Our customer who is using MES heavily uses either ELO and 3M Microtouch. Brand doesn't really matter. These are connected to standard PC's, but you might want to create some protection and insure good air flow depending on your environment. These people have not tried tablets or iPads. I know Intermec has some tablet-like devices.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Shop Touch Screens & Data Collection
This may seem a bit off-topic, however it's tied to purchasing Infor's MES application.
Is anyone using touch tablets in the shop that they would recommend? And how did you mount/protect them?
We currently run old Intermec terminals with DCA (DCSI/Highjump).
The guys are pretty rough on these terminals, so I'm hestitant to put some IPads or Droids out there by themselves.
The plan is to deply these devices for transactions & dispatch instructions
- not dwg retrieval or other MES activities.
I'm looking at Panasonic's ToughPad A1 as an example, but then I still need to anchor it.
Thanks for your time & input...james
