Devices and Hardware


Installation Process

  1. Remove the two screws on the back of the kiosk, located near the top edge of the device. This will allow you to open the kiosk.
  2. Open the kiosk. Place some form of support or padding in front of the device to support the weight of the front of the kiosk, and prevent it from tipping forward. 

  3. Unbox the CC reader, both the cables, and the antenna

  4. Remove the mounting plate on the back of the CC reader, saving the 4 screws for later use. Discard the plate.

  5. Remove the clear plastic cover on the back of the reader and set it aside

  6. Unwrap the cables and save the twist ties to re-bundle excess cables.
  7. Thread the white plug of the Nayax cable through the hole for the reader on the kiosk front and plug it into the reader

  8. Determine if you are going to use SIM or Ethernet for your VPOS Touch installation. Nayax devices are "plug and play" for ethernet connection, similar to a laptop. Ethernet should only be used when there is poor or no cellular reception in the location. All of our devices come with cellular data and an antenna. You will need this connector to connect your VPOS Touch to Ethernet. In order to connect a VPOS Touch via ethernet, you will need a separate adaptor called the VPOS Touch Ethernet Adaptor (also called the RJ11 Male to RJ45 Female Cable).

  9. Thread the phone jack (RJ11) end of the communication cable through the hole in the kiosk front, and plug it into the CC reader.

  10. Connect the external antenna: this will allow your SIM will connect to the cellular network. Push the antenna connector into the port on the back of the CC reader, making sure it clicks in. It will push in straight, with no twist needed. 

  11. Remove the screw holding the soundbar to allow easier routing

  12. Thread the antenna cable through the hole in the kiosk back with the corrugated loom, then through the hole in the kiosk front for the credit card reader. Tuck any excess cable in the back under the rear cover if possible.
  13. Replace back cover and route the cable up and through the gap in the top of the cover. Attach the magnetic base of the antenna to the metal housing on the kiosk back.

  14. Connect the cable end marked COM1 to the FTDI USB dongle coming from the PC. Make sure to feed the cable through the corrugated split loom as it passes up behind the soundbar. You should try to use both COM1 or COM2 if you are having issues with VPOS Touch not communicating with the kiosk.
  15. Reattach the soundbar screw with the cables running behind it.

  16. Reinstall the back cover on the Nayax unit

  17. Use the mounting screws from the CC reader bracket to install the CC reader into the kiosk front. You’ll need to use the outermost set of holes drilled into the plastic bezel to mount the reader.

  18. Connect the power barrel connector (labeled card reader power) to the female barrel connector on the Nayax cable
