Why To Choose A Touch Screen Display?

Touch screens have been with us since the early 1970's but it has only been in the last few years that the technology has expanded into personal applications as well as business.

Traditionally touchscreen displays are expensive and can only be found in industrial applications but recent advances and falling cost of technology means that the touch screen display is now in everything from mobile phones and pocket computer to ATM machines and information points.

Touchscreens work in one of a number of ways from using infrared to detect the heat of a finger to the more accurate resistive and capacitive touch screens that use an electrical field.

Touchscreens have an obvious advantage over conventional monitors in that using a graphical user interface (GUI) and touch screen means that the display can act as both an input and output device so there is no need for a separate keyboard and mouse and their associated wires.

In an industrial environment where the display may have to endure contaminants such as grease, dirt and dust or suffer the risk of getting wet then a sealed capacitive touchscreen would be the best option. 

If a touchscreen display is to be left in a public area, unattended or outside then the simplest form of touch screen, the strain gauge, where the screen is spring mounted on the four corners and the movement is measured when the screen is touched, is by far the most durable touch screen display.
