Alpha POS - Kitchen Display System (Bump Bar)

Available for: Hospitality POS

Superior Reliability
The Alpha POS KDS Bump Bar, one of the most popular "bump bars" on the market today, is built to withstand the most demanding requirements of kitchen systems and other industrial applications. The keypad is built with high quality stainless steel dome disk switches that last more than 3 million cycles, and the unit is enclosed in special, high durability plastic that is UV-resistant and prevents color fading. All units also receive full functional and quality control testing before leaving Alphs POS Services.

Easy and Advanced Programming
The Alpha POS KDS Bump Bar is one of the easiest and most programmable bump bars on the market. It is fully downward compatible with the IBM bump bar. All 17 tactile keys are programmable and the Alpha POS KDS Bump Bar supports a full set of alphanumeric, control, function, and international output codes. Using a powerful Windows-based programming utility that stores key definitions in a data file, an integrator can create a program layout for multiple keypads, rather than programming key by key, keypad by keypad.

Multitude of Interfaces
The Alpha POS KDS Bump Bar I/O ports allow daisy-chaining of other input devices. It provides either a PS/2 or RS232C output and supports a true keyboard wedge function, operating with or without a computer keyboard. The Alpha POS KDS Bump Bar also offers an internal beeper and comes with various legend sheet options.
