Smart card connectors protect against theft

Smart card connectors that deliver increased theft protection have been introduced by C&K Components. The CCM01 and CCM02 smart card connectors have increased protection against PIN number theft, which eliminates the capability for a hacker to insert a bug on the connector and extract the PIN details. The connectors comply with VISA PCI PED requirements.

Widely used in point of sale (PoS) or transaction applications, the CCM01 and CCM02 connectors are housed in a compact package. Each model offers a different level of protection relative to the specific terminal architecture.

The surface-mount RoHS-compliant products feature 100,000 and 500,000 card insertion cycles, respectively, dust-protected card detection switches and EMV compliance. They also have sufficient room underneath the connector to place space-sensitive SMT components. Additional metal pegs enable a higher value of resistance to card insertion force up to 40N.
