Caltron’s High-Definition LWT-215O Touch Screen Monitor Line Features Improved Visibility
New 21.5-inch Touchscreen Models Offer Resistive Touch Technology and Open-frame Design
January 18th, 2017
A choice of touch technologies and an open-frame design make Caltron Industries’ new 21.5” LWT-215O series the most versatile industrial touchscreen monitor available today.
Caltron has incorporated projected capacitive touch technology, found in today’s smart phones, into the LWT-215OC. P-Cap offers sharp images, a rugged screen that holds up well when used continually or when temperatures fluctuate, and “multi-touch capability,” in which images can be controlled by using more than one finger.
The LWT-215OC also allows for more than one person to use the screen at the same time, ideal for collaborative uses.
A companion model, the LWT-215OR, implements resistive touch technology, which responds to any object, including the finger or stylus. Resistive touch is cheaper, consumes less energy and is preferable when users must wear gloves, such as with medical applications.
These wide touchscreen monitors are particularly suited for additional applications that include:

Caltron’s familiar open-frame concept, which simplifies installation into existing systems, makes possible the LWT-215O series’ wide range of uses.
The 21.5 inch touchscreen of the LWT-215O is slightly smaller than Caltron’s discontinued 22-inch touchscreen, but has improved visibility for users. Jim Wang, president of Caltron Industries, says, “The boost in resolution from 1680x1050 to 1920x1080 results in the LWT-215O being a real HD panel. Viewing angles are wider, too.”
Wang also said that all LWT-215O models offer LED backlighting, environmentally superior to conventional cold cathode fluorescent lamp illumination. CCFL consumes more energy and employs mercury, found to be harmful to humans.
Another energy-saving feature is the elimination of noisy fans. In the LWT-215O, heat is ventilated through slots in the metal chassis.
