Plug & Play Transport Android Validator
Made to reduce maintenance
The maintenance of transport validators is a heavy burden for transport operators. A technician has to physically go to each validator to carry out routine maintenance and system upgrades. And, if any hardware issues arise, the validator has to be removed and taken back to the warehouse for repair. Well aware of these issues, we have developed a product to reduce your maintenance investments.
The FX920 is based on a custom and secure Android OS with instant connection to the Famoco Mobile Device Management platform. From this portal, you’re able to remotely manage your fleet of validators and adjust any settings (update and add transport apps, enable settings such as Wi-Fi or 3G). These software features decrease the maintenance efforts significantly and help streamline the evolution of your transport validator.
This public transport validator has been designed to facilitate the hardware maintenance for transport operators. Technicians can use the touchscreen on-site to carry out ad-hoc maintenance (access developer mode to fix bug directly on-site). The technician can also detach the front part of the validator and change it quickly if needed.
The FX920 is fully certified for public transportation as it is certified with IEC 60068-2, EN 61 000-6-0, EN 55 022 – Class B, EN 50 121-3-2, EN 60 950-1, EN 45 545-2. Plus, Famoco is part of the Calypso Networks Association as it includes the NFC 14443 A/B/B’ module by Paragon ID (formerly ASK).

What kind of payments does the FX920 support?
The FX920 accepts any printed ticket with barcode as it features an optical scan engine and it also supports contactless travel card using NFC technology.
In addition, the use of mobile phones is in constant progression. This technology has created new ways for travelers to pay for public transport. The FX920 supports several mobile ticketing methods used by the different transport operators.
Some public transport companies provide a mobile app to let travelers be autonomous in their travels. Passengers can purchase e-tickets (based on time or journey) and activate them directly from their smartphones. The e-ticket is displayed as a barcode that is scanned to open a gate or validate the ticket when entering a vehicle. The FX920 ensures a fast and reliable scan of mobile barcodes.
NFC-based smart card
Public transportation operators can provide mobile apps that emulate a transport smart card using the smartphone NFC technology. Travelers have to top-up their balance on the app. When traveling, they check in and out by holding their phones against the NFC validator in the vehicle. The FX920 NFC validator has been design to accept virtual smart card and support NFC plastic cards.
Why is the FX920 different from other transport validators?
