Rugged input with analytical instruments in sensitive environments

Rugged Touch in Sensitive Environments

Modern medical and laboratory equipment unlock the next frontier of medicine and research – but the threat of cross-contamination keeps low-tech disinfectants and wipes the perhaps most important tools among pioneering high-tech equipment. It does not have to be that way.

In sensitive environments such as laboratories, clean rooms and hospitals, the limitations of the consumer-grade touch technology used in everyday devices create significant hurdles for system integrators and cause inconveniences that affect employee productivity. For example, requiring EMI shielding and coatings from system integrators to meet application requirements while still requiring end users to remove gloves and repeatedly disinfecting the display surface.

Fortunately, there is a better option. Neonode's rugged touch technology provides an easily-integrated option to consumer-grade touch that addresses system integrators' engineering challenges and end users' frustrations.

In this white paper, we discuss the challenges of touch interaction in sensitive environments and how infrared-based rugged touch input addresses these challenges while also enabling innovative ways of interacting with equipment. You will learn why projected capacitive (PCAP) and resistive touch are often a poor fit for these types of environments, how to integrate rugged infrared touch in critical equipment and what advanced touch input methods infrared touch can enable.
