The SignatureGem® LCD 1x5 models are our smallest, more rugged electronic signature capture pads. Featuring a tempered glass LCD display, these models show the signature on the signature pad, as well as the computer screen.


SignatureGem® LCD 1x5 includes all the high-quality features of our electronic signature pad with the added feature of an LCD interactive display, allowing users to see "electronic ink" under the pen tip as they sign as well as navigate and display text and graphics. The wide signing area and rugged tempered glass signing surface make this a versatile pad for the most demanding applications.


The Backlit LCD model has a 1" x 5" transflective LCD screen with a bright backlight for improved viewing in any ambient lighting conditions.

*Signatures appear on the pad screen under-the-pen as the user signs. In addition, the LCD display can be used to display information to the user, and can also display on-screen buttons, hot-spots and checkboxes.

All our SignatureGem LCD range are now fitted with e-Tether pen. These "active" pens draw their power from the tether to the unit (which derives its power from the computrer connection). This does away with the need for batteries to drive the pen.

The "-BSB" and "-BBSB" models are Virtual Serial devices. Our "-BSB" and "-BBSB" signature pads are the recommended option for Remote Desktop, Citrix, and VDI environments. "-BSB" and "-BBSB" signature pads can also be used in a local environment.

Essentially the pads are Serial Devices with an integrated Serial-to-USB convertor, meaning that the attachment of the units is to an available USB socket on the PC or Terminal. Supported operating systems are Windows (local environment usage), or Windows, embedded Windows, Linux and MAC OSX 10.3 and above (in Citrix, Termianl Service or XenApp/RDC environments).




This model has a three-year Manufacturer's Warranty. However, even after this warranty period has passed (or if the repair is outside the terms of the warranty) we can offer a lifetime service to repair or refurbish the unit (if possible) for a modest charge. 


The "-R" suffix, common to all our products denotes a product that is RoHS compliant. RoHS, also known as Lead-Free, stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of six hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. All applicable products in the EU market after July 1, 2006 must pass RoHS compliance. RoHS impacts the entire electronics industry and many electrical products as well.

We supply free software and tools to enable the successful adoption of our signature pads into your business.

Our free e-signature software supplied with every unit includes plug-ins for common office applications (Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Adobe Acrobat), and free software development toolkits for developed-integration into your own applications.



In addition, we also offer many worked examples of technologies and applications, and developer and end-user "how-to" guides. Developers have found these invaluable in experiencing working solutions rather than theoretical code. We provide code samples, and snippets that can be used in your own applications.


We have some ready-to-use components to make life easier for application developers. These include an Active-X control to manage signature capture, and a "SigCompare" utility that allows you to compare signatures captured with our technology "live", seeing the manner and style of the created signature in addition to the flat image.



We have a free technical support service at both end-user and development levels, and will be happy to assist any user or developer with successfully developing with, implementing and using our technologies.
