Touchscreens have infiltrated every aspect of consumer electronics, but they are also beginning to gain a foothold in business applications as well. Utilising am infrared LED array, along with photodetector pairs, infrared touch monitors allow input from stylus as well as human hands, and they are much more sensitive to non-conductor stimulus than other touchscreens that rely on capacitive technology.
Infrared touch screens have a number of advantages over the other touchscreen models. Since the detection array is situated externally to the glass itself, the glass on infrared screens does not have to be specially patterned, so the touchscreens are usually cheaper and less susceptible to damage. The main trade off when shopping for an infrared touch monitor is in the distortion that can occur on their curved surfaces, and the fact that close contact with the screen can occasionally trigger an accidental click/selection.
While there are an infinite number of ways that touchscreens can be utilised in business point of sale systems, infrared touchscreens are best for applications where the individuals using them might have gloves on, such as in restaurants or manufacturing centres. In restaurants, infrared screens can be used in the back of the house, allowing chefs and expediters to flip through active orders without having to remove their food preparation gloves. Infrared touch monitors are also perfect for outdoor use, as they are not as sensitive to interference from moisture or dust as other touchscreens.
