Normally calibration need only be done when the touch drivers are initially installed. You should never have to recalibrate Elo touchscreens unless the monitor's video size and position controls have been adjusted. Calibration procedure

There is no standard way of measuring MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) for a touchscreen, but AccuTouch touchscreens have been tested to more than 35 million touches in one spot with a stylus similar to a finger, and IntelliTouch touchscreens have been tested to more than 50 million touches. Touchscreen warranties vary by touch technology. The touchscreen controller MTBFs are typically 2-4 times longer than that of the display.

Dirt and fingerprints do not affect the operation of a properly sealed touch display. Use bright, patterned background colors to minimize the visual effects of dirt and fingerprints. See Touchscreen Application Tips for more information.

Any standard glass cleaner can be used to clean the touchscreen. Always spray the glass cleaner on the cloth or towel and then clean the touchscreen. Glass cleaner sprayed directly on the monitor could possibly leak inside a non-sealed unit and cause damage.
