In the Wild – Simon Outlet Mall Digital Signage Wayfinding Outdoor Kiosk

Simon Mall Outdoor Kiosk Digital Wayfinder and Digital Signage Review

Craig is a  senior staff writer for Kiosk Industry Group Association. He has 25 years of experience in the industry. He contributed this article.

Well we went back to the mall yesterday and while we were there we checked up on the digital signage unit installed at the brand new Simon Outlet Mall.  There are 10 of them spaced out around the outlet mall which was just completed 2 years ago and is the next generation outdoor shopping mall with over a 100 shops. Coloradans like being outdoor.

When we last checked before,   it was winter and the units seemed just fine.  Yesterday in Colorado it got to 95 and this unit is oriented to face West and East and direct sunlight.

The unit receives no mitigation or shelter from the sun or the heat.

While we there another customer wanted to try using our side of the unit because the other side wasn’t working. It was non-functional.

On the sunny side it was quite nearly impossible to read the display thru the glare, and yes, the screen was very hot.

On the software side I do like the interface and I will given them an A for the wayfinding.

Digital Wayfinding ROI

On the hardware side, the unit is attractive, it was relatively inexpensive to purchase, but it fails here in Colorado.  Another example of the budget not matching the objective. Now they need to replace the units and the overall costs will likely triple. Should have just got well-designed unit and paid the relatively low extra money.

For site location of the unit, I can understand the way they oriented it as direct right angle but the rest of the outlet mall is not laid out in right angles so they could’ve easily added 15 to 30 degrees of offset i order to avoid the direct sunlight.

Definition of not working is the screen was blacked out and when you touched it white spots would appear.  The screen was very hot for sure.  That was the status of the East side which had been heated up and blacked out.

Outdoor Display Tips From LG-MRI website

Sun is the biggest enemy of LCD displays. It will cause them to heat up, discolor, and eventually turn black. The sun hits the display surface with 1250 watts/m2 of energy, which will cause the temperature of the Liquid Crystal cell to increase significantly, even on the coldest of days. This can have the effect of literally causing the Liquid Crystals to boil and turn black, what is known as solar clearing.

We have all probably seen our phones turn off because they are “too hot” and need to cool down before use, but outdoor displays don’t have the luxury of taking a break when they are too hot. QSRs, media companies, and transit stations rely on the display being on and visible no matter what the ambient conditions are. Keeping LCDs cool is critically important to providing a 24/7 use in all environments, where temperature fluctuates and direct sunlight is always an issue.

LCDs have very low reflection and absorb almost 98% of the solar energy. This means that viewing an LCD outdoors works great because of the low reflection, but keeping it cool is the biggest challenge.

Good advice.

How To Build an Outdoor Kiosk

How to build an Outdoor Kiosk

Building an outdoor kiosk comes with a ton of questions.  How big, how bright, which devices, is Heating a consideration, is cooling a consideration,  which elements will it be exposed to (grease, oil, gasoline, salt, chlorine, etc). Which environments, etc.

The answer to the question how to build an outdoor kiosk is:

Generally the answer is build it for that purpose, outdoor.  A very good outdoor design is optimized so that additional mitigation elements like AC or Heating are minimized.  What kind of power consumption the screen requires in order to be usable/readable? What is the best computer to use?

Does it need to look like a box or can it be elegantly custom design?  The answer is it is often custom designed.

We are happy to answer the questions you may have.

Here is primer FAQ on How To Build Outdoor Kiosks

July 29, 2018

More and more uses are being developed for outdoor kiosks, but a successful deployment depends in large part on the vendor behind the project.

Interactive kiosks have become commonplace in restaurants, retail stores, health care facilities and other locations. But as technology improves and new applications come along, kiosks are becoming an integral part of the outdoor environment as well.

Opportunities for outdoor kiosk deployments include event ticketing, campus wayfinding and drive-through ordering, among others. Consumers today are increasingly pressed for time, and an outdoor kiosk can help provide the convenience they seek. It’s likely that as the technology develops, new and as-yet unheard-of uses will be found.

But all kiosks aren’t created equal, and that’s particularly true when it comes to those designed for outdoor use. Not only can working with an experienced vendor go a long way to determining the project’s success, it can help protect a deployer from regulatory liability and unnecessary maintenance costs.

In it for the long-term

Olea's "Seattle" Outdoor Ticketing KioskObviously, an outdoor kiosk should be designed from the ground up as a watertight enclosure, with watertight seams and insulated inner walls to protect internal components from heat and cold.

