Elo Touch Solutions (Elo), a portfolio company of The Gores Group, has expanded its zero-bezel touch technology portfolio with the IntelliTouch Pro projected capacitive (PCAP) solution. Elo's IntelliTouch Pro solution set includes touchscreen, controller and software from a proven supplier with global support capabilities. Elo field application engineering and development resources stand ready to help OEM customers successfully integrate PCAP touch capabilities into intelligent systems for the automotive, banking, gaming, healthcare, hospitality, industrial automation, retail, transportation and other commercial applications. IntelliTouch Pro is unique in its ability to be performance optimised for Microsoft Windows 8.1 touch specifications or focus on optical clarity that brings to life the vivid colours and HD graphics of today's software. IntelliTouch Pro delivers ten (10) touch capability at screen sizes up to 32 inches, with roadmap offerings that scale to support up to sixty (60) touches on 4K, 8K and 16K screens over 100 inches in size.
"This is a great new offering that combines Elo's deep expertise in touchscreens, controllers and drivers with our unmatched system integration experience," said Craig Witsoe, CEO Elo Touch Solutions. "While many suppliers are focused on consumer applications of PCAP such as phones and tablets, Elo specialises in commercial and industrial applications requiring higher performance and more specialised custom application characteristics. As the original inventors of touchscreens and a global leader in touchscreen technology, our application engineers are able to help our customers determine the right solution for their specific application."
Elo brings its research, design, manufacturing, customisation and support capabilities to help customers avoid integration issues, enable touch on borders, create unique shapes and curves and incorporate logos into the final product. IntelliTouch Pro can be integrated with a variety of cover glass including Corning Gorilla Glass; tempered; chemically strengthened; heat strengthened; anti-glare coatings; and increased cover glass thickness. Injected noise immunity, palm rejection, contaminant rejection and fast drag response are all enabled through Elo's unique controller firmware and driver software. Going beyond traditional USB HID drivers, Elo drivers support Apple Mac OS, Google Android, Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems while providing enhanced capabilities such as touch on release, touch exclusion zones, touch count restrictions, edge acceleration, beep on touch and a real-time application programming interface.
IntelliTouch Pro PCAP technology complements Elo's other zero-bezel touchscreen technologies including the patented IntelliTouch ZB / iTouch surface acoustic wave (SAW) and AccuTouch ZB five-wire resistive touchscreens. All Elo touchscreens are professional-grade and built for continuous use in public environments.
