ITAC Systems has announced Hand-Trak – a patented high-reliability gestural input device where the user simply moves a hand or finger over the device’s optical lens to communicate the desired direction, speed and distance of cursor movement, providing more precise control than either a sealed touchpad or joystick.
It’s designed primarily for use in public access kiosks, manufacturing and marine electronic systems, medical equipment and food processing machinery, and aeronautical and automotive electronic systems.
With no moving parts, the IP66-sealed panel-mount or panel-top Hand-Trak unit is capable if withstanding heavy usage. It is vibration resistant and protected within glass-reinforced polycarbonate housing. Hand-Trak can be permanently or temporarily mounted, or just rested on a panel, and used at any angle. The device is suitable for use indoors or outdoors and its internal printed circuit board has a conformal coating to provide an additional barrier to liquids, moisture and dust.
