Hypercom has announced its L5300 and L5400 multilane payment terminals that are PCI approved.

The terminals are part of the L5000, a family of customer-facing multipurpose, multimedia terminals.

Hypercom’s L5000 family connects to any point-of-sale register system via numerous communications formats including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. To maximise flexibility and minimise upfront costs, the L5000 also features a modular contactless reader for easy in-field upgrading to contactless card and NFC technology.

The product lineup enables in-store use beyond the traditional checkout line, including in-aisle product locating, barcode price checking, health insurance card processing at the pharmacy, gift card loading and wedding registry processing at kiosks.

The L5000 features an integrated ADA compliant keyboard, a side-lit keypad, Braille characters and a headphone jack to assist the visually disabled. It also has a full VGA color display and hardened glass capacitive touch screen providing the industry’s brightest and most legible interface for interactive multimedia advertising.  

Additionally, the L5000 product family includes a cradled, cordless Wi-Fi or Bluetooth hand-over device that lets clerks at jewellery, cosmetic and other high value counters bring the payment device to the customer, thus enabling the employee to stay with the customer throughout the sales process, and do so without unsightly cables.

Hypercom’s multilane products are powered by a 400 MHz processor and Linux operating system.
