Pay and display systems

imageIn the UK, pay and display systems are used in a variety of parking areas including on-street parking, car parks and multi-story car parks. A pay and display system is most commonly used for monetising a vehicle parking area. They are simple to operate as they rely on the customer purchasing a ticket and displaying that ticket on their dashboard or windscreen. The details on a parking ticket will usually include the date, time of purchase, expiry time, cost of the ticket, location and the machine operator.

To ensure people follow this system an on-site parking attendant is required to check tickets are valid and on display. This attendant is also responsible for issuing parking notice charges should they find a vehicle without a valid parking ticket.

Compared to parking metres the main advantage of pay and display machines is that one machine can serve multiple vehicle spaces at a time. At Gateway Automation we offer custom manufactured parking systems to meet your requirements.

The Elite LS pay & display machine is made from 2.5mm steel with a reinforced armour plated vault and a 9mm reinforced vault door with no external lock. The vault is secured with an electronic locking and key locking system which is manufactured by KABA who are one of the leading providers of innovative access solutions within the security industry. This is an important feature as the Elite LS houses a 6 litre cash box. The machine can hold 4000 tickets on one roll and can accept either the Euro or the Pound depending on your location. It can be powered by solar or mains electricity, features a 5” monochrome display, you can choose the colour of your machine and it is also illuminated to make it visible in low light.

Additionally, our optional extras allow you to customise your machine to meet your individual needs. These options include:

  • chip & pin payment system
  • bank note acceptance
  • alpha-numeric keypad
  • GPRS (Web ASLAN) for real time monitoring
  • additional 2nd printer that increases ticket capacity to 8000
  • spare cash box
  • hardlite™ vault protection
  • hybrid power system which uses a combination of mains and solar power
  • anti-graffiti coating
