The 15A2 touchcomputer with dual video-display capability includes the choice of the industry-leading Elo TouchSystems touch technologies: AccuTouch five-wire resistive, IntelliTouch surface acoustic wave, CarrollTouch infrared and the company’s innovative Acoustic Pulse Recognition (APR) that blends the benefits of all three. The space-saving, compact design of the 15A2 touchcomputer offers increased flexibility for simplified integration of a variety of optional field-replaceable peripherals that it shares with the 17A2 touchcomputer and 1729L touchmonitor: three-track magnetic stripe reader (MSR); customer-facing display; biometric fingerprint reader; and 3-watt speaker bar with or without optional single line or omni-directional barcode scanner. A unique cable management design conceals cables from view, providing additional security from tampering and robust tie-downs for strain relief. The multi-adjustable stand offers flexibility to accommodate a variety of installation configurations and the stand is easily removed for secure mounting to countertops and walls. Serviceability is enhanced with easy access to the hard drive and compact flash through a slide-out drawer.

The COM1 and COM2 (external ports) serial ports on the ESY15A1 have an RJ45 connector (see connectivity drawing at bottom).

On these RJ45 connectors the following signal lines are not available:
Data Carrier Detect (DCD)
Data Set Ready (DSR)
Data Terminal Ready (DTR)

If your POS software/driver/device requires one of these lines, you may encounter problems (error messages, non working devices etc.).

It may be possible to tweak (disable hardware handshaking) the POS software/driver to ignore the missing lines (see attached for example on Epson TM-T88III), but the only viable solution may be to use a USB-Serial adaptor which the manufacturer guarantees carries all the signal lines.
