Voyager Farebox
The Voyager from Fare Logistics, Corp, is a validating electronic farebox. While the typical farebox will process and securely house monies, the Voyager has the power to do more than the traditional farebox functions.The date centric Voyager is designed and manufactured to provide years of reliable service. It is built around a tough plated steel frame with stainless steel exterior panels designed with security and access in mind. A modular component design permits the farebox to be configured to address specific vending and collection requirements, yet provides adaptability and expansion for future adding functionality. Each off the shelf, service proven, commercially available components was selected to be easily interchanged in a true “plug-and-play” fashion. As such, there is no component customization to hamper end of life replacements. With its industry leading “best in class” functionality, the Voyager processes;

  • ISO/IEC 14443 compliant contactless smart cards.
  • ISO/IEC compliant magnetic stripe cards.
  • Cash  (in a number of currencies)
  • Secure standard Barcode media

The Voyager also issues low cost machine readable media and receipts.

The Driver Display Unit houses the electronic farebox engine. Built around a commercial processor designed for harsh environments with 256Mb of non-volatile expandable memory, the Voyager has processing power that is unmatched. This touch-screen control unit is the perfect combination of functionality and performance to efficiently operate the Voyager Farebox. There is a built in DGPS and WAAS compliant GPS interface, a secure IEEE compliant wireless network interface, and the software for the fare system device. Each Voyager fare transaction and event has over fifteen data elements associated with each record.

The Voyager utilizes a secure wireless communications process to transfer this information to our central system and TransFare™ application, where this information can be reported in one of the many pre-formatted reports provided. The data can also be manipulated into user customized queries using our optional industry leading OLAP cube functionality.
