Points To Remember Before Choosing A Touchscreen Display

Points To Remember Before Choosing A Touchscreen Display

Over decades, technology has seen unmatchable evolution, and as the world is changing, the technological industry is becoming sustainable and comfortable. Looking around will make you realize that the world is at your fingertips now as the technology industry has come a long way in terms of advancement.

Touch screens are becoming increasingly popular as the input device of choice, and there are numerous reasons for the increased popularity of using a touch screen panel.

The user activates the human-machine interface by touching with a stylus or a multi or single-finger touch. However, moving to the technical aspect of the touch panel, there are various touchscreen technologies with different methods: capacitive, projected capacitive, surface acoustic wave, and scanning infrared.

Capacitive touch screen devices consist of an insulator coated with a transparent conductor. A capacitive touch screen display does not necessarily use the force of the finger to change the flow of the electricity. Constructed out of a transparent insulating layer, such as glass or plastic, a capacitive screen uses the electrical qualities of the human body to respond quickly. If the insulating layer is transparent, it is utilized to produce electrical patterns on the interior of the insulating layer. 

When one uses their fingers to stroke a capacitive touch screen, they induce a change in the magnetic field of the screen on a specific place, which will be recorded by the circuit and utilized to trigger a function. Of course a capacitive touch pen can also be used instead of the human finger. 

For years, faytech has been expanding and promoting industrial touch screens in the market. Bechtle, Dell Technologies, NEC, Siemens, Continental, and Honeywell are well-known brands using faytech Industrial devices. 

But what are the points to remember before choosing the right touchscreen panel for you?


What is the use?

Before your purchase, you must have a clear purpose for the touch screen panel, if this is not clear, it is sometimes hard to find the right touch product. What would the basic requirements be: multi- or single-touch, standard- or high-brightness, for integration or as stand-alone solution, etc. Also, think about coating, peripherals or other requirements that would be needed for this project. With faytech, you are able to fully customize most parts of the touch screen, due to access to the complete supply chain.


Which touch technology is required?

Touch screen technology is rapidly evolving, making the user interface better and enriching their experience. The two primary technologies in the industrial world are capacitive and resistive. The capacitive touch is used in smartphones and tablets, working best with the screen using the human body electricity to recognize the interactions easily. Capacitive is one of the priciest technologies, which generally has the best touch experience with multi-touch option and sleek design.

At faytech, capacitive and resistive touchscreen devices are either standard equipped with 1000+ cds/m² brightness or are possible for customization for any project. Because of these improvements, an industrial touch screen panel is an excellent choice for use. 

faytech’s product range includes: 

  • Capacitive Touch Monitors & PCs

What is the required screen size?

The user must know the size of the device. The size depends on the use of the device, depending on how many people will be included on the screen, what will be used, and how far away the users are from the screen.


What is the position and what peripherals are required?

In general, touch screen devices are mounted to a wall, set up on the table, integrated into a machine or carried along as a tablet. But what do you want? The set-up of the screen depends on the purpose and the industry. Most industrial touch screens are fixed to walls or integrated into machines because they save space and make the place look more aesthetic. But then again, different solutions are required for different applications. Additionally, in some cases, additional peripherals are required to ensure the touchscreen can be used in your machine, which in most cases would require a customization. However, for faytech this is not an issue, as it is an expert in customizations.

All customization options are possible, such as: 

  • Integrated camera
  • Customized buttons
  • Customized connectors
  • Different mountings
  • Antimicrobial coating
  • Bluetooth, 3G, 4G & Wi-Fi
  • RFID-, fingerprint- or laser scanner
  • and additional peripheral options
