Siemens Touch Screen Models

The touch screen is also called "touch screen" and "touch panel". It is an inductive liquid crystal display device that can receive input signals such as contacts. When the graphic buttons on the screen are touched, the tactile feedback system on the screen can Drive various connection devices according to pre-programmed programs, which can be used to replace mechanical button panels, and create dynamic audio and video effects by using LCD display screens.
As a newest computer input device, touch screen is a simple, convenient and natural way of human-computer interaction. It gives multimedia a new look and is a very attractive new multimedia interactive device. Mainly used in public information inquiry, industrial control, military command, electronic games, multimedia teaching, etc.

Touch screen technology is the most acceptable computer input method for ordinary people after keyboard, mouse, tablet, and voice input. With this technology, the user can operate the host computer by simply touching the icon or text on the computer display screen with his finger, thereby making the human-computer interaction more straightforward. This technology greatly facilitates users and is a very attractive new multimedia interactive device.
The essence of the touch screen is a sensor, which is composed of a touch detection part and a touch screen controller. The touch detection component is installed in front of the display screen to detect the user's touch position and send the touch screen controller; the main function of the touch screen controller is to receive touch information from the touch point detection device and convert it into contact coordinates to the CPU , At the same time, it can receive the commands from the CPU and execute them.

Technical characteristics:
From the perspective of technical principles, the touch screen is a transparent absolute coordinate positioning system. First of all, it must be transparent, so it must solve the transparency problem through material technology, such as digitizers, writing boards, elevator switches, they are not Touch screen; secondly, it is absolute coordinates, which is where the finger touches, no second action is required, unlike a mouse, it is a system of relative positioning, we can note that touch screen software does not require a cursor, and the cursor affects the user Attention, because the cursor is used for relatively positioned devices. To move a relatively positioned device to a place, you must first know where you are and in which direction, and you need to constantly give feedback to the user every moment. So that there is no deviation. These are not required for touch screens with absolute coordinate positioning; secondly, they can detect the touch action of the finger and determine the position of the finger.
1) Transparent characteristics
Transparent, it directly affects the visual effect of the touch screen. Transparency has a problem with the degree of transparency. Infrared technology touch screens and surface acoustic wave touch screens are only separated by a layer of pure glass. Transparency can be regarded as a leader. Other touch screens need to be carefully considered. "Transparent". A general concept. Many touch screens are multi-layer composite films. It is not enough to summarize its visual effect with only a little transparency. It should include at least four characteristics: transparency, color distortion, reflectivity and clarity. For example, the degree of reflection includes the degree of specular reflection and the degree of diffractive reflection, but the degree of diffractive reflection on the touch screen surface has not yet reached the CD. For users, these four metrics are basically enough.
Due to the existence of the light transmittance and wavelength curve, the image seen through the touch screen inevitably produces color distortion from the original image. The static image feels only the color distortion, and the dynamic multimedia image feels not very Comfortable, the color distortion, which is the maximum color distortion in the picture, is naturally as small as possible. The usual transparency can only be the average transparency in the figure, of course, the higher the better.
2) Reflective characteristics
Reflectivity mainly refers to the light and shadow behind the image due to specular reflection, such as people, windows, lights, etc. Reflective is the negative effect brought by the touch screen. The smaller the better, it affects the user's browsing speed. In severe cases, even the image characters can not be recognized. The use environment of the highly reflective touch screen is limited, and the on-site lighting layout is also forced to be adjusted. Most touch screens with reflective problems provide another surface-treated model: the matte surface touch screen, also known as anti-glare type, the price is slightly higher, the anti-glare type has a significant decrease in reflectivity, and is suitable for halls or exhibitions with very sufficient lighting The location, however, the light transmission and clarity of the anti-glare type have also dropped significantly. Clarity, after some touch screens are installed, the handwriting is blurred, the image details are blurred, and the entire screen looks vague, and it is not clear. This is the poor clarity. The problem of sharpness is mainly caused by the multi-layer thin film structure touch screen, which is caused by the repeated light and reflection and refraction between the thin film layers. In addition, the anti-glare touch screen also has reduced sharpness due to the frosted surface. The definition is not good, the eyes are easily fatigued, and there is also some damage to the eyes, so you should pay attention to distinguish when buying a touch screen. [6]
3) Absolute coordinates
The touch screen is an absolute coordinate system. Click where you want to choose it. The essential difference with a relative positioning system such as a mouse is the intuitiveness of being in place at once. The characteristic of the absolute coordinate system is that each positioning coordinate has no relationship with the last positioning coordinate. The touch screen is physically a set of independent coordinate positioning systems. The data of each touch is converted to the coordinates on the screen through the calibration data. No matter under what circumstances, the set of coordinates of the touch screen, the output data of the same point is stable. If it is unstable, then the touch screen cannot guarantee the absolute coordinate positioning, and the point is not accurate. This is the most feared problem of the touch screen: drift. Technically, all touch screens that cannot guarantee that the same point touches the same sampled data every time have the problem of drift. At present, only capacitive touch screens have drift phenomena.
4) Detection and positioning
To detect touch and locate, various touch screen technologies rely on their own sensors to work, and even some touch screens are themselves a set of sensors. The respective positioning principles and the sensors used determine the response speed, reliability, stability and life of the touch screen.
