Bus Face Payment Card Device with EMV reader

Model No.cVEND Plug


1)Designed for contactless open loop credit cards & closed loop public transport tickets

2)Flush integration into validators, on-board computers and other devices

3)Flexible secure Linux platform to develop own applications

4)Low power standby mode for solar powered solutions

5)PCI 4.x and EMVCo approved

6)Small footprint


1)cVEND plug is a member of the cVEND terminal family and brings contactless card reading, financial transaction processing and secure communications technologies together in a single, flexible product platform.

2)cVEND plug is designed for flush and almost invisible integration into non conducting front plates and is suited for public transport and parking applications like validators, driver consoles, parking meters and various other cashless devices.

3)cVEND is PCI PTS and EMVCo approved and supports contactless payment cards from MasterCard, VISA, American Express, Discover and RuPay as well as closed loop cards like mifare, ITSO, VDV-KA, calypso and cipurse. Of course, mobile NFC wallets are supported for payment and ticketing.

4)cVEND plug is designed for automotive applications and is electrical and mechanical tested according the related standards.

5)The low power standby mode makes it also suited for solar and battery powered applications.

6)The cVEND specific secure Linux operating system together with an easy to use SDK and the cVEND MultiApplication architecture makes application development easy and fast.

7)Its innovative security concept with Crypto Plug-Ins supports symmetric and asymmetric encryption, keyderivation and remote key loading mechanisms and makes cVEND capable for E2EE solutions and all common secure payment protocols.

8)For ticketing applications an optional extension board with 4 SAM sockets and one socket for µSD memory cards is available.
