The KDC500 combines chip-and-PIN and MSR payment transaction technology with 1D/2D barcode scanning and NFC capabilities that support Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows mobile/PC over Bluetooth technology.
January 8, 2015, Princeton, NJ – KOAMTAC®, Inc. today announced the release of its new KDC®500 Mobile POS Companion, the newest addition to its KDC product line. The KDC500 combines chip-and-PIN and MSR payment transaction technology with 1D/2D barcode scanning and NFC capabilities that support Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows mobile/PC over Bluetooth technology.
Measuring a scant of 49mm wide by 117mm tall and 25mm thin, the KDC500 is a sure fit grip for users, uniquely designed for any sized hand. Its design is complete with a back-lit LED keypad that is aesthetically pleasing and suitable for all high-end major retailers.
The PCI compliant detachable EMV/MSR/Barcode/NFC sled design provides a secure and convenient user payment transaction and barcode scanning experience. Historically, the chip-and-PIN payment solution was adopted primarily in EU countries. However others, such as the US, have begun to adopt the EMV technology as well. As a result, KOAMTAC has developed the most advanced mobile payment companion. Being that it has a traditional magnetic stripe reader, as well as the newly implemented EMV functionality, the Mobile POS Companion allows businesses to take payments with existing swipe cards, as well as support those implementing the newly adopted EMV cards without changing of systems.
“KOAMTAC has built a complete Bluetooth barcode data companion portfolio over the last 10 years, and continues to provide the most compact, power efficient devices on the market,” stated Dr. Hanjin Lee, President and CEO of KOAMTAC. “The KDC500 is 50% smaller and lighter than its competitors, but with its ultra-efficient power
management technique it enables a long lasting operation; up to a few weeks on a single charge.”
The KDC500 comes complete with a 1D laser or 2D imager barcode reader option. The 1D laser barcode solution provides an economical and fast scanning experience for budget conscious users. The 2D imager provides a high-end scanning solution that provides generous barcode scanning capability and the ability to scan all major 2D barcodes, such as QR and PDF417 codes. The EMV/MSR/NFC features provide full transition options with innovative KTSync® data collection and application generation tools. KTSync will have both barcode and payment configuration options available.
