Touch Solutions Unveiled for POS and POI Systems

Publish date:

Tyco Electronics’ Elo TouchSystems business has launched the new B-Series touchcomputer family. The company says it answers the industry need for a single compact and retail-hardened touchcomputer platform to support countertop, pole- and wall-mounted applications.

The new B-Series portfolio consists of three highly configurable, ruggedized and cost-effective All-in-One (AiO) touch systems intended to support a wide range of Point-of-Service (POS) and Point-of-Information (POI) applications and environments.

The B-Series offers a scalable AiO platform for the delivery of tailor-made solutions to the ever-changing retail market. With multiple connection ports and PCI-E (PCI Express) expansion slots for easy system configuration no matter what the installation environment – the B-Series fits almost any space constraint or in-store design demand. In addition, Elo TouchSystems has constructed the system to provide tool-less access to internal components to minimize service and repair down-times.

“Until today, fully integrated AiO POS terminals have been expensive to purchase, configure and manage for the ever-changing retail market,” said John Nicewick, Worldwide Business Development Manager, Elo TouchSystems. “The compact size, cost and scalability of the B-Series are well-suited to support a diverse range of POS and POI touch computing requirements. Retailers with various touch computing needs -- from standard POS duties to new interactive signage -- will find a B-Series platform configuration to fit their needs”

The company says that, until now, the majority of commercial touchcomputers featured limited connectivity ports and no expansion capabilities – greatly limiting system functionality. To increase configuration options, the new B-Series comes standardized with multiple connectivity ports including: six USB 2.0 ports, two RS-232 serial ports, Gigabit Ethernet and audio ports. PCI-E low-profile industry-standard option cards and other options from Elo TouchSystems deliver enhanced performance and compatibility. Additionally, B-series peripherals support virtually any retail/POS application and include a 3-track magnetic stripe reader (MSR), a 2x20 VFD rear-facing customer display, and a biometric fingerprint reader, all of which can be customer installed on the top, bottom, left, or right side of the screen .
