3M™ Multi-Touch System PCT2000PX

The Innovative Choice for Next Generation User Interfaces


3M™ Multi-Touch Sensors

With more than 25 years of capacitive touch sensing and manufacturing expertise, 3M has developed a purpose-built multi-touch system for applications that demand high-performance multi-touch functionality for displays ranging from 15 to 32 inches. The 3M™ Multi-Touch System PCT2000PX provides customers with a leading-edge solution that resolves up to 40 simultaneous multi-touch events with palm rejection at speeds 167% faster than the 60 Hz refresh rate of many industrial displays. This innovative multi-touch solution goes beyond two-touch gestures to enable intuitive, easy-to-use natural user interfaces that can create more engaging user experiences.

3M PCT Fully-integrated System Solution

  • Touchscreen and electronics tuned for high-fidelity, full multi-touch functionality, even at the edges and corners of the display
  • Integrated standard systems offered from a single source ensures full system support and warranty
  • Robust system solution tested to work with many display technologies provides integration and design flexibility


Patented 3M Electronics

  • Reports simultaneous multi-touch events while supporting palm rejection at speeds 167% faster than the 60 Hz refresh rate of most industrial displays
  • High signal-to-noise ratio provides input flexibility including thin gloves and fingertips
  • Ultra-high definition touch for smooth draw capability and ability to distinguish multiple fingers in close proximity
  • Custom ASIC design offers a standard protocol for any size between 15 and 32 inches and facilitates seamless application development


3M PCT with Engineered Cover Glass

  • Enables leading edge industrial design solutions with a uniform narrow black border graphics design
  • No surface components or bezel requirement limits debris build up which results in increased reliability
  • Easy-to-clean, no wear surface provides operation unaffected by surface scratches
  • Smooth edge finish for improved durability and handling safety
  • Anti-stiction surface allows for “easy drag feel” for smooth touch performance
  • Anti-glare for table-top applications or strong ambient lighting environments
