Functionalities of BP-4000/CB

  • Real time, multi-area, multi-user operating system.

  • A single computer integrates the following functions: car park, license plate reading, control of vehicles’ access, pedestrians and lifts, and control of automatic doors.

  • Compliant with the most recently passed regulations: possibility of charging in fractions of minutes and printing of vehicle licence plate number on the entry ticket.

  • License plate reading via black and white photography at both entrance and exit. Checks vehicle licence plate on exit, with several configurable security options.

  • User-friendly and flexible gatehouse program, allowing for different preset security levels for access, being able to create new levels and assign or restrict different functions for each one.

  • Real-time information from the main screen of available and occupied spaces, and total numbers of owners, permit-holders and short-stay users in the different zones of the car park.

  • Automatic ticket reading by the scanner, giving arrival time, exit time, length of stay, licence plate number and cost of stay. Validation for exit is possible either automatically or by waiting for an order, adding a time margin when exiting and being able to give clients a receipt.
