Signature pad and branding tool in one: Wacom STU-530

With its 5’’ high resolution colour LCD screen, the STU-530 is the ideal signature pad for use at the POS or customer contact point. It offers a very comfortable signing experience with an improved, thin design and a low-profile, flat surface. The new design reflects the market requirements for a modern, robust, ergonomic and reliable signature pad. In addition to capturing handwritten signatures, it can be utilized for branding, marketing or advertising purposes, making it a valid marketing tool also. 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity allow a natural signature capturing, fulfilling legal standards. For secure and safe transactions an AES 256 bit encryption and RSA 2048 bit key exchange is included in the pad. Each unit is assigned a unique hardware ID in order to determine the exact unit that was used for a particular signature. The Wacom pen can be tethered to the pad so it can’t get lost. The STU-530 is made for heavy stationary use especially at counters and check-out systems.
