ATEX Certification for PAX A920 Android Mobile Payment Terminal

· Tech

PAX Technology, a leading international supplier of secure electronic payment terminal solutions, announced today that its A920 SmartPOS terminal with PIN-on-Glass functionality is now ATEX certified.

ATEX certification is a European Union directiveto safeguard the safety of products used in explosive environments, such as petroleum forecourts. To comply with ATEX health and safety requirements, the A920 has gone through rigorous spark tests and has special coatings on the mainboard and battery, ensuring the battery will not dislodge in the event of the terminal being dropped.

The A920 is the world’s most advanced ATEX certified payment terminal, packed with the latest PCI 5.x and NFC contactless certifications, inbuilt cameras for code scanning, a longer lasting battery and fast thermal printer. However, what really distinguishes this device from others is the high definition touch screen display which offers a completely different user experience for attendants and customers alike.

The ATEX certified A920 runs Android 7.1 and connects to PAXSTORE, an open-platform marketplace and advanced terminal management system, from which petrol station owners can download useful business apps, creating the ideal pay-at- pump solution when it comes to security, efficiency, customer convenience, and experience.

Bringing an ATEX certified A920 to market further strengthens PAX Technology’s position as the most dynamic payment terminal supplier. Whether instore or outdoor, PAX solutions always meet the highest industry security and compliance standards, helping businesses process payments with total peace of mind.​- Mark O’Flynn, VP Sales at PAX
