USB Touch Screens

USB Touch Screens can be used to turn any standard digital display into an interactive touch screen monitor. There are two technology types available to quickly and easily transform your display into a touch screen.

USB Touch Screen Technologies are currently available in IR bezels that apply on top of your existing flat panel LCD, LED or Projection Screen Display Frame.

The other option for USB Touch Screens is a Touch Screen Film that applies to a piece of glass or Plexiglass and placed over the top of a flat panel display. Many times a frame is used that will conceal wires and such will providing a surface just off the face of the actual screen to prevent potential damage from vandalism and accidents.

USB Touch screen films are also great for storefront displays where the display and touch screen is installed inside the store. Users in front of the store or business can use the touchscreen and interact with the content while outside (never physically touching the technology).

If you know which USB touch screen technology you want or need, then you can certainly jump to the appropriate product page. If you are undecided, unsure or would like to learn more please keep reading this as there are several questions that need to be answered before you decide.

Understanding Thru Glass Technology (projected capacitive)

Projected Capacitive Touch (PCT) technology is a capacitive technology which permits more accurate and flexible operation, by etching the conductive layer. An X-Y grid is formed either by etching a single layer to form a grid pattern of electrodes, or by etching two separate, perpendicular layers of conductive material with parallel lines or tracks to form the grid (comparable to the pixel grid found in many LCD displays).

The greater resolution of PCT allows operation without direct contact. Such that the conducting layers can be coated with further protective insulating layers, and operate even under screen protectors, or behind weather and vandal-proof glass. Due to the top layer of a PCT being glass, PCT is a more robust solution versus resistive touch technology. Depending on the implementation, an active or passive stylus can be used instead of or in addition to a finger. This is common with point of sale devices that require signature capture. Gloved fingers may or may not be sensed, depending on the implementation and gain settings environments.
