Dolch Introduces the New RuggedTouch(TM)
Dolch Debuts New Harsh Environment Touch Screen Solution
San Diego, California, June 25, 2002 - Dolch, the world leader in delivering rugged computer solutions, is proud to introduce RuggedTouch and RuggedTouch Plus, industrial touch screen displays and workstations.
"While the demand for rugged touch screen products for industrial applications continues to grow, truly rugged touch screens that can not only survive, but excel, in extremely harsh and hazardous environments remain hard to find," said Jim Ciardella, President of Dolch. "As a rugged solution provider to some of the largest manufacturing companies in the world, Dolch understands the challenges they face. We've developed a new line of industrial touch screen displays and workstations designed for the worst environments. These touch screens are designed for high-pressure caustic wash downs. Scratches, gouges, even deep cuts won't effect the functionality of these touch screens and I challenge anyone to find a touch screen interface that is tougher and more reliable than our RuggedTouch."
The RuggedTouch is available with 12", 15" and 18" LCD displays. Bezel options include stainless steel for NEMA 4X applications and black powder coated steel for NEMA 4 and NEMA 12 applications. Additional options include direct sunlight readable upgrades.
The RuggedTouch Plus includes a rear mounted ATX computer with up to six expansion slots, an Intel Pentium® III 1.2GHz processor, 30GB hard drive and 256MB of RAM. Upgrade options are available.
All RuggedTouch products feature EnhancedInfrared(TM) touch displays, a technology designed specifically for harsh and hazardous applications. EnhancedInfrared touch screens maintain their calibration without drifting and are operationally immune to cuts or wear on the touch surface. In addition, the touch screen is covered by a comprehensive 5-year warranty.
Dolch addresses the need for remote computing with our exclusive RayFire(TM) digital fiber-optic video and data transmission system. The RayFire system allows the system's PC to be located anywhere - in most cases, a centralized, climate controlled room that allows for increased security and easy system configuration changes and upgrades.
Headquartered in Fremont, California, Dolch is the world leader in rugged, multi-slot portable industrial PC platforms. Dolch also manufactures rugged touch screen solutions, industrial enclosures and public access kiosk systems.
