System Requirement
ITA-1000 Series AFC Controller has played an important role in metropolitan automated fare collection systems (AFC) in China, Europe, and other regions. It meets the needs of urban metro and train stations and has been a great success worldwide, from Shanghai, to Singapore, to Milan. During peak hours, automated gate machine must serve as stable, easily maintained system to manage and maintain a steady flow in the volume of commuters. Automated gate machine ought to be stable and equipped with value-added system feature to protect against memory/data losses caused by power disturbances. ITA-1000 Series AFC Controller's design and F-RAM trait explain why many of our clients and partners have chosen ITA-1000 Series AFC Controller on gate machine application.
  System Requirement
ITA-1000 Series AFC Controller possesses a rich complement of I/0 interfaces that cater to the use of ticket vending machines (TVM), which integrates an LED display, bill identification equipment, LCD screen, touch panel, and coin charger. Since going to production, ITA-1000 Series has gained support from numerous system integrators, and has been widely deployed in hundreds of TVM systems worldwide. TVM systems must run 24/7 in tough working environments which include temperature extremes and impact from dust. Hence, ITA-1000 Series AFC Controller has been engineered with enhanced thermal flow. A fanless and hermetic design also greatly reduces the impact from dust and helps the systems overcome the challenges faced by their working environments.
System Requirement
ITA-1000 Series AFC controller is a compact, lightweight system designed for ticket kiosk and checking machine (TCM). TCM substantially benefits passengers by providing travel guidance, train schedule, and seat verification in addition to dispensing tickets. with connection to the Internet, LED screen and other. compact size, cost-effective and stable traits, ITA-1000 Series AFC controller is the best choice for TCM application. In the past few years, customers have had great success in the deployment of ITA-1000 Series AFC Controller for TCM solutions, especially in both Asia and European market. With its compact size and stable characteristics, the series will always be the best choice for TCM product offerings.
  Industrial Ethernet Switches for AFC Systems
To enhance system performance and reliability, Advantech's EKI-3000 series industrial-grade switches with their reasonable price and reliable quality are perfect for fare collection systems. This new generation Industrial Ethernet Switch creates a bridge between devices and network, its Ethernet ports, which support high-speed data transfers (100 Mbps for EKI-3525 and EKI-3528/ Gigabit for EKI-3725 and EKI-3728) for each port, are responsible for connecting the main board, hard disk and diverse devices in fare equipment to collect more data while sending back to control center. The robust features of EKI-3000 series includes dual power input (8.4~52.4 VDC) and wide operating temperature range (-10~60°C) are dedicated to operating in areas of unstable power and rugged environments therefore ensure a reliable and uninterrupted operation for a fare collection system.
