The main causes of industrial touch screen failure are screen hardware problems, wiring problems and system version BUG problems. If the industrial capacitive screen, check to see if the control card is broken, whether the appearance is damaged, and so on. Here are 10 tips to reduce the probability of industrial touchscreen failure. 

1. Use big buttons as a simple click interface. 


Dragging, double-clicking, scroll bars, drop-down menus, various windows or other factors will not only confuse some unskilled users, but also reduce the user's affinity with the product and reduce its efficiency. 

2. Run your application on full screen. 


Remove the file name bar and menu bar, so you can enjoy the benefits of running the entire screen. 

3. Use a bright background color (do not use black). 


Bright background colors can hide finger prints and reduce the visual impact of dazzling light. Other background colors keep our eyes on the screen image instead of reflecting it, even in areas where there are no icons and menu options. 

4. Users will get feedback as soon as they touch the screen. 


Immediate feedback is important to make the user confirm that the touch has been accepted. The response can be visual, such as a stereo button effect similar to a standard window button. Or you can respond with a sound, that is, any time the user touches the screen, a "click" or other sound will be heard. Make sure that the monitor clears the previous screen immediately and that the screen displays an hourglass icon (or other similar icon) before the next screen appears. 

5. Move the mouse cursor away so that the user can pay attention to the entire screen instead of the arrow. 


The mouse arrow on the screen makes the user wonder, how can I use this arrow to do what I want to do? Remove the arrow and the user's thinking and behavior changes from indirect to direct. In this way, the real power of the touchscreen is revealed. 

6. When you design an all-in-one self-service query machine, be sure to consider the following factors. 


Do you use an exhaust fan? Put the fan on top, just near the exit of the monitor. Minimize dust caused by walking and remove dust from the ground to prevent air from entering the monitor. Point the loudspeaker at your user's ear. Please use Elo to query the all-in-one touch display. Otherwise, you have to allow the monitor to vary in appearance and size, because they change very quickly. The monitor must be installed with a secure base so that it feels firm to the touch. Finally, choose a polish that can hide fingerprints. Do not use shiny stainless steel, chromium alloy and shiny black paint. 

7. Make your application interesting and fast. 


If the system is slow, the user is sure to walk away. By giving a quick response to their touch, you can lock their attention. High-speed systems will also reduce the incidence of sabotage. Image mode requires too much color and high resolution, which will only slow down the system. Using more colors is much more efficient than using high resolution. 

8. Digitalize the conversation with the user through the application (through the sound card). 


Because the human brain can accept sound and image at the same time, the user interface that can provide sound and touch response is almost magical. Better self-service machine applications take this knowledge to the extreme. 

9. Make your application have attractive packaging. 


Animation and large fonts help make self-service machines more attractive. In that case, the exterior design of the self-service machine should also be attractive and sturdy. 

10. Make the application intuitive, simple, and guide users as much as possible. 


Let specific people use your touchscreen as a test. If the user pauses because he doesn't understand, even for a while, you should figure out what needs to be improved.
