The Project: Rugged Kiosk for use in UK Prisons.

Why Nemacom? Nemacom were able to offer a bespoke solution, a custom built Interactive kiosk suitable for the most challenging of environments- use by Inmates on wings within Prisons around the UK.

The Application: Our objective was to develop and implement a self-service touch screen kiosk for the safe and secure delivery of key facilities to prisoners, In addition to improving service provision, of utmost importance was the product’s ability to withstand environments susceptible to accidental and malicious activity, as glass breakages can present a serious safety risk to both inmates and staff.

The SmartKiosk features a fully integrated 17-inch 3M MicroTouch System SCT7650EX flat panel TFT LCD capacitive touch screen, PC, fingerprint reader, 3-inch thermal printer and is sealed to IP65, protecting against dust and low pressure water. Hardware has been limited so the only input for the kiosk is via the touch screen.

It has an optically–clear laminated glass-on-glass construction with superior impact resistance and 86.5 per cent light transmission for brighter, crisper display images. The laminated construction meets EN/UL 60950-1 impact resistance safety standards and provides the necessary surface durability for rugged, unattended, public-access environments. If surface breakage occurs due to extraordinary impact, the lamination helps isolate the glass shards between the touch surface and LCD to protect the user. A conductive, adhesive-bonded flexible circuit tail replaces traditional solder connections and wire leads to facilitate a superior liquid and dust seal between the touch sensor and display bezel.
