Now available is the award-winning HS2310, an ultra-small point-of-service terminal with a multi-touch projected capacitive screen. Recognized for engineering excellence, the HS2310 is winner of the 2014 Red Dot Award for Product Design and the 2013 COMPUTEX Design & Innovation award. This 10-inch projected capacitive touch screen terminal comes integrated with a 3-inch thermal printer, encryption-capable magnetic stripe reader, WiFi, and optional secondary customer displays.

The HS2310 is 60 percent smaller than the traditional terminal and printer footprint to allow use of every inch of valuable counter space. Even though this terminal is small, it supports a fast Intel D525 dual core 1.8 GHz processor with 1MB cache and up to 4GB of system memory. The HS2310, just taller than a wine bottle, runs the same software image as the widely-deployed Posiflex XT3215 and KS7215 touch-screen terminals for easy network deployment. A wide suite of certified KS7215/XT3215 applications include gaming, health-care, and POS systems for small- and medium-sized hospitality, retail, or convenience stores.

“The HS2310 is a perfect platform for the Digital Dining kiosk software used in loyalty programs, food trucks, or small quick-service restaurant locations,” says Andre Nataf, senior business development manager for Digital Dining. “Since we already certified the KS7215 and XT3215, we were assured software compatibility. With the HS2310 backed by many years of field-tested and proven Posiflex reliability, we expect the small HS2310 to pack a big punch."

In many environments, a blended solution—the use of both tablets and fixed-station terminals—make sense. However, finding a correct balance is challenging. If a tablet ends up being used in a fixed position, it results in a clumsy clutter of cables and devices, as an MSR, stand, and printer must be patch-worked together.

HS2310 applications include traditional POS, overflow POS, mini kiosk, table customer engagement, and optional integrated biometric capability for employees clocking in.

For long-term operating systems support demanded in commercial roll outs, the HS2310 is available with the embedded version of Win 8.1. Additional operating systems support is available for POS Ready 7 or Win 7. An HS2310 solution is a much cleaner and superior solution to the Posiflex XP3315 that it replaces, with more processing power, MSR and printer integration, optional fingerprint security, a choice of hard or solid state drives, and extensive port options.
