The faytech industrial monitors display technology changes everything
Touch screens are certainly not a new technology. Touch screen monitors have been around and in use since the 1970s. However, recent advances in mobile phone technology, computer tablets and PDA’ shave seen touchscreen monitors receive a renaissance in recent years. And with a burgeoning digital signage market expecting to continue to expand, touchscreens may become the norm for future monitor and signage applications.
The touch screen industrial monitor and industrial display monitors are the wave of the future
A recent report from industry analysts Nanomarkets, entitled “Touch Screens: Technologies, Materials and Markets”, suggests that touchscreen will play a key role in the digital advertising or signage market in the coming years with revenues from touchscreen displays expecting to increase by 33% by the year 2014.
Much of this increase, the report concludes, will have been generated for the demand for touchscreens in mobile and personal computing but also, the report suggests, many traditional LCD or plasma screens currently used in signage are likely to be replaced with touchscreen technology.
With innovations like the iPhone and the latest Microsoft Windows 7 operating system being very touchscreen-orientated, combined with the falling costs of the technology, we may even see conventional displays and LCDs a thing of the past.
The industrial touch screen monitor is changing how humans interface with computers
The touch screen is also far more versatile for digital signage in that it allows interactivity that is just not possible with conventional LCD monitors unless they are combined with a keyboard or other input device. But having a single flat screen that acts both as a dynamic display and input device for little additional cost is far more attractive to the digital signage market than conventional displays.
One area that touch screens may struggle to operate safely in, however, is in the digital outdoor signage market. As touch screens need to have an exposed screen, protecting the touchscreen monitor from the elements can be problematic but LCD enclosures and touchscreen enclosures do exist that should eliminate this problem.
The industrial touch screen computer is becoming more durable
In any setting that it is used, the touch screen also offers the advantage of durability. Aside from being both an input and output device, it is also something that can weather everyday wear and tear more effectively. In fact, these machines are comparably more resistant to possible causes of damage such as water and grease and they are also more electrically stable.
Touch screen monitors obviously offer the space advantage as well. With them, there is no need for complicated wiring that is usually done on industrial computers. Because of this, there is less risk of technical problems that can result from physical impact. This is especially helpful in a setting where nobody can keep an eye on the computer. A perfect example of this is a touch screen monitor in a mall. Anyone can use the device for locating certain stores they wish to go to and there is no need for someone to supervise the inquiring shoppers. That’s because the touch screen monitor is built for unattended public use.
Touch screens come with different specifications which generally differ on resolution and their ability to sense and respond to touch. All this is possible with the use of surface acoustic wave technology, infrared and other capacities. When choosing a touch screen monitor to use for your store or office, consider the volume of people who will probably be using it as well as the level of clarity and sensitivity to touch that will make the machine most useful both to you as a business owner and especially to your customers or clients.
The many uses of industrial touch monitors, industrial touch screen displays and industrial touch panels
Even for a small business owner, there’s a lot that you can do to make a difference among your target customers and prospect customers. Having an LCD touchscreen monitor in your shop is one. With this, there is a better way of managing their queries regarding what you offer, and you’ll also have a better way of giving them the information they need. You will have the advantage of technology at your fingertips, and you will be able to use it not just for your personal pleasure but also for the growth of your business. You don’t even have to worry about the cost issue as you consider getting a touchscreen. These days, these machines don’t cost a fortune and that’s because manufacturers have realized these gadgets’ importance for businessmen. In most cases, manufacturers have simply become more competitive.
Imagine the convenience you’ll be giving your clients when you have a touchscreen monitor in your store. Whether it’s a book shop, a boutique or other businesses, people can just come and use the screen to inquire about your stocks. In a book shop, for example, they can inquire about the availability of a certain book they like. They can go through the touchscreen monitor and find out about the details of such book, what it’s all about, who the author is and etc. In a boutique, people can just choose the item number perhaps and check the available sizes or if there are other such items available.
What does an industrial touch panel computer do differently?
Imagine also the amount of effort and time that you will be saving when you have a touchscreen monitor in your store. You don’t have to answer people’s queries yourself, and you don’t have to stop in the middle of sorting through your accounts receivables just to answer their questions. Especially for small businesses, the littlest amount of time saved can already mean a lot. Instead of you yourself having to go and check if there is a certain size available for a certain dress, the customer can easily run through your lists on the computer and immediately know the answer to her inquiry.
Having a touch screen desktop monitor in your store is a win-win situation for both you, as business owner, and your customer. In the end, it is your relationship that is benefited. When people don’t have to bug you about questions the computer can answer and when you don’t have to stop in the middle of a crucial task to entertain queries, you are already doing each other a favor. This favor is simply to perform your role better in the businesses equation that you have found yourself in.
Another way touch screen monitors are used is with the retail or food industry. Having a touchscreen to quickly take orders, receive payments, or view merchandise not only saves valuable desk space but provides an intuitive interface for employees and customers. Recently flat panel touchscreen monitors have replaced CRT or larger displays saving even more space.
Touchscreen monitors do have their limitations. The contrast on these monitors is not as good as their regular monitor counterpart. This is because of the various touch sensors (capacitive or resistive) that need to be included in a touch screen monitor to simulate a mouse. Another setback is the cost. Touch screen monitors generally cost quite bit more than regular monitors because of the additional built-in sensors.
Even with these minor setbacks, touch screen monitors are becoming popular with consumers. As the demand increases, the cost will go down and the technology will improve to the point where every monitor could be a touch screen.
