MagTek's PIN Pad Goes USB

Product: USB-compatible IntelliPIN PINpad
Company: MagTek, Inc.

As more merchants and financial institutions upgrade to USB standard personal computers, MagTek is making the move with them. This spring, the company introduced a USB-compatible version of its IntelliPIN encrypting PIN pad/swipe reader that supports debit and credit card transactions at the point-of-sale.

A dot matrix LCD guides customers through the swiping process. The product measures 3.25" X 4" X 7" and takes up minimal counterspace.

The IntelliPIN pad's three-track magnetic stripe reader reads ISO-standard cards and driver's licenses. The device is secure and tamperproof and protects PIN encryption keys. It also supports DUKPT and Master/Session key management and single DES, triple DES, IdentiKey and DUKPT algorithms. You also can upgrade the IntelliPIN to read and write smart cards.

MagTek still offers the IntelliPIN in a keyboard wedge version and RS-232 serial port configuration, and both are compatible with most PCs in use today.
