    The Orbit SAM is fully compliant with the ITSO specification, making it a popular choice for use within public transport environments in the UK. For added flexibility, the reader is also able to accept both ITSO and EMV standards simultaneously. Thanks to support for the G2K API and the complete control of the device offered to developers, the Orbit SAM is ideal for use in complex custom applications.