In addition, a reputable vendor designs to UL guidelines to certify that the units are waterproof and safe to operate in rain or snow, and routinely implements UL testing on first prototypes for customers who require UL certification. Factors such as power, grounding and mounting are more significant factors with an outdoor kiosk than one located indoors, making adherence to UL guidelines of critical importance.

Outdoor kiosks also need to adhere to the same Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines as indoor units, ensuring accessibility for all users. Failing to do so exposes a deployer to fines and lawsuits that can run into many thousands of dollars.

Olea Kiosks, for example, incorporated those concerns when it designed and built 56 ticketing kiosks that were deployed as part of a front gate renovation and new attraction opening at a major theme park. The ADA-compliant kiosks are used by thousands of visitors every day.

To ensure they perform flawlessly over their intended 5- to 7-year lifespan in a variety of outdoor conditions, the kiosks included a custom interior air conditioning mount and 2” thick insulation to ensure low internal temperatures in an environment that can routinely exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The enclosures were manufactured with powder-coated stainless steel and waterproof mounting points to protect from wet weather and eliminate the possibility of rust.

But while those are the obvious concerns, Olea took additional steps to address issues that may not have been so apparent.

The kiosks have a significant amount of artistic branding, allowing them to serve as decorative signage as well. The material used for the branding is designed to withstand fading, ensuring the devices look fresh and cutting-edge for years. In addition, because the kiosks are placed in a high-traffic area outside of the park near a number of retail and restaurant locations, they include a removable front cover to protect the touchscreen during hours when the park is closed.

The features Olea has built into its outdoor ticketing kiosks are embodied in the Seattle model. The Seattle includes a 19-inch high-brightness touchscreen with top-tier components built to withstand all types of weather conditions. Temperature control systems and IP65-qualified rating make the Seattle perfect for hot and cold weather deployments.

The Seattle also features a bolt-down base plate, allowing them to be securely mounted in places including sidewalks, parking lots and outside business entrances.

Capabilities include ticket and wristband printing, payment acceptance including EMV components and barcode scanning. The Seattle is ideal for event ticket sales, concessions and ride entrances.

Olea's "Detroit" Drive Thru Restaurant KioskWould you like fries with that?

Another area of growth for outdoor kiosks is the restaurant drive-thru lane. Combining the fact that a typical QSR does as much as 70 percent of its business at the drive-thru and self-order kiosks have been demonstrated to increase ticket averages by 10 percent or more, the marriage of fast-food drive-thru and self-order technology makes perfect sense.

In addition to the ability to automate the suggested selling process, self-order kiosks offer easy customization or orders, helping to boost sales. Customers may also indulge in the occasional splurge free of guilt, knowing the kiosk won’t be critical of their meal choices.

Fast food giant Wendy’s for example, has already rolled out kiosks at 300 of its stores with plans to add them to additional locations soon. Wendy’s CEO Todd Penegor told the investment news site TheStreet that locations with self-order kiosks are seeing higher average checks and customer satisfaction scores, likely a result of their ability to allow guests to customize their meals.

“It’s a part of the future of eating out,” Penegor said.

Olea’s entry into the drive-thru arena is its Detroit model. The Detroit includes a 32-inch sunlight-viewable touchscreen. (After all, who among us hasn’t used our hand as a shield so we can see an ATM or Redbox screen?) The multitouch touchscreen provides an ergonomic interaction — whether from a sports car or large SUV.

The enclosure is designed to reduce power draw and includes options for custom branding and overhead signage. The devices can be installed as either freestanding units, two-sided or in-wall, column or post mounts. They also include presence detection to “wake up” the units when customers approach and marine-grade stereo speakers for communication with staff.

One major national sandwich chain has seen their drive-thru sales increase by 15 percent at locations where they have deployed an Olea drive-thru kiosk.

San Diego Zoo Outdoor Ticketing KiosksKiosks for all seasons

Not all deployment locations are the same. Businesses are becoming increasingly aware of how their customers move through a location, and to maximize revenue they must be prepared to serve their customers wherever they may be. Kiosks can help optimize those transactions whether they take place inside the venue, just outside the front door or in the drive-thru lane.

Olea kiosks can be designed to withstand any environment, from summer in Arizona to winter in Minnesota. The company’s engineers have options for solid-state heating and cooling systems to complete HVAC systems designed specifically for kiosks.

Olea’s outdoor kiosks come with monitors from 8” to 84” or larger and can include payment, printers, solar, wireless and just about any other equipment that can be put into an indoor kiosk. The company uses only the most durable stainless steel and aluminum for its outdoor kiosks, running each through a multistage painting and plating processes.

