New C-Series Duo Delivers 19-Inch and 22-Inch Wide-Aspect Ratio Display Options for Bigger, Brighter Retail POS and POI Performance

Harrisburg, PA. - May, 2011 – TE Connectivity today introduced the Elo TouchSystems C-Series, the latest addition to its all-in-one touchcomputer portfolio for retail point-of-sale, counter top product demonstration and customer information systems. The new C-Series broadens TE's Elo TouchSystems all-in-one line-up with two new screen sizes - 19-inch and 22-inch in HD widescreen format - while leveraging the same quality, performance and durability of its popular B-Series and D-Series touchcomputers.

C-Series: Expanding All-in-One Touchcomputer Options

The new C-Series features a 16:9 aspect ratio high definition widescreen display, providing never-before-seen
HD interactivity for exquisite POI and POS clarity and resolution. Designed as a seamless expansion of the
popular B-Series portfolio, the new C-Series combines versatility, processing power and screen durability with
an expansive scope of configuration options and multiple form-factors, including the Elo TouchSystems zerobezel
product design for a sleek, modern, edge-to-edge look as well as easy cleaning and maintenance.

Rugged, highly configurable and stylishly packaged, the C-Series offers System Integrators, Value-Added
Resellers (VARs) and Software Developers an expanded selection of all-in-one touch computing options for the
development of point-of-sale (POS), point-of-information (POI) and point-of-service applications. Designed with
flexibility, performance, connectivity, serviceability, access to key components and processing power in mind,
the C-Series can be incorporated into most desktop or counter top touch display applications including
customer loyalty systems, internet access sites, digital signage and even hospitality and home automation and
control.

"The C-Series offers developers a rare combination of performance and choice of configuration - all wrapped
into a functional, stylish and compact design," said Bradley Verona, Elo TouchSystems product manager. "This
addition to TE's portfolio of Elo TouchSystems all-in-one touchcomputers underscores our commitment to
providing touch solutions that meet any application demand in every possible environment."

A full range of standard connectivity ports allows for seamless integration with most legacy or new installation
environments, and the support of standard, low-profile PCI-E expansion cards enables a wide range of
customized options to meet most connectivity needs. Common peripherals, accessories and system
architecture allow for a common system image between POI and POS hardware. The support of existing BSeries
peripherals enable customers to leverage their current IT investments as well as allow for
common/interchangeable peripherals between POI and POS systems.

The C-Series offers a choice of three industry-leading touch product technologies to meet the specific needs
for virtually any environment including:

  • AccuTouch (Zero-Bezel Resistive)
  • IntelliTouch Plus (Multi-touch Surface Acoustic Wave)
  • iTouch (Zero-Bezel Surface Acoustic Wave)
    Engineered for flexibility, the C-Series also offers optional memory and storage configurations, as well as
    scalable levels of computing power for added capacity and increased reliability, including:
  • Cool and Quiet C2 fan-less Intel Atom Dual-Core 1.66 GHz processor
  • Performance Ultra C3 fan-cooled Intel Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHz processor
  • Up to 4GB RAM and a 2nd hard drive option for expanded storage or RAID configuration

The Elo TouchSystems C-Series touchcomputers are available either without an operating system or with
Windows POSReady 2009 or Windows 7 operating systems. Models with the IntelliTouch Plus product
technology and Windows 7 operating system support multi-touch functionality. All models support single-finger
gestures when using the Windows 7 operating system.
