Assure Rugged Design and Security

Vix has flexibility in mind with the Assure Rugged’s design. With the Rugged, transit operators can implement fare collection systems that are unique to their needs. As your needs grow, Assure validators can adapt to those changes. The Assure Rugged is built to last and is designed to withstand public transport rigors while unattended. Assure validators operate fast, allowing a high passenger throughput.

The Assure Rugged Validator is the validator with a 5” LCD, touch screen, and some additional optional features. A Rugged Validator consists of:

  •  A Secure Card Reader
  •  A software-controlled LED ring consisting of RGB LED’s
  •  Rugged mainboard
  •  Optional QR/Bar code reader
  •  Optional peripheral board for 4G/WLAN/GPS
  •  Hood

Security is important, and Assure Rugged validators meet the most stringent digital payment and physical security standards. With the Assure Rugged, security burdens and risks for transport operators are reduced thanks to the Assure Rugged’s IK10 rated enclosure. The Assure Rugged is designed to be unattended, easy to upgrade and reliable, making Assure validators a cost-effective investment for public transit operators now and in the future.