Olea kiosks also feature automotive-style gaskets, compression-style locks, and unlike some galvanized electroplating and more, all to ensure an Olea outdoor kiosk will last as long and be a trouble-free as any indoor kiosk.

There are hundreds of applications suitable for an outdoor kiosk, and more are being developed every day. The best way to implement a successful outdoor kiosk deployment is to work with a vendor who is experienced in those deployments and has a track record of success. Olea Kiosks stands ready to help.

Ticket Kiosk FAQ – Olea Kiosks Information

Ticketing Kiosk

Improving ROI

austin webpTicketing Kiosks are not new to the industry of self-service applications as most major transportation companies and entertainment ticket distributors already utilize this solution in one form or another. Most of the ROI benefits of ticketing kiosks come in measurable increments, while others are subtle benefits that still ultimately impact a company’s bottom line.

Save on Employee Overhead Costs

One of the major benefits of the self-service ticket kiosk is the overall reduction in cost per transaction. This is primarily due to the reduction in costs related to employees since less staff is needed.

Improving Customer Satisfaction

Ticket Kiosks also help improve customer satisfaction by making transactions faster and more convenient. Monetary transactions are simplified as ticketing kiosks accept various payment methods including credit cards and cash. This also significantly reduces the time commitment for each transaction making it more efficient while preventing long congested lines.

Improve Access to Your Services

Installing ticketing kiosks on off-site locations can increase revenue by offering more distribution locations for customers to visit. This also contributes to lower infrastructure costs by making these transactions automated. In addition, ticketing kiosks allow owners to easily and effectively communicate with their customer base through well-constructed applications. These provide the ability to update content on special promotions, up-sell items and introduce new product or service offerings. Having the ability to communicate with customers increases revenue and the amount of sale per transaction.

Improve Efficiency

Ticket Kiosks also offer the security of knowing that there is no room for human error. The applications are completely accurate and eliminate the possibility of mistakes or miscalculations.

Our purpose at TECA is to provide best-in-class products to meet and exceed our customers’ needs.

CID2 Enclosure Cooling for Gas Chromatography System
Falcon Analytical and TECA Corp. collaborated to find a suitable solution in a hazardous environment. By incorporating thermoelectric air conditioners from TECA into the Calidus Ultra Fast Gas Chromatography system, plant on-site installation became more economical.

TECA Air Conditioners shown here as a standard part of
Falcon Analytical Calidus Ultra Fast system. Falcon Analytical is an OEM specializing in gas chromatography solutions.

Our through mounted units intrude into the enclosure a few inches. When installed properly, a closed loop system is created. There is no exchange of ambient air and enclosure air. TECA includes proper mounting hardware and environmental gaskets with all air conditioners.

The AHP-1800 Series Air Conditioner is offered in a variety of configurations.

Falcon Analytical uses TECA Corporation’s AHP-1801XPHC-1 Air Conditioners to enable safe installation of their Calidus Ultrafast Gas Chromatography system into hazardous locations. Some gas chromatography installations require NEC saftey ratings CID2, Groups A-D . TECA’s AHP-1801XPHC-1 Air Conditioner meets the safety requirements of all four Groups. Because TECA’s AHP-1801XPHC-1 air conditioner is rated for these environments, Falcon Analytical is able to use simple Z-Purge or X-Purge devices to make the whole enclosure safe for installations in: Refining, Petrochemical, Upstream, and other operations requiring such safety ratings.

The AHP-1801XPHC-1 offers plenty of capacity to handle the most demanding locations such as the Texas Gulf Coast and even Alberta, CA. In the photos above, note the plant installation where 3 Calidus Process Enclosures are shown. The AHP-1801XPHC-1 units are bottom mounted into each analyzer enclosure.
The TECA units have been in operation in Falcon Analytical’s system for more than 4 years without maintenance or downtime. This is a testament to the capability and capacity of the TECA air conditioner in a tough environment.
Falcon Analytical reports,
“And the analyzers have performed flawlessly delivering control quality composition data to the plant process control computer.”
The design of the Process Analyzer Enclosure allows far more economical plant installations because no climate controlled shelter is required even in very cold or very hot environments. Using TECA Model AHP-1801XPHC-1, simply protecting the Process Analyzer Enclosure from direct sunlight and precipitation is enough.

He was born on February 22, 1785. Nearly 200 years later, TECA Corp. was established and we were the first to marketthermoelectric enclosure coolers.
