Yes, Hope Industrial touch screens use resistive technology, which is pressure-sensitive and can be used with any type of stylus, as long as it is not sharp or rough (which could damage the touch screen surface). We have also tested some specific stylus models that are suited for an industrial environment. More information is available on our blog.
After initial setup, the touch screen should not require periodic re-calibration. Installing new drivers could erase a previous calibration and at time re-calibration is done by preference since some users prefer a different calibration style (e.g.: pointer centered on the finger-tip vs. centered on the finger).
Drivers are available for a wide variety of current and legacy operating systems, including all major Windows versions, Microsoft Embedded operating systems, Apple Mac, and many others. A full list and downloadable drivers are available in our support section.
Yes. Our touch screen drivers allow multiple displays to be connected to a single PC whether in mirroring mode (multiple screens showing the same desktop) or extended desktop (a single desktop stretched across multiple displays).
Our Windows drivers allow each touch screen to be calibrated independently whether you are using USB or Serial for connection to the PC. Once configured, the cursor will follow your finger to any connected touch screen. For configuration help or more information, please contact our support group for assistance.
Support for Linux-based operating systems is available through both native drivers, and by using driver-less methods that rely on the HID device compatibility of our touch screens. A full review of the available methods is available on our blog.
You may also contact our support group for information specific to your environment and applications.
