J2 reveals new POS technology

J2 Retail Systems, the specialist manufacturer of PC-based touchscreens and point-of-sale hardware to retail, hospitality and leisure, has launched a new integrated touchscreen computer.

The company believes its J2 625 represents a generational shift in POS technology, resulting in exceptional reliability, reduced power consumption and extended product life.

The J2 625 is fanless and powered by the energy-efficient Intel Dual core 1.86GHz D2550 Cedarview processor, known for delivering higher speed whilst consuming less power. This latest chipset is part of the Intel embedded road map and is available for seven years from release.

“Collaboration with customers is central to our design strategy,” explains Moray Boyd, CEO, J2 Retail Systems. “Our policy of component standardisation enables J2 to extend product life and keep reducing cost of ownership. The new J2 625 is the culmination of cutting-edge point of service innovation.”

2GB of memory comes as standard with this virtually maintenance-free electronic point of sale (EPoS) terminal. J2 625 users can opt for Hard Disk (HDD) or Solid State (SSD) storage drives, both of which can be changed in seconds.

The new machine comes with a 15” 4:3, mercury-free, LED backlit display, which is fully adjustable, bright and easy to read. This screen technology has a longer product life, consumes less power and is better for the environment.

With an Ingress Protection rating of 64, the spill-proof and dust-proof J2 625 is suitable for the harshest of retail and hospitality environments. The screens - either five-wire resistive (TFR) or multi-touch projected capacitive touch screen (PCT) – are unaffected by high temperatures, sea air, water spray, dust or grease.

A wide range of connectivity options, the ability to use secondary display screens, and support for popular technologies such as fingerprint recognition and iButton all add to the J2 625’s appeal. This new EPoS touchscreen terminal runs all the current Microsoft Windows operating systems, is RoHS and WEEE compliant and is offered with J2’s trademark 3-year parts and labour warranty.
