Planar Systems Inc. has announced the addition of two new 15-inch touchscreen displays to the company's PT line. The PT1520MU and the PT1510MX are targeted primarily for point-of-sale (POS) and self-service applications in retail, hospitality and food service environments.

For applications requiring increased durability, PT1520MU features a sturdy deskstand, which allows the monitor to be tilted from 0 to 90. The device 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 350cd/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, 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 suitable for use in environments that require optimal performance under challenging conditions, such as restaurants, retail stores or hospitality environments.

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.

"Like Planar's existing suite of high-performance displays, these new touchscreen monitors will enable VARs and integrators to design a solution that best suits customers' business objectives," said Mark A. Ceciliani, VP and general manager of Planar Systems' commercial business unit. "We have differentiated our touchscreen offerings to give channel partners the right options to satisfy customers' needs, ultimately helping them create sales opportunities wherever touchscreen technology is needed."

Planar's PTMU line is available in 15-, 17- and 19-inch formats. The PT1520MU and PT1510MX are currently available an MSRP of $599 and $489, respectively.
