3M™ MicroTouch™ Display M1700SS (17")

The Clear Choice for Optics, Durability, and Touch Stability

3M™ MicroTouch™ Display M1700SS (17")

The 3M MicroTouch Display M1700SS (17"), a purpose-built, surface capacitive touch display, provides a cost-competitive touch alternative to 5-wire resistive display solutions.

The display offers a stable base, highly durable touch screen, brilliant optics and a hidden cable management system, all in an elegant and simple-to-use design. This display easily integrates into numerous point-of-sale, PC, and thin client systems making it ideal for applications requiring long life, 24/7 uptime, and the assurance of a 3-year "unlimited touches" warranty.

The M1700SS 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
