Artema Hybrid is an all-in-one terminal for magnetic stripe and chip card transactions with a single “hybrid” card reader. For use in stand-alone or multi-lane configurations, Artema Hybrid provides merchants with a powerful and flexible card payment solution.
Hybrid reader for easy card authentication
On insertion of the card, be it with magnetic stripe or chip, the terminal provides fast authentication, ensuring straightforward and consistent handling. This avoids possible confusion, since the cashier does not have to determine whether the card has a valid chip or only magnetic stripe.
Multiple communication options
With a variety of built-in communication modules and a wide range of interfaces Artema Hybrid can be connected to most communication networks (PSTN, ISDN, LAN) and peripherals such as cash registers and printers. As a result, the terminal can be used in multilane configuration as well as standalone, with or without connection to cash register systems. In all cases, its advanced communication modules guarantee fast and trouble-free transactions.
Secure PIN entry
Artema Hybrid’s integral, high performance PIN pad provides maximum security and processing speed for all transaction types, from debit and credit cards to proprietary schemes and e-purses. At the same time, the high PIN shield ensures that PIN entry is secure and discrete.
Ergonomic and modular design
Artema Hybrid integrates card reader, secure PIN pad, and printer in a single compact and ergonomic design, allowing fast and convenient transactions. The terminal can be easily handed from cashier to cardholder for PIN entry. Additionally, it can be supplied without printer, for use connected to cash registers. In this case, it provides a dedicated interface for the cardholder, with amount entry and ticket printing managed through the cash register.
