Zytronic’s Japanese partner and touch display integration specialist, DISIGN, recently developed its double-sided LCD display unit into an interactive touchscreen module designed for Japanese drive-thru quick-service restaurants, according to a company press release.
Single-sided versions for indoor self-service ordering have also been deployed. The units feature Zytronic’s all-weather ZyBrid 15.6-inch multitouch sensors mounted in contact with the display’s surface in conjunction with ZXY500 projected capacitive controllers.
“The infoverre product has been successfully deployed in public buildings, railway stations and retail outlets for information signage but making them interactive opens up a whole new world of self-service possibilities,” Yan Takatani, president of DISIGN, said in the release. “Our knowledge of attaching the protective glass directly onto the display was a perfect match for using Zytronic’s highly reliable glass touch sensors.”
As the QSR kiosks used in this project are installed in public areas, each touch sensor is made from 4 millimeter thermally toughened glass. They also have an anti glare etched surface that enables them to be viewed in direct sunlight. This enables DISIGN to reduce the backlight brightness of the LCD and thereby reduce the power consumption of the QSR kiosk. Based in Japan, DISIGN was founded in 2006.
