specifically designed to offer retailers a simple upgrade path to EMV from
traditional desktop magnetic stripe readers. This reader is able to provide
superior reading performance while also encrypting sensitive magnetic stripe
and EMV data. With all data encrypted, the Augusta can participate in
end-to-end solutions reducing the risk of data compromises.

 EMV/Universal SDK:

This reader has been designed to use ID TECH’s Common L2 Kernel and can
be utilized with ID TECH’s Universal SDK.  Augusta has been designed to use
ID TECH’s Common L2 Kernel and is fully compatible with ID TECH’S powerful
Universal SDK (which allows terminal applications to be developed in minimal time).

 Easy To Use:

The Augusta is very user friendly and reliable. It is available in USB-HID
configuration and uses common HID drivers. Beepers, LEDs and bidirectional
communication make interacting with the unit very intuitive. The location of the
mounting holes makes it easy to mount to any previous MiniMag II or SecuRED
mounting bracket. The Augusta is able to support 1,000,000 magnetic stripe
operations or 500,000 EMV transactions.

 Features:

  • Encryption capable 3-track MagStripe swiper and ICC reader
  • ICC reader that is EMV L1 certified and hosts the Common L2 kernel
  • Visual and audible feedback to signal good/bad card reads, etc
  • TDES and AES encryption algorithm for MagStripe and contact EMV output
