Industrial LCD Touch Screen Monitor Solutions

Faytech North America industrial LCD touch screen monitor solutions

Touchscreen display technology is really a brilliantly practical innovation for industry. It can be used to achieve any number of specialized requirements and environmental resistances but there are many various sorts of touch screens and varying costs along with the variations in that technology.

What kind of touch-screen is better fitted to your industries’ demands on industrial touch screen monitors and rugged monitors?

Resistive and capacitive industrial touch monitor systems

Two of the most common techniques of managing industrial LCD monitor touch technology are resistive and capacitive touchscreens. Resistive touchscreens work by having various layers. Two conductive layers are separated by an air gap or microdots so by touching the panel, the 2 conductive tiers are compressed together. Those conductive panels are made up of stripes, one sheet horizontal, and the other layer vertical creating a grid which can easily be used to identify touches.

Capacitive touchscreen displays work in numerous various ways. The most basic form of capacitive technology is surface capacitance, where glass is covered in a conductive layer. When such a layer is contacted by another conductor (such as the human body) the electrostatic field on the surface of the screen is distorted. This can then be processed to find the location of any touches.

Projected capacitance is achieved by imprinted the conductive layer with an x y grid. Projected capacitance touch screens enjoy the advantage of being able to function through defensive films such as monitor guards, or glass screens. This can provide seriously strong solutions able to be weather resistant, damage resistant and simple to clean up. Also, because there are no moving parts in capacitive touch screens, they also can be tougher than resistive screens.

There are of course different methods of design for each kind of touchscreen making use of different amounts of levels. Usually three layer designs are the thinnest and five layer designs are made tougher with protective layers. Frequently, five layered designs can be made up specifically for an application, which is especially important for countless industrial environments where resistances from heat, nasty chemicals, extreme pressures or knocks and abrasion would be required.

What factors into the cost of industrial touch screen monitor technology?

Having a very clear understanding of the technology involved an application it is necessary in order to produce extremely customized touchscreen technology solutions, which can be remarkably sturdy and efficient. In some cases touchscreens can even be cheaper than the cost of multiple interface equipment since they’re significantly easier to protect provided by the environment. There are lots of companies who provide bespoke touchscreen solutions and it could be very advantageous for a large number of industrial applications.

Before deciding which technology meets your requirements, do a thorough analysis of your business application needs. If you need the help of industry experts who can guide you about the advantages and disadvantages of each technology, then simply contact us and we would be happy to explain to you the pros and cons of each touch display.

What sort of work environment will you touch screen industrial monitor be used in?

One thing to consider before your purchase is the possibility of contamination since the finger usually operates the monitors. For this reason, manufacturers also provide a stylus along with the monitors. You may prefer to operate the monitors using gloves or a stylus. Ranging from dust-free clean rooms or labs to offices to warehouses to food-processing centers to dusty or grimey factory floors… Or, from portable usage to complex computer stations, we offer a broad range of applications for our industrial LCD touch monitors.

Touch screen monitor industrial considerations for ease of use

The only downside of the LCD touch screen is the ergonomic problem involved with the stress on the human fingers when a touch screen is used frequently in a short period of time. This issue can be reduced through the use of a stylus pen, but this solution is not the most realistic for touch screen use with ATMs or kiosks.
