Efficient parking management has a name: DESIGNA

In 1951 DESIGNA became Germany's first producer and supplier of parking meters. DESIGNA's history of innovation continued. At the end of the seventies, the Kiel-based enterprise was able to to introduce its first fully automatic parking system.

The company's programme has now been further developed to encompass fully comprehensive solutions, from the design and planning phase right through to the installation and service of fully automatic parking systems. The experience DESIGNA has acquired over the last 50 years continues to benefit customers at every stage of the project.

Product information






Internationally standardised, unlimited scalability.

PM ABACUS constitutes the essence of our knowledge of parking technology. All of our planning, realisation and support expertise is combined in this system, which sets new standards. Not only in regard to reliability and user friendliness but above all where integration and networking options are concerned.

Right from the very beginning, PM ABACUS has been consistently developed to satisfy the demands of large-scale regionally and internationally networked projects. This has been achieved by implementing universally accepted hardware and software standards, through an open and transparent interface concept and, last but not least, through virtually unlimited scalability.

As a result of these characteristics, PM ABACUS is also the ideal system for medium-sized set-ups with between 5 and 25 terminals – with the option of integrating these into a larger network at a later date. Irrespective of the size of the project: PM ABACUS is the economical and above all the future-proof solution that protects your investments in an ideal manner.
