How to Measure Minimum Facing Angle(MFA) with our measuring system

By William Lee | December 13, 2017 | 0 Comments

The video we are currently watching is a test footage of Iron, which is based on our state-of-art IR technology in outdoor environments. By using the equipment, the receiving part of the touch module and sunlight are positioned in a straight line almost close to 0 degrees. The reason for this arrangement is to test…

What are our state of art technologies applied to the outdoor environments?

By William Lee | December 11, 2017 | 0 Comments

To eliminate sunlight interference in outdoor environments, we have used the innovative optical filter technologies. These state of the art filter technologies will eliminate sunlight interferences and provide multi-touch operations in the outdoor environment. The three filters we used follow: Anti-Solar Filter is the polarized filter removing the direct sunlight, which is incoming to the…

Three Things that System Engineers Should Consider for Cost Reduction when Installing Outdoor IR Touch Systems.

By William Lee | November 21, 2017 | 0 Comments

Recently we introduced three articles (found below*). New systems have begun to be introduced to provide various services to customers in an outdoor environment. For example, Subway and McDonald’s have recently installed a new ordering system in their stores. The reason for installing these systems in the outdoor environment is that a new paradigm called…

Conditions that Should Be Considered on IR touch screens in Worst-Case Scenarios

By William Lee | November 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

The specification of current IRON products is as follows: In other words, the touch screen size should be 46 inches to 55 inches and the durability against sunlight interference is that MFA (Minimum Facing Angle) is 5 degrees at 150,000 Lux. When the MFA is 5 degrees, the touch error would be estimated to 2.8…

What are the criteria for IR touch screens for reliability under solar interference?

By William Lee | November 19, 2017 | 0 Comments

  An infrared (IR) touch technology is a method of selecting an arbitrary wavelength (IR transmission wavelength) from an infrared wavelength of 700 nm to 1000 nm. It also detects touch by only sensing the IR transmission wavelength in the receiver. This is a simple and reliable touch technology. However, the infrared wavelength used here…

Kiosk: Invitation to the Fourth Industrial Revolution with Cutting Edge Technology

By William Lee | November 18, 2017 | 0 Comments

Nowadays, it is not difficult to meet a touch screen ordering system at restaurants like McDonald and Subway. The emergency of such systems including various contents and technologies may be the beginning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and it is up to us to respond to customers. It is true that there are a lot…
