Mobile validator, for buses, trams or trains.

The TC05-M01 mobile validator is designed to validate Swiss multiple-journey cards in UTP format, for 6 or 12 trips.

The TC05-M01 mobile validator can be controlled via the vehicle's IBIS communication bus, or operate autonomously. As required, it can be powered with a 24V service voltage or with an 18-36V battery voltage.


The slot of the TC05-M01 mobile validator is designed to facilitate insertion of multiple-journey cards.

A green or red indicator light tells the users the operating status of the machine.

Sensors detect card insertion, and check card orientation before validating.

Vandalism resistance

The casing of the TC05-M01 mobile validator is made from brushed stainless steel and thermo-lacquered aluminium, thereby providing very good resistance to minor vandalism.

"Raid" function

The TC05-M01 mobile validator can be remotely deactivated with the "raid" function, particularly during a ticket check.

A red light indicates that the validator is out of service, and a shutter closes the card insertion slot.

UTP format multiple-journey card

The TC05-M01 mobile validator is designed to validate Swiss multiple-journey cards (CMC) in UTP format, for 6 or 12 trips, with thickness ranging from 120 to 350 g/m2.

On request, TC05 validators can be configured to accept other multiple-journey ticket or card formats.

Quick-mounting device

The TC05-M01 mobile validator uses a quick-mounting device for installation on vehicle bars. A validator can be removed or installed by means of a lock and security key.

The mounting device is compatible with the old SADAMEL validators.

Configurable IBIS interface

The TC05-M01 mobile validator enables the operator, at any time, to select which IBIS messages need to be used. TC05-M01 validators can be freely configured in IBIS mode or autonomous mode.

Operating and maintenance help

A PC-based service software with wireless link (IrDA) can be used to monitor TC05 validators without having to open them up or remove them from their supports.

Service personnel can easily: look up the cycle counters, request a diagnostic, control test functions, program and configure the validators…
