Orbit SAM is designed for contactless credit card payment, smart ticketing, and the development of custom point of sale solutions. A market-proven technology, it is ideal for transport operators and retailers, as well as for unattended applications in vending machines, parking meters and gaming kiosks. It enables businesses to offer the convenience of “wave and pay” functionality to their customers. The reader can be integrated into larger payment systems or deployed for standalone EMV contactless credit card acceptance.

As an ITSO-compliant device, Orbit SAM is popular with transport solutions integrators across the UK. It provides NFC capabilities for smart ticketing and meets ITSO’s full specification. The reader can combine ITSO and EMV capability, accepting both standards side by side.

The device supports our proprietary G2K API. The API provides significant flexibility for custom system development. It grants complete control over the reader and simplifies the programming of complex solutions. Gemini 2000 offers extensive documentation and engineering support to clients implementing the reader at points of sale.

Newly redesigned, the high impact plastic casing of Orbit SAM is contemporary and features a wide card landing zone for ease of use.
