Product information

Off-Street

PKE & PKM Lines

A common main feature in PKE & PKM is that the automatic cashier is not only a payment terminal but also a complete multifunctional station. With a compact design and latest technology the Automatic Payment Station can work as a manual cashier, so users can purchase parking products, get discounts or use promotions. Advertising can be included, too.

Both lines provide a low maintenance solution whilst maintaining efficiency during the demand required by high operation facilities. The Car Park Central Unit can be installed in the Automatic Payment Station, so the system becomes more robust and secure, always working (because when the communication with the Cloud Services fails, the Central Unit keeps controlling the car park system). This embedded Central Unit consists in an industrial solid state disk computer located inside an Automatic Payment Station, so no additional control room is required any longer and the system can easily work remotely attended.

Thanks to the Multi Car Park Platform, car parks situated across the globe can be managed by just one employee located anywhere, using a Smartphone or a Tablet.

All machines are European DDA-ADA standards EN 301 549 compliance.
