AccuTouch Five-Wire Resistive Touchscreens
AccuTouch Five-Wire Resistive Touchscreens
For Human-Machine Interface
AccuTouch touchscreens, the proven market leader in fivewire resistive technology, are the preferred solution for
applications that demand reliability, input flexibility, and
contamination resistance. AccuTouch resistive touchscreens,
with proprietary Elo Touch Solutions technology, deliver a touch
response that is drift-free and accurate in high-use applications.
Compare the five-wire design of AccuTouch, where both X and
Y measurements are made on a stable rear glass layer where
other resistive touchscreen designs use a flexing plastic coversheet to measure only one axis. As a result, AccuTouch resistive touchscreens provide a longer product life backed by a fiveyear warranty—withstanding more than 35 million touches versus the one-year warranty typical with shorter life four and
eight-wire touchs creens from other manufacturers. AccuTouch
touchscreens can be sealed against contamination to support
NEMA 4/4x/12 and IP65 standards. AccuTouch touchscreens are
the ideal solution for point-of-sale (POS), voting machines,
industrial automation, medical equipment, retail, office, and
pharmacy automation.
AccuTouch touchscreens are available in four configurations:
improved, enhanced, true-flat and Zero-bezel. With improved
and enhanced AccuTouch touchscreens, a flat flexible cable is
soldered to the glass. AccuTouch true-flat and Zero-bezel touchscreens use a flexible printed circuit cable that virtually elimi-
nates the cable attachment bump that is typical on most resistive touchscreens and enable a smooth, flat integration.
