UL Terminal Test Station

UL Terminal Test Station


  • Automates the terminal brand test certification process
  • Uses a ‘robot’ to do the time consuming test operator's work
  • Allows you to create and add your own proprietary test cases

Who is it for?

The UL Terminal Test Station is the most complete test solution for Acquirers, Acquirer Processors, Merchants and Terminal Vendors who are tasked with performing high volume and repetitive test cases, on payment acceptance devices, such as POS terminals, mPOS devices and tablets.

Why do you need it?

All payment schemes mandate proper testing before allowing payment acceptance devices to be connected to their network infrastructure. Testing payment devices is often a manual and repetitious process. It involves various test scenarios and requires a test operator to manually perform each test one by one. This is not only very time-consuming, there’s also a large risk of human error.

The UL Terminal Test Station assists you in performing the required terminal testing processes in the most successful and efficient way possible. By using the UL SmartTouch to do the test operator’s work, such as tapping, dipping, swiping the card and entering PINs into the card reader, you minimalize the need for human interaction.

What is inside?

UL Terminal Test Station consists of the following components:

  • UL SmartTouch - a unique solution for automating terminal testing. This ‘robot’ is capable of running through all test cases selected by UL Brand Test Tool for Unattended Testing, without the need for human interaction. It contains two robotic arms with the ability to press buttons on PINpads and touchscreens, a motorized card feeder for inserting cards into the terminal’s card reader, and a camera.
  • UL Brand Test Tool for Unattended Testing - a test tool based on the UL Brand Test Tool that provides the ability to execute the brand test cases in an automated fashion. It allows you to perform a full brand certification regression test with minimal involvement from a test operator.
