ELOTE Connectivity Elo TouchSystems

Product Overview/Position

March, 2012 – Elo Touch Systems is pleased to announce the addition of zero-bezel projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreen technology to the Elo 1519L and 1919L widescreen LCD desktop touch monitors. The zero-bezel PCAP touchscreen gives a unique, aesthetically-pleasing seamless design resistant to water, impacts, scratches and other contaminants on the screen. And, with the Windows® 7 operating system and compatible driver multi-touch functionality is available.

"Multi-touch on the Windows® 7 operating system with a Windows® 7 compatible driver" is the ability to recognize the presence of two points of contact with the surface-enabling gestures such as pinch and zoom.

The 1519L and 1919L projected capacitive touch monitors are highly sensitive to a light touch with no known wear-out mechanism from repeated touches, which is an advantage for heavy, public usage applications.

Aimed at the fast-changing retail POS and hospitality markets, these monitors provide reliable, durable operation and expand the globally trusted Elo TouchSystems touchmonitor portfolio.

The 1519L and 1919L now feature a choice of touchscreen technologies: AccuTouch five-wire resistive touchscreen technology, one of the most widely used for retail applications and proven to survive splashing liquids, food and grease; IntelliTouch and iTouch pure glass surface wave technologies, for the ultimate in optical quality for dry retail and hospitality applications (iTouch is zero-bezel), Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR) technology and now, multi-touch projected capacitive.

  2. Windows 7: HID compliant dual touch
  3. MAC: HID compliant single touch
