Rethink Retail & Kiosks with Spartadatas' Hardware Refresh, the iPad Kiosk Pro with Swiper Secure Premium Enclosures

Homestead, Florida, May 02, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Designing a novel enclosure that presents the iPad beautifully while adding card present pci compliant data capture functionality is what separates our products from the rest of the pack.

The Charging architecture is built into the PCI compliant Swiper Module which then connects directly to a cable that can be switched for ether 30 pin termination or 8 pin termination thus supporting the entire iPad lineup. Customers can appreciate this flexibility allowing them to easily use what iPad they already have and simply enclosing it using the Pro Enclosure lineup.

The Premium Enclosure uses a uni-body design architecture. The process begins with a Solid Billet Slab of Premium Aluminum Alloy which then undergoes the milling or carving of the uni-body construction of the patent pending design. This technique is used in many high end fabrication types including Apples' own Mac Book Pro Lineup. After the Parts are milled a series of special finishing techniques are used including a chemically treated bath that permanently strengthens and tones the color to spec on the aluminum alloy for a unique metallic finish. The Pro lineup also uses special diamond cutter technology to achieve a duo surface finish look using a matte finish and a polished bevel finish that shines. The final product is presented in a unique magnet based product packaging with the Spartan Logo hinting at the beautifully executed enclosure within.  Onyx, Gold and Silver will be the three main color options at launch and will include premium options like Brand delete and White Label opportunities for those looking to brand and customize the enclosures to fit a certain look and feel.
