A D Metro

Company Profile

A D Metro designs, manufactures and sells touch screen sensors, controllers and complete touch solutions. A D Metro services OEMs, System Integrators and Value Added Resellers around the globe. Established in 1988 A D Metro is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada. AD Metro specializes in small volume and customized projects. with reasonable NRE/Tooling fees to get your device to market quicker and with less risk. Advancing the company’s commitment to produce leading edge touch technology, A D Metro’s flagship product is its patented ULTRA technology, the industry’s first pressure activated flexible glass touch sensor. This revolutionary enhancement to resistive-type sensors delivers the most durable, usable and cost effective touch sensor available on the market today. To meet the needs of specialized touch requirements A D Metro prides itself in developing innovative custom solutions for extreme environments such as military, industrial or vandal prone environments. Our goal is to become a leading authority in delivering touch based solutions to customers around the world.


  • Touchscreen Sensors A D Metro offers a wide range of other sensor technologies to meet whatever is best for your particular application. ULTRA -------- Our flagship product, for a description of ULTRA please see below. 4/5/8-wire Resistive ------------------------ Not all applications require the durability of ULTRA. A D Metro offers a complete line of standard 4, 8 and 5-wire sensors. These sensors are of the highest quality and are often the most cost effective alternative. We offer customized design to meet any application from the smallest handheld to the most complex resistive sensor. Projective Capacitive ------------------------- Projected Capacitive sensors are the popular choice when multi-touch input is needed. With crystal clear optics, durable configurations and sizes all the way through 32"” A D Metro’'s P-Cap offering is suitable for a host of applications. A D Metro sensors are available with both discrete controllers for easier integration, as well as chip on flex USB/I2C interfaces. Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) ----------------------------------- A D Metro has recently introduced a line of Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) touch screens to the available technologies we offer. SAW offers an excellent alternative for many touch applications requiring an accurate light touch, excellent optical characteristics all in a very durable and reliably package. Typical applications are kiosks, ticket machines, light industrial and gaming. Surface Capacitive ---------------------- Capacitive sensors are often the preferred solution for touch applications that require a durable sensors with good optics, light touch and a proven technology. A D Metro’s engineering design and high quality manufacturing ensure a superior and cost effective sensor for those applications that have traditionally used capacitive technology.

  • ULTRA Glass/Film/Glass Resistive Touch Sensor ULTRA is A D Metro’'s line of resistive touch sensors with a flexible glass touch surface. Improved life cycle and obvious scratch resistance, glass fronted resistive sensors offer a multitude of benefits over regular PET film sensors. Why buy a regular resistive touch sensor when you can have the benefits of ULTRA? Our patented thin glass lamination process was developed specifically for the flexible touch membranes required in a resistive sensor. While others attempt to duplicate our product, none have been able to replicate our results for reliability and functionality . AD Metro has patented the ULTRA enhanced touch sensor, the only tested and proven Glass/Film/Glass (G/F/G) resistive touch screen on the market.
