Touchscreen Technology Choices

Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR)

Acoustic Pulse RecognitionAPR combines the ultimate in optical qualities, durability, and stability, with excellent dragging properties. By combining stylus, glove, bare finger and fingernail activation, with low-cost advantages, APR is well-suited for many diverse applications including kiosk, point-of-sale and medical instrumentation. In addition, its pure-glass surface is resistant to scratches, water and other contaminants on the screen, and can be scaled from 2.5-inch to 42-inch displays. Read more about APR technology.

AccuTouch Five-Wire Resistive

AccuTouch five-wire resistiveAccuTouch five-wire resistive technology is the workhorse of resistive touchscreens, providing unsurpassed performance. When activated with a finger, gloved hand, fingernail, or object such as a credit card, the AccuTouch touchscreen delivers a fast, accurate response every time. It is impervious to environmental conditions such as liquid spills and splashes, humidity, and washdown-the most contamination-resistant touchscreen available. AccuTouch is widely used in point-of-sale, industrial, and medical applications and is available for both flat panel and CRT solutions. Read more about AccuTouch technology.

CarrollTouch Infrared

CarrollTouch infraredCarrollTouch infrared technology is the survivor of harsh applications. It's the only technology that does not rely on an overlay or substrate to register a touch, so it's impossible to physically "wear out" the touchscreen. CarrollTouch technology combines superior optical performance with excellent gasket-sealing capabilities, so it's an excellent choice for harsh industrial and outdoor kiosk applications. Touched with a finger, gloved hand, fingernail, or stylus, it delivers a fast, accurate response every time. CarrollTouch infrared technology is available for flat panel solutions.

IntelliTouch Surface Wave

IntelliTouch surface waveIntelliTouch surface wave is the optical standard of touch. Its pure glass construction provides superior optical performance and makes it the most scratch-resistant technology available. It's nearly impossible to physically "wear out" this touchscreen. IntelliTouch is widely used in kiosk, gaming, and office automation applications and is available for both flat panel and CRT solutions. Read more about IntelliTouch technology.

SecureTouch Surface Wave

SecureTouch surface waveSecureTouch provides all the features of IntelliTouch along with tempered glass construction for superior resistance to breakage and vandalism. It's nearly impossible to physically break or "wear out" these touchscreens. SecureTouch is widely used in kiosk, gaming, and office automation applications and is available for flat panel solutions. Read more about SecureTouch technology.

iTouch Surface Wave

iTouch surface waveFor CRT-based applications, iTouch technology provides superior optical and image quality. The surface wave technology is applied directly to the faceplate of the CRT, so 100% of the image's original brightness and clarity comes through. The CRT faceplate is extremely strong and resistant to scratches, breakage, and vandalism. iTouch is widely used in kiosk, gaming, and office automation applications and is available for CRT solutions.

Projected Capacitive

Elo projected capacitiveProjected capacitive technology enables touches to be sensed through a protective layer in front of a display, allowing touchmonitors to be installed behind store windows or vandal-resistant glass. DirectTouch consists of a 7.8 mm sensor with tempered glass outer layer, and ThruTouch works through a customer-installed outer layer. The complete system resists impacts, scratches, and vandalism and is also unaffected by moisture, heat, rain, snow and ice, or harsh cleaning fluids, making it ideal for outdoor applications. The solid-state touchscreen and controller provide increased levels of reliability and longer life expectancy, resulting in a drift-free response and a low-maintenance unit that requires no recalibration.

Surface Capacitive

Elo surface capacitiveSurface capacitive touchscreens provide a solution for customers who want an alternative to their capacitive options available today. The narrow, proprietary Z-borders yield an inherently linear sensor. The transparent protective coating makes the sensor resistant to scratches and abrasions. Touch performance is unaffected by everyday use and mishaps such as dirt, dust, condensation, liquid spills, contaminants or cleaning solutions. Yet the surface capacitive touchscreens respond quickly and easily with excellent dragging performance. And the Elo-designed controller responds to quick, light touches, and operates drift-free even in areas of poor grounding. Read more about surface capacitive technology.
