Touch Test

This feature provides more data than other testing mechanisms and is conveniently integrated into the DISPLAX Connect software.
Depending on the PC specifications and the Skin product that you have, there are some features that may not be present, namely:

• Pressure report (Feature not available in Skin Fit and Skin Dualtouch)
• Touch coordinates
• Number of touches (Skin Ultra: up to 100 touches; Skin Fit: up to 40 touches; Skin Dualtouch: up to 2 touches)
• Multiple devices input

Note that macOS will only work with a single touch due to limitations of the operating system.
To access this feature, click on the ‘Touch Test’ button, or hit the keyboard key ‘C’.

Number of touches being reported, i.e: “Touches 2 / 24”, means that 2 touches are currently being recognized, from a total of 24 touches already reported since the last “Auto Clear”
Pressure (only available in Skin Ultra): Activates or deactivates the touch pressure representation. Pressure units are dependent on the OS:

• Window’ represents pressure between 0~1024
• Linux represents pressure 0~1
• macOS pressure is not represented

When activated, the drawn touches will be cleared after about 5 seconds since the last touch recognition, clearing the Touch Test screen of all previous touches, and resetting the touch counter. If deactivated, the drawn touches will remain on the display until you touch the ‘Clear’ button
Clears the screen by deleting all the drawn lines and resets the touch counter
Closes the Touch Test application

When touching the Touch Sensor area, the first five touches will be represented with their respective identification, coordinates, and pressure if enabled (pressure is only reported in Skin Ultra).
In the Touch Test application, pressure is graphically represented with a thinner or thicker line depending on the amount of pressure applied on the touch sensor.

Touch Test version 1.13 and later accepts input from multiple devices, distinguishing device inputs with a code – the first two digits as the device ID, and the remaining digits refer to the Touch ID identification number (the number of devices input is conditional to the type of product. Skin Dualtouch can only report two devices since it is limited to report two touches).

1 – Pressure is not supported in macOS and only the mouse is recognized.
2 – If Touch Injection is disabled when using multiple devices simultaneously, one of the devices will not have touch – Touch should be enabled on all devices before you enter Touch Test.
3 – When starting Touch Test after multiple touches have been detected, possibly due to high levels of EMI noise, a warning will be displayed. (This does not apply to Skin Dualtouch which only reports up to two simultaneous touches).
