Can a normal MASSO-G3 controller be installed and used inside the MASSO Touch model?
The MASSO Touch model has special electronics to drive and control the LED screen. The normal MASSO-G3 model is designed to connect to VGA screens with a 15pin VGA connector and can't run LED/LCD screens.
NOTE: We have been getting a lot of requests for this and we are trying to see if there is a possibility of adding a small addon module to connect the VGA connector of the normal MASSO-G3 controller to the MASSO Touch screen. This will also require the software to be changed to support MASSO Touch capacitive touch drivers.
NOTE: For us to evaluate this option, if you would like to order MASSO Touch without the controller and install your existing MASSO-G3 controller, please email all your controller serial numbers on support.
Can the MASSO-G2 controller be installed and used inside the MASSO Touch model?
No, the MASSO Touch model has special electronics to drive and control the LED screen. The normal MASSO-G2 model is designed to connect to VGA screens with a 15pin VGA connector and can't run LED/LCD screens.
NOTE: Even if a small add-on module to connect the VGA connector of the MASSO-G2 controller to the MASSO Touch screen is made available, MASSO-G2 does not have the memory to add MASSO Touch capacitive touch drivers or screen layouts to support full touch features.
What is the resolution of the screen?
The screen resolution is the same as of normal G2 and G3 models, 1024x768 pixels.
What material is the enclosure made of?

The rear mounting plate is made of anodized aluminum.

The rear panel also has mounting holes and a cutout for wiring, the user should make sure to cover or close these during installation.
Will the normal MASSO-G3 and MASSO Touch software be different or will have different features?
Both the models will have exact same software features and user interface.

Both the models will have software updates released at the same time with same features added.
