Triton releases EMV software for US ATMs
Triton has launched new v3.2 software and with it, EMV readiness for many of its models in the U.S. market. The company previously has equipped and installed EMV-enabled machines in Canada, the U.K., Mexico and South Africa.
The new software is identical to v3.1 with the exception of added EMV support. Currently v3.2 is available for the Triton X2 ATM series, which includes all RL/FT/RT models as well as Traverse. The EMV software for XScale and 9XXX ATMs will be released in the coming months.
Triton plans to release v3.2 on production ATMs by mid November 2012, though EMV card readers will not be available until mid-December. Triton said that it will activate EMV on new units ordered with the optional EMV card reader. If a card reader is added to the product later, the customer will be have to activate EMV from the field.
Even with the EMV card reader installed and EMV software activated, the ATM will continue to support magnetic stripe cards and will otherwise function just as it does with v3.1. Once the customer's host processor has certified EMV software and is ready to support EMV transactions, EMV can be enabled at the Triton ATM.
