A SAW touchscreen consists of a glass panel, transducers, reflection strips and cables. The transducers, cables and the reflection stripes are located on the front surface. The SAW controller sends electrical signals to transmitting transducers of both the X and Y axes. The transducers convert these electrical signals from the controller into ultrasonic waves which are then reflected by the reflector arrays and sent across the front, rear and side surfaces. These waves are then reflected back to the receiving transducers by another set of reflector array on each opposite side of the surface. The receiving transducers will convert the waves into electrical signals and feed them back to the controller. When the screen is touched, the finger absorbs a portion of the wave passing across the surface of the panel. The resulted change in ultrasonic wave frequency will be detected and a coordinate is calculated. This process happens independently for both the X and Y axes. Features:  High clarity and resolution  Drift-free operation  Free of maintenance  Durable and scratch-resistant  Sizes ranging from 8” to 42”  Sealable, anti-vandal, anti-glare optional  Do not get affected by external electric noise Applications:  Gaming/Amusement machines  Automations  Medical equipment  Automated cash dispenser  Financial Field SAW Touchscreen Surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology uses ultrasonic waves that pass over the touchscreen panel. When the panel is touched, a portion of the wave is absorbed. This change in the ultrasonic waves registers the position of the touch event and sends this information to the controller for processing.
