Balmoral Technologies  supplies the standard Uticor ToughPanel touchpanel LCD displays that feature a dedicated processor as opposed to running on a computer platform. These touch panels offer a much faster response time for touch inputs of typically 0.75 seconds instead of slightly more than a second in a Windows CE environment.  

A Windows device is inherently slower in response time because it has a lot of overheads to cover during start-up and operation. A dedicated processor on the other hand, uses less memory, does not require a boot-up, needs only 2MB to trend data and is not subject to hardware tampering.  

Additionally, it cannot be infected by a virus from the Internet.  

A Windows CE system has the advantage however, of running user selected software in applications such as Word, Excel, Adobe Acrobat, PDF and MPEG (Video).  

Many users desire to run a program to show machine operation or key maintenance issues. Others want to embed the Operating or Maintenance Manual as a PDF file. There are as many unique applications as memory available to run them.
