ID Tech Augusta EMV Reader
The IDTech Augusta is a combination magnetic stripe and EMV chip card reader that connects to computers via USB port. It’s designed to be used with virtual terminals, allowing businesses the convenience of using their computer to accept cards while also providing the enhanced security of dipping EMV chip cards.
IDTech Augusta Features
The Augusta boasts ease of use and connects quickly to computers. It also offers both visual and audio cues to signal successful or unsuccessful transactions. The reader will last for at least 1 million magstripe swipes or 500,000 dipped EMV transactions.
If you want to mount the Augusta instead of leaving it sitting on your countertop, it has mounting holes in the same location as the previous model MiniMag II.
The Augusta reader is EMV Level 1 compliant, offering end to end encryption to reduce security risks.
