Longevity Tig welder with a digital control panel?

I have a thermal arc 185, it has a digital touch pad control panel... ive seen a couple manufacturers are starting to produce these.. Some dont like the control pad, but i really like it, and that was actually one of the selling points for me..

wondering if Longevity has any future plans on producing a unit with the digital touch pad controls?


edited and added a pic of my ThermalArc 185 touchpad control panel.

We will be coming out with a few digital control panel machines shortly. They will feature TIG and MIG machines with such controls. We hope to have more details shortly.

My personal opinion but I think digital control panels suck.I mean as it stands want to figure something out on my current machine, pop the cover off, this wire goes here the other goes to here....easy to service, done a few mods, easy to change settings with gloves..like it the way it is.

My opinion on the digital control. Panel machines is more to break hard to use with gloves splatter kills the panel and numerous other things that I can't think of at the moment
