Displays Designed to be used in these

extremely dusty and harsh environments, the check-in kiosks are fully sealed and IP66 rated. The internal temperatures are maintained by a ventilation system that integrates positive pressure filtration with a compact heat exchange unit. The electronic peripherals were sourced from specialist distributor JEA Technologies, of Melbourne. “We collaborate closely with our

customers to fully understand their needs from both technical and commercial perspectives, and we then recommend optimum solutions,” says George Grochowski, managing director, JEA Technologies. “For this project, the solution had to deliver faultless performance in the toughest of environments. After careful consideration, we recommended Zytronic’s projected capacitive touch technology.” JEA Technologies has been partnering

with Zytronic as its distributor in Australia and New Zealand for over 12 years. With numerous projects successfully completed, the two companies have developed a strong partnership. Zytronic’s business is geared around the provision of durable, reliable and customisable touch technology. Its award-winning projected capacitive technology (PCT and MPCT) offers the ultimate touch solution for challenging environments such as Boral’s quarry application. Working closely with JEA Technologies,

Zytronic designed a bespoke printed glass 19” ZyBrid touch sensor that incorporates UV and IR filters to aid thermal management of the kiosk. A 6mm thick, thermally toughened glass was selected, which ensures optimum impact and scratch resistance and protects the underlying display. In addition, the specified glass incorporated an anti-glare etched finish to reduce reflections in the bright Australian sunshine. With its experience and flexibility

regarding low-volume custom solutions, Zytronic was the natural choice for this project. After the installation and commissioning of the ruggedised kiosks, Boral has seen its quarry truck check-in times drop by 20 to 30 minutes. TouchMate managing director, David Ellsworth adds: “The reliable and robust nature of Zytronic’s touch sensors has once again proven their worth for our business. There are now hundreds of these quarry check-in kiosks deployed in some pretty extreme Australian conditions and, to this date, we have not seen a single field failure with the ZyBrid touchscreens.”

customised displays options for ‘coVid-aware’ user interface designs

their own components when off-the-shelf solutions cannot meet requirements, for example in creating new COVID-aware touchless user interfaces. Commenting on the enhanced service,


David Pearson, technical Director of Anglia, said, “We are seeing a dramatic increase in the use of displays for both consumer and industrial electronics and due to the current COVID-19 situation, we’re predicting further major change in how displays are integrated into designs. Touch screens, which were previously a preferred user interface technology, are now seen as a potential infection vector. Instruments need to be redesigned with a touchless interface such as voice or gesture control or using two-way communication from a control device which may be a cell phone, a tablet or dedicated unit allocated to the user.” Pearson continues, “At Anglia, we’ve been

working increasingly on medical and other designs following the government’s call to action, and we’ve seen how user interface design needs to change in this field. Whereas teams of operators until now have been happy working close to each other and sharing touchscreens when setting up and using machinery in the future that will become much more of an issue. For instance, medical instruments need to be designed to be operated at a distance from the patient wherever possible.” Anglia has many display options available, from custom symbols to special text fonts

nglia Components’ enhanced range of customised display options empowers designers with the flexibility to create

among other features. These customised displays can be tailored to individual domains or applications, allowing them to meet the demands of specific industries such as high- performance control panels that can be embedded into equipment and machines. All manufacturers have been fully audited

using Anglia’s rigorous selection processes, ensuring a quality customised display delivered by trusted suppliers. Customisation options include addition of custom icons, characters or fonts, wide temperature range options, addition of capacitive or resistive touch panels, optical bonded glass, negative mode operation and special viewing angles. Anglia can enhance display functionality with a range of built in driver IC and connector options for data, touch screen and backlight. A range of display types are available including colour and mono TFT, graphic, character, VATN, OLED, AMOLED and Electronic Paper. Designers can equip their customised displays with LED backlights in white or other colours. The custom displays offered through Anglia

Inception are suitable for a wide range of applications including wearables, medical, industrial or consumer devices. The Anglia Inception brochure gives an overview of its custom product capability. In addition to displays it covers keypads, custom battery packs, custom transformers and custom heatsinks amongst many others. The Inception service is delivered in the context of Anglia’s management systems, which are certified to world-class standards including ISO 9001, AS9120, ISO 14001 and ADS SC21.
