Secure EMV Chip Card and Magnetic Stripe Reader
Familiar Form Factor and Functionality
The Augusta is a secure EMV chip and magnetic stripe reader that offers 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.
Easy to Integrate and Use
The Augusta is very user friendly and reliable. It is available in USB-HID or USB-KB
configuration and uses common HID drivers. Beeper, 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 designed with a metal wear plate to be able to support 1,000,000 magnetic stripe
operations and a robust chip card connector to surpass 500,000 EMV transactions.
