Designed as a seamless expansion of the popular B-Series portfolio, the new C-Series combines versatility, processing power and screen durability with an expansive scope of configuration options and multiple form-factors, including the Elo TouchSystems zero-bezel product design for a sleek, modern, edge-to-edge look as well as easy cleaning and maintenance.
Rugged, highly configurable and stylishly packaged, the C-Series offers System Integrators, Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and Software Developers an expanded selection of all-in-one touchcomputing options for the development of point-of-sale (POS), point-of-information (POI) and point-of-service applications. Designed with flexibility, performance, connectivity, serviceability, access to key components and processing power in mind, the C-Series can be incorporated into most desktop or countertop touch display applications including customer loyalty systems, internet access sites, digital signage and even hospitality and home automation and control.
