First on the list is the touch sensor of the touch screen pos. This panel is the one that responses to touch. There is a system that is used in these touch sensors though it must be noted that the most common is the resistive system. There are also surface acoustic wave systems as well as capacity system used in mobile phones. In general, these sensors run on electrical current where touching can cause change in the voltage. This voltage then travels in the system and sends signals in the area where the touching took place.
Another important component of the touch screen pos is the controller. This is basically a hardware component that effectively controls and converts the changes in the voltage caused by the touching which the device whether it is a mobile phone, a tablet computer or a touch screen pos intelligently receives and interprets.

Last but definitely not the least among the three touch screen pos component is the software which is basically it brains.
