Elo Introduces 1519L and 1919L Widescreen Touchmonitors

Posted January 27, 2010

Elo 1919lNew Touchmonitors Deliver Style and Functionality to Rugged Environments Like Point-of-Sale (POS), Point-of-Information (POI), Interactive Digital Signage, and Kiosk Information Systems

Elo TouchSystems, a Tyco Electronics business, brings high performance LCD panels together with the industry’s leading touch technologies to create new wide-aspect touchmonitors.

The two new touchmonitors are 15 and 19 inches and are well suited for public venues such as point-of-sale (POS), point-of-information (POI), point-of-service, interactive digital signage, loyalty systems, kiosk information systems, light industrial shop-floor automation and home control. Both touchmonitors are built to withstand the rugged and sometimes punishing commercial or public environments where many people use them. Personal computer monitors that have not been ruggedized may not last long in these types of environments.

Both touch monitors are available in three industry-leading Elo touch technologies:

  1. Zero-bezel APR ― touch is sensed on the display when the unique pattern of sounds is recognized. It has the advantage and durability of pure glass, works with any input device; finger, glove, pen, credit card, etc. – and is resistant to water, dust, and grease.
  2. Standard-bezel IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave ― uses pure-glass touchscreens for excellent clarity, resolution, and light transmission. It has a durable, scratch-resistant glass surface, delivers stable, no drift calibration performance and can be activated by a finger, gloved hand, or soft stylus.
  3. Zero-bezel AccuTouch 5-wire resistive ― delivers stable, drift-free operation. It has broad input flexibility, is contamination resistant and is accurate for high-use applications.
