See Colors at Night
Axis Communications - Booth 2905
Axis Q1602/-E Network Camera is the market's most light sensitive camera able to produce color images in complete darkness. The camera incorporates Axis' Lightfinder technology, which effectively allows the IP camera to see detail in low-light conditions, as compared to conventional day/night cameras that provide a black-and-white image in darkness. Having demoed this camera for transportation officials around the world, the consensus is that it will change the face of perimeter protection, detection and nighttime surveillance. The Lightfinder technology is especially beneficial for critical indoor and outdoor surveillance of applications, such as on highways, railways, airports, transportation terminals and port protection.

New Bill Recycler Reduces Cash Handling Costs
Crane Payment Solutions - Booth 1355
The Bill-to-Bill 300XE bill recycler can reduce the number of visits to ticket vending machines for cash pickup and change replenishment by more than two-thirds, thus dramatically decreasing cash handling and processing costs for operators. These operational improvements are achieved while at the same time leading to higher rider satisfaction since riders can receive change back in bills rather than a bulk of coins.
The Bill-to-Bill 300XE can recycle up to 270 USD banknotes and has a 1,000-note cash box. It can recycle up to three different denominations and features true closed-loop loading. The true closed-loop loading solution of the Bill-to-Bill 300XE ensures replenishment cash being transported between the revenue department's back office and the TVM is fully protected and automatically accounted for end-to-end.
Keeping Transit Covered
Duo-Gard Industries - Booth 5323
For the latest in bus, transit and bike shelters as well as canopies, walkways and special purpose shelters visit Duo-Gard Industries for its broad product line of outdoor structures, consistent with LEED philosophy.
The latest entry in the expanding line of bike shelters specifically addresses the issue of security. The new Harbor model includes options for secured gates plus code, key or card access.
Styled as a three-sided, quarter-round structure, the shelter features translucent multiwall polycarbonate glazing in a choice of opal, clear, bronze, green or blue tints.
Framing for the Harbor model is heavy-gauge steel or aluminum and includes surfacemounted anchors. Standard sizes include 8' x 12' – 24' – 36' – 48'. As with all Duo-Gard bike shelters, custom sizes are available.
Duo-Gard also has a new line of solar stations, including standard and custom models. The solar-powered stations are scaled to the size of the project and the charging needs involved. A turnkey approach includes in-house design, engineering, fabrication and installation services, as well as technical support to specify, plus field support on photovoltaics, inverters and metering required to connect to the grid. Also, the structure's canopy of solar panels is engineered with continuous components, completely sealed against rain and snow.
The stations can be engineered to provide free services or to function with machines for payments, including credit cards, creating a profit center that would help recoup the initial investment. These solar stations are net zero energy structures, producing power that can be both used and stored.
