he Elo TouchSystems 1515L and 1715L LCD desktop touchmonitors now offer multi-touch functionality and increased touch sensitivity for the demands of retail, hospitality and high-traffic commercial use. Adding PCAP technology to the 1515L and 1715L touchmonitors provides a unique, aesthetically pleasing seamless design resistant to water, impacts, scratches and other contaminants on the screen.
The Elo TouchSystems 1519L, 1919L and 2201L wide-aspect LCD desktop touchmonitors are now available with the innovative iTouch zero-bezel SAW touchscreens. These new iTouch touchmonitors offer a seamless, glass-to-edge, frameless design while maintaining the fast, accurate and stable performance comparable to conventional SAW technology.
“The PCAP and iTouch SAW touchscreens available on these touchmonitors demonstrate our commitment to providing some of the best solutions on the market for commercial applications,” stated Jim Witkowski, product manager at TE Connectivity for Elo TouchSystems products. “The seamless, smooth, frameless designs deliver the speed and performance expected from Elo TouchSystems products. We are also excited to add PCAP touch technology to our 1515L and 1715L models to increase touch response and add multi-touch capability.”
Aimed at the fast-changing retail point-of-sale (POS) and hospitality markets, the 1515L and 1715L PCAP touchmonitors provide reliable, durable operation and expand the globally trusted Elo TouchSystems touchmonitor portfolio. The 1515L and 1715L now feature a choice of four touch 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; APR (acoustic pulse recognition) touchscreens, and now multi-touch projected capacitive touchscreens.
The Elo TouchSystems extensive portfolio of wide-aspect touchmonitors including the 1519L, 1919L and 2201L is well suited for retail and hospitality applications such as POS, point-of-information (POI), point-of-service, interactive digital signage and kiosk information systems. The wide-aspect touchmonitors 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. The new iTouch touchmonitors are ideal for customers who are looking for a reliable, frameless, cost competitive touch solution.
iTouch Touchscreen Technology
TE’s IntelliTouch SAW touchscreen technology has been a reliable and proven technology for over 20 years. It delivers robust performance comparable to the original IntelliTouch SAW, but moving all the touch detection hardware to the backside of the touchscreen results in a completely flat, smooth, pure glass touch surface when integrated into a monitor. iTouch touchscreens deliver a fast, accurate and drift-free touch response whether using a finger, gloved hand or soft stylus. The easy-to-clean screen surface is resistant to water, dust and grease providing an easy to maintain monitor regardless of application.
Elo TouchSystems 0700L
Another product on display at ICE Totally Gaming was the 0700L touchmonitor having a 7-inch LCD display. This touchmonitor is typically applied as a second display, facing the customer in gaming/casino environments. It can also be installed as the main display for applications requiring a small screen, such as personal gaming screens as part of a larger interactive gaming table. The 0700L features an AccuTouch resistive touchscreen and is also available in a no-touch version.
