Tampered card readers

The Miura reader has a tamper detection system to detect unauthorised manipulation of the reader hardware (e.g. to eavesdrop on the PIN from the shopper). For example, the detection system triggers when somebody tries to crack open the case or when the reader is dropped onto the floor hard.

Once trigged, the Miura display will only show the "TAMPERED" prompt and will cease to function. In this case, please contact your hardware provider to get the item replaced.
