Elo TouchSystems will be offering the NEC MultiSync LCD1550V, NEC
MultiSync LCD1850X the NEC MultiSync LCD2010X and the newly launched NEC
MultiSync LCD1850E with additional LCD models to be offered in the future.
These touchmonitors are available with various touch technologies to address
the many needs of the touch market. The most popular include Elo’s AccuTouch
five-wire resistive and IntelliTouch surface-wave touch technologies.
Elo’s AccuTouch five-wire resistive touch technology is the workhorse of
touchscreens, providing unsurpassed performance. When activated with a
finger, gloved hand, fingernail, or an object such as a credit card, AccuTouch
delivers a fast, accurate response every time. AccuTouch is impervious to
environmental conditions such as liquid spills and splashes, humidity, and
washdown. It’s the most contamination-resistant touchscreen available.
AccuTouch is widely used in point-of-sale, industrial, and medical
Elo’s IntelliTouch surface-wave technology is the optical standard of
touchscreens. Its pure glass construction provides superior optical
performance and makes it the most scratch-resistant technology available.
It’s nearly impossible to physically “wear out” IntelliTouch touchscreens.
IntelliTouch is widely used in public access environments including kiosk,
gaming, and office automation applications.
Integrated NEC-Mitsubishi touchmonitors are available through Elo in both
black and white cabinet options. NEC-Mitsubishi monitors are backed by a
three-year limited warranty, including backlight, in addition to Elo’s five-
year (AccuTouch) and ten-year (IntelliTouch) touch technology warranties. For
