3M MicroTouch Display C1700SS
The Clear Choice for Optics, Reliability, and Ease of Integration
The 3M MicroTouch Display C1700SS (17”), a robust metal chassis
display using 3M's industry-standard surface capacitive touch technology, provides a durable, optically-enhanced, and cost competitive alternative to 5-wire resistive displays used in industrial automation equipment and kiosk enclosures. The C1700SS display offers
multiple mounting options to make integration easy and a variety of
bezel options for sealing against liquids and other contaminants.
The Clear Choice
The C1700SS display utilizes an all-glass surface capacitive touch sensor
with the proprietary 3M ClearTek Hard Coat to deliver superior durability,
91.5% light transmission, 225-nit brightness (with touch sensor), 500:1
contrast ratio and an ultra-fast 5.4 millisecond touch contact time.
Multiple Mounting and Bezel Options
Multiple mounting and bezel options enable customers to meet their
application needs at minimal cost. The C1700SS display offers a 75mm
VESA pattern to provide arm mounting capability for industrial automation
equipment. This minimizes the capital expenditure needed to upgrade
equipment with touch. L-brackets are included for installations requiring
the touch display to be fully enclosed.
The C1700SS display offers two bezel options. The Slimline bezel
(optional) is flush with the edges of the display and is ideal for armmounted applications and is ideal for solutions that require a NEMA 1
seal rating. The Industrial Flanged bezel (optional), a metal-gasketed
bezel, enables kiosks or others enclosures to support NEMA 4X / IP66
seal ratings.
Cost Effective
The C1700SS display uses an all-glass touch sensor with no moving
parts, whereas 5-wire resistive solutions rely on compressing the top
film layer against a conductive coating to recognize touch. Since force is
required to activate a resistive touch sensor it is susceptible to mechanical
wear and the appearance of “Newton Rings” which can potentially reduce
product life and optical performance.
The C1700SS touch display operates reliably in the presence of on-screen
contaminants and carries a 3-year “unlimited touches” warranty.
Recommended Applications
• Industrial Automation
• Self Service
• Hospitality
• Security Systems
• Point-of-Information (POI)
• Home Automation
All-Glass, One-Layer
• Provides 91.5% light transmission as compared to 80% for certain 5-wire resistive solutions
• Unaffected by UV light that can cause degradation of optics and yellowing of film-based touch sensors over time
• No moving parts improves reliability
• Inherently free from the appearance of “Newton Rings”
3M ClearTek Hard Coat
• Proprietary coating is uniformly heat infused into the glass creating a non-permeable barrier for increased
scratch and chemical resistance
• Low surface energy coating promotes smooth finger drag
• Unaffected by surface contaminants
Total Touch Solution
• Unlike other touch display manufacturers that utilize 3rd party touch sensors, electronics, and or software in their design, 3M owns, understands, and warranties the entire system for an unlimited amount of touches for 3 years
