MANUSOFT has released a new touchscreen monitor for its dynamic resource control (DRC) system integrating touchscreen and computer in a compact, industrial-strength unit.
The new model has a hard laminated microtouch resistive LCD glass surface capable of withstanding heavy knocks.
· Minimum Intel Celeron 3 processor.
· Can be built to customer requirements.
· Minimum 64MB of RAM.
· No CD ROM required.
· Network 10/100 carried on the board.
· Video on the board.
· 15-inch LCD screen with microtouch laminated touchscreen.
· Industrial casing keeps unit dust free.
"We needed to have a device on the factory floor that could collect data directly via the shop floor employee," ManuSoft executive Jim Roach said.
"But putting computers with keyboards into factories creates mass resistance from operators they weren't pleased.
“The presence of a touchscreen totally overcame those fears and integration with the manufacturing floor culture has been seamless.”
ManuSoft DRC stocks industrial casing and makes computers to order. Hence the product turnaround is two days.
