missus - as they rely on conduction) or a special stylus and resisitive use a change in resistance when the overlay is pressed.

    some info here: http://www.waspswitches.co.uk/

    and on the 3m website.
