ACR300 Bus Validator

The ACR300 Bus Validator supports all smart cards compliant to ISO14443 Type A & B, Mifare and Near field communication (NFC). By virtue of the embedded powerful 32bit ARM 9 processor, ACR300 Bus Validator can complete typical transaction within 0.2 second including recovery and backup, after the presentation of the card. Special Anti-collision algorithm effectively prevents the collision conflict when the user has many contactless cards put together, e.g. in his purse.

About ACR300

ACR300 Bus Validator is designed specifically for use in Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) systems for public transport.

The ACR300 Bus Validator supports all smart cards compliant to ISO14443 Type A & B, Mifare. By virtue of the embedded powerful 32bit ARM 9 processor, ACR300 Bus Validator can complete typical transaction within 0.2 second including recovery and backup, after the presentation of the card. Special anti-collision algorithm effectively prevents the collision conflict when the user has many contactless cards put together, e.g. in his purse. Special anti-tearing mechanism also guarantees the transaction to be either completed or rejected, avoiding any data corruption and unexpected transaction error. 

There are two card slots for holding Purchase SAM (Secure Access Module) cards to ensure the security and integrity of the transactions. Furthermore, the data storage in ACR300 Bus Validator is tailor-made for AFC applications and ACR300 stores as many as 30 pages of information with 2,000 records per page. The memory capacity is more than enough for storing 30-day transaction records and blacklists.

With the integrated smart card readers, graphical LCD, audio, LED indicators and reliable waterproof casing, ACR300 Bus Validator is perfectly suitable for various types of AFC systems, e.g. for buses, ships, trams and other transportation means.

The latest version equipped with GPS, enables you to locate the vehicle and set fare flexibly with reference to distance.
