Consumers benefit everyday from the incredible convenience that network technology brings to financial transactions. With many products that have small form factors but do not compromise in performance or reliability, Moxa has helped connect retail devices to a central network, establish 24-hour video and motion surveillance, and coordinate between devices in ATMs and kiosks.

Manage Self Check-out KIOSK Machines with Embedded Computers

Self check-out kiosks have become a common sight in grocery stores, retailers, and supermarkets across the world. For consumers, they offer a convenient, quick, and hassle-free way to purchase their items. For the merchant, the kiosk is a cost-effective way to reduce employee workload and track sales statistics. But beneath the now-familiar touch screens and bright plastic shells of these kiosk machines lies the less obvious complex electronics that power them. Moxa's embedded computers are well-suited for this role under the hood of self check-out kiosks or similar digital signage applications.

System Requirements
• VGA and LVDS dual independent display technology
• Security mechanism and quick system response for financial transactions such as bank approvals or account number verification
• Audio technology
• Versatile connectivity options: serial and Ethernet LAN connections
• Front-end computing and communication

The architecture of a retail self check-out kiosk is very similar to that of an ATM. It consists of an embedded computer connected to various peripheral devices such as a barcode scanner, touch screen monitor, card reader, receipt printer, and a back-end display and keypad for maintenance.
It is absolutely essential that self check-out system is able to verify bank account numbers and charge credit or debit accounts accurately. The Moxa V2101 is particularly well-suited for this task because it can communicate directly both with the local devices and with the bank approval system.
In addition, because V2100 embedded systems feature both VGA and LVDS display ports, they are ideal as digital signage controllers. With the two display options, the customer display in the front can continue to be used while maintenance personnel access the system from the back.

Electronic Kiosks for Retail Loyalty Programs

Loyalty programs have become popular among retailers to encourage loyal buying behavior from their customers. In general, customers are issued membership cards, and sometimes credit cards, which allow them to accumulate bonus points for making purchases. The bonus points can then be redeemed for cash or other rewards. Many retailers in Taiwan have installed electronic kiosks in their stores to make it easier for customers to check their bonus points and redeem rewards.
Electronic kiosks are very similar to ATMs, consisting of an embedded PC connected to various peripheral devices such as a touch screen monitor, card reader, keypad, and receipt printer. USB ports are a standard feature on computers today and offer a convenient way to connect peripheral devices. However, due to their compact size, embedded computers used inside electronic kiosks may have an insufficient number of port connections to accommodate all the peripheral devices.
Using an external USB hub expands the number USB connections the embedded computer can handle so all the kiosk's peripheral devices can connect to the embedded computer. As the first USB hubs in the market to receive USB-IF certification, Moxa's UPort™ 400 series ensures the most reliable and highest quality connections and data transfers for all the components inside an electronic kiosk. In addition, the UPort™ 400 series are DIN-Rail and wall mountable so it can be fixed to the panel inside a kiosk to save additional space.
