Touchscreen with force detection at embedded world
The human-machine interface specialist, RAFI, is set to present its latest technologies at the 2019 embedded world exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany, Hall 3, Stand 541. The company's subsidiary RAFI ELTEC will be showing new applications and technologies from its EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) portfolio.
RAFI's innovations include the TwinTouch touchscreen technology, which detects not only touch but also the intensity of pressure exerted on the panel. Combined touch and force detection prevents false inputs, increases operating security, and makes additional input levels feasible. Customised development of operating systems with capacitive touch displays is another RAFI highlight.
Showcases in this segment include the Smart Pad 2.0 panel for Kuka robot systems as well as a premium-quality control panel for Schaerer coffee machines. Complementing these, RAFI also presents embedded control units. These ECUs can be used in operating solutions for various control and visualisation tasks.
This range has most recently been expanded by the Linux-based POWER-ECU control unit, which supports high-quality 3D visualisations as well as multi-touch inputs and full HD screen resolutions for displays up to 24".
