DUS-A series is our flagship model for PCAP touch screen with glass/glass structure, and we have completed development of all the models in this product lineup in 2020. In the meantime, many of our customers who would like to use our weather-resistant glass/glass touch screen outdoors desire guarantee of operation under more lower temperatures. In order to meet such request, we conducted more severe temperature verification tests to prove the high environmental durability of our products.

DUS-A series already has a function to reduce UV damage to LCD with DMC's original UV-absorbing structure. (*Note 1) With this improvement of temperature range specifications added, now we are confident in supporting totally outdoors applications, which are difficult for other competitive products.

Recently there has been increasing demands for rugged touch screens for outdoors applications such as EV power supply units, home delivery boxes, construction machinery, and agricultural machinery. DUS-A series covers wide range of world environments, from strong sunlight with heat to extreme cold environments.

In addition, we have compatible controllers "DUSx200 Series" with moisture-proof insulating coating added for still colder environment.
