Infrared frames – the ability to create a touch screen yourself. The device is used to adapt the monitor and turn it into an interactive panel. This allows you to use multi-touch technology with displays that do not support this technology.
The frame looks like an overlay. Installing this equipment allows you to turn a regular computer monitor or LCD display into an interactive device. After that, several users will be able to work with it. High resolution images will be displayed on the screen. When you tap an item on the screen, the user selects one of the actions.
The frame can be fixed on the outside of any surface. This simplifies the interaction with system components and does not require large costs. Frames are cheaper. The functions are not inferior to full-fledged interactive panels.
Features of technology
Infrared sensor technology is the use of world rays to display commands used by the user. Infrared rays are created in the form of a grid, which is located along the entire surface. These components capture the user’s touch in a certain range. As a result, the coordinates where the action was called are transmitted. The points of contact are calculated when the rays are interrupted.
Infrared panels can support touch from multiple users. The dimensions of the panel do not exceed 150 inches. It is also possible to order equipment for the individual characteristics of a particular screen. Commands are displayed on the panel by touch with the hand or stylus. The rays are designed to react with a certain weight. This protects the system from improper response. The accuracy of signal detection depends on the sensitivity of the surface and the technology used. Each developer chooses these parameters independently. Depending on this, the price of the product is set.
Infrared panels are well-transmitted, so they have a long period of use. At the same time it is necessary to protect the device from direct sunlight. Otherwise, the sensitivity of the LEDs located on the edges of the frame will decrease. Infrared technology can interact with screens that have a high resolution.
The work of the framework is based on a certain principle. LEDs are located along the perimeter of the entire frame. They generate light sources that form a grid around the perimeter. Sensors are also built into the design. They respond to light rays, as well as to the touch of solid objects in a certain range. This allows you to correctly identify the signal to reduce the risk of incorrect recognition of user action. After applying the touch coordinates, the signal is transmitted to a PC or terminal. In this way, data is processed and certain actions are performed, depending on what the user has chosen.
Framework usage options
The infrared frame can be used in conjunction with other equipment. It is a tool for work or entertainment that is common in businesses, educational institutions or shops. The framework allows you to opt out of using I / O devices. To perform the action, just touch the screen. Working with electronic devices is similar to interacting with tablets or smartphones.
The framework allows you to create your own touchscreen with minimal cost. They are often used instead of special touch films. The frame is dismantled at any time if it has completed its task. The interactive frame is easy to connect. To do this, simply place it on the display surface. Next is the connection to the mains. A large selection of different devices allows you to choose an individual option to achieve your goals. Depending on the needs of the user, a certain installation option is selected.
Advantages of technology
The framework is distributed in modern technical equipment. This can be explained by the wide functionality and different options. Among the advantages of the interactive framework are the following:
Easy to install. Just select the appropriate size panel and install it on the display. No need to install special software or drivers. Once connected to the network, you can start the device immediately to perform the tasks.
Significant reaction speed. The touch frame allows you to quickly process the touch. Multiple user touches are supported.
No inactive zones. Each area of the screen responds to touch.
Large selection of standard sizes. It is also possible to order a device with the necessary operating parameters.
Preserve image quality. There are no extraneous elements, glare or other obstructions on the screen that may interfere with the perception of the image.
Ability to control with gestures.
Recognize not only the hand, but also the stylus and other solid objects.
The equipment maintains a high resolution. This allows you to play back a picture with 4K or Full HD.
There are also minimum energy costs – no more than 2V, which saves electricity. You do not need to connect additional energy sources. All peripherals are connected via USB. The technique is characterized by resistance to temperature changes.
Touch frame selection
To choose the optimal model of the interactive frame, you need to pay attention to the diagonal. The range has diagonals up to 80 inches. It is also possible to order equipment based on individual requirements. The ordered device will correspond to separate features of the screen.
You should also pay attention to the relationship between the parties. Standard options are presented. The touch frame is mounted on top of the monitor. It connects via USB. You can then use the device. ELPIX provides each client with the opportunity to choose the ideal solution to achieve their goals.
