What does the customer say
“We are using the SCHURTER touchscreen in our K2MS Portal™ medical grade panel PC. We were already using a touchscreen in this product before we came in touch with SCHURTER. Since the launch of the K2MS Portal™ we have been seeking to improve the touchscreen performance. SCHURTER was the first company to offer the required PCAP performance together with the specific front glass integration requirements demanded by the application.
With the SCHURTER solution we now have a touchscreen with a better touch performance, especially a better accuracy and repeatability. We also looked for improvement of the mechanical integration, especially reducing the gap between the display and touch surface. SCHURTER gave us a very good advise. Our application was very specific given that the touchscreen was being used to replace one within an existing design. The design brief was clearly understood.
SCHURTER’s technical skills are excellent. If there were any uncertainties SCHURTER was quick to prototype or test to reduce technical risk and inform subsequent design-in decisions. This was very much appreciated by K2MS.
This solutions is now in production for a while and the deliveries are always in time. All together, I can recommend SCHURTER for complex touchscreen solutions. For us, SCHURTER is now an important and trusted supplier.”
