New open-frame LCD touchmonitors offer large screen display benefits

Tyco Electronics UK (Elo TouchSystems Division) : 25 January, 2008  (New Product)
Tyco Electronics' Elo TouchSystems has created a new family of large-screen, wide-aspect open-frame LCD touchmonitors by combining high-performance LCD panels with the industry's leading touch technologies.
The 2039L, 2239L, 2639L and 3239L LCD open-frame touchmonitors, ranging in size from 20in through 32in respectively, are designed specifically for use in public venues, such as point-of-information kiosks, interactive digital-signage displays and retail self-service. The monitors offer viewing angles from 160 degrees to 178 degrees, supplemented by brightness as high as 500nits.

The new large-screen, wide-aspect displays include a choice of the industry-leading Elo TouchSystems touch technologies, such as IntelliTouch surface wave, surface capacitive and the innovative Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR). Elo's touch technologies provide stable, durable touch options that are resistant to scratches and liquids and can be activated in a variety of ways.

According to Elo TouchSystems' product manager, Kristof Heyndrickx, large, bright screens with wide-viewing angles give developers the ability to design applications that captivate the user's attention.

'Elo TouchSystems open-frame touchmonitors have earned a reputation for high quality and performance,' said Heyndrickx. 'We're not only a world leader in touch technology, but one of the world's largest producers of touchmonitors. And we've put that know-how behind the design and manufacture of our new family of large, wide-aspect touchmonitors. Our APR and IntelliTouch touch technologies offer optimal light transmission to the user - up to 92 percent. For example, our new 2039L 20inch touchmonitor furnishes a 178 x 178-degree wide viewing angle and 500nits typical brightness.'

Heyndrickx also explained that Elo designs and manufactures open-frame touchmonitors for the specific demands of public venues. 'In addition, Elo's touchmonitors are designed for touch from the ground up. It is not added as an afterthought.'

The new family of open-frame touchmonitors benefits from a comprehensive range of features that includes analogue and digital interfaces, multi-lingual on-screen display (OSD), flexible mounting options and worldwide compliance. The open-frame chassis features an integrated, precision mini-bezel with a watertight seal.

By including a choice of touch technologies within the same form factor, Elo offers long-time users of surface capacitive touch technology an opportunity to expand their existing supplier base. It also offers more choices by providing a possible migration path to alternative touch technologies such as IntelliTouch and APR, which offer many advantages, including improved optical characteristics, accuracy and reliability. APR also has the added advantage of palm rejection.
