TOSHIBA TEC Europe, specialist manufacturer of Point of Sale hardware, is pleased to announce the latest addition to their range of highly successful PoS solutions. The new ST-7000, with its robust and versatile design integrates power and connectivity into a very small footprint optimising essential selling space. TOSHIBA TEC quality and reliability combined with new features to lower the total cost of ownership, ensure retailers have a future-proof hardware platform to cater for their ever changing business needs.
At the European launch in Venice, Italy, Masayuki Horimoto, President and CEO of TOSHIBA TEC Europe said: Our expansion strategy is squarely aimed at large international markets. The ST-7000 launch in Europe, prior to its introduction in Japan, is a company first. This clearly confirms our commitment to build marketshare in Europe.
For ultimate connectivity, the ST-7000 boasts four powered USB 2.0 ports (3 x 12v and 1 x 24v) and an industrial power supply, allowing existing and future PoS peripherals to be connected quickly and easily using just a single cable from a single AC outlet. There are 5 serial ports as standard (3 powered), parallel, VGA, DVI-D, LVDS, 24v and AC in/out to run existing peripherals and displays.
The new Slide Out Modules(SOM), allow for key components (the hard disk, internal UPS and mother board) to be swapped out in only a few seconds, optimising check-out productivity time whilst at the same time reducing overall cost of maintenance.
Data security is facilitated via an internal UPS, while the front panel cover of the new ST-7000 comes with a key lock preventing unauthorised access to the power switch and optional CD drive. In addition the heat release design enables optimal cabinet air flow.
Compatible with MS-DOS, Windows and Linux operating systems, and with legacy software, the ST-7000 can run both off-the-shelf applications and tailored software, developed by application providers for niche retail sectors.
