Dover Fueling Solutions (DFS), part of Dover Corporation that delivers advanced fuel dispensing equipment, electronic systems and payment, fleet systems, automatic tank gauging and wetstock management, is pleased to announce that it has reached a record-high of 30,000 active Tokheim Crypto VGA™ outdoor payment terminals throughout Europe.
When the first Crypto VGA terminal was installed in Luxembourg in June 2006, the concept of a single, secure, intuitive touchscreen, used for both PIN entry and customer guidance, was considered revolutionary. Thirteen years later, there are more than 30,000 Crypto VGA terminals installed across Europe, actively processing hundreds of millions of fuel and bank card transactions every year. Since the Crypto VGA terminal was first produced, over 40,000 units have been manufactured as two successive model types from the DFS factories in Bladel, Netherlands and Grentheville, France. Today, the Crypto VGA terminal is available in 23 countries where it is certified in accordance with both domestic and international card scheme requirements with some of the largest bank acquirers in Europe.
From the very beginning, security has been a strategic and essential element of the Crypto VGA terminal. Today, the Crypto VGA terminal remains at the forefront of security; an attribute that enabled the product to become the first outdoor payment terminal to have been validated compliant with the most recent Payment Card Industry PIN Transaction Security (PCI PTS) 5.x security requirements in 2017. This guarantees the continued lifecycle of the payment terminal until at least 2032, making it a safe investment for DFS customers. Point-to-point encryption can also be fully enabled in combination with Tokheim Online Authorisation and Switching Environment™ (OASE), DFS’ payment gateway.
The Crypto VGA terminal is a highly versatile outdoor payment terminal that now boasts NFC contactless and QR barcode readers, as well as providing for a range of service activities. In addition, it offers value added functionalities such as car wash sales, e-vouchers and bank note acceptance.
There are also retrofit options available for DFS’ Tokheim and Wayne Fueling Systems dispensers, as well as third party models, creating an excellent upgrade opportunity for site owners.
Vice President and General Manager of DFS’ Global Systems Business Unit Kurt Dillen said, “The Crypto VGA is our most secure outdoor payment system and we’re incredibly proud to have over 30,000 fully operational terminals throughout Europe. With a design that stands the test of time, alongside the continued investment in security and new applications, we hope to see the Crypto VGA terminal continue to grow its European installation base even more in the years to come.”
