Product Description

VeriFone CR 600 Check Reader

The VeriFone CR 600 Check Reader can protect your business from significant losses due to bad checks, while providing convenience for your check-paying customers. The VeriFone CR 600 is the first check reader that combines full programability, remote downloading, self-diagnostic and universal connectivity in one unit. This leads to improve productivity and reduces check fraud at the point of sale. The fast check-reading capability of the CR 600 makes a check-based payment as convenient as a credit card sale. Its horseshoe design allows the VeriFone CR 600 to capture MICR data at high read rates. It can even read folded or crumpled checks. Plus, it’s more reliable and accurate than readers with a straight-line transport-increasing customer throughput and user satisfaction. The horseshoe shape saves countertop space. And the VeriFone CR 600 is available with a special base that integrates with VeriFone terminals. The formats for data output to the host are fully user-definable and can be tailored to fit the requirements of whichever check verification or guarantee services you use—now and in the future.

What’s more, the CR 600 can be configured through remote downloads—when connected to high-function VeriFone terminals or electronic cash registers(ECRs). Or locally-through specially formatted checks. When the VeriFone CR 600 is powered, it automatically runs a diagnostic program. If it detects a problem, a specific explanation code appears on its display, allowing you to convey the exact nature of the problem to the help desk. With the reduced need for hands-on servicing-maintaining an installed base of CR 600 units requires a fraction of the resources compared to other competitive products.

The VeriFone CR 600 check reader comes standard with an RS-232 port for communication through your TRANZ®, OMNI® or Everest™ terminals. It supports both RS-232 and RS-485 protocols, integrating with the major ECR/POS systems. As an option, the CR 600 also supports IBM ECR and PC keyboard wedge interfaces. As the magnetic-stripe driver’s license proliferates, merchants will become increasingly interested in a triple-track, high-coercivity reader. These readers enhance the speed and accuracy of entering driver’s license information for processing check transactions. The VeriFone CR 600 check reader has an expansion port to support a VeriFone triple-track reader. So it protects your investment today by ensuring a growth path for tomorrow.
