The TOSHIBA TEC ST-7000 - High Performance PoS for Demanding Retail Environments

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.
