1291L 12 inch Open-Frame

The Elo 1291L 12" open-frame LCD touch display features a slim design and narrow outside dimensions due to the state-of-the art energy-saving LED backlight, using less electricity to operate and generating less heat. Featuring a brilliant wide viewing angle panel, the 1291L instantly grabs and holds the users’ attention for kiosks, casino and amusement, retail self-service, and industrial automation.

This compact touch display is “designed for touch” with proven Elo expertise and reliability built in. The 1291L provides stable “drift-free” operation with outstanding image clarity and light transmission—for accurate touch responses and vivid images. The touchscreen is sealed against dirt, dust and liquids, which simplifies integration into the final enclosure. Long-lasting product availability can be expected as the design and tooling is controlled by Elo specifications.

Available with a choice of industry leading touch technologies, in single- or multi-touch technology, including IntelliTouch single-touch surface acoustic wave (SAW) touchscreen technology, and Elo’s latest projected capacitive (PCAP) 2GS (two glass solution) multi-touch with Zero-bezel, offering pristine optical clarity and touch durability.
