Plymouth puts new Strada P&D parking terminal to the test

UK Headquarters, 2005 Parkeon, the worlds leading provider of parking space management solutions, is introducing an additional version of its Strada Pay & Display (P&D) parking terminal. The new model known as the Strada Rapide - features an ergonomically-designed transferable cash box to make the coin collection procedure as fast and uncomplicated as possible.

"We are happy to assist Parkeon, who have provided us with an excellent service since installation of the City’s on-street Pay & Display machines in April 2003, by testing their latest model", says Sid Evans, the Council’s Parking Development Officer.

Power consumption management has been optimised on the solar-powered Strada Rapide to increase further its daily ticket-issuing capability, making this environmentally-friendly and easily installed variant a viable proposition in more locations. Solar power eliminates the Health & Safety risks associated with mains electricity in relation to installation and parking personnel and the general public; although a mains operated version is available, as well as an autonomous battery model.
pd_parkeon.jpgLifting and removing the coin box from the Strada Rapide is designed to be a safe and easy procedure. Before withdrawing the box, collectors can anticipate its weight as the receptacle is supported by the opened vault door, which is at the optimum height so they do not have to bend. The cash box can be removed with either the left or right hand, and the handle is easily grasped, even in severe weather conditions. The opening aperture is the full width and depth of the cash box, so that it only has to be tipped-up once to empty the contents speedily and completely.

Unparalleled security is also a feature of the Strada Rapide, which incorporates special materials to further enhance resistance against attacks. It is fitted with a highly secure electronic locking mechanism that is fully-shielded inside the vault. Once opened, the collection door provides no internal access to secure areas.
The electronic locking mechanism can be re-programmed, along with the key, in the event of key loss. This saves time and money in the aftermath of such an occurrence and minimises machine downtime.

Such security features are designed to protect parking revenues and ensure that drivers will always find operational machines – which also helps to maintain revenue streams and reduce parking disputes, respectively.

Two new semi-metallic finishes: Trinity Green and Titanium Grey, are being introduced for the new machine.
