Posiflex adds free projected capacitive touch to XT4015 POS terminal
Hayward, Calif. – Effective immediately, all new Posiflex XT4015 folding touch terminals will ship at no extra cost with projected capacitive screens, rather than resistive touch. This new projected capacitive touch screen change provides enhanced performance.
It features 10‐point multi-touch capability, a bezel‐free 100% flat surface for a clean sleek appearance, a scratch‐resistant surface, and works with surgical or cotton gloves for maximum input flexibility. The XT4015 with a 15-inch screen has a collapsible base configurable for maximum viewing flexibility and reduced shipping costs. Users can select one of three Intel processors: the Celeron G540 2.5 GHz, Core i3‐3220 3.3GHz or the Core i5‐3550 3.7 GHz running up to 16GB of RAM.
The new projected capacitive XT4015 is fully cross‐compatible with the XT4015 resistive model and offers a seamless, but enhanced transition for other software applications. Applications for the XT4015 with projected capacitive touch include point-of-sale, self‐service kiosks, ticketing machines, ATMs, pay‐at‐the‐pump gas machines, convenience stores and under‐counter and bar applications.
