Two of Elo TouchSystems' touch monitors are now available with projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreen technology.
The wide-screen 15- and 19-inch LCD desktop touchmonitors now offer multitouch functionality and increased touch sensitivity for the demands of retail, hospitality and high-traffic commercial use, according to a company press release. Adding the PCAP technology provides a sensitive touch response and is able to withstand repeated touches, an advantage for heavy, public usage applications, Ehsan Ayar, senior product manager, said in the release.
"The PCAP touchscreens available on these touchmonitors demonstrate our commitment to providing a variety of the best solutions on the market for commercial applications," Ayar said.
Well-suited for use with the fast-changing retail and hospitality applications such as point-of-sale (POS), point-of-information (POI), point-of-service, interactive digital signage and kiosk information systems, these touchmonitors with a wide-aspect ratio screen provide more space to display additional content on the screen and are easier to use and incorporate into a wider variety of environments than traditional desktop touchmonitors, Ayar said.
They feature a choice of five touchscreen technologies: AccuTouch five-wire resistive touchscreens, the most widely used for retail applications and proven to withstand splashing liquids, food and grease; IntelliTouch pure glass surface acoustic wave touchscreens, for outstanding optical quality preferred in dry retail and hospitality applications; iTouch pure glass surface acoustic wave for outstanding optical quality and glass-to-edge design; APR (acoustic pulse recognition) touchscreens; and now multi-touch, zero-bezel PCAP touchscreens for a glass-to-edge seamless design, Ayar said.
