BlueStar Adds New Elo Touchcomputers, Touchmonitors To Portfolio
BlueStar today announced new additions to their Elo TouchSystem product portfolio including the D-Series All-in-One Touchcomputer and Wide-Aspect Touchmonitor. Through a partnership with Tyco Electronics, BlueStar, the leading global innovator in solutions-based distribution for Auto ID, Point-of-Sale, Mobility, RFID, and Security products, is able to provide value-added resellers with the industry's leading touch technologies.
Elo Touchsystems, a Tyco Electronics business, developed the D-Series as elegantly designed, high performance versions of their original 15D1 All-in-One Touchcomputer. They were developed especially for point-of-sale and point-of-service applications. The family offers compact, modern displays with a footprint sized to match standard cash drawers. The same broad range of optional POS peripherals is still available from Elo including a perpendicular MSR card reader for small spaces, a handheld barcode scanner, a fingerprint reader, and a customer facing display. Peripherals are field-installable to minimize downtime, making upgrades quick and easy.
"The original 15D1 represented an evolution in touchcomputer solutions," explains Steve Aguirre, Elo Touchsystems Product Manager. "It delivered what our customers wanted - a small footprint touchcomputer that combined performance, strong value, enhanced field serviceability, and more connectivity options. With the D-Series they have four more choices with Intel Celeron Dual Core 2.2GHz or Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz and 15-inch or 17-inch touchscreen options."
Elo is also offering two touchmonitors, the 1519L and 1919L, which are well suited for point-of-sale (POS), point-of-information (POI), point-of-service, interactive digital signage, loyalty systems, kiosk information systems, light industrial shop-floor automation, and home control. Their 15" and 19 wide-screen format can be rotated to portrait mode to provide more display space for applications. Both touchmonitors are built to withstand high use within rugged commercial or public environments.
The D-Series touchcomputers and touchmonitors are available with either Zero-Bezel AccuTouch resistive, IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave, or Zero-Bezel Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR) touch technologies.

"Our partnership with Tyco Electronics allows VARS to provide their SMB customers with versatile solutions that are stylish, flexible, and functional."
