Elo developed AccuTouch® technology with the harshest environments in mind, so it's no wonder that it excels in reliability, durability, and expected product life. Impervious to environmental conditions such as liquid spills and splashes and washdowns, these screens are the most contamination-resistant available. They deliver drift-free operation for a lifetime of 35 million finger touches.
AccuTouch touchscreens are based on proven five-wire resistive technology, the preferred solution for applications that demand reliability, input flexibility, and contamination resistance. The screens work with standard Elo controller/chip solutions and drivers under a wide variety of operating systems, and are available in a set of standard products as well as customized designs.
Resistive touch screens are made of at least two layers of flexible sheet (polycarbonate, in this case) laid atop a glass substrate where many other resistive touchscreen designs use a flexing plastic coversheet to measure only one axis. The sheets are coated with a resistive substance and are kept separated by tiny dots. When the touch screen is pressed, the flexible layers are pushed together, generating a change in resistance on both vertical and horizontal axis. This change in resistance is measured by sensors on the edges of the screen and the degree of change is measured as a touch point.
AccuTouch resistive touchscreens are available with proprietary Elo technology to deliver a touch response that is drift-free and accurate in high-use applications. It's designed to be integrated into almost any bezeled application for Elo reliability and quality., AccuTouch touchscreens can be sealed against contamination to support NEMA 4/4x/12 and IP65 standards. Every screen meets pencil hardness 3H per ASTM D3363. Agency approvals include UL, cUL, TÜV, CE and FCC Class A.
