MagTek iDynamo Card Reader API: Requirements

To run successfully, this sample demo requires the following:

Kiosk Pro Enterprise, version 7.8 or later

While the JavaScript included in this code sample is compatible with earlier versions of Kiosk Pro, those versions require a different 'kiosk_functions.js' file to access this functionality.

For live projects, we highly recommend hosting the 'kiosk_functions.js' file with your own files, whether they are placed on a server or stored locally on the iPad, and checking the app's change logs before updating. The 'kiosk_functions.js' file referenced in the sample may be updated or moved without warning - if you are referencing this file directly, this would prevent your kiosks from working correctly.

To run the demo on earlier versions of the app, generate the 'kiosk_functions.js' for that version from the settings menu under 'JavaScript API > Generate API Functions File'. Transfer the file from the device using iTunes so you can place it where you need it, then change the reference in the sample code to point at the file.

Connection to a Supported MagTek Card Reader

Kiosk Pro integrates the SDK for the MagTek iDynamo card reader, which connects to the iPad through either the 30-pin or Lightning port depending on the model.

As the iDynamo is only available as an encrypted reader, this API returns the information as both a masked plain-text string and an encrypted string. In this scenario, you would be responsible for processing (and, if necessary, decrypting) the string.
