Touch Screen Tablet PC used to control Industrial Sewing Machine

People often ask me to describe some of the cooler ways our customers use our Touch Screen Tablet PCs. It's easy to describe the pen mobile pen applications, but for some reason, people have a harder time understanding how our touch screens are used.

So as the first in a series, I'm going to showcase how our tablets are being used by some of the system integrators and Value Added Resellers (VARs) in our dealer channel. In this case, the end solution is called the Intelliquilter™ which uses the Sahara Slate PC as a control panel for industrial quilting machines. Until recently, this system integrator has been utilizing the Sahara i215 as a component of the whole solution, but I know that he in the process of switching to the Sahara i412T.

Click Here and Here to see the Intelliquilter in action. I can't promise that the subject matter will know your socks off, but I think you'll be impressed by how the Sahara Tablet is used as the main controller for this heavy duty machinery as well as the touch interface that controls the software. Important to note is that although the demonstrator uses a stylus, this solution uses a resistive touch screen. With the resistive touch screen, the user can activate the screen with a passive stylus or direct finger contact.
