About Taxi Meters:
We offer two brands of taximeters, including five basic models you may consider for your cab. There are three basic types of meter:
Type 1) Basic meter, as required by law if you are marketing your car service by the mile. We carry two basic Meters.
|This is the Pulsar Technology Systems Model "2030". This basic meter can handle four different meter rates, and meets or exceeds all federal requirements. It is a good choice not only for excellent quality, but it comes with a pulse divider unit required by many late model American and foreign cars and vans. Also included is the mounting bracket, connectors and cables, plus the relay for control of your toplight. It is made in U.S.A. We program your rates without charge.|
|This is the Centrodyne Corporation model "Silent 610". This meter has shared the distinction of "standard of the industry" with the Pulsar 2030 above for many years. It was manufactured in Canada but was in use extensively in the USA. Centrodyne has now discontinued this meter making it un-available. It has been replaced by the S700 meter below. The new meter is slightly more expensive but has numerous new features.|
Type 2) The same two meters are available with Printers built-in. This is for printing receipts for your fares.
|This is the Pulsar Model 2030R ("R" for receipt). This meter has all the same attributes and capabilities as the P2030 above, plus an integrated printer for receipts for your clients. The printer can also be used to print statistics kept by the meter. It remembers and counts money, miles, number of trips, and prints time, date and trip information. It will make two copies of receipts if needed, so you can keep one and the client the other. We pre-program up to four rates, and the Cab Company name and number which appear on the receipts. The pulse divider and the relay for toplight control are included. This meter CAN be integrated with other devices such as credit card swipes and mobile data terminals (MDT's - TaxiCab Computers). That costs a little more for the interconnect cables and special firmware. Call for details 760-345-4347. U.S.A.|
|Here is the Centrodyne Model 620, which has an integrated printer. It also prints one or two receipts as needed, and includes the same information as the description above. We pre-program your rates and company information, but you can change it on any of these meters if rates change, etc. in the future. Four rates can be programmed. Again, if your vehicle installation requires a toplight control relay or a pulse divider, they are extra and not included. A relay runs about eleven dollars and the pulse divider about $48.00, and are available on this website. Similarly, this meter CAN be integrated with other devices such as credit card swipes and mobile data terminals (MDT's - TaxiCab Computers). That costs a little more for the interconnect cables and special firmware. Call for details 760-345-4347. These two printing meters sell for the same price. Made in Canada.|
Type 3) A new market entry; basic meter style, but with many new features:
|This new market entry from Centrodyne Corp. (from Montreal Canada) has a collection of new features. Consider this: You have a meter and want to add a printer or MDT or Credit Card Reader: Instead of wiring changes needed to the meter and connector, plus a new processor chip and other parts, all you need to buy is a connector cable and a printer. Everything else is already in the meter... computer data, clock systems, etc.. The meter can handle up to 16 different selectable rates (not just 4) and all connections are already in the base, up on your dashboard. The meter has exceptionally easy programming yet it has numerous attributes. Call for details. It is slightly more expensive than the other "basic" meters. It will soon be the standard, we think.|
A printer can be added to the S700 meter in a simple, easy manner; call 760-345-4347.
