We have touchscreen solutions available to work with most common operating systems, including DOS, Windows
3.1/95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP, Macintosh OS, and Linux. Third party software is also available for some products to allow our touch screen systems to work with Unix and other specialized systems
Our touch screen solutions generally interface to the PC via a serial port (RS-232) connection or a USB type connection. The serial port interface generally works with DOS, Windows, and Linux Systems. The USB port interface typically works with Windows 98/ME/2000/XP and Macintosh systems.
Our touchscreen solutions are supplied with software drivers that allow the touch screen to emulate a mouse in Windows or Macintosh systems. Because the touchscreen emulates a mouse, touching the screen is the same as clicking your mouse at the same point on the screen. This allows the touch screen to work with a vast amount of pre-existing mouse driven software. This also allows for simple development of new applications, because no additional code or knowledge is required to develop software for use with the touch screen. New touchscreen applications can be developed in the same way as mouse driven software.
