METHUEN, Mass. — 3M Touch Systems Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of 3M and manufacturer of touch technology, will showcase its line of MicroTouch products at the 2008 KioskCom Self-Service Expo and digital signage Show, from April 16-17 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Featured products include MicroTouch Dispersive Signal Technology (DST) touchscreens, MicroTouch CT 150 LCD enclosure monitors and MicroTouch ClearTek II capacitive touchscreens.
MicroTouch DST touchscreens offer display integrators a solution for large-format interactive applications, from 32-inch to 46-inch screen sizes, that require fast, accurate, reliable touch response. DST recognizes touch by interpreting bending waves within the glass substrate created by the contact of a finger or stylus on the glass. Since bending waves are unaffected by on-screen contaminants and moderate surface damage, DST touchscreens work reliably for most public environments and applications, such as interactive digital signage, public way finders, point-of-information stations, corporate directories, retail product selectors, and conference room and education presentation systems. Further features of MicroTouch DST include operation unaffected by surface contaminants and “dynamic touch,” which ignores static objects on the screen and allows for multi-user touch capabilities.
MicroTouch CT150 monitors are designed for easy integration into kiosks, industrial enclosures and other installations where compact, touch-integrated displays are desired. Available in three bezel options to ensure maximum design flexibility, MicroTouch CT150 monitors feature an innovative design to provide a variety of mounting options and are equipped with a remote OSD module to simplify display adjustments. The LCD display module encompasses the ability to print-color match, making it an ideal option for use in photo kiosk applications. MicroTouch CT150 monitors use proven MicroTouch ClearTek II capacitive touch technology and MicroTouch EX II electronics, and are equipped to fully comply with European Union RoHS standards.
MicroTouch ClearTek II Capacitive touchscreens are designed to optimize system performance and provide a wear resistance up to fives times more durable than other capacitive touchscreens. ClearTek II capacitive technology is sealable, easy to integrate, and easy to clean. Additionally, the ClearTek II offers a superior optical quality of 91.5 percent light transmission, the highest capacitive touchscreen light transmission in the industry today. ClearTek II meets RoHS environmental compliance requirements, and is IP66 and NEMA4 rated to withstand dust and moisture. ClearTek II touchscreens are designed for a number of applications, including point-of-sale, casino gaming, entertainment, self-service kiosks and ATMs.
