DT Research, Inc., a developer of information appliances for vertical markets, announced the WebDT 372, the latest addition to the line of WebDT mobile tablets. The WebDT 372 offers a 7-inch resistive touchscreen with robust processing in a durable design. The 372 is the first mobile tablet to offer options for fully integrated encrypted PIN pad and Magnetic Stripe Reader (MSR) for secure payment transactions lending to PCI compliance.
By encrypting customer data, users can be assured there is no risk for transferring highly sensitive debit card and credit card numbers from sales locations to collection server terminals. The customer can make a payment without losing sight of their card, even when in remote locations, on a cruise, in the lumber yard, or poolside, adding to the assurance of security. There are also options for barcode scanner, RFID reader, and smart card reader, for a variety of point-of-sale and service applications. As the MSR and PIN pad, as well as all options, are fully integrated into the WebDT tablet, there is no issue with improper fastening or theft.
With IP54 and MIL-STD 810G ratings, the WebDT 372 provides protection from water, dust, and shock vibration. An option for outdoor viewable screen and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection contributes to truly anywhere operations. The Intel Atom processor gives high performance with low power consumption, and support for Microsoft Windows or Linux operating systems add to the flexibility of integrating with other applications and systems.
With on-screen keyboards, an option for 2-mega-pixel camera, and a variety of accessories for charging and mounting, the WebDT 372 tablet offers seamless information capture for improved workflow. The WebDT 372 brings reliable performance on the sales floor, in the warehouse and in the field enabling service staff to provide a fast and secure experience for more personalized customer interactions.
The previously released WebDT 390 tablet, with 8.9-inch touch screen, will also now offer the encrypted PIN pad and MSR options. The encrypted PIN pad is PCI certified, securely transmitting a cardholder’s data, and the encrypted MSR supports TDS and AES encryption, complying with PCI-DSS requirements.
As with all WebDT products, the WebDT 372 and 390 can be remotely managed with the comprehensive WebDT Device Manager software. The WebDT 372 tablet and the encrypted MSR and PIN pad on the 390 will be available in Q2 2011.
