BusLogic Cach Terminal - BLCT 2010 consists of two devices BusLogic Terminals (BLT) and BusLogic Printer (BLP). BLCT is used for selling daily paper tickets, validating monthly contactless cards, reducing credit of pre-paid cards and for the reduction of the number of rides on the trip card.
The BLCT is equipped with a double roll of paper in order to comply to certain legal forms as well as to simplify supervision within the company itself. This also useful since it anticipates tomorrow`s needs in case of fiscalization of bus companies. The BLCT has an integrated GPRS so it can communicate with the central D-LOGIC server which is capable of downloading all of the company's pricing, tax rates, black lists, tariff reduciton, station codebooks with geographical positions, passangers list for scheduled departures, messages for drivers or any other relevant data.
The terminal and printer communicate wirelessly and for the future the BLCT is to have wireless charging of the terminal through the printer via electromagnetic induction. The BLCT is able to sell the daily one-way tickets, return tickets, daily cards with various discounts, replacement cards etc. The BLCT is very helpful in the booking system - a system for booking tickets. It can be an independent sales place, that can download all the information regarding the number of vacant and reserved seats automatically via GPRS from central server and can also do all of the above while on the go. These operations are highly practical for ticket sale in the bus which also feeds the system real-time data concerning the number of passengers on the bus as well as vacant seats for further ticket sales.
What makes this device different from the others on the market is possibillty of complete synchronization of data between devices and the central server via GPRS without the need for other forms of communications like WLAN, Bluetooth and so on. This is achieved via high compression ratio of the data exchanged between the server and terminal. The device has a BarCode upgrading capability, the implementation of which is expected in the near future
