ID TECH and Innovative Controls Systems (ICS) Announce the EMV L3 Certification of ICSs CAGE solution with the VP5300 for Outdoor and Unattended Payment Applications

August 29, 2019

Wind Gap, PA, August 29, 2019 Innovative Control Systems (ICS), a leading manufacturer of outdoor kiosks, and ID TECH, a designer and manufacturer of payment devices and components, announce ICSs EMV L3 certification with their CAGE solution and ID TECHs VP5300 unattended credit card reader.

Kevin Detrick, President of ICS, explained that Unattended Payments are different than attended. A cashier is not present to assist the customer or reset the terminal. Customers get frustrated, leave and may never come back. ICS developed a patent-pending process to pass the states and error codes from the reader to the payment application in the kiosk, not the PIN pad. Prompts on the PIN pad are missed, and the transaction fails. ICSs payment application will send corrective commands to the card reader and video prompts to the cardholder in order to manage the EMV reader and the customer through the transaction.

The solution, utilizing End-to-End encryption with the VP5300, is bundled with a PCI program simplifying merchant compliance. ICS is implementing this solution into their existing line of ruggedized, outdoor kiosks while also offering this solution to other unattended verticals.

ID TECH is ecstatic Innovative Control Systems has completed their EMV L3 certification with the secure unattended VP5300 bundle said Jason Hall, Unattended Product Manager. This is an excellent solution for car washes and other unattended environments that need to start accepting chip and contactless payments.
