The Ingenico iSC Touch 250 is a customer-facing, color touchscreen device that features signature capture and supports MSR (magnetic stripe), EMV (chip), and NFC (contactless) payments. Directly connected to your point-of-sale via a wired Ethernet connection, the device protects your transactions with a powerful combination of EMV technology and point-to-point encryption (P2PE), making each transaction secure and PCI compliant.

Benefits & Features

By integrating the iSC Touch 250 with your CardPointe Integrated Terminal solution, you can:

  • Minimize your scope of PCI compliance with point-to-point encryption. Your CardPointe Integrated Terminal device encrypts sensitive card data and transmits it over over a secure HTTPS connection.
  • Accept all payment types, including EMV (chip), magnetic-stripe, and NFC (contactless).
  • Request and accept cardholder signatures.
  • Easily add devices without making changes to your existing integrations.

What's New

Date Updated: 10/18/2022

Our Bolt family of integrated solutions is becoming CardPointe Integrated Payments.

Over the coming weeks, your terminals will receive an update with minor changes, including an updated default theme and branding for terminals that are not configured with custom branding.

Terminals will update automatically during the nightly reboot window; therefore, we ask that you leave your terminals powered on and connected to your network overnight. Once your terminal is updated, you may notice the following changes:

  • If you are using the default device wallpaper and theme, the Bolt wallpaper and logo will change to CardPointe Integrated Terminal.
  • The Bolted and Unbolted statuses will change to Connected and Disconnected, respectively.

Additionally, for Ingenico Lane terminals, the PIN entry prompt for EMV PIN Debit cards will now displays the following additional information:

  • The Application Label, which describes the EMV application name read from the card (for example, "US Debit").
  • Instructions for bypassing PIN entry:

    "Press the Red X to Cancel or the Green Circle to Bypass"

The following topics provide information for troubleshooting your Ingenico iSC Touch 250 device.

Device Disconnected

  1. Verify that you are using the provided multi-point mono connector (Ethernet) cable and power supply. The power supply plugs into the splitter on the Ingenico multi-point mono connector cable.
  2. Verify that the Ethernet jack on the multi-point mono connector cable is plugged securely into your router, modem, networking switch, or Ethernet wall jack.
  3. Verify that your device was obtained from the CardPointe shop, or your software provider.
  4. Consult with your IT administrator to verify that the Ethernet port being used has access to the Internet, and that your internal network allows CardPointe Integrated Terminal connections. This will ensure that a firewall is not blocking the connection.

Device Connected but Unable to Connect to Application

  • Confirm with your software provider that the device configuration is correctly set within your application.
  • If the device configuration is set correctly, contact CardPointe Support for assistance.

Device Restarting Unexpectedly
