Rugged Mobile Computing
ARBOR Technology, a leading provider of embedded computing solutions, is pleased to announce the availability of the ARBOR Gladius G0830, a versatile point-of-sales system solution combining the advantage of both mobile and fixed POS. Thanks to its ergonomic design, market-driven configuration and extensive connectivity for communication and peripheral devices, the ARBOR G0830 tablet POS is a perfect fit for retail, warehousing and hospitality, managing several key tasks such as inventory management, payment processing, customer data gathering and staff tracking.
The G0830 is multifunctional and easy to use, enabling quick deployment into applications. The Gladius G0830 is powered by the Intel® Atom™ x5-Z8350 processor which is a power efficient, quad-core SoC for Windows and Android devices. Thus, the G0830 is a sophisticated dual-OS platform to support both Windows-dominated markets and emerging Android markets.
The G0830 tablet has an 8 inch 10 point multi touch screen, weighs less than 600g and has a hand strap attached at the back, making it easily carried by one hand. Designed as a mobile POS solution, the tablet comes with all the necessary features and connectivity including WLAN, Bluetooth, NFC and 1D/2D barcode scanner. LTE WWAN and GPS can be added as options. In addition, the tablet has a 64GB of eMMC flash storage and is extendable via Micro SD Card.
The tablet POS couples with a desktop cradle which provides rich I/O ports for expansions: three USB 2.0 ports (OTG support), one HDMI and RJ-45 LAN port. NFC, MSR and Smart Card Reader support payment processing, and to restrict access to sensitive financial backend data. Together with the cradle, the G0830 works as a comprehensive desktop POS but only required a small space without extra setup. The cradle dock can tilt from 15 to 45 degrees for better viewing angle depending on the users.
Part of the POS solution is a piston grip. It has a built-in 8000mAh power bank for longer operation, and a power status LED visual reference. There is a physical barcode trigger on top side. This piston grip can double as a convenient handheld barcode scanner when putting it on the tablet.
The G0830 has been selected for the Taiwan Excellence Award 2017, Computex Best Choice Award 2016 in smart retail category in Taipei, and also wins the Mobility for Business Award 2016 for the best terminal innovation in Paris.
