  • 12.1" 5-Wire Resistive Touch Screen

These Touch Screens are designed for extreme and high-use environments and features superior durability, resolution, accuracy and positioning speed. Resistive touchscreens deliver cost-effective, consistent and durable performance in environments where equipment must stand up to contaminants and liquids, such as in restaurants, factories, and hospitals.

Custom design and sizes between 5.7 to 21.3 inch are available upon request


Five-wire resistive is the most accurate and reliable touchscreen technology. 5-Wire Resistive touch technology consists of a glass or acrylic panel that is coated with electrically conductive and resistive layers. The thin layers are separated by invisible separator dots. When operating, an electrical current moves through the screen. When pressure is applied to the screen the layers are pressed together, causing a change in the electrical current and a touch event to be registered. 5-Wire Resistive touchscreens typically have a 3H or 4H hardness rating which means that they will resist scratching from items with pencil point hardness.


  • High touch resolution
  • Pressure sensitive, works with any stylus
  • Not affected by dirt, dust, water, or light
  • Continued operation even with a cut coversheet (as long as the ITO coating on the glass is not damaged)
  • Could be operated in the environment with -10° C ~ 60° C
  • More durable and offer a much greater lifetime and stability than 4-Wire Resistive type
  • 80% clarity
  • Resistive layers can be damaged by a sharp object
  • Glass is obviously fragile and can be easily broken with a small impact
  • More expensive than 4-Wire Resistive type
Common Applications:
  • POS terminals
  • Financial - ATM & Bill Pay Kiosks
  • Factory Automation
  • Industrial Control
  • Medical Equipment
  • Retail Kiosks
