What is industrial touch screen?

June 15, 2022

Industrial touch screens are just a detailed classification of touch screens. Another type of universal touch screen is often seen in our lives. For example, ATM, mobile phone, smart home, POS system,etc. all have touch screens, which belong to the universal touch screen. Most of their use environments are ordinary environments.


Well, the biggest difference between industrial touch screens and general touch screens is that the applicable industrial environmental factors are more complex. In some factories, high or low temperature, vibration, dust, etc., will have a great impact on the performance of the touch screen, so, If you use a touch screen in a relatively special environment, you should use products with high performance and good protection. This is what we call an industrial touch screen.


Let's first get to know the industrial touch screen. The industrial touch screen is used in a special environment. It is the carrier of the human-computer interaction interface. Generally, we call the industrial touch screen HMI (Human Machine Interface), which is the medium for information interaction between the system and the user. , It transforms information into a form acceptable to humans. In fact, touch screens are mainly divided into two categories, one is the touch screen of the embedded windows system, and the other is the integrated touch screen of the embedded manufacturer.

The touch screen embedded in the Windows system This touch screen is actually a computer, and the mouse and keyboard of the computer are canceled, and the screen is made into a form of touch. This touch screen is embedded in the Windows system, and the actual operation is the same as other computers. You can also install various software, in fact, the mouse and keyboard are concentrated on the screen. If this kind of touch screen wants to do industrial monitoring, monitor the relevant parameters of the equipment, and display the process engineering, it is necessary to install the configuration software. This configuration software is just like other software that we usually install on the computer. Install the software to the system In the system, we can choose to start the configuration software automatically when the system is turned on. Specific functions must be set in the software and computer.


Manufacturer integrated touch screen This touch screen is developed by the manufacturer independently and is not embedded in the Windows system. The configuration software is directly integrated with the touch screen. This touch screen is a commonly used device for industrial control. It is generally smaller and more stable to use because of the touch screen The system is actually this software, instead of installing another software based on the Windows system, so it is more stable. For programming, you need to use the manufacturer's special programming software for operation. Each major manufacturer has its own independent programming software.

For industrial touch screens, there are now many manufacturers, whether domestic or foreign, generally, those who do industry will have their own touch screens. The manufacturers are divided into two categories, one is the configuration software that needs to be installed under the windows system, and the other is the integrated touch screen. The touch screen is a human-computer interaction tool we use. When we choose, we should choose the corresponding equipment according to the site environment and the requirements of Party A, according to the situation of the project. The achieved goal is the same, but according to the specific situation to choose the right equipment.
