Planar Systems, Inc. is adding two new 15-inch touchscreen monitors to the company's popular PT line. The PT1520MU and the PT1510MX, backed by Planar's three-year warranty, with free two-day advance replacement, are targeted primarily for point-of-sale (POS) and self-service applications in retail, hospitality and food service environments. For customers who want increased durability, Planar's PT1520MU features a sturdy deskstand which allows the monitor to be tilted from 0 to 90 degrees. The PT1520MU presents a wide selection of positioning angles, making POS and POP transactions more convenient for the end user. 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.

Planar's PU line is available in 15-, 17- and 19-inch formats.
