Unattended payments solutions made simple!
How does it work?
To connect payment devices to any embedded computer, we use an USB connected e2c smart device hub. This provides all the physical interfaces required, such as CCTalk, MDB and serial. unattended payment solutions made simple!
The peripheral devices are controlled by iSocket Payment Device Manager running on the embedded computer. This provides support for all the device protocols such as CCTalk. The customer application runs on the embedded computer and communicates with iSocket using a simple high-level API.
For example, if the device was a bill/note validator, inserting $20 would result in the API message “NoteValidator:Received:$20”
No knowledge of payment device protocols is required!
e2c smart device hubs provide a full range of physical connectivity to peripherals over USB. iSocket middleware is used to provide all IO and protocols support for broad range of peripherals. Unattended payment solutions could not be more simple!
e2c’s Smart Connect series compute + connect modules are built on powerful i.MX6 ARM processors. Running embedded Linux, these modules run iSocket natively to support any connected peripheral device. The range includes both headless and multi-video modules with extensive device IO and host connectivity options.
e2c offer a range of compact PC/X86 powered embedded modules which combine high-performance compute solutions with our smart hub technology. The range spans from Intel Atom through to i7 solutions. This allows system builders to minimise the number of components required for payment solutions.
Example Unattended Payment Solutions
This example shows CC200 used in a smart vending application. The solution includes the following peripherals:
This example illustrates how it is possible to connect best of breed devices into an unattended payment solution.
With iSocket being cross platform any X86 or ARM platform can be used as the computing module.
Other Solution components
iSocket Enterprise Server and Enterprise Cloud provide robust and secure monitoring of complex machines comprising multiple peripherals. Built from the ground up to provide an IoT solution capable of both monitoring and remotely controlled connected machines.
e2c offer a full payment solution kits, comprising CC smart hubs, embedded PC’s and a full range of payment peripherals. Kits come with full wiring kits and out-of-the-box support for bundled peripherals. Just add them in your enclosure and the kits will be fully operational.
