Parking control system for Belfast Harbour

Posted: 1/1/1970

Electro Automation has installed a novel variation of the Zeag ORION parking control system to control the berthing revenue and help secure access to Belfast Harbour’s leisure craft facilities. The pontoon area is secured using automatic gates powered by Electro Automation’s in-ground automation system. Once a visitor berths at the facility they take a berthing ticket and payment is made in advance at the ORION fully automatic paystation.

A special feature allows the appropriate tariff (according to length of vessel and duration of stay) to be stepped through and selected. Payment is made by credit card, and the system logs these details. Only the code on a validated (and current) ticket is accepted at the gates for entry and exit, thereby safeguarding the area. Electro Automation used Oris number sequence keypads as a connected part of the Zeag ORION system. These accept the code which is printed on each validated ticket.

Data transmission is completed wirelessly to the Harbour Master’s office using the innovative 1 Burst data transmission system and the intercoms use GSM technology. All statistics are recorded for later analysis on the Zeag ZMS management station. This also offers remote wireless diagnostics and control of the floating pontoon system.

The current 40 berth facility is a forerunner to a fully equipped 200 berth marina located in the heart of Belfast’s Titanic Quarter.
