TouchSystems continues to expand its presence in the projected capacitive market with its addition of a multi-touch, all-in-one unit. The unit, the SYS-PPC15A, is integrated with projected capacitive (multi-touch) technology; features a bezel-free design; and can be used as a desktop or wall unit.
While the multi-touch, all-in-one unit can be used in a variety of industries, it has the most applicability to point-of-sale (POS) ones. The unit is equipped with an 80 GB hard drive, simplifying the capture and storage of data. It features an Intel Celeron processor that is designed for thermally sensitive applications, such as POS systems. It also comes with a magnetic strip reader (MSR) and offers a digital, multilingual on-screen display (OSD).
The unit’s physical features complement the POS space, too. Its fanless design cuts down on background noise, which can be a concern in certain environments. The system’s bezel-free design and flush-screen display make it aesthetically pleasing, another possible concern in some retail or hospitality environments. If durability is a concern, the SYS-PPC15A meets it with its rugged design and optically bonded glass.
The main selling point, though, is the effortless multi-touch experience. Using the all-in-one unit doesn’t require extensive studies or forethought; as Carol Nordin, president of TouchSystems notes,“A person simply interacts with the system in the same way that he or she interacts with a smartphone or tablet.”
