The TOPP-certified terminal without a PIN pad has DK approval, and TA 7.2 and DC POS 3.0 support cash register / machine interfaces for ZVT and optional MDB. cVEND plug is the foundation for terminal variations, is approved by several network operators and is certified according to PCI PTS 5.1 and EMV Levels 1 and 2. cVEND plug supports closed-loop and open-loop payment systems and mobile NFC wallets.

Full integration

Mount cVEND plug flush for near-invisible integration into your machine. The small module works behind the glass and plastic fronts of validators, table top machines or parking ticket machines, supporting a variety of payment methods.

Partial integration

Wherever the cVEND plug cannot be fully integrated into a machine with a glass or plastic front, it can be be partially integrated using a front housing. With an installation height of only 10 mm, the terminal can be integrated in a visually appealing way.

Surface mounting

Eliminate precise cutouts with a surface-mounted cVEND plug. This option only requires three holes for the connections and mounting. The 33 mm height of the distance frame enables the terminal to easily be mounted on a metal machine front.

cVEND EXT.VEND Vending Extension Board

The Vending extension board offers an MDB interface and digital input / output for relay control in fixed-price systems. Maintenance or communication with a cellular modem takes place via the integrated USB host interface.

cVEND plug SAM Extension Board

Designed for public transportation applications the cVEND SAM Extension Board offers high vibration resistance for buses and trains, ensuring safety and durability. Additional applications such as VDV-KA, ITSO, Cipurse or Mifare can be implemented with it. cVEND SAM offers four SAM sockets (ID000 format), with availability of an additional socket for μSD memory cards.

Front housing

With a height of only 10 mm, the front housing enables the terminal to be partially embedded. The robust design offers strong protection against vandalism, and simple assembly makes the housing durable indoors and outdoors for all types of machines.

Distance frame

With the weatherproof distance frame (IP65), cVEND plug can be mounted indoors and outdoors on any surface, including glass, plastic or metal. The only holes needed in the machine’s front are for attachment and to connect the cable. This makes the terminal ideal for retrofitting any machine. It‘s only 33 mm high, so it fits discreetly into the front of the machine.
