Elo expands projected capacitive touchscreen line
Press release [Thursday 28 April 2016]
Elo, the leading global supplier of commercial touchscreen solutions, announced today the introduction of its large format TouchPro Pro-M projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreens. The Pro-M series addition to Elo's current Pro-G series touchscreens extends the Elo PCAP portfolio which now spans 7.0" to 70.0" true multi-touch touchscreens. The existing Pro-G series includes sizes from 7.0" up to 27". The Pro-M series now extends the PCAP line to included standard 32", 42", 46" and 55" touchscreens with customized screens up to 70". These larger screens are designed for the rigors of commercial purposes and are customizable to fit the needs of almost any application or environment.
Elo's TouchPro family of touchscreens includes the Pro-G series which boasts a highly durable glass-glass construction in sizes up to 27" and the Pro-M series touchscreens which are designed with leading edge mesh construction with sizes up to 70". The Pro-G series can also be tuned to provide true multi-touch performance in robust, high durability applications with up to an 8mm total touch-through glass capability. The Pro-M's advanced metal mesh construction allows for a lighter weight construction to balance the larger sizes and uses leading low resistance technology. The construction enables highly flexible screen designs that will meet most application requirements and boasts industry leading optical performance. Both solutions offer excellent optics, fast touch response and high durability with industrial grade reliability. The Pro-M series touchscreens can also be customized to provide support for up to a 50-point, multi-touch solution.
Designers can leverage Elo's more than 40 years of engineering expertise to customize PCAP touchscreens to their specific needs. Custom options include various cover glass choices; glass treatments such as tempered, chemically strengthened, heat strengthened or anti-glare; and thicker cover glass for vandal-proof applications. Elo drivers provide enhanced capabilities such as touch on release, touch exclusion zones, touch count restrictions, edge acceleration, beep on touch and a real-time application programming interface. Elo supports multiple operating systems including Apple Mac OS, Google Android, Linux, and Microsoft Windows. Tailored driver software is also an option, custom crafted to your specifications by Elo design engineers.
"The large format PCAP screens offer our clients so much more flexibility," said Niklas Fallgren, Elo's vice president of the OEM Business Unit. "The size and customization options and construction choices of our TouchPro series means we can custom craft products that meet the unique requirements of OEM designers with the quality, technical expertise and design leadership that the industry has come to rely on from Elo."
