METHUEN, MA — 3M Touch Systems announces the availability of the 3M MicroTouch System SCT7650EX, 3Mâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s next-generation, price-competitive surface capacitive touch solution for vandal-prone, heavy-use environments.
Three key product features offer display integrators an economic, user-safe, easy to seal, robust touch solution for unattended public applications such as ATMs, kiosks, and vending machines. First, the 3M MicroTouch System SCT7650EX is now up to 40% less expensive than 3Mâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s current 3M MicroTouch ToughTouch II system. Second, the SCT7650EX touch system still features optically-clear laminated glass-on-glass construction which provides superior impact resistance and 86.5% light transmission for brighter, crisper display images. And finally, now the SCT7650EX touch system uses a conductive adhesive-bonded flexible circuit tail in place of the traditional solder connections and wire leads designed to facilitate a superior liquid and dust seal between the touch sensor and display bezel.
The 3M MicroTouch Sensor SCT7650â€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s laminated construction withstands the EN/UL 60950-1 impact resistance test and provides the necessary surface durability for most unattended, public-access environments. If surface breakage occurs due to extraordinary impact, the lamination helps isolate the glass shards between the touch surface and LCD to protect the user. In addition to providing high impact strength, the sensor construction can also include 3M Vikuiti Advanced Light Control Film (ALCF), which increases application security by restricting the display viewing angle and helping keep sensitive data private.
