Scheidt & Bachmann ticket machine

The new machines are capable of accepting credit/debit card and smartcard payment as well as cash, with support for six different languages helping to enhance the overall user experience.

Their touchscreen user interfaces will make the ticket purchasing process faster and more intuitive – thereby maximising each station’s operational efficiency.

The engineering team at Scheidt & Bachmann selected Zytronic’s PCT sensors for the project for a number of factors: Reliable touch performance irrespective of weather conditions, bespoke construction and, rugged construction.

Matthias Augustyniak, MD, Scheidt & Bachmann said: “The touchscreen technologies that we used in previous machine designs, such as surface acoustic wave, could not offer the high degree of robustness. This meant units could be subject to downtime, while repairs were carried out.”

“The sensor mechanism for these machines needed to be completely suited to outdoor deployment. It had to be resistant to vandalism and unaffected by rain, snow and other harsh weather conditions,” added Ian Crosby, sales and marketing director for Zytronic.
