Original Press Release:
Introducing the New Elo TouchSystems All-in-One Touchcomputer Family
-- New Family of Versatile All-in-One Touchcomputers Delivers Style, Flexibility and Functionality to Retail and Hospitality Environments --
Harrisburg, Pa. -- Elo TouchSystems, a Tyco Electronics business, is introducing a full line of high performance versions of the original 15D1 All-in-One Touchcomputer. Small to medium-sized retail and hospitality businesses now have four new choices of versatile, highly functional and elegantly designed touchcomputer solutions.
"The original 15D1 represented an evolution in touchcomputer solutions," explains Steve Aguirre, product manager. "It delivered what our customers wanted -- a small footprint touchcomputer that combined performance, strong value, enhanced field serviceability and more connectivity options. Now they have four more choices based around an Intel Celeron Dual Core 2.2GHz or Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz and 15-inch or 17-inch touch screens."
The D-Series family was developed from the ground up for point-of-sale and point-of-service applications. The family offers compact, modern displays with a footprint that is sized to match standard cash drawers. The same broad range of optional POS peripherals is still available from Elo and includes a perpendicular MSR card reader for small spaces, a hand-held bar code scanner, a fingerprint reader, and a customer facing display. Upgrading or adding new functionality to any D-Series touchcomputer system is quick and easy because peripherals are field-installable to minimize downtime. All Elo D-Series touchcomputers are available with a range of input/output port connection options to allow virtually any POS configuration and the D-Series family supports third party peripherals such as cash drawers and printers.
Serviceability for the D-Series touchcomputers is easy -- the unit's motherboard, hard drive and power supply are all easily accessible and field-replaceable to enable rapid replacement or upgrades. For customers who require more storage capabilities, a second 160 gigabit hard drive can easily be added. The unit's hard drive, cable management capabilities and spill-resistant housing provide a long functional life, all at a competitive price.
"We intend the D-Series for use by the small to medium-sized customer," concludes Aguirre. "We're confident this family will exceed the expectations of even our most exacting customers."
The D-Series touchcomputers are available with either Zero-Bezel AccuTouch resistive, IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave, or Zero-Bezel Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR) touch technologies. The Zero-Bezel APR screen provides a virtually 100 percent useable surface area. The zero-bezel design removes the frame or bezel of standard monitors creating a seamless glass surface that supports a brilliant touch experience and easier maintenance. Each unit is available with the Windows Express POS (WEPOS) operating system fully installed, enabling broad compatibility with peripheral software and drivers. The 15D1 is also available with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and cash drawer (OPOS) operating systems.
