Elo TouchSystems new multifunction touchcomputer offers interactive information benefits

Tyco Electronics UK (Elo TouchSystems Division) : 25 January, 2008  (New Product)
Elo TouchSystems new 17A2 touchcomputer offers expanded versatility with options for magnetic stripe reader, rear-facing customer display, biometric fingerprint security, barcode scanner, speaker bar and DVD drive in a space-saving standard 17inch footprint.
The new 17A2 not only retains both the compact footprint of Elo's 1729L 17inch integrated multifunction touchmonitor and its comprehensive range of options, but also adds a host of new features to help customers gain a foothold in the point-of-service marketplace.

Many diverse applications can benefit from the capabilities of the new 17A2 all-in-one touchcomputer including loyalty systems, kiosk information systems, POS systems and Internet access points such as those for web surfing.

The 17A2 touchcomputer with dual video display capability includes a choice of the industry-leading Elo TouchSystems touch technologies: AccuTouch Five-Wire Resistive, IntelliTouch Surface Wave, CarrollTouch Infrared and the company's innovative Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR) that blends the benefits of all three.

Elo's touch technologies provide stable, durable touch options that are resistant to scratches and liquids and can be activated in a variety of ways. Also, the 17A2 comes with 1280 x 1024 SXGA resolution and 5 x 4 aspect ratio display for clear, precise graphics and improved readability.

The space-saving, compact design of the17A2 touchcomputer offers increased flexibility for easy integration of a variety of optional field-replaceable peripherals including: three-track magnetic stripe reader (MSR) for credit, ID and loyalty card transactions; customer-facing display to verify those transactions; biometric fingerprint recognition for increased security; 3W speaker bar with optional single-line or omni-directional barcode scanner; and DVD drive.

Elo's cable management design conceals cables from view providing additional security from tampering and robust tie-downs for strain relief. The multi-adjustable stand offers flexibility to accommodate a variety of installation configurations and the base is easily removed for secure mounting to countertops and walls.
Serviceability is enhanced with easy access to the hard drive and compact flash through a slide-out

In order to provide the higher computing power necessary for today's point-of-service applications, Elo placed a 1GHz Intel Celeron M processor with 400MHz front-side-bus (FSB) at the heart of the new 17A2 all-in-one touchcomputer. DDR2 system memory capacity can be expanded to 1.5GB and an integrated mini-PCI slot enables optional high-speed wireless LAN connectivity via 802.11g standards.

Two serial, four USB 2.0 and one Ethernet port provide ample expansion capability to accommodate both legacy and future peripheral add-ons. Elo has also added cash drawer, powered USB and VGA-out ports and support for Windows Embedded for Point-of-Service (WEPOS). In addition, the new 17A2 all-in-one touchcomputer is compatible with all of Microsoft's major operating systems such as Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Embedded and Windows Vista Business.

'The 17A2 is designed for touch from the ground up and includes all of the functionality expected from an Elo public-access product, with features such as reliable, silent, fanless operation and cables hidden from the user's view,' commented Elo TouchSystems' product manager, Kristof Heyndrickx.

Heyndrickx confirmed that the optional peripherals are seamlessly integrated into the 17A2's compact design and the all-in-one touchcomputer offers a new adjustable base that can function as a tall or short stand.

'The controls, placed on the side and not on the front, include a lockout function and multilingual on-screen display (OSD). We not only manufacture the 17A2 touchcomputer but also provide a single point of contact for service and support,' Heyndrickx added.
