The ACR330 Validator is a reliable and efficient solution for Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) systems that require cashless payment options in various transportation modes such as buses, ferries, trams, and railways.

Using high-speed 13.56 MHz contactless (RFID) technology, the ACR330 supports ISO 14443 Type A and B cards, MIFARE®, and FeliCa. It also features an embedded barcode scanner for transactions using print or mobile barcodes.

The ACR330 offers advanced wireless connectivity options for data transfer such as GSM/GPRS, 3G/4G, and Wi-Fi. It also has an optional GPS feature for fleet management and distance-based fares. The device is built to withstand harsh environments and has an IP54 rating for dust and water protection, as well as Military Standard MIL-STD-810 for Shock and Vibration.

For MasterCard® Contactless and Visa PayWave® support, we recommend our latest model, ACR350 Secure Validator with QR code scanner. Please visit here for more information.

It also comes with an optional back mount for support on the pole. Contact us at [email protected] to learn more about the ACR330 Validator and how it can improve your cashless payment system.
