This is a mobile payment terminal with a touch screen.

Power and Charging

The e280 is supplied with the following:

  • An internal rechargeable battery
  • A USB-C charging and data cable

When the payment terminal is not connected to power, press the button on its right-hand edge to switch it on and off. To switch off, hold down the button for approx. 8 seconds.

The payment terminal automatically switches itself on when it is connected to power. When connected to power you cannot switch it off. To restart it press the button on its right-hand edge for approx. 8 seconds.

The e280 cannot operate reliably if the battery charge level is low. Once the charge level reaches 10 % percent the IPS application warns that battery levels are low. When you see this warning, you must charge the device.

Network Connection

The e280 connects to your network through Wi-Fi. The connection parameters are configured through the e280 Engineering Menu.

This section describes the steps you must do to configure the e280 network parameters for connection to IPS. To connect to IPS you must configure the e280 for Client mode connection, with Auto-connection enabled.

The e280 is supplied with the following default network parameters:

  • DHCP: ON

This is set for convenience. You can use the Engineering menu to configure static network parameters.

  • Auto connection: Disabled

Auto-connection is disabled by default to allow easier initial network connection.


To connect to IPS configure the IP address and listening port of IPS and set the TCP mode and autoconnection as follows:

  1. Enter the e280 Engineering menu.

  2. Select the Connection option.

  3. Select the Wi-Fi option and configure the settings as below:

Enable SSL:NO
TCP Mode:Client

Host Setup

Do the following:

  1. At the Select Add Host: field, enter the IP address of IPS host (e.g.

  2. Enter the IPS listening port (e.g. 9080).

  5. Select Exit.

  6. Exit from the e280 Engineering menu.

The e280 now attempts to connect to IPS on the IP address and listening port you just configured. A Connecting message appears on-screen. If connection to IPS does not succeed, the e280 shows a Waiting to Connect message for the configured Auto-connection timeout interval. Then it attempts to connect again.
