Merchant Facing Device (MFD)
Equinox has developed the low cost Apollo Merchant Facing Device (MFD) to be paired with the highly-secure Apollo Customer Facing Device. Because no card passes through the MFD, no expensive security hardware or software are required on the device. The MFD provides the merchant interface while the CFD handles all sensitive cardholder data and communications. This allows the Apollo platform to provide merchants with a cost-effective yet feature-rich and robust customer-facing solution.
The MFD features a 100 MHz 32 bit Cortex core processor, a white LED, backlit display and a speedy 20+ lines per second printer. The printer provides quick, drop-in loading of thermal paper rolls with its easy open clamshell design.
