In the dynamic environment of medical receptions, where efficiency is paramount, a significant change is taking place. The traditional reception desk is evolving, thanks to technological advancements. Relec Electronics, has introduced a range of rugged TFT displays with PCAP touch panels, designed for doctor’s surgery reception kiosks. This case study looks at how these displays blend durability with modern technology to improve patient interactions at the first point of contact. 


Understanding the Challenge

Imagine a typical doctor’s surgery: a reception area that sees a wide range of interactions throughout the day. Traditional systems often struggle to keep up with the high demand, leading to wear and tear. The goal was to find a solution that not only meets the technological needs of a modern reception but also withstands frequent use.  Our customer was looking for a 10.1” display with simple connections both electrically and mechanically.


Introducing Relec's Rugged Displays

Relec’s solution comes in the form of rugged TFT displays equipped with PCAP touch panels and HDMI inputs. Our 10.1″ displays are designed to endure, ensuring that the technology patients interact with is both cutting-edge and robust.  Ease of use and durability was paramount to this application and we were able to offer the following features: 

Feature 1: HDMI Input – Simplifying Technology

The HDMI input feature of these displays simplifies integration of hdmi display into the kiosk, making life simple for the design engineer. This plug-and-play functionality eliminates common technological hurdles, speeding up the design in process.
