VeriFone Holdings has launched the Vx 700, an electronic payments module for kiosks, vending machines, ticketing devices and other systems where cash has traditionally been the primary payment method. Designed to meet PCI PED and EMV security standards, the solution integrates with VeriFone’s SCR710 secure card reader and an external contactless payments interface to provide a solution for multiple electronic payments options. The company says that the entire device, including keypad and high-resolution display, is built to fit into standard bill acceptor cutouts in an effort to make it easy to extend support for magnetic stripe, chip cards and contactless payments into traditional cash-only kiosks, ticketing and vending machines. VeriFone says that the solution features laser-engraved, petro-chemical resistant keys, vandal-resistant housing, an IP65 rating and is capable of withstanding temperature variations.
