October 26, 2016 (Taipei,Taiwan) – Advantech, a leading industrial computing platform provider, is pleased to announce AIM-37, a 10.1” industrial-grade mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) tablet. Powered by an Intel® Atom™ quad-core processor that supports both Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Android 6.0.1 operating systems, the AIM-37’s surprisingly thin and lightweight design ensures maximum portability for mobile operations. The scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 touchscreen offers a mean time before failure (MTBF) of up to 12,000 hours and support for gloved operation. The embedded 7,900 mAh battery provides up to 8 hours operation, and the IP54-rated front panel protects the systemfrom water and dust. The inclusion of an embedded pogo pin connector allows AIM-37 to be combined with a charging cradle/docking station in order to function as a mini POS system. Additionally, AIM-37 can be integrated with a wide range of peripherals, including a 2D barcode scanner, magnetic stripe reader and IC card reader to support various retail and hospitality applications as well as inventory management or self-service operations.
Industrial-Grade Device Offers Enhanced Performance
AIM-37 is an industrial-grade mobile POS tablet designed to provide a superior device for mobile computing. The inclusion of an Intel® Atom™ quad-core processor that supports both Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Android 6.0.1 provides AIM-37 with the capacity for high-performance computing and data processing, while ensuring flexibility for diverse applications. The scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 touchscreen features anti-glare, anti-fingerprint, and palm rejection technology that enhance the system accuracy and ease of use, while the MTBF of up to 12,000 hours ensures system reliability and long-term stability. Moreover, in addition to supporting 10-point multi-touch and gloved operation, the AIM-37 touchscreen is directly bonded to reduce ray refraction and improve visibility for more comfortable viewing.
Built-in Wireless Technology with Support for Diverse Peripherals
To support cloud-based, mobile, and outdoor operations, AIM-37 is equipped with built-in WLAN and Bluetooth wireless technologies that enable real-time data transmissions, resource tracking, and monitoring. Additionally, AIM-37 integrates a 13.56 MHz RFID (NFC) reader at front side to facilitate mobile applications such as member identification or interaction with mobile phones.
AIM-37 also offers high expandability for diverse applications. The provision of a USB 2.0 Host + DC-IN pogo pin connector facilitates the integration of various peripherals to extend the system functions according to the application requirements. For example, AIM-37 can be integrated with the unique charging cradle with embedded receipt printer to function as a mini POS system for checkout service.
Targeted DesignEnsures Durability and Reliable Operation
The AIM-37 battery supports up to 8 hours operation to provide users with reliable computing for long durations. The system’s IP54-rating for water and dust protection not only eliminates damage from water, oil, and dust, but also prevents water from interfering with the sensor function, making AIM-37 the ideal mobile system for commercial catering and hospitality applications. AIM-37 also has a wide range of accessories, including a hand strap, carry belt, and mounting stand, that can be employed for hands-free use or trolley installation.
