Original Press Release:
Rail Transport Fare System with Ticketing and Gate Control
Advantech, the leading industrial computer manufacturer, is pleased to announce the ITA-1000 series of industrial platforms, dedicated to railway fare management. When it comes to booking office functions, including ticket vending and gate control, reliability and stability are paramount, and with the ITA-1000 series, peace of mind is designed in. Built-in Intel® Atom(TM) N270 processor and low-power, fanless architecture mean durable, trouble-free operation. NVRAM means records are preserved even if power is lost. Comprehensive front panel LEDs make status available at a glance.
The ITA-1000 series comes in three distinct configurations, each keyed to a certain task in railway fare management. The ITA-1200 serves as a booking office machine; the ITA-1100 is a ticket vendor, and the ITA-1000 is a gate manager. Together, they provide fast, scalable, high capacity passenger fare data processing and communications.
Two 10/100/1000 Mbps LANs put these machines on the net. Display capabilities vary with configuration, from dual display CRT + DVI (or CRT), to dual display CRT + LVDS, to single VGA for the BOM. Ample serial ports and digital I/O likewise vary with the configuration, up to 12 serial ports and 16 channels of digital I/O. All models carry eight USB 2.0 channels.
The ITA-1000 series carries NVRAM on board, and can take up to 2GB DDR2 SDRAM. Support for two SATA channels and one Ultra ATA EIDE channel round out HDD (or possible SSD) capacity.
