What Kinds Of Equipment Do I Need To Counter Fuel Theft?
My most popular and favorite system is the Syn-Tech’s FuelMaster® 3505 Plus, which monitors the distribution of fuel tracks usage per vehicle or driver. Fuelmaster has a keypad option, a PROKEE ® option (aka a card option), and the one and only AIM2, the next generation of automated fuels accounting technology. This technology offers an “on-board” vehicle computer interface and reduces installation time for a customer’s mechanics.
Syn-Tech removed the driver from the fueling equation with its first AIM unit, which required the driver to enter zero data. AIM2 keeps with this idea, while also taking the mechanic out of the maintenance process.Transaction data is easily exportable to most fleet maintenance programs. Thus, AIM2 decreases human error by removing the driver from the fueling process and reduces costs by cutting the mechanic’s time and labor.
Issued to consumers by system operators, PROKEE ®s are durable, plastic keys that house read/write memory chips programed with confidential information that controls access to dispensers and streamline product transaction data storage. The system operator can enter up to 300 credit card numbers of repeat consumers with a specified discount for each. Streamlining the process, the system makes tracking fuel purchases easier by returning purchase data to PC software.
FuelMaster® has increased memory and processor speed in addition to the database being upgraded to Access 2000. This increased memory capacity enables updating of the fuel island operating system without changing chips.
The newest FuelMaster® systems also has these features:
- Supports a network card to permit Internet access
- More flexibility in the customization of reports
- Communicates directly with electronic dispensers to permit interfaces with blended MPDs
- Has capability of remotely changing dispenser prices
- Is upgradable, so as new processes are developed, your unit can always be upgraded
