Sharp strengthens POS line-up
Sharp is adding three new flexible LCD touch screen models to its line-up of PC-based open POS terminals.
The new RZE313, RZE315 and RZE316 models combine a flexible hardware design concept with a competitive price point. The products offer a host of customisable features and are enabled with durable, easy-to-use P-CAP touch technology, delivering an intuitive user interface. Further customisation is possible through a fast and silent integrated thermal printer, which is available for all new models, while a choice of different input and output expansion modules allows for additional interface ports. The extra expansion modules are housed within the product stand, delivering a tidy, clutter-free POS station suitable for any customer-facing location.
The new screens are available in a choice of three different LCD screen sizes (13.3, 15.1 and 15.6 inches) with LED backlighting and adjustable screen tilting between 20 and 90 degrees, so that models can be used in wide range of set-ups
