Kiosk maker using energy-saving fan

LOUISVILLE - KIOSK Information Systems Inc. has built a new fan cooling system that will save an estimated 3,300 kilowatt hours of energy per year at each of its new computer kiosk terminals - enough to power 900 homes.

Consumer kiosks used for things like bike sharing, banking and parking have grown rapidly in popularity in recent years. At the same time, the privately held, Louisville-based company, has seen "phenomenal growth," said Cheryl Madeson, marketing manager.

As KIOSK grows, its employees want to offer customers both the lowest possible carbon footprint and cost savings, Don Stark, KIOSK's chief technology officer, said in a statement. In addition to the energy savings, the new equipment costs about 20 percent less to produce than current units, he said.

"The economic benefit to an outdoor deployer makes the fan conversion even more compelling," Stark said. "The combined savings associated with omitting the air-conditioning unit and using conventional (personal computer) technology is substantial."

KIOSK has built more than 100,000 systems since 1993 for Fortune 500 clients such as AT&T, Wal-Mart and Safeway. The company does not disclose revenue other than to say it is "one of the top" kiosk manufacturers in the world, Madeson said. Other kiosk makers include industry giants such as Duluth, Georgia,-based NCR Corp., which reported 2009 revenues of $4.61 billion in kiosks and related machinery, Coinstar Inc. and IBM Corp.
