Touch screen monitor with 800xA
In one of our project ,Customer requirement is to have a touch screen monitor with 800xA workstation.
Can anyone share the details of any touchscreen monitor make and model used with 800xA in their projects .
It depends where you want to place the touchscreen. For placement in a panel on the plant floor you'll need a hardened screen of some kind. I've seen Allen Bradley industrial touchscreen PC's used for this purpose.
For use in a control room environment, I suspect pretty much any PC with a touchscreen will do. Get the biggest screen you can find.
I will caution you that operators will typically grow to hate using a touchscreen. The 800xA application isnt really optimised for touchscreen use. On screen keyboards are awkward to use, clicking exactly the right spot is difficult, if not impossible, on smaller screens and users typically end up "doing" something when all they really wanted to do was point out something to their mate.
