PTS Controller over Fuel Dispensers & ATG Systems for Petrol Stations

PURPOSE


PTS controller over fuel dispensers and ATG (automatic tank gauge) systems for petrol stations serves as a protocols converter, it allows conversion of proprietary communication protocols of dispensers and ATG systems to a single communication protocol of PTS controller. Thus using a single communication protocol of PTS controller a control system (POS system, cash register, payment terminal) is able to provide control over any of the supported dispensers and ATG systems in exactly the same way. A work for a developer of the control system is completely simplified - he does not need to implement a great variety of the communication protocols in the control system (which are difficult to get from manufacturers and difficult to implement), he needs to implement only protocol of PTS controller and PTS fuel pump controller will itself undertake conversion of UniPump protocol to propritary communication protocols of dispensers and ATG systems. Thus time required for development of the control system is sufficiently reduced.

PTS forecourt controller application

PTS fuel pump controller can be called a forecourt controller and is intended to be used in connection with a control system for petrol station (POS system, cash register, OPT terminal, etc) to provide simultaneous remote control over petrol, diesel, CNG and LPG dispensers and automatic tank gauge (ATG) systems installed at petrol, CNG and LPG stations and storage depots.

PTS controller provides control over any of the supported fuel dispensers or ATG systems using the single common communication protocol. PTS controller works as a protocol converter and provides conversion of its common communication protocol into various proprietary communication protocols of fuel dispensers and ATG systems.

PTS fuel pump controller is supplied with a rich set of API (application programming interfaces) developed under the most commonly utilized programming languages and environments in order to make comfortable and quick implementation of PTS controller into control systems for petrol stations (POS system, cash register, OPT terminal, etc).

PTS fuel pump controller can simultaneously control up to 16 fuel dispenser sides (fueling places). PTS controller has 4 independent pump channels, each of them can be programmed to its own communication protocol and baud rate, thus PTS controller provides communication with connected dispensers simultaneously using up to 4 various communication protocols. Each PTS controller pump channel can connect up to 16 fueling places maximum.

PTS controller can simultaneously control up to 16 ATG probes (gauges) (separate probes or probes connected to ATG systems / consoles) that use up to 3 various communication protocols and baud rates (each of the ATG channels can be adjusted to a separate communication protocol and baud rate and connect up to 16 ATG probes maximum).

PTS controller allows a possibility to lead management over the same fuel dispensers from several POS systems and share ATG probes measurement values between several interconnected PTS controllers. Thus every interconnected PTS controller is able to provide control over any of the connected fuel dispensers and know ATG system measurement data of every other interconnected PTS controller.

PTS controller supports more than 70 types of fuel dispensers brands of various manufacturers, between which you can find: Wayne Dresser Europe, Wayne Dresser Brasil, Gilbarco Veeder Root, Tokheim, Nuovo Pignone, Wayne Pignone, Tatsuno Japan, Tatsuno Europe, Tatsuno Rus, Tokico, Bennett, Petrotec, Salzkotten, FAS, Adast, MM Petro ZAP, Emgaz Dragon, Galileo, Kraus, Welma, PEC (Gallagher), Develco, Logitron, Kalvacha, Safe, Wayne Meksan, Mekser, Mepsan, 2A, Petposan, Petrolmeccanica, Batchen, Email, EuroPump, Baransay, Sanki, Korea EnE, LG EnE, SOMO Petro, HongYang, Blue Sky, GreenField, Falcon, Dong Hwa Prime, EPCO, Slavutich, Shelf, UniCon, UniGaz and others.

PTS controller supports various types of automatic tank gauge (ATG) systems of various manufactures (Gilbarco Veeder Root, OPW, Hectronic, Struna, PetroVend, Start Italiana, Fafnir, Assytech, VEGA, Windbell and others).

PTS controller is CE approved and has all corresponding test reports.



CONNECTION OF FORECOURT EQUIPMENT

FEATURES AND BENEFITS


  • Supports over 70 communication protocols of fuel dispensers and ATG systems. List of supported communication protocols is constantly growing. A wide range of international protocols as Wayne DART, Gilbarco 2-wire, Tokheim, Tatsuno are included. Single firmware of PTS controller contains all available communication protocols for fuel dispensers and ATG systems.
  • Unified approach to management over any forecourt equipment - using PTS controller control over any supported fuel dispenser or ATG system is done in exactly the same way by the management system (POS system, cash register, OPT terminal, etc). PTS controller has a single common communication protocol. Thus having once implemented the protocol into the management system (or its API) the management system will be able to provide control over any of the supported fuel dispensers and ATG systems in exactly the same way.
  • Real-time control over fuel dispensers and ATG systems. PTS controller provides a hardware solution for stable and reliable operation of forecourt equipment.
  • Scalability - PTS controller provides control over up to 16 dispenser sides, in case of necessity several PTS controllers can work simutaneously.
  • Possibility to provide control over same fuel dispensers from several POS systems and receive data on ATG measurements from any interconnected PTS to each POS system - PTS controllers, installed near each of the POS systems, can be interconnected with each other allowing each of the POS systems to provide control over each of the connected fuel dispensers or monitor its state and to have data measurements of ATG systems connected to any of the interconnected PTS controllers.
  • Rich set of interface converters for connection to fuel dispensers - PTS controller has output pump channels in RS-485 interface so can be directly connected to fuel dispensers with this type of interface. Other dispensers having communication interface of 2-wire current loop, 3-wire current loop, 4-wire current loop, RS-232 interface are connected to PTS controller through special interface converters.
  • Rich software API for developers - PTS controller is supplied with full API (application programming interfaces) and open-source test applications for common programming languages and operation platforms: C, C++, C#, Delphi, Java, Python, Visual Basic, COM-object.
  • "All in one" configuration tool for PTS controller: one configuration utility provides configuration of its pump and ATG channels, internal parameters, reads version, makes firmware updates, captures logging from any channel and makes self-diagnostics of the PTS controller.
  • Easy firmware updating - All new firmware updates are available for download to all existing customers. Firmware update process takes about 1 minute. Easy way to back up and restore PTS controller configuration between updates.
  • Logging of operation - in order to remove problematic situations of PTS controller communication with any forecourt equipment logging of communication exchange without interrupting PTS controller operation is available, which allows quick search and elimination of any found problems.
  • Self-diagnostics of operation - easy and quick built-in diagnostics of PTS controller operation: CPU, memory, RS-232 and RS-485 interfaces, DIP-switches.
  • Constant software updates - PTS controller firmware is constantly being improved, new protocols are being added and latest updates are always available for download to all customers.
  • Support by developers for developers - 24 hours support for all customers of PTS controller on any standing issues.
