FAQs

• Rugged metal construction withstands harsh conditions.

• Wear and chemical resistant surfaces.

• Sealed up to IP68K to prevent liquid and dirt ingress.

• Industrial grade components withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperatures.

• IP and NEMA are international classification systems for the sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment against the intrusion into the equipment of foreign bodies (i.e. tools, dust, fingers) and moisture.For more information please refer to the official IP and NEMA web sites:

• Bezel mount units are designed to be panel mounted from the front.

• Uncased units are fixed from underneath the panel.

• Cased units are free standing.

• All keyboards and trackerballs are covered by up to a 5 year return-to-base warranty.

• All computer products are covered by up to a 3 year return-to-base warranty.

• A resistive touchscreen uses two layers, one coated with conductive material, the other with resistive material.

• The two layers are separated by almost invisible microdots.

• An electrical current runs through the two layers while the monitor is operational.

• When a user touches the screen, the two layers make contact in that exact spot.

• The change in the electrical field is noted and the coordinates of the point of contact are calculated by the computer.

• A capacitive touch screen has a layer that stores electrical charge, placed on the glass panel of the monitor.

• When a user touches the monitor with his or her finger, some of the charge is transferred to the user, so the charge on the capacitive layer decreases.

• This decrease is measured in circuits located at each corner of the monitor and the position of the touch is calculated.

• Resistive touchscreens are a more cost effective option and can be used with gloved hands or a stylus, but are more susceptible to damage.

• Capacitive touscreens offer better durability and clarity, but require the screen to be touched by hand and are therefore not recommended for environments where PPP is required.
