Gain more computing power with an industrial touch monitor

For the demanding and strenuous environments of industrial and manufacturing settings, an industrial touch monitor provides the durability, performance and ease of operation that workers need to stay productive. An industrial touch screen display is built with components that can withstand the intense conditions of industrial environments and are shielded from temperature, vibration, shock and humidity with special protective housing.

For an industrial touch screen monitor that is highly engineered to deliver superior performance, rugged reliability and a longer product lifecycle, leading companies in a broad range of industries choose ruggedized computer and display technologies from Comark.

The technology behind an industrial touch monitor

An industrial touch monitor is most often constructed with capacitive or resistive technology. A resistive touch screen has traditionally been the norm in rugged technology – it uses the pressure from a finger, stylus or gloved hand to register input and interaction. A resistive industrial touch monitor is usually less expensive than its capacitive counterpart, and it is less likely to record inadvertent input from water, dirt or dust. A resistive industrial touch screen, however, is more susceptible to wear – a scratched or pierced screen may no longer record accurate input, rendering the device inoperable until a repair can be made.

Capacitive technologies are most common in consumer electronics – they receive input from electrical conductivity of a finger or a special stylus. Capacitive touchscreens enable multi-touch gestures like pinching and zooming that are integral to certain applications. Capacitive monitors are also more durable in that they can continue to operate even when the screen is cracked, scratched or pierced. Capacitive touchscreens are more expensive in general, and they are more sensitive to accidental input from water and dust.

Choosing the right industrial touch monitor depends on the specific needs of any particular industrial setting.
