Fuel dispensers sales data for ATG consoles for tanks reconciliation and autocalibration
Possibilities of the PTS controller over fuel dispensers and ATG consoles allow to apply it in various ways for provision of control over forecourt equipment at petrol stations and allow its easy integration with existing POS systems and OPT terminals at petrol stations.
One of the applications is listening of communication exchange between POS system and dispensers and sending of dispensers’ transactions to the ATG console for provision of tanks’ reconciliation and automatic calibration. Most of the petrol stations with installed ATG consoles do not have this option due to POS system can not provide sending of dispensers’ transactions to the console. Installation of the PTS controller between POS system and dispensers solves this problem and without any additional integration from the side of POS system.
Additionally, it is possible to apply PTS controller inside the casing of the ATG console. At this a scheme of connection specified on the above image is saved, but at some extra development of the console GUI it is possible to make a completely new function of the console – provision of monitoring and control over dispensers from the console in parallel with POS system. As a result, the console becomes a common system of control, monitoring and account providing:
- connection of console to any POS system, OPT terminal for provision of control over dispensers
- possibility to connect various brands of probes, which communication protocols are not supported by the console
- transmission from PTS controller to console data on sales transaction of dispensers for formation of reconciliation reports and automatic tanks calibration
- additional possibility to monitor and control fuel dispenser operation from the console display in parallel to POS system already installed at petrol station (needs update of console software)
