Point of Sale terminals

Hardware for kiosk and information terminals

Technologies are increasingly impacting all areas of life, particularly in the service industry. At the airport you find check-in terminals to avoid queues; we have stopped going to the bank for cash ever since cash machines were introduced and even at gas stations you find interactive fuel pumps. Leading global companies rely on embedded computing systems from iesy for their Point of Sale products.

Kiosk systems are often subject to adverse weather conditions and therefore have particular requirements for an extended temperature range. iesy supplies custom computing systems for a number of PoS solutions, ranging from full-custom design to adapted mainboards including COM Express, Qseven or SMARC modules. Thanks to their modular approach, PoS systems are sustainable and future-oriented: new processor generations with higher performance can be replaced without having to exchange or replace the entire system. This saves time and money. 

Usually, Point of Sale solutions have high requirements in terms of graphics and processor performance, all the more so when multimedia content is played. In contrast to this, simple vending machines with few hardware needs require significantly fewer resources when they have a reduced user interface with or without touch screen. However, they might be more demanding in terms of security, energy efficiency and permanent operation. For many years, iesy has provided leading automation manufacturers with reliable, powerful and custom-made embedded systems - in many instances we have already managed the second or even third device generation.
