ELO TOUCHSYSTEMS LINE OF OPEN-FRAME TOUCHMONITORS GOES WIDER WITH THE ADDITION OF THE 1541L

-- New wide-aspect touchmonitor well-suited for commercial, entertainment and industrial environments --

MENLO PARK, Calif. - March 28, 2012 - TE Connectivity today introduced its Elo TouchSystems 1541L, one of the industry's first 15-inch open-frame LCD touchmonitors with an LED backlight, that features a 16:9 aspect ratio, suitable for commercial, industrial, gaming and retail applications. The 1541L expands the Elo family of touch solutions for gaming and amusement, information kiosks and self-service with flexible, energy-saving features. The 1541L also has a convenient, space-saving design that makes building touch solutions easier and more flexible for OEMs and system integrators.

"With this introduction, we're offering a 15-inch LCD open-frame touchmonitor that is a very attractive product," says Jim Witkowski, Product Manager at TE Touch Solutions. "Casino, retail and point-of-information (POI) applications are beginning to transition to the 16:9 wide-aspect ratio, and we expect this product to be a good fit for those markets. In addition, its wide-viewing angle and compact, mechanical design give kiosk integrators an edge in developing the most aesthetically pleasing products."

Elo TouchSystems 1541L Features and Benefits

The Elo TouchSystems 1541L features one of the industry's first open-frame LCD touchmonitors with a 16:9 aspect ratio, LED backlight and a 150° x 120° viewing angle. Other key features and benefits include:
* Compact size enables slimmer designs for narrower kiosks, with a portrait mode configuration for a larger display space in a smaller footprint
* Viewing angle of 150° x 120°, wider than most 15-inch open-frame touchmonitors, allowing colors to remain sharp and graphics to retain their integrity in both portrait and landscape modes
* State-of-the-art LED backlight replacing bulky, glass CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamps) for a slim design, reduced power consumption and lower heat production
* Three-year warranty

Touchscreen Options

The 1541L is available with either IntelliTouch Plus multi-touch surface acoustic wave touchscreen technology - a pure-glass standard of touch and widely used in kiosk and gaming applications that is resistant to scratches,
water and other contaminants, providing a clear, bright and long-lasting performance -- or AccuTouch 5-wire resistive touchscreen technology, a preferred solution for applications that demand reliability, input flexibility, and contamination resistance. AccuTouch touchscreens, with TE resistive technology, deliver a touch response that is drift-free and accurate in high-use applications.
