    Windows 7 Compatible Touchscreens

    Consoles listed as "Windows 7 Compatible" have different guidelines for touchscreens. Please see this article for more information: Windows 7 Compatible External Touchscreens

     

    Classic Touchscreens

    Some ELO touchscreens are compatible. Since ELO model #s can be imprecise and change often, ETC does not specify a particular model. Instead we offer the following specifications:

    • ELO Accu-touch 5 wire resistive touch technology
    • A USB interface
    • All console products can support as many touchscreens as they support monitors, or mixed combinations of touchscreen and standard monitors.
    • Video Interface:
      • For Ion, Element, Congo Jr consoles which do not have a DVI splitter, Congo Kid, Eos Family RPUs without a DVI splitter, and Net3 RVIs without a DVI splitter, the following configurations are supported:
        • Dual DVI Monitors
        • Single DVI Monitor
        • Single VGA Monitor (Monitor 1) & Single DVI Monitor (Monitor 2)
        • Single VGA Monitor
      • For original Congo consoles, monitors must have a VGA interface.
      • For all other compatible products (including Eos, Gio, older Net3 RVI with splitter, and older Eos Family RPUs with splitter) VGA or DVI are acceptable.
    • Resolution:
      • For Eos, Gio, Ion, Element, Eos Family RPUs, & Net3 RVI running Eos Family, monitors should have a minimum resolution of 1280x1024.
      • For Congo, Congo Kid, Congo jr, Congo Lightserver, & Net3 RVI running Congo, monitors should have a minimum resolution of 1024x768
