Resistive Touch Screen technology have evolved so much in the past few years and have enhanced the ways of sensing touch that it has become the economical choice of almost every industry and business.
A modern day resistive touch screen display consist of various thin layers, but the most vital of which are two transparent electrically resistive layers divided by a narrow space. These two resistive layers face each other with a little gap in between. The touchable screen has a coating on the base surface, beneath which there is a similar resistive layer on top of its substrate. These layers have conductive connections of which one is along the sides of the screen panel and the other is on the top and bottom. It's functioned so efficiently that the current is applied to one layer and intelligently sensed by the other one. With a pressure press of a finger or a stylus the action occur and the touch position on the resistive screen can be read.
Resistive touch screen displays are exceptionally resilient to rough and abusive usage, this characteristic makes it unique and ideal for high end applications. Because of its significant quality of resistance against dust, dirt, liquid and contaminants resistive touch screen displays are frequently the preferred choice of restaurants, hospitals, factories and ATM applications. An advantage to consider resistive touch screen technology is its adaptable behaviour and low cost that is why it is used by food service, retail points and industrial process units.
