Expanded versatility, bigger screen, and improved serviceability, all in a compact design: the 17A2 17" LCD all-in-one touchcomputer provides an attractive ultra-compact 17" touch solution that can fit virtually anywhere in any point-of-service environment.

The 17A2 touchcomputer with dual video display capability includes a choice of touch technologies: AccuTouch five-wire resistive, IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave, CarrollTouch infrared and the company's innovative Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR) that blends the benefits of all three.

Elo's touch technologies provide stable, durable touch options that are resistant to scratches and liquids and can be activated in a variety of ways. Also, the 17A2 comes with 1280 x 1024 SXGA resolution and 5 x 4 aspect ratio to display clear, precise graphics for improved readability.

The space-saving, compact design of the 17A2 touchcomputer offers increased flexibility for easy integration of a variety of optional field-replaceable peripherals, including: three-track magnetic stripe reader (MSR) for credit, ID and loyalty card transactions; customer-facing display to verify those transactions; biometric fingerprint recognition for increased security; 3-watt speaker bar with optional single-line or omni-directional barcode scanner; and DVD drive.

Serviceability is enhanced with easy access to the hard drive and compact flash through a slide-out drawer. The silent, fanless, spill- and tamper-resistant design of the 17A2 and its compact integrated peripherals, make this touchcomputer an ideal choice for point-of-sale, point-of-service, loyalty systems, kiosk information systems, medical and light industrial, airport security, home control, and Internet access points.
