Practical approach to rugged TFT displays

In this case study, Relec explains how new display solutions blend durability with modern technology to improve patient interactions at first point of contact.

Significant change is taking place in the dynamic environment of medical receptions. Traditional reception desks are evolving, thanks to technological advancements. Relec Electronics has introduced a range of rugged TFT displays with PCAP touch panels, designed for surgery reception kiosks.

Imagine a typical surgery. A reception area witnessing a range of interactions throughout the day. Traditional systems often struggle to keep up with demand, leading to wear and tear. The goal was finding a solution that met the technological needs of a modern reception while withstanding frequent use. The customer was looking for a 10.1in display with simple electrical and mechanical connections.

Relec’s solution is rugged TFT displays equipped with PCAP touch panels and HDMI inputs. The displays are designed to endure, ensuring the technology patients interact with is cutting-edge and robust. Ease of use and durability were paramount to this application.

The HDMI input simplifies integration of the display into the kiosk, making life simple for the design engineer. This plug-and-play functionality eliminates common technological hurdles, speeding up the design-in process.

The VESA mounting system offers a straightforward approach to integrating the displays into kiosks. This feature ensures standard production runs or modifications for bespoke reception areas are not complex tasks, fitting into various spaces with ease.

The rugged design of the PCAP touch panels is central to these displays. They are made to withstand frequent use, ensuring the screens remain responsive and functional, even in high-traffic areas.

With Relec’s displays integrated into surgery reception kiosks, the design process has undergone a significant transformation. Engineers, tasked with crafting these vital points of contact, now have a partner who can supply efficiently and reliably for their display needs.

The HDMI input and VESA mounting features simplify the physical and digital integration of displays into kiosks. Engineers can quickly incorporate these displays into their designs without need for extensive modifications or custom fittings. This plug-and-play capability reduces development time and allows greater focus on innovative aspects of kiosk design.

Recognising the importance of longevity in high-traffic environments, the rugged PCAP touch panel design ensures that the displays withstand repeated use. This durability is a crucial factor for engineers, providing them with confidence that the products they design will offer sustained performance and reliability, reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.

Beyond the physical product, Relec’s expertise in display design process, from concept through to completion, means engineers have access to knowledgeable advice and guidance. This collaborative approach helps in navigating challenges and seizing opportunities forinnovation in kiosk design.
