Duncan Solutions Receives Design Award for Next Generation Meter
Duncan Solutions has been awarded the prestigious Good Design Award in the field of Product Design – Commercial and Industrial for the NG (Next Generation) Meter. The accolade was awarded by Good Design Australia – an authority on Australian design quality.
Aesthetically designed, the Duncan NG Meter represents the culmination of decades worth of experience in meter design and parking management best practice. With many cities and councils seeking to implement environmentally friendly solutions, the NG Meter provides solar sustainability through a highly optimised combination of software and electronics. It is also designed to be both cashless and ticketless, which not only reduces waste from tickets, but represents a major cost saving to operators.
Improved performance in maintenance is also a key development of the NG Meter compared to many other meters available in the market. The meter display and internal components are easily detachable and replaceable – significantly reducing time and effort of maintenance staff.
The NG meter is IP-65 rated in a fully sealed unit to prevent ingress of moisture and dust, offering protection from harsh conditions. Another major advancement of the NG Meter is the 7-inch colour touch display – a feature that provides an unparalleled ease of use for motorists.
The jury for the award praised the NG Meter, stating that: “Touch screens allow for increased security and cleanliness and the innovative approach to parking, solar and IoT functionality are really positive. The data capture aspect of the design and integration with PEMS provide important information to councils on parking load. The form is aesthetically clean and contemporary, and the solar recharging is also a nod to sustainability. Well done.”
