It is similar with the one on your smartphone, provides better experiences than a resistive screen


C) external power supply

Getting power from the mainboard may interfere its working and lead to a print failure. Even I didn’t meet the case in my test, still recommend that though.

And of course, you should be looking for a screen that is in 5V voltage, unless you can bear a huge external power box.


How to get

So we are using a 7 inch touchable capacitive HDMI screen with external power supply, it even has a port for the touch feature. But we let it get power from the mainboard directly, it works perfectly on both KLP1(screen less version) and the KP3S Pro V2(both versions). And we get a protect box for it, too.
