The ddm hopt+schuler smart card connector 840-0L is the most robust card reader, designed for heavy duty applications in tough environments – inside and outside. It combines 50 years of experience in card reading technology.
The 840-0L smart card connector accepts any smart or chip card according to the ISO format. The smart card connects on the ISO 8 pins via a landing slider which reduces the wear on the pins. The pins themselves are shaped in a half sphere and are additionally secured by a pin protection, making them more robust and allows the connector to be resistant against vandalism. In many cases, smart card connectors are exposed to rough usage through either foreign objects or falsely inserted cards.
Adding to the robustness of the connector, it is equipped with reinforced side walls and a debris slot in the backwall to withstand 500,000 cycles in even challenging environments. The 840-0L smart card connector comes with an integrated ESD deflector, which discharges any electromagnetically loaded cards before they hit the ISO8 pins.
In order to achieve a PCI certification, the 840-0L connector can be combined with our 825 anti-tamper secure cover. We are experts in securing smart card connectors and we take care of the physical security of them for you. Our 840-0L smart card connector and our pre-evaluated 825 anti-tamper secure cover are a synchronized solution together. The security concept can be scaled to exactly match the needs of the payment terminal, removing all obstacles on the way to successful PCI certification.
