POS Touch Screen Monitor

Touch screen monitors are an integral part of the restaurant, hospitality, medical, or service industry’s point of sale systems. Employees can touch a part of the touch screen in place of using a mouse, saving time and reducing clutter in the POS area.

Touch Screen monitors are available from 10 inches up to the full 46 inch touch monitor but the most popular are the 15 and 17 inch sizes. These POS touch monitors are built to handle greater abuse than standard LCD displays, extending their lifespan even in abusive environments.

Additional POS Touch Screen Monitor Information

Touch Screen monitors come in many shapes and sizes. For the most part, a 15-inch screen will be plenty for retail and restaurant POS software. For other applications, such as informational kiosks, you may need a larger or smaller screen. The main concern when purchasing a touch screen monitor is what type of touch technology you will need: Resistive, Capacitive, or Infrared.

Resistive Touch Screens

One of the more common and affordable touch technologies, resistive touch screens use two thin screens separated by a thin gap to identify cursor position. When you tap the screen, the screens identify the position of the tap and adjust accordingly. Resistive touch screens are great for restaurants and factories because the technology can be activated using anything- finger, credit card, pen cap, stylus, as long as it creates the connection it will activate the screen.

Capacitive Touch Screens

Most consumer smartphones use a capacitive touch screen. This touch technology uses an overlay of capacitive wires on top of the screen. Your body conducts electricity, and so when you touch a portion of the screen, the touch screen can identify a change in capacitance and know where you touched the screen. Capacitive touch screens tend to be brighter than resistive monitors, but you are limited in the ways to interact with the device. They're often seen in gaming, customer service kiosks, and outdoor applications.

    Suggested Capacitive Touch Screen Monitors:
  • Elo 1529L - High Quality
  • Elo 2201L - Large Widescreen

Infrared Touch Screens

Infrared touch technology uses a grid of infrared light beams. When your finger, or a pen, or anything else breaks the plane of beams, the software identifies the location by which beams were broken. This technology provides some of the brightest colors, as there is no overlay whatsoever. It can also be sealed, making it more durable than capacitive or resistive touch screens. These monitors are great in harsh environments, such as automotive, food processing, hospital operating rooms, and ATMs.

    Suggested Infrared Touch Screen Monitors:
  • Elo 1928L - 19" screen
