Toshiba SurePOS 580 Touch Screen POS

Toshiba SurePOS 580 Touch Screen POSWe think the Toshiba SurePOS 580 is simply the best tower POS terminal designed. Ever.

The sleek, slim Toshiba SurePOS 580 offers industry-leading, highly accurate infrared (IR) touchscreen technology as part of it’s standard configuration. Unlike other touchscreen monitors, the SurePOS 580 touchscreen never requires recalibration—reducing service calls, costly downtime and errors. The advanced “bare glass” technology, allows for a brighter, higher contrast screen when compared to “resistive” touch screens, and similarly higher durability because there is no clear plastic “film” to damage over time. The SurePOS 580 monitor features adjustable touch sensitivity, allowing cashiers to modify the speed of the monitor to their preference, improving accuracy and performance. Finally, the Toshiba SurePOS 580 touchscreen is completely sealed to protect it from accidental splashes and on-screen spills.

The Intel Core i5 processor is standard on the SurePOS 580 and has enough power to run even the most demanding POS software applications. 8GB of RAM ensures that there is enough longevity in the machine to handle the next generation of upgrades as well. The 128GB SSD hard drive option provides the access speed, durability and peace of mind that can only come from Toshiba POS hardware.

You would think that a POS terminal this powerful would consume a lot of energy and generates a lot of heat, right? Nothing could be further from the truth. According to Edison Group research the Toshiba SurePOS uses less power and generates less heat than it’s closest competitors, thanks to its 80+ gold power supply, superior airflow management, and energy-saving “Deep Sleep” technology.

Toshiba SurePOS 580 with Light-Path Management

To assist owners and IT managers alike, Toshiba has included its iconic “Light-Path Management” technology which indicates at a glance the status of the POS terminal in the event of a hardware failure. Handy indicator lights show the operator clearly what is wrong with the POS terminal with 4 simple lighted icons: Power Supply, Hard Drive (SSD or HDD), Processor Fan, and Memory. Light-Path management reduces downtime, service call cost, and it can reduce service “recalls” due to incorrect diagnosis. To make the SurePOS 580 even better for serviceability, it features an ingenius tool free design that allows the technician to change even the most important parts without ever having to get a toolbox. Clearly another intelligent solution built into an already impressive POS terminal from Toshiba.
