Inside the box you will find your PIN pad and the wire already connected to the back of the PIN pad.


The Connection

**BEFORE connecting the PIN pad to the terminal please UNPLUG the power source from the Verifone Vx520 Terminal. The terminal must be unplugged anytime the PIN pad has to be connected or disconnected.**

The PIN pad wire connects to the RS232 port on the back of the Verifone Vx520.
