The New P1515 From Radiant Systems

Radiant has officially released the new P1515 POS terminal!

The Radiant P1515 Point-of-Sale is the newest member in the Radiant Systems family of open retail platforms. The terminal utilizes Intel’s ATOM processor, 945GSE chipset. The highly efficient ATOM processor offers great performance, but with lower power consumption for a more reliable design.

Open Platform Highlights
o Standard Intel Architecture
o Industry standard storage (Hard drive or uSSD), DDR2 memory, and USB/RS232 connectivity
o Multiple operating systems including Windows Embedded Standard and Windows Embedded POS Ready
o OPOS drivers available

The countertop enclosure provides many benefits, including a small footprint and multiple mounting options. The cable management system provides for ease of installation, controlled access to connectors, and concealed cable routing for better reliability. This all-in-one solution provides very tight integration of core point-of-sale hardware including a touch screen, magnetic stripe reader, and much more. This package includes a 15” active matrix, color, 1024X768 main display with a resistive touch screen. The 15” display is a 56% increase in surface area over the 12” models which allows for faster transactions due to less toggling between application screens, more application design flexibility, and better resolution. The bright active matrix screen provides the best possible display quality, with excellent contrast and brightness.

The P1515 resistive touch screen provides a very durable, accurate, and fast touch interface even with a gloved hand or stylus.
The P1515 offers several connectivity options including two RJ12, two DB9, four USB, and one dedicated cash drawer port. This provides expansion capabilities if new devices/peripherals need to be supported without having to buy an add-on expander. Also, the powered serial ports eliminate the need for power bricks, thereby reducing another point of potential failure.

The retail hardened design offers a spill resistant, high impact enclosure that is built to withstand tough in-store conditions with continuous operation. The fanless configuration increases reliability by preventing forced air through the unit, thereby reducing contaminants in the system. The P1515 can be configured as a silent, thin-client, fanless, solid-state terminal for maximum reliability.
The P1515 supports multiple operating systems including Windows Embedded Standard and Windows Embedded POS Ready. The P1515 provides full support for TCP/IP networking on a 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet network.

Product Stability.
By using Intel’s embedded processor family, the P1515 offers

guaranteed product stability for many years unlike traditional consumer desktop and mobile PCs that have short processor life spans of only a few months. This benefit provides a consistent configuration which is critical for rollouts that might last several years.
