Planar Systems has announced the addition of two new touchscreen displays to its product lineup. Designed for use in a variety of retail, healthcare and government/education applications, the new PA1575R touchscreen system and PT2275SW touchscreen LCD are on display this week at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Convention & Expo in New York.

The PA1575R system with a 15-inch touchscreen computer is specifically designed for POS applications. It features compatibility with Microsoft Windows XP or WePOS operating systems, a fanless one GHz Intel Celeron processor, one GB memory and a resistive touch screen, which can be activated by a finger, gloved hand, credit card, pen or stylus. The PA1575R is also designed to accommodate a card swipe on the side.

The Planar PT2275SW 22-inch wide SAW touchscreen LCD is designed for smaller format digital signage applications or desktop applications requiring larger screen sizes. It features SAW (surface acoustic wave) technology, and is constructed with pure glass, which provides superior image quality, resolution and light transmission. The screen can also be activated with a finger, gloved hand or stylus.

The PA1575R and PT2275SW also incorporate specific enhancements designed to improve end-user interface, such as the ability to adjust the monitor from -5 to 90 degrees F to meet user preferences and a rugged desk stand to minimize accidental tipping.

“Touchscreen interfaces are becoming a pervasive technology,” said Rhoda Alexander, director of monitor research, iSuppli Corporation. “Having gained widespread adoption in handheld devices, touchscreens are becoming a key feature in all sorts of environments where humans interact with machines.”
