TOSHIBA TEC Europe, a leading retail and industrial automation solutions provider, today announced the launch of the stylish and rugged ST-71 dual-screen POS terminal for Retail.
The ST-71 has an integrated 15 super-bright TFT. The 15 screen optimises the graphical capability of the POS providing the operator with a larger display, reducing the number of operator errors and allowing more fast keys to be incorporated on to the screen.
An optional 12 tiltable customer facing TFT screen can be used to display special promotions and advertising material.
Next to the main screen is a Magnetic Stripe Reader (MSR) for both cashier log on and clients electronic card payments. This option can be mounted either left or right of the screen to optimise counter space.
Robust, Stylish with an Open Architecture
The new TOSHIBA ST-71 is at the leading edge of compact, robust and integrated design with a low total cost of ownership. Based on the world renowned ST-60 and benefiting from the same open architecture as the proven ST-7000 series, the all-black ST-71 POS terminal has been designed for demanding hospitality markets as well as specialty retail operations. The ST-71 is compatible with current Microsoft Windows2000, XP and certified Linux operating systems.
Spill proof and tested against harmful substances such as oil, acids and dangerous fluids, the ST-71 is able to withstand the demanding environment of all retail sectors including hospitality.
Speed and Performance
The ST-71 is equipped with a fast Intel 2GHz Celeron processor and Front Side Bus (FSB) accelerating response times, while its high capacity memory of up to 2GB reduces paging. These features help to minimise bottlenecks, resulting in improved customer throughput, reduced queues and potentially lower labour costs. In addition the ST-71 benefits from advanced networking with serial and parallel ports as well as Powered USB 2.0 ports, ensuring that the ST-71 will work with not only existing peripherals but those likely to be released in the future, essential for low total cost of ownership.
Slide-out Module Concept (SOM)
The slide out module concept enables users to exchange key components quickly and efficiently minimising downtime and optimising productivity.
Eco-friendly and RoHS Compliant !
It is possible to power on/off the ST-71 via the network using the Wake on LAN function. This environmentally-friendly feature enables data collection without leaving the power on overnight. In order to comply with the compulsory EU Directive coming into force in July 2006, the ST-71 has been designed to conform to RoHS (Removal of Hazardous Substances) preventing dangerous materials being leaked into the environment in the future and reducing the need for costly disposal of hazardous materials.
