faytech 10” Touchscreen-Monitor V2

Posted by – August 1, 2014

Last year, I posted a 48-minute tour at the faytech touchscreen factory.

Here is the latest version (V.2) of faytech´s 7”-12″” Touchscreen Monitor Series has numerous detail improvements including lockable standard connections, a unique cable channelling back cover and mounting frames for machine and wall mount integration. Additionally each model has faster start up and reaction times because of an improved controller chipset.

The series retains its features including: LED backlights, 4-wire resistive touch panel, extra robust components, extended current input (8-36V), VGA+HDMI ports, three video inputs, wall mountable, a high-quality pedestal, and extended temperature range. Each Touchscreen Monitor comes with faytech’s 100% guarantee of no defective pixels, and is suitable for 24/7 operation.

The high resolution support (e.g. 1080p, 1920×1200 pixels) of these faytech touchscreens make them the perfect choice for a wide variety of applications. Some of these include: use as a surveillance monitor when combined with a HTPC or with security cameras; as control panels in the industrial area; in kiosk systems; as cash monitor or information terminals; for machine control; home automation; on farm machinery; on forklifts in distribution centers; wind turbine controls; telematics in transportation systems and in many other areas.

The integrated touch panel is reliable and accurate. The touch function is quickly established via the USB port of your PC, while industrial users can connect the touch function through the serial port. faytech includes touchscreen drivers for popular Microsoft (CE, WinXP, Vista), Mac and Linux operating systems. For Win7 and Win8 operating systems, no driver installation is needed because the MER4485 chipset used in faytech´s in-house designed touch controller supports Login using virtual keyboard and immediate use of windows gestures after Login. This makes starting and using Windows 8 incredibly easy. Embedded systems like e.g. the raspberry Pi are also supported.

Customization is available for project customers (e.g. higher brightness, brightness sensor, IP protection classes, webcam, scanners, printers, capacitive and SAW touch panels, etc.). See more information about faytech products at www.faytech.com

Posted by – July 27, 2014

I filmed Eken many times and on January 11th 2012 at their booth it was the first time I heard about Allwinner, Eken was the first Tablet company I had seen implementing the Allwinner A10. This probably means that Eken has a close relationship with Allwinner to always implement their newest processors early into their tablet manufacturing.
