Why Open Frame Touch Screen Monitors Would Benefit Applications

Caltron supplies project applications with the correct open frame touch screen monitors to get the job done. Open frame touch screen monitors are designed to fit perfecting into applications that require integration into an enclosure.

Fremont, CA (I-Newswire) February 18, 2014 - When most applications look for a touch screen monitor, the first type of touch screen that might be considered would be a consumer grade desktop touch screen monitor. These consumer grade desktop touch screen monitors seem like they can be a good fit since it would likely have everything that the application might require. The unit comes fully enclosed and with touch functions that the application is probably looking for. Should the application require a non enclosed unit, then there is always a possibility of removing the bezel and desktop housing to try and integrate the whole unit into a larger or different enclosure.

Deciding to use a desktop touch screen monitor or a touch tablet can seem like a good choice in the short run, but down the road, it can actually be much more expensive and cause more headaches for repairs or replacements. Often times an open frame touch screen monitor is overlooked or not considered since it is not as popular or well known as desktop touch screen monitors. Pending on the application, using a desktop or touch tablet can actually be a good choice, however, for more complicated applications that require integration into larger enclosures or unique designs, it would be highly recommended to go with an Open Frame Touch Screen from Caltron. Open frame touch screen monitors are designed specifically for integration and OEM purposes. It takes away the hassle of trying to disassemble desktops to use.

When choosing an open frame touch screen to use in an application, there is less worry about unit revisions and mechanical changes, should the LCD panel have any revisions. Caltron's open frame touch screen monitors are designed to accommodate the viewable area and keep consistent with previous chassis designs so that units are always interchangeable and backwards compatible. A big upside to using an open frame touch screen is that it is a "what you see is what you get" type of deal. When taking apart a desktop, there is always a certain level of surprise element since revision changes occur frequently with new models or if there is any type of revision to the LCD display panel that is used. With open frame touch screen monitors removing the surprise element out of the equation, it makes it much easier for designers and integrators to design in a unit that will match perfectly for any enclosure or special design project.

While some desktop touch screen monitors might seem like a viable solution, they are mostly created for consumer use and are not recommended for industrial use or integration, as the components are not designed for such applications. There is absolutely nothing wrong with using a desktop touch screen monitor for simple solutions that require a touch screen monitor, but when looking for an adequate monitor that is capable of being designed into a larger enclosure, almost all integrators and OEMs alike will look for an open frame touch screen monitor since they are designed to be integrated into another application or enclosure. It is basically selecting the right tool to get the job done.
