Parking ticket machine Citea
The Citea parking ticket machine is a tailor-made solution for intelligent on-street parking management. Thanks to its high level of modularity, key components such as the payment system, power supply and integrated communication can be combined to provide individual solutions. The Citea is fitted with a solar panel to guarantee energy-efficient operation. Parking fees can be paid quickly and easily in cash, by card or via mobile phone. Customised colour schemes and individual advertising opportunities round off this optimum range of services.
Flexible payment methods
The Citea can be completely tailored to suit any parking situation: it allows coin payments or, optionally, can accept banknotes, payments by credit or smart card or even payments using state-of-the-art contactless payment methods such as Mifare cards. If secure card payments with PIN entry are required in accordance with EMV regulations, the Citea can be fitted with a card reader and PIN pad terminal. Card payment authorisation is made online and is encrypted.
The graphical and backlit LCD display or optional 8″ TFT touch display guides the person using the parking space as well as service personnel through the menu clearly and securely in the language of their choice. The integrated brightness sensor ensures that the display and controls are optimally illuminated. Coloured service LEDs draw direct and immediate attention to important maintenance work that needs to be carried out by service personnel, e.g. changing paper rolls in good time.
High security standards
A safe, in combination with a reinforced steel substructure and base frame, safeguards earnings against theft and vandalism. In addition, customer-specific locks guarantee individual access security. Efficient coin checkers and electronic slot locks provide effective protection against counterfeit money and attempted manipulation. Self-locking exchangeable coin boxes ensure that earnings can be transported both swiftly and securely.
Comprehensive communication options
The Citea is equipped with a USB, LAN and serial port as standard. Communication via GSM/GPRS modem or LAN makes it possible to establish a connection with the CityLine back office system to perform remote machine diagnostics and programming. This means that service calls can be kept to a minimum and trips to empty the machine of money and change paper rolls can be optimally coordinated. Alarm signals are registered and immediately relayed to CityLine if any unauthorised attempt is made to access the machine or safe.
