Touch International Answers Market Need for 8-wire Resistive Touch Screen Drop-In Replacement



T8 Created for Solution Integrators and OEM Suppliers

AUSTIN, Texas (April 7, 2003) - Responding to customer demand, Touch International today announced the addition of T8, 8-wire resistive touch screen technology. T8 is designed for drop-in replacement to competitor offerings where 8-wire technology is used. Touch International is already delivering T8 product to Fortune 100 companies in America and Europe.

"8-wire resistive is not my first technology choice as our T6, patented 5-wire resistive technology, offers the same functionality and is certainly more durable, stated 15-year touch screen veteran, Michael Woolstrum. "At the same time, customer needs are our top priority. We value being the industry leader as the most responsive, experienced, solutions-oriented touch screen manufacturer."

Woolstrum contributes sustained 8-wire customer demand to the lagging economy, "many companies are keeping engineering teams lean and changing touch technology during the product lifecycle is often too costly to undertake."

T8 offers self calibration for sustained touch accuracy, chemically strengthened glass or polycarbonate support for improved breakage resistance, and pin-to-pin compatibility to competitor's products for easy drop-in replacement.

Touch International's T8 sensors compete with Dynapro (now 3M Touch Systems) and Gunze, a Japanese company. T8 is available in sizes 8.4 inches to 18.1 inches. Product options include choice of anti-glare or polished finish controllers to support most operating systems, including Windows, Dos Linux, Mac, and OS/2 and choice of USB or Serial (RS232).
