Features and benefits of the NDiS B337
Built to connect the Smart City
The NDiS B337 and NDiS B337-4C have been designed to fit various smart city applications. They both support 12 VDC power input, making them highly adaptable to common power supplies, and the external power button means it can be independently powered down when integrated into another system. Finally, the NDiS B337-4C provides extra COM and USB ports (4 x RS-232 and 2 × USB 2.0) as the primary connection types for triggering mechanical connections such as parking gate booms, door locks, and turnstiles.
Sleek design for innovative indoor applications
The NDiS B337 has a sleek design, making it the perfect addition to any indoor environment. In the doctor’s office the NDiS B337 can be used as signage in entrance areas or as a computer to facilitate telehealth, telemedicine, and virtual consultations. In retail, the NDiS B337 can be used as retail signage or to support a digital price tag system and automatic stock counting. Finally, the NDiS B337 can work in a self-service post office kiosk, allowing people to package, measure, label, and send their parcels without staff assistance, saving personnel time for more critical tasks.
Tough enough for outdoor environments
Setting up the NDiS B337 in outdoor spaces is easy with its compact enclosure protecting it from rain, dirt, and direct sunlight. Uses include smart signage with built-in facial detection to show relevant information to users, a wayfinding station to provide information on nearby attractions, or the passenger information display at train or bus stations. Car parks can also benefit as the NDiS B337 can perform license plate recognition, display open parking space information, and take payments as the ticketing station. Other applications include a phone charging station, post office parcel station, and access control through facial recognition or access card.
For smart city applications ranging from doctors’ offices to parking lots, the NDiS B337 and NDiS B337-4C are the best choices if reliability and flexibility are the priority.
