ELO 1541LTE Connectivity Elo TouchSystems

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

MENLO PARK, California - 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.

Warranty and Availability:

The 1541L open-frame touchmonitor is backed by a three-year warranty and 40 years of touchscreen experience. The new Elo TouchSystems 1541L open-frame touchmonitor is now available for shipping worldwide.
