faytech Touch Screen Desktop PCs
faytech touch screen desktop computer technology will revolutionize your organization’s productivity
This is the era of touchscreen devices which respond to touch with stylus or finger. The marketplace is filling with game consoles, tablets, smart phones, touch screen PC systems, laptops, satellite navigation devices, kiosks and much more. faytech manufactures a variety of all-in-one touchscreen PC systems that are in high demand in commercial and environmental settings.
faytech manufactures one of the best touch screen desktop computers in the USA
A touchscreen desktop computer or any other touchscreen for that matter is a gadget in which the display screen and input device are one and the same. It permits the user to interact with the desktop with fingers. The touchscreen monitor of the desktop, while looking similar to an ordinary display, actually includes several layers that render it sensitive to pressure. Interaction is effected by touching words or pictures in the monitor.
Touchscreen technology designed for Windows 10
The touchscreen technology is much older than many of us would normally presume, for it has been around long before the advent of smart phones, computers and game consoles to which we associate it with. Historians point out the origin of touch technology to the music industry, way back in 1948! Then in 1965, the touch technology was put into application on screens with E.A Johnson Touchscreen, in England’s Royal Radar Establishment.
This basic version was modified to be implemented later in the touchscreens of ATMs, customer-service kiosks etc. However, the credit of developing the first widely-known and used touchscreen computer goes to the University of Illinois in 1972. An infrared touch panel was used by the students to answer questions. The multi-touch technology was introduced in 1982.
This concept was used in 1984 to control and operate computer graphics with fingers. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s, the technology continued to progress. Finally, in 2007, touchscreen technology in consumer devices was well-received. It continues to reign unchallenged to this day!

The inherent touchscreen technology of the device determines the way in which the touch event is registered. The three types of touchscreen technology used mainly include:
Resistive: The thin metallic screen here is electrically conductive. They are resistive too, to outside factors like dust and water. The touch event initiates a change in the electrical current that is sent to the controller for processing.
- Very affordable
- Dust and water-proof
- Finger or stylus can be used
- Offers only 75% clarity
- Easily damaged by sharp objects
Surface Acoustic Wave: Ultrasonic waves pass over the touch screen panel. On touching the panel, portion of the wave there is absorbed. This change in the ultrasonic wave localises and registers the touch and the information is sent to the controller for processing.
- Responds to finger or stylus
- Most advanced of all
- Damaged by dust or water
Capacitive: Here the screen is coated with electrically charged materials. On touching, a small amount of charge is drawn to the point of contact. This charge is measured by the circuits located at the corners of the panel. The information is sent to the controller for processing.
- Great clarity
- Unaffected by outside elements like dust, water etc.
- Only finger can be used
The less common touchscreen technologies used our touchscreen PC all in one systems include
Dispersive Signal Technology: The mechanical impact of touch is detected by the sensors here. Once the location is determined the data is sent to controllers for processing
- Excellent clarity
- Finger or stylus can be used
- The system is not equipped to detect a motionless finger or stylus, following the initial touch.
Acoustic Pulse Recognition: Here, there are transducers located all around the screen. They convert vibration into electrical energy and determine location.
- Great clarity
- Resistant to outside elements like water, dust etc.
- Excellent for large displays
- Unable to detect motionless finger
Infrared: There are light-emitting diodes and photodetector pairs at the edge of the screen which sense touch.
- Not damaged by dust or water
- Very sensitive- even gloved finger-touch is detected, particularly relevant in health industry
- Either finger or stylus can be used
- High clarity
- Highly durable
- Dust and dirt may trigger touch even when there is no actual touch
- These may fall on the display
Optical Imaging: The screen has image sensors along the edge, which pickup infrared lights on the opposite side.
- Works well for large displays
- Display might not be bright
Here are the various ways to use a touchscreen PC computer controls
- Single touch or tap
- Double-tap – to zoom in, for selection etc.
- Touch and hold
- Swipe – to scroll in a certain direction or change pages
- Drag – to pull objects to a different location
- Pinch – to zoom out
Why use a faytech touchscreen desktop computer?
Photoshop and such digital art programs are rampantly used now. Thanks to industrial computers, you no longer require a separate tablet to sketch images. You can input the image into the screen directly. In the long run, this is economically advantageous. This technology enables writing notes on presentations. This is particularly useful when you need to remember information. You can transform writing into digital form with recognition software. It enables image adjustments with zoom in or out, drag and resize. Nearly everyone is an expert in using a touchscreen as it is intuitive.
Advantages of touchscreen desktop computers
- Not overly expensive
- Supports handwriting
- Multi-touch to zoom in or out, drag files, etc
How touchscreen desktop PC computers help business
Though marketed mainly targeting multimedia centers and private consumers, touchscreen desktop computers have an undeniable and unchallengeable place in the office. Here’s why:
- Easy to use
- Overall size of the device can be minimized
- Assistive – It is very useful and helpful to those with arthritis or other physical challenges, especially when paired with a stylus
- Affordable now
- Durable and easy to clean
Touch technology is an integral part of our present. Undoubtedly, it is going to be part of our future too. Needless to say, touchscreen desktop computers have become a way of life. The verdict is whether it is business or personal, touchscreen desktop computers are of immense help.
