3M™ MicroTouch™ Display M1500SS (15")

15-in LCD touch display with industry-proven user features

MicroTouch™ M150 Touch Monitor

The 3M MicroTouch Display M1500SS 15" LCD Touch Monitor delivers maximum touch stability. The patented design uses a spine, yoke and positive locking mechanism to keep the display head in place under rapid transactional input. A keyhole pattern in the base provides additional security and stability when needed.

The M1500SS uses the 3M™ MicroTouch™ System SCT3250EX (surface capacitive touch technology) which provides superior optics, durability from contaminants like dust, liquid and grime and speed for high transaction based environments.

All-Glass, One-Layer Solution

  • 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
