What are the 5 Different Types Of Touch Screens?
Touch screens have become an integral part of everyone’s life in this modern world. Cell phones, ATM kiosks, ticket vending machines, manufacturing plants and more, all these use touch screens for efficient functionality.
There are Five Different Types of Touch Screens:
- Resistive: 5-wire Resistive Touch is the most widely used touch technology in the present day. A resistive touch screen monitor is composed of a glass panel and a film screen, each covered with a thin metallic layer, separated by a narrow gap. When the user touches the screen, the two metallic layers make contact, resulting in electrical flow.
- Surface capacitive touch: Surface capacitive touch screen is the second most popular type of touch screens available in the market. In a surface capacitive touch screen monitor, a transparent electrode layer is placed on top of a glass panel. This is then covered by a protective cover. When an exposed finger touches the monitor screen, it reacts to the static electrical capacity of the human body. Some of the electrical charge transfers from the screen to the user. This decrease in capacitance is detected by sensors located at the four corners of the screen, allowing the controller to determine the touch point.
- Projected capacitive: The functionality of the projected capacitive touch screen is similar to that of a surface capacitive touch screen. It has two more advantages – one is that it can be operated with surgical gloves or thin cotton gloves. Secondly, P-Cap enables multi-touch activation.
- Surface acoustic wave(SAW) touch: These type of monitors utilise a series of piezoelectric transducers and receivers. These are positioned along the sides of the monitor’s glass plate to create an invisible grid of ultrasonic waves on the surface. When the panel is touched, a portion of the wave is absorbed. This allows the receiving transducer to locate the touch point and send this data to the computer. These monitors can be activated by fingers, gloved hand, or soft-tip stylus.
- Infrared touch screen: These kind of monitors use IR emitters and receivers to create an invisible grid of light beams across the screen. This ensures the best image quality.
