As we’ve talked about in other posts, our touch screen displays use resistive touch technology because of its many benefits to the industrial user. One of the most important of these is the fact that resistive sensors are pressure sensitive, which means that a gloved hand, a stylus, or most anything else can trigger a touch.

While most industrial HMI applications use interface screens designed to simply press with your finger (meaning, large buttons), we have some customers who require a stylus for increased accuracy. Over the years, we’ve recommended PDA Panache styluses to many users. We’ve found the company’s simple and sturdy designs well suited for many industrial environments.

While these units do not have many of the features usually associated with industrial designs (no legacy I/O, no case heat sinks), the fact that they are very small, relatively low cost, and only sip power make them appealing in some situations.
