Specifically designed for POS systems, this monitor features a five-wire resistive touchscreen with USB touchscreen interface, has a brightness of 350 cd/m, and is designed to be easily integrated in a variety of environments for a range of applications without compromising operation.
  • To further meet requirements for cost efficiency, Planar's PT1510MX was designed specifically to deliver a lower price-point for a variety of applications. Compatible with POS, thin-client and PC systems, the PT1510MX includes a five-wire resistive touchscreen and dual serial RS-232/USB user interface, making it ideal for use in environments that require optimal performance under challenging conditions, such as restaurants, retail stores or hospitality environments.
  • Using reliable, resistive touchscreen technology, both the PT1520MU and PT1510MX continue to deliver the same optimal performance as Planar's current touchscreen offerings. Resistive touchscreen technology is a highly-durable solution that does not require recalibration when environmental conditions change. These monitors are ideal for public-facing applications since they can withstand harsh environments.
