MediaMatrix just introduced the sTouch 7 Touch-Screen Controller. Featuring a Power over Ethernet (PoE), the 7-inch IP65-compliant intelligent touch screen uses Projective Capacitive (PCAP) anti-UV, anti-glare touch control interface. The screen has a resolution of 1024×600 and a 16:9 aspect ratio, as well as brightness of 500 cd/m2 and a 700:1 contrast ratio. An Apollo Lake Intel Celeron processor (2 MB cache, up to 2.4 GHz) provides capacity, while supporting the Windows 10 IoT Enterprise industrial operating system. Onboard M.2 SSD storage of 32GB plus 4GB DDR3L RAM are included.

The sTouch 7 enables network connectivity via two GbE RJ45 network interfaces or optional selected Wi-Fi supporting IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/b/ac. Multiple USB-2 and USB-3 ports (two each) allow for general purpose control and monitoring that’s fully supported by PCA’s MediaMatrix nWare and Kiosk2Go audio-video and control software suite.

To support remote configuration across the connected network, the sTouch 7 can be powered over ethernet from a single cable drop connected to a PoE-capable network switch supporting IEEE 802.3at on-board or an equivalent power injector.

Alternatively, the unit can be powered from an external universal 12V DC — 3A power supply. A power switch and reset button are included on the back-panel controls.

Weighing just 1.6 pounds unpackaged, the sTouch 7 can be easily installed with VESA mount points and separately purchased accessories, including a wall/surface mount, desktop stand, and a 19-inch equipment distribution frame.
