All-in-one touchcomputers for medical-friendly solutions

TE Connectivity's ELO TouchSystems 19 and 22CM touchcomputers are designed for expanded interactivity in medical applications

09/25/2011


TE Connectivity announced the addition of two new products for medical-friendly solutions: the Elo TouchSystems 19CM and 22CM touchcomputers. Measuring 19-inches and 22-inches respectively, these all-in-one (AiO) systems complement the recently introduced 2400LM (24-inch) touchmonitor to round out the Elo TouchSystems family of devices built to help support the unique needs of medical environments and touch applications. Both the 19CM and 22CM meet UL60601-1 and IEC60601-1 certifications and have an IPX1 drip-proof rating. In addition, these AiO units feature an LED backlight for lower power consumption and heat generation, a slimmer profile with brighter images and higher contrast than the CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lights) backlights commonly used in most commercial systems.

Similar to the 2400LM, 1519LM and 1919LM touchmonitors, the CM-Series represents efficient, performance-driven and cost-effective solutions for System Integrators, Value-Added Resellers and Software Developers to consider integrating into their healthcare applications such as nursing stations, computer-aided therapy, electronic medical record keeping, paperless charting, patient self check-in / registration or point–of-information installations. Each model is available with the choice of three durable and reliable touchscreen technologies: iTouch zero-bezel surface acoustic wave, IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave or AccuTouch five-wire resistive touchscreens.

For applications like point-of-care, mobile medical carts and point-of-service, the 19CM and 22CM touchcomputers feature display panels with wide-viewing angles and a high contrast ratio for exceptional screen clarity and contrast – even in the brightest environments. Both models are compliant with multiple safety and electrical certifications, including EN 60601-1 for safety and, EN55022, EN55024, and EN 60601-1-2 for EMC. In addition, both the 19CM and 22CM are RoHS compliant, and include an enclosure design that is resistant to dripping water with an IPX1 rating, protecting the unit from liquid drops and spills. The two models are also available in white only for the aesthetics of healthcare environments.

Additional features include a USB/Serial combination touch controller, DVI, VGA and built-in speakers. Models also come equipped with a removable base and mounting features, including a VESA mount as well as wall- and arm-mounting options, providing installation flexibility for almost any architectural configuration. Power and monitor control functions can be locked-out to prevent tampering and speakers are built-in to enrich the audio experience.
