Resistive touch technology consists of a glass or acrylic panel that is coated with electrically conductive and resistive layers. The thin layers are separated by invisible separator dots. When operating, an electrical current moves through the screen. When pressure is applied to the screen the layers are pressed together, causing a change in the electrical current and a touch event to be registered.
Resistive type touch screens are generally the most affordable. Although clarity is less than with other touch screen types, resistive screens are very durable and able to withstand a variety of harsh environments. This type of screen is recommended for POS, restaurants, control / automation systems, medical use, and more.
