POS terminals built for hospitality

Product: P1230 and P1530

When global technology company NCR Corp. introduced the stylish, energy-efficient P1230 and P1530 POS terminal series platform for the hospitality industry, it earned accolades from the Industrial Designers Society of America and ultimately won a Silver Award at the International Design Excellence Awards honoring top achievements in industrial design.

"Our newest generation of point-of-sale terminals offers a compact and award-winning design with increased capabilities needed in today's hospitality market," stated Carlyle Taylor, Vice President of Hardware for NCR Hospitality.

"They are built for nonstop reliability and provide a lower total cost of ownership for our hospitality customers through reduced power consumption and increased performance."

To withstand hospitality environments, the terminals are equipped with spill resistant, high impact enclosures to ensure continuous operation.

The 30 series features high-resolution LED color displays with resistive or capacitive touch-screens for optimum display quality, the company stated. Touch-screens are available in two sizes: the 12-inch P1230 and 15-inch P1530.

According to NCR, the terminals are powered by Intel Corp.'s new-generation Atom D2700 dual-core processors and feature passive cooling with solid-state technology, which all combined drive significant energy efficiency and reliability through lower power consumption.

And with passive cooling, the 30 series' fan-less configuration improves overall reliability by preventing forced air through the unit, which reduces system contaminants.

Multiple operating systems available include Microsoft Corp. Windows 7 Professional, POSReady 7, and Windows Embedded Compact 7.

The terminals provide several connectivity options, including four serial ports, three standard USBs, one powered USB 12V connection, one DVI video port, two dedicated cash drawer ports and additional expansion options. Having powered serial ports reportedly eliminates the need for power bricks, eradicating another point of potential failure.

The system's built-in expansion capabilities can support new devices and peripherals, making it unnecessary to purchase expander units, the company said.

For example, NCR offers customer-facing displays so customers can view orders, as well as on-screen promotions and specials presented by merchants.

The 30 series' enhanced security features reportedly include a secure mag stripe reader with triple DES encryption, an ultraviolet light for cash validation, biometric login, driver's license and credit card validation, and clock-in and manager override functions. The terminals can either be wall-mounted or positioned on a countertop, depending on merchant preference.
