iTouch Touchscreen Technology
IntelliTouch SAW touchscreen technology from Elo Touch Solutions has been a reliable and proven technology for over 20 years. iTouch SAW touchscreen technology delivers robust performance comparable to the original IntelliTouch SAW, but by moving all the touch detection hardware to the backside of the touchscreen, the result is 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 or use.
AccuTouch Zero-bezel Resistive Touchscreen Technology
The new Elo Touch Solutions AccuTouch resistive zero-bezel touchscreens incorporate a major innovation that eliminates the need for the front bezel of traditional resistive display designs. This new product offers an attractive alternative to more costly touchscreens using glass or capacitive technologies and allows for complete design flexibility. The new AccuTouch resistive screens bring to life elegant touch solutions designed with style and affordability in mind. These new screens -- based on field-proven and mature AccuTouch 5-wire resistive touchscreen technology -- are available in multiple sizes as standard products or in customized configurations. Available in 7-, 12, 15 and 22-inch sizes, the new Elo Touch Solutions AccuTouch zero-bezel 5-wire resistive touchscreens deliver accurate touch responses in high-use applications, seamless integration and customization capabilities, and design aesthetics without the need for a front-bezel that can trap dust and dirt as with traditional resistive touchscreen displays.
