In addition to the drivers below, there are alternative drivers and driver-less options that can be used with Hope Industrial touch screens and Linux variants. Contact technical support for more information.
The 1524L touchmonitors are designed to provide a single-source selection of entry-level LCD monitors, aimed at the fast-changing consumer retail/POS and hospitality/POS markets. While offered at a lower price-point, they still provide reliable, durable operation and come from the worldwide leader in touchmonitors, Elo TouchSystems. The 1524L features Elo AccuTouch five-wire resistive touch technology.
The location of the installed software varies. Some hardware will add a pane to System Settings from where you can configure the device. Other hardware puts a utility in the Applications folder that does a similar job. Typically, drivers will also put files in other folders in your user Library folder or the system Library folder. The folders in which they put files may include Application Support, LaunchAgents, and Preferences.
The number of possible locations for files installed by drivers makes uninstalling them manually a tricky process. You need to check each possible location, look for the files and remove them. Thankfully, there is an easier way.
Power settings can cause the touch screen to stop working after waking the computer from sleep mode. Change the power settings so that the touch screen stays active while the computer is in sleep mode.
Dell Technologies recommends updating the device drivers and BIOS as part of your scheduled update cycle. These device drivers and BIOS updates may contain feature enhancements or changes that help keep your system software current and compatible with other system modules (hardware and software) as well as increased stability.
Touchscreen monitors are for simple and intuitive interaction with your computer system. Depending on your needs, the installation of a touchscreen monitor can be space-saving, time-saving and help with accurate input. We utilize touchscreen technology across a variety of personal and commercial equipment, including phones, tablets, self-service kiosks, signage, point-of-sale systems, and more.
Ask yourself a few questions about what, where, and how when considering what design and size of touch screen you need. There are variances in the features available in this technology to think about before deciding. Some of these include:
The Elo Touch Solutions AccuTouch touchscreens are based on proven five-wire resistive technology, the preferred solution for applications that demand reliability, input flexibility, and contamination resistance. AccuTouch touchscreens are available in bezel and zero-bezel designs, with proprietary Elo technology to deliver a touch response that is drift-free and accurate in high-use applications.
Elo AccuTouch delivers both X and Y measurements made on a stable rear glass layer where many 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, designed to withstand more than 35 million touches.
AccuTouch touchscreens can be sealed against contamination to support NEMA 4/4x/12 and IP65 standards. The zero-bezel design eliminates the need for a traditional front-bezel, achieving a smooth, seamless flat surface for a clean, modern look.
AccuTouch zero-bezel touchscreens use a flexible printed circuit cable that virtually eliminates the cable attachment bump that is typical on most resistive touchscreens and enables a smooth, flat integration. The screens work with standard Elo controller/chip solutions and drivers under a wide variety of operating systems, and are available in a set of standard products as well as customized designs.
Elo first introduced Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) touch technology in 1987. SAW touchscreen technology delivers superior image clarity, resolution, light transmission, and reliability because it utilizes clear glass that continues to work even if scratched. There are no coatings, plastic films or moving parts to wear out or be damaged. The active area of the touchscreen is resistant to chemicals such as acetone, toluene, methyl ethyl ketone, isopropyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, ethyl acetate, ammonia-based glass cleaners, gasoline, kerosene, and vinegar.
Elo offers IntelliTouch SAW technology with transactional single touch or interactive multi-touch capabilities. Micro-bezel or zero-bezel designs are offered along with fully tempered, heat or chemically strengthened glass for ruggedized applications. IntelliTouch technology has met all the Additional Qualification (AQ) testing requirements established by Microsoft for Windows 7 multi-touch touch gesture recognition.
IntelliTouch SAW is a cost-effective alternative to projected capacitive (PCAP) touch technology that offers better optical clarity and the same zero-bezel style with significantly smaller border width. Three axes of touch information are used to precisely discern two simultaneous touch locations anywhere on the screen. IntelliTouch solutions offer a simple bill of material, a less complex manufacturing and touchscreen integration process, and less capital investment than PCAP technologies.
Customization capabilities include logos, clear icons, border buttons, and other enhancements can be added during the design cycle. IntelliTouch can scale across a wide range of screen sizes, without performance degradation. The stable, drift-free operation of SAW touchscreen technology provides an accurate touch response measured on three axes using a finger, gloved hand, or passive stylus. Elo's sensitive touch response recognizes location and amount of pressure applied. Elo has tested IntelliTouch touchscreens to more than 50 million touches in one location without failure, using a stylus simulating a finger. The graphics quality and colors of HD resolution software applications are preserved based on the optical clarity of SAW clear glass touch technology.
The Elo IntelliTouch Pro Projected Capacitive (PCAP) touch technology offers a fast and sensitive response and professional-grade reliability combined with a stylish, sleek design. Elo IntelliTouch Pro PCAP is designed for the rigors of commercial applications. The two glass solution (2GS) offers pristine optical clarity, high touch durability and long term stability over temperature. IntelliTouch Pro is available in standard screen sizes up to 32-inches with 10-point multi-touch capabilities.
Elo offers a complete PCAP solution including touch screen, controllers, drivers for various operating systems and software utilities resulting in shorter development and integration time. The complete integration guide provides guidelines to simplify integration and avoid typical issues such as EMI from sources such as the power supply or LCD screen.
