Carpark terminals to use robust PCT technology
Zytronic, is supplying SureSpot with vandal resistant, thermally managed Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT) touch screens to enable innovative parking terminals that improve the customer experience in unmanned car parks. The SureSpot Park in Peace terminal uses Zytronic’s ZYBRID PCT touch sensors to create an effective touchscreen solution which makes finding and paying for parking easier and more intuitive.
The 17" touchscreen is combined with a built-in QR Code Reader for scanning reservation codes. Users pre-book parking spaces using the SureSpot App or alternatively pay using the terminal itself. The Park in Peace then prints all necessary tickets and provides the user with directions to take them to their chosen spot.
To help control the internal temperature of the unit and protect the display, the ZYBRID touch sensors have an integrated IR-blocking film on the rear face, reducing to the transmission of heat energy from sunlight and reducing the need for additional cooling. Furthermore, the Park in Peace touch screens are manufactured with Zytronic’s 4mm vandal resistant, thermally toughened anti-glare glass, offering robust and durable protection against accidental or malicious damage encountered in a heavy-use, unsupervised public application and optimal display visibility in outdoor environments.
Ian Crosby, Sales & Marketing Director, Zytronic, commented: “We are delighted SureSpot selected Zytronic to provide touch screen technology for their innovative entrance terminal. Our custom PCT touch sensors provide a rugged, hard wearing and reliable frontage for applications in nearly any operating environment and will ensure that these terminals provide a dependable and intuitive method of finding and paying for parking.”
