POM Parking Meters
Since the invention of the parking meter in 1935, POM is the name you can trust for high quality, American made parking meters. Today, thousands of cities worldwide are metered by POM.

Parktel Credit Card Module
POM has developed a module to fit between the upper and lower housing of POM and all major single-space meter housings. The Parktel module includes a credit card reader; wireless modem; solar panels with rechargeable and backup power supply; and simple button interface to add time to the meter or cancel the transaction. Data streams in real time to a cloud-based version of MeterManager. Contact us for more information and a list of our installations.
Meter collectors may now purchase kits to help recondition their vintage parking meters. Visit our new online Collector Store, find the photo image that matches your meter, and enter the secure shopping cart site to order.
