Posiflex’s (www.posiflexusa.com) new TX4200E (http://www.posiflexusa.com/tx4200e.php) is a small industrial PC multipurpose controller that runs virtually any software to drive digital signage, kitchen control configurations, PC replacement, surveillance systems, point-of-purchase displays, point-of-sale and service, and wired or wireless vending or kiosk applications. Powered by a Dual-core Intel Atom D2550 CPU 1.86 GHz with 4GB of DDR RAM for fast-task processing, the TX4200E has the power and expandability to serve virtually any purpose. With a VESA bracket, the TX4200E can easily be mounted behind a monitor or HDTV, discreetly hidden from view. This makes it a simple and effective way to turn any VESA-compliant display or TV into a full-featured PC or digital signage unit. The TX4200E’s aluminum housing is fanless and ventless for quiet, cool, trouble-free operation.
Although a common application for the TX4200E is a PC replacement, what is not common is that it’s built on commercial-class embedded operating systems and CPUs to ensure years of trouble-free operation. Its small footprint with Wi-Fi capability allows the TX4200E to be used for anywhere integration, including easy wall-mount installation in small, tight spaces and in unobtrusive locations to maximize scarce countertop space. The controller also boasts a variety of I/O port configurations, low power consumption, HDMI, and flexible options such as powered 24V USB, Wi-Fi and 64GB SSD.
Doyle Ledford, VP of Sales at Posiflex, notes, “The TX4200E is a small-form-factor PC that delivers a powerful combination of both video and data, and it offers optional Wi-Fi expandability for anywhere computing. The TX4200E, along with six USB ports, a cash register port, four com ports and an optional powered 24V USB, provides wide ranging expandability and scale.”
Joseph Oyler, Owner of Creative Technology Services Group (http://creativetsg.com/), an integrator of restaurant and retail Point of Sale, uses the TX4200E as a PC replacement in commercial environments. Mr. Oyler notes, “I’ve been using Posiflex products for a decade now, and their product reliability is second to none. When given the choice of a big-name consumer-class PC versus the industrial-grade TX4200E, it was only natural Posiflex’s long record of field-tested durability made this an easy choice. My customers cannot afford to be down, as downtime often means the difference of being open or closed.”
