General Information Systems

GENERAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS Ltd is a world leader in the design and supply of contactless smartcard based handheld readers. The Cambridge based design company has supplied in excess of 10,000 H440 handheld readers (MOVie) of which in excess of 4,000 units operate with ITSO functionality.

The design of the reader allows it to be used with and without ISAM and provides a lightweight, robust and flexible solution to all areas where ITSO products needs to be checked. Units can be easily reprogrammed from non-ISAM to ISAM functionality (and back) to provide an inexpensive migration path.

The ITSO V2.1.4 accredited reader has been used by many rail and bus companies as well as local transport authorities to not only to check-in and check-out ITSO tickets but also to verify that products are correctly encoded.

Used in conjunction with the HDC7-IP cradles this then provides a seamless connection to the HOPS for up to 7 or 14 devices simultaneously.

Designed specifically to be operated single-handed and with low power consumption, the battery will operate the reader in excess of 15hrs on a single charge, making it a class-leading device.
