Alpha POS - Kitchen Display System (I/O Unit)

Available for: Hospitality POS

Cost Effective
The Alpha POS KDS I/O units, when used with an Alpha POS KDS control module, can replace costly PC workstations, network hubs and network software. To add more stations, simply increase the number of Alpha POS KDS modules. No special interface cards or additional hardware is required for the Alpha POS KDS module to communicate with peripheral devices.

Reliable and Rugged
The Alpha POS KDS I/O unit was designed to meet the most demanding requirements of an industrial network. There are no disk drives, fans or mechanical parts that can easily fail. The enclosure is a heavy-duty zinc die cast case for extra ruggedness. Every module uses snap-to-lock connectors for secure connections. The Alpha POS KDS communicates with other workstations and the Alpha POS KDS control module using network communications protocols and topologies with proven reliability. It features high common-mode noise rejection network wiring. The poll/select protocol functionality avoids data collision, and the cyclic redundant checks virtually eliminate all communication errors. A zero single-point-of-failure configuration is also supported. Alpha POS KDS connections provide for a redundant data path to prevent network interruption due to a line breakage. The Alpha POS KDS has low power consumption that results in low internal temperature rise for higher mean time between failure. In addition, the units are tamper proof, with no on/off or selection switches and no adjustable devices
Ultra Compact
The Alpha POS KDS has a very compact form factor - only 1.0"h x 6.3"w x 5.1"d. Two mounting brackets enable these modules to be mounted almost anywhere - on a wall, ceiling, table top or under a counter. This enables it to be used in a wide variety of applications - on a production line, in a restaurant's kitchen system, etc. - despite severe space constraints.
