Embedded Touch Screen Monitors
An embedded touch screen system is probably going to use touch-sensitive resistive or capacitive interactive media sensor technology that senses the position of your finger on the screen itself. The screen will then either allow the information to be displayed through a touch-sensitive surface such as a physical button, a form of resistive or capacitive transparent panel, a fingerprint sensor or even through a multi-touch display. Multi-touch displays are most often used with Windows based operating systems like Windows CE, Windows ME or Windows XP, and Microsoft Surface products.
One of the biggest advantages of embedded devices is the convenience of using them anywhere in the world at any time. No matter where you are there will always be an electronic device available to use. This can include business equipment, medical equipment, gaming consoles, digital signage and much more. These embedded displays are usually small enough to be placed almost anywhere, and will be extremely portable. They also do not take up a great deal of space, as most are around the size of a mobile phone.
There are a wide variety of embedded touch screen technologies in use today. The most common of these is the resistive or Capacitive technologies used for digital display displays. These are capable of detecting light, but also detect pressure, or physical movements. One of the biggest advantages of these types of displays is that they do not require backlighting, a necessity when using LED backlighting systems.
Other technologies include the Capacitive or Resistive technologies which uses electromagnetic impulses to sense changes in the capacitance of the display and transmit this information to the central computer. In some cases the electronic display will also incorporate software which allows the user to manipulate the device. This touch screens use a different type of interface than resistive and capacitive ones. The advantage of this is that it does not require the use of any software, which allows the embedded touch screen technology to integrate easily with the applications that the consumer chooses to use.
Some of these embedded touch screen modules can also be used to run other hardware such as printers and scanners. Others can even be used to control other electronic equipment, including cars, planes, robots, and more. Some embedded touch screen modules even incorporate a camera so that it can capture images of what is on the screen. In this way it can be used to enhance the user’s viewing experience, as many consumers report that they actually get a better feeling viewing things which are displayed on their screen, rather than viewing them on a monitor. Some embedded touch screen panels can be used in conjunction with a keyboard or a mouse for added input options.
Touch screen displays have really only started to reach mainstream popularity in recent years, with the advent of portable devices such as the iPad. Although many people remain skeptical about embedded system monitors, the increasing availability of these systems and the simple functionality which they provide has made them a strong choice for many consumers. Touch screen displays have really just scratched the surface of what consumers are capable of seeing, and there are a host of different uses for these devices which make them one of the most popular forms of smart display technology today.
