PINpad terminal and certified SEPA payment application for Germany

PIN image


cVEND PIN terminals are highly integrated and powerful payment terminals that combine a high-resolution color display, a contactless reader and PIN entry in a compact housing. As a special feature, it offers a vandal-proof stainless steel PIN pad in full size with haptic feedback for secure, barrier-free PIN entry.
Six additional buttons allow convenient confirmations and corrections while enabling the the configuration of the terminal. In addition to LAN and several RS232 and USB interfaces, the terminal has a standard MDB connection for power supply and operation in vending machines.

The FEIG cVEND PIN is the first machine terminal to be approved for solo operation without a chip card or magnetic stripe reader. It supports the new “Tap & PIN” process for purely contactless payments over 50 euros.
An optional hybrid card reader for chip cards and magnetic strips is also available for all cVEND PIN models.


SEPA Payment Application

cVEND PIN variants with SEPA App include a complete payment application with integrated level 2 kernels for the german debit card "girocard", credit cards and mobile payment as well as a connection to german Payment Service Providers ("Netzbetreiber") via the ZVT Poseidon protocol, comparable to the purely contactless TOPP models. This variant can be integrated as a full-fledged payment terminal in machines and is ready to use with a german Payment Service Provider contract.
