The AURA represents the next and most innovative generation of pay & display machines specially developed by Metric to satisfy the most rigorous demands of today's and tomorrow's parking needs. The AURA offers you state of the art technology which will be invaluable in helping you to manage your parking operation. This new generation of machines have been designed to give reliability, ease of use and are simple to maintain even in the most demanding of environments.
Security Key ManagementThis new, advanced high security feature using electronic keys, pushes out tradition while driving forward customer needs. The keys can be programmed, tracked and assigned to specific personnel.
For complete peace of mind, networked machines will also have remote facilities to enable the immediate cancellation of keys. Changing locks because of lost keys will become a thing of the past.
Security of TransactionsA key feature of the machine is the security of transactions and the cash handling system. The method for transporting cash into the cashbox has been designed to prevent criminal interference and speed up the cash transfer.
The proven design of the current cashbox has been incorporated into the AURA, which offers the automatic sealing and locking of the box on removal, making the transporting of cash a safer process.
Access to the vault is secured by an electronic mechanism with no visible locks. The vault area os composed of a series of stainless and hardened steels and composite material designed to resist attack.
Both Cash and Cashless Payments with New Chip & Pin OptionThe AURA coin system has a new design which incorporates faster coin validation and swifter transport to the coin box. A 15 coin validator allows for the incorporation of dual currency where required. The Euro note reader and system has been upgraded and offers optimum reliability and robustness. New Chip & Pin verification for credit card payments is available. Using the same card reader, the AURA will also accept most SMART cards including the in-house 'Metric Card' configured to suit customer requirements, 276 card, Mi-Fare (new) and Swiss-cash for cashless payments.
Electronic LockingA configured Dallas kay is used to activate a time sensitive unlocking sequence on both the upper casework and secure pedestal area. For easy exchange of the the cashbox, a drop down door on the pedestal is lowered 90o to a horizontal position, which acts as a shelf to support the cash box. The main vault door slides smoothly downwards to allow access.
Keypad OptionsA 12 button piezo SMS keypad will be available as an option and can be used in conjunction with card readers, the Metric Space Network System or for vehicle registration systems. Chip and Pin machines will have their own unique card reader and Pin pad. The Pin pad can also double up as the machine key pad if required for the Space network or vehicle registration entry.
Space NetworkThis newly developed system can be used on or off-street, to control parking spaces by zone and offers a 9,999 space capacity. When combined with a GPRS Network, this system alllows all machines to provide 'top-up' payment points. The system incorporates the 'Skeye Pad', which can be hand-held or mounted on a desk or vehicle dashboard.
The advantages are:
- Remote and efficient enforcement
- Office, hand-held or in-vehicle monitoring
- Customers can top up their parking from any machine
- Alternative to Pay-on-foot systems
