Hardware Telium Payment Terminal

Adds support for Payment Terminals using Telium protocol

Technical Name:
  • Odoo Version

Hardware Telium Payment Terminal

This module adds support for credit card reader and checks printers using Telium protocol in the Point of Sale. This module is designed to be installed on the POSbox (i.e. the proxy on which the USB devices are connected) and not on the main Odoo server. On the main Odoo server, you should install the module pos_payment_terminal.

The configuration of the hardware is done in the configuration file of the Odoo server of the POSbox. You should add the following entries in the configuration file:

  • payment_terminal_device_name (default = /dev/ttyACM0)
  • payment_terminal_device_rate (default = 9600)

The Telium protocol is used by Ingenico and Sagem payment terminals. It is based on the Concert protocol, so it can probably work with payment terminals from other brands. This module implements the protocol E+ (and not the protocol E), so it requires a Telium Manager version 37783600 or superior. To get the version of the Telium Manager on an Ingenico terminal press F > 0-TELIUM MANAGER > 2-Consultation > 4-Configuration > 2-Software > 1-TERMINAL > On Display > Telium Manager and then read the field M20S.

You will need to configure your payment terminal to accept commands from the POS. On an Ingenico terminal press F > 0-TELIUM MANAGER > 5-Initialization > 1-Parameters > Cash Connection and then select On and then USB. After that, you should reboot the terminal.

This module has been successfully tested with:

  • Ingenico EFTSmart4S
  • Ingenico EFTSmart2 2640 with Telim Manager version 37784503
  • Ingenico iCT220
  • Ingenico iCT250
  • Ingenico i2200 cheque reader and writer

This module requires the Python library pycountry version >= 16.11.08. To install it, run:

sudo pip install pycountry

This module has been developped during a POS code sprint at Akretion France from July 7th to July 10th 2014. This module is part of the POS project of the Odoo Community Association http://odoo-community.org/. You are invited to become a member and/or get involved in the Association !
