1938L 19-inch Open-Frame Touchmonitor

The 1938L open-frame touchmonitor delivers a cost-effective touch solution for OEMs and systems integrators, and complements the expanded family of Elo touch solutions for gaming and amusement, retail self-service and kiosk applications. This compact touchmonitor is "designed for touch," with proven expertise and reliability built-in, not added as an afterthought by altering an existing monitor.

Like all Elo open-frame touchmonitors, the specifications and tooling are controlled to ensure a long product life, which is important in maintaining continuity for all phases of project rollouts and servicing. The 1938L features an injection-molded bezel with a virtually invisible water-resistant seal, thus making it a good choice to withstand the rigors of public use. Narrow borders, black anodized bezel hardware, multiple mounting options, and dual serial/USB touch interface add to the touchmonitor's flexibility. Worldwide agency approvals cover the entire monitor that is developed, built and supported by Elo TouchSystems, a true single-source supplier.

The 1938L is available with a choice of IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave and SecureTouch surface acoustic wave touch technologies. (SecureTouch monitors use a 3 mm chemically strengthened glass touch sensor.) The comprehensive range of features includes analog and digital interfaces, multi-lingual on-screen display (OSD), mounting VESA standard, mounting brackets, cabled remote on-screen display (OSD), and worldwide compliance.
