3M Touch Systems, Inc. announces that Digi-Key Corporation will expand its 3M MicroTouch line card by adding 17″ 19″, 20″, 22″ and 32″ wide-aspect ratio screen sizes to their existing ClearTek II touch system product set and by offering the ToughTouch II “ruggedized” touch system product.
The 3M MicroTouch ClearTek II touch system, 3M’s flagship touch product, has been the industry-standard for surface capacitive products for more than 20 years. Available in screen sizes ranging from 6.4″ to 32″, the ClearTek II product has many technology-leading characteristics in optical transmission, surface durability and wide operating/storage temperatures. Wide-aspect ratio touch sensors are now available to fit popular wide-screen LCD displays.
The ruggedized 3M MicroTouch ToughTouch II surface capacitive touch system is an impact-resistant version of the ClearTek II touch system created by laminating 4mm glass to the back of the touch sensor, making it an ideal solution for vandal-prone and harsh environments. This hybrid touch sensor has all the exceptional optical and reliability characteristics of the ClearTek II touch system, plus it complies with UL 60950 safety standards for impact breakage and is IP66 / NEMA 4 sealable against liquids and other on-screen contaminants.
