Security Card Reader

The SCR100 is a Magnetic Stripe and Integrated Circuit Card (ICC) reader that is able to process EMV level 2 transactions. The SCR100 is compliant with the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) and meets Secure Reading Exchange of Data (SRED) specifications v4.1 which provides very high level data security. The payment data will be encrypted by the method defined in Visa Data Secure Platform (VDSP) that helps merchants prevent sensitive account holder data from being compromised. The SCR100 includes VDSP hardware and software point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization.

The SCR100 supports End to End Encryption that is based on Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES), Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) security algorithms and with Derived User Key Per Transaction (DUPKT) key management. The SCR100 has two tri-colors LED as visual indicators and a single-frequency buzzer as audio indicator. It has a detachable cable to support RS232 or USB. It is very reliable with over a million magnetic stripe swipes and half a million smartcard insertions. It meets FCC class B, European Conformity (CE), Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI) agency approvals.
