Touchpad Overlays

Overlays are custom laminate, providing an environmentally resistant surface. Most overlays incorporate two distinct levels of texturing. This dual textured surface is used to define the areas on the touchpad where the GlideExtend and Right Taps features may be activated during typical user operations. The slightly coarser texture of the GlideExtend zone provides valuable tactile feedback during drag, draw, and highlight operations, signaling to the user they may now lift and reposition their finger away from the edge of the touchpad while GlideExtend is engaged. Similarly, the slightly coarser texture of the Right Taps zone alerts the user that tapping in this area will result in a secondary button input ("right click”). The Right Taps zone is also visually delineated by a change in color.

The touchpad overlay can be produced to include a customer’s logo or match custom colors upon request. A PMS color match specification and/or electronic logo artwork are required. Material specifications are available upon request.

The series of overlay options shown are available for most touchpad modules.
