Ruggedized touchmonitor to reliably run multitouch gaming, wayfinding, concierge services and other programs



Tyco Electronics unveiled the new Elo TouchSystems’ 2242L touchmonitor with IntelliTouch Plus surface acoustic wave product technology during this week’s International Casino Exhibition (ICE) 2011 in London.

The Elo TouchSystems 2242L provides OEMs and software developers a ruggedized, 22-inch open-frame touchmonitor built to reliably run multitouch gaming, wayfinding, concierge services and other touch-powered self-service programs.

The Elo TouchSystems 2242L, with IntelliTouch Plus surface acoustic wave (SAW) touch technology, is Tyco Electronics’ newest monitor compatible with the Windows 7 operating system additional qualifications (AQ) for multitouch functionality. It has been available to select partners since early December 2010.

“Gaming and hospitality environments present unique performance and durability requirements for touch screens, and the Windows 7 operating system delivers enormous design advantages with its stable and innovative touch interface,” said Murtaza Amiji, business development director at Tyco Electronics Touch Solutions business.

“Tyco Electronics blended these market needs and OS capabilities in our Windows 7 compatible Elo 2242L monitor with the IntelliTouch Plus surface acoustic wave product technology to increase the range of touch options for the gaming industry.” The Elo surface acoustic wave touch technology system received Windows Touch Additional Qualification (AQ) status for touch interactivity by passing the testing criteria established by Microsoft for Windows 7 operating system. With this certification, customers can trust that the 2242L will work reliably with the Windows 7 operating system without the need to load external touch drivers and can easily take advantage of the touch functionality built into the Windows 7 operating system.

Unique to the 2242L Windows 7 compatible touchmonitor is the use of Tyco Electronics IntelliTouch Plus product technology, which, unlike other multi-touch systems, uses three axes of touch information to deliver sensitive, accurate, drift-free recordings of two simultaneous touch locations anywhere on the screen regardless of position or pressure applied. The IntelliTouch Plus touchmonitor uses pure-glass construction to deliver excellent imagery, high light transmissions and is not affected by variations in ambient or extreme light. It also supports finger, gloved hand and soft stylus activation and features durable, scratch-resistant glass to assure continuous surface performance even if scratched.
