Fremont, CALIF—September 22, 2009 -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., announces the PMD line of medical grade touch panel displays, from 15” to 19” with a selection of 5-wire resistive or Elo’s surface acoustic wave (SAW) touch screen technologies. Portwell’s PMD LCD touch monitor series meet the stringent medical safety standards and are the ideal human-machine interfaces for digital radiography, X-ray, ultrasound imaging system, point-of-care/medical computer cart, PACS workstation and pharmacy POS systems.

•    Reliable and excellent image quality
•    High degree of mechanical and electrical stability

Ease of Use
“When it comes to simplifying a potentially complex user interface, there is nothing easier than touch,” says Derek Leung, American Portwell Technology’s product specialist. “Users just point to what they want.  It’s fast, it’s safe, it reduces error and it speeds up training and application familiarity. In many cases, touch even cuts through the language barriers. So, the addition of the PMD LCD touch monitor series to its expanding family of medical embedded computing solutions was the natural choice for a forward-thinking company like Portwell,” Leung adds.

Versatile Inputs
The PMD series can be custom made to accept a variety of signals input from BNC, standard VGA, S-Video and Composite to DVI analog. In addition to the PMD standard series, Portwell also offers custom touch monitors with higher brightness as well as fast response rates.

High Clarity Touch Panel
Product models with Elo’s patented SAW touch screen technology feature a durable, scratch-resistant glass surface with superior image clarity, resolution and light transmission.

Cost-Effective Touch Panel
Product models with 5-wire resistive touch screen technology feature a durable surface that resists contaminants and chemical spills.
