faytech Rugged Touchscreen Monitors

faytech rugged touchscreen display is a trend setter

When you look at the modern day computing, many operations seems virtually impossible without the use of  touch screen monitors.

This new industrial LCD touch screen monitor technology has taken over the world by storm, hence becoming an indispensable part of our digital world. Depending on the machines we use on our daily basis, be it a desktop computer, laptop, mobile or any other hand devices, touchscreen panels have been the key factor that has geared towards the revolution of cellular network technology. This has lead to the introduction of smartphones era where the majority of the people are now enjoying this advanced mobile technology, which has also poured over into industrial LCD monitor developments.

The origin of the rugged touchscreen monitor

The touchscreen technology is an invention that has come a long way over the years. It was invented by Jason Ford who is from Elo Touch Systems. In 1971, Doctor Sam Hurst who is the company founder at the same time an instructor came up with the first touch sensor. This sensor was further looked into by the university’s Research Foundation and later became a subject that geared towards milestone for the further development of touchscreen technology.

Three years later, a touch screen desktop device that almost looks like the ones we use today was developed by the same person. The only difference was that the latest technology came with a transparent surface. By the year 1977, five-wire resistive technology was invented which is now the most widely used touchscreen technology the world over.

Application areas of the faytech rugged display

Rugged monitors are used in many places. Some of these places include industrial areas, commercial and military applications. Industrial monitor technology has truly grasped the attention of the young and the old simultaneously.

There are many places where we come across these ubiquitous little devices Examples of such areas include banks, ATM, shopping mall kiosks, airports and railway stations. They are useful and yet unobtrusive; hence one can just jab the screen to order a cup of coffee or draw some money from a bank account.

The faytech rugged LCD monitor and rugged LCD displays can be used nearly anywhere

There are many uses of touch  monitors and rugged LCD monitor solutions that are commonly used in most public places.

One can use them in a car park to help play music or operate the cash register. The end uses are so many that there is a huge variety of models and sizes available that can suit one’s needs.

The different technologies behind touchscreen monitors include resistive touchscreens, capacitive systems, infrared and surface acoustic wave technology. The types of touchscreen differ in one way or another with regards to their efficiency at sensing. Some of the rugged touch screen monitor systems are also more susceptible to scratches and contaminants.

Touch monitors are very reliable and accurate devices, and it has become relatively cheap for rugged monitor manufacturers to develop them. They offer highly legible text, clear resolution; razor sharp pictures and a brightness exceeding 500 cd/m2.Hi, furthermore the models carry a lot of extra features too. The most clearly seen benefit of a touchscreen is that it behaves as an input as well as an output device.

The main pieces of hardware include; the monitor, mouse and the keyboard and these all are put together to form one single unit. This is done by using a GUI or guided user interface within the system.

The monitor is easily made to function by hand, and its five wire touch sensitive panel is hardly affected by wetness or dirt. In fact, the screen can be pressed at least 3 million times on any part of the screen without losing any speed of reaction.

There are two kinds of touch screens these are; the one that comes integral with the system and secondly, the add-on. Both of them are quite affordable and offer excellent navigability to the user.

In simple words, the touch sensor is an important part of the hardware which is added on to the monitor. It is precisely a thin piece of transparent laminated sheet stuck onto the monitor and securely wired to the computer system. Once the touchscreen is plugged in, and the appropriate software drivers are run it begins to operate normally.

The benefits

Touch screen monitors are perfect for most production lines or other manufacturing environments. These areas are often very dirty or dusty and using a standard keyboard and mouse may not be suitable.

The screen is usually able to withstand the dirt and damp that always affect other hardware. They are made to be incredibly durable, which is a beneficial feature as they are often susceptible to heavy handling. These types of computers work by incorporating a thin membrane in front of the glass screen. This membrane has a see-through metallic covering. When this metallic surface is touched by an individual, it stops the electrical circuit which in turn, engages the internal software which can locate the position of the touch on the monitor.

For less heavy industry, where damage is less likely, resistive touch screens are ideal as although these can be easily scratched since they are highly reactive pieces of equipment.

For heavier industries, capacitive touchscreen are more suitable because the reactive materials that are inside the glass screen remain relatively unaffected by surface scratches. They retain a fully functional sensitivity.

There are alternative touch  technologies such as infra red, but these are rarely used where additional sensitivity or better durability is necessary. Due to technological advances and further applications of touch technology, touch monitors are now more affordable and productive than ever.

Other advantages

Ease of use: Touch screens have an interactive interface that enables clients to operate without adequate skills. Employees can also perform multiple tasks hence saving a lot of time, energy, and money.

Speed: The active time for users is less compared to other conventional types of input methods such as mouse and keyboard. This is because the screen allows users to access applications directly.

Device Size: The overall size of the workstation can be reduced by combining data input devices with the monitor. Using large touch screen monitor can let one set up computer systems in areas where there is minimal space.

Assistive technology: Rugged touch screens assists users with physical problems that might need them to apply other input methods, such as mouse and keyboard to operate efficiently.
