COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Cryptera, a world-leading provider of secure payment solutions, hereby announces the launch of an outdoor payment terminal focused on providing a more cost-effective unattended payment option for manufacturers of transaction kiosks, drive thru applications, ticketing machines and more.
The Cryptera UPT 7000 is a rugged point-of-sale terminal designed for outdoor use, ultimate security and payment processing efficiency. The integrated device allows customers to insert their card, view a secure display message and securely input their PIN numbers all on a single unit.
The significant growth in debit card transactions is leading to increased demands for PIN entry of the card holder.
Traditionally in the U.S., manufacturers of devices that require unattended payment have used modular payment solutions consisting of separate displays and card reader devices with no need for PIN entry. The cost of integrating the devices and performing repairs to individual pieces can often be costly and the approach also lends itself to security concerns, such as an increased chance of card skimming and data theft by fraudsters able to break into the unit.
The Cryptera UPT 7000 helps to solve many of those security and cost issues by providing a solution that combines End-to-end Encryption and the necessary components of an unattended payment system into one solid unit designed for high traffic and usage in an outdoor setting. In addition the UPT 7000 is certified and compliant to PCI security standards and prepared for International EMV transactions with use of chip card and PIN code.
“Unattended payment deployers, such as gas stations, must promise their customers the highest level of security when they input their personal payment information and the UPT 7000 goes a long way towards supporting that promise,” says Brian Schleisner, Senior Manager of Cryptera. “Its cost-effectiveness helps everyone all the way up the supply chain.”
The UPT 7000 is ruggedly built, with a gray polymer casing and is able to operate in temperatures as high as 150°F and as low as -91°F. A bright LCD screen, encrypting PIN pad and integrated card reader all in one ergonomic designed unit greatly improves the user experience.
The UPT 7000 is currently seeing success in:
The UPT 7000 will be shown and demonstrated at two upcoming industry events.
- Ticketing kiosks
- Drive thrus
- Pay-at-the pump services
- Gaming kiosks
