Posted November 8, 2021 by futureelec

Future Electronics is featuring RAFI’s GLASSCAPE and METALSCAPE Capacitive Touch Technologies in this month’s Industry 4.0 & Industrial Automation edition of THE EDGE.

Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring next-generation touchscreens from RAFI in the latest edition of THE EDGE - Industry 4.0 & Industrial Automation.

RAFI's GLASSCAPE touchscreen platform was developed for the industrial environment and is manufactured entirely in Germany. Used in medical engineering, the food industry, mechanical engineering, and in commercial and special-purpose vehicles, GLASSCAPE benefits from supply security thanks to independent production, and features industrial-level ruggedness.

The closed glass surface of GLASSCAPE sensors prevent any penetration of dirt, liquids and other foreign matter. Industrial touchscreens are also available, adding operation with gloves, multi-touch and palm recognition and high temperature resistance.

The brushed metal finish of METALSCAPE gives HMI systems a high-class appearance and makes a real statement. The patented METALSCAPE technology enables metal to be illuminated in the simplest way possible - without cut-outs.
