Sentry VI Fuel Management System
The Fuel Sentry is an island-mounted pedestal containing a microcomputer, card reader; pump control interfaces, power supply, communication electronics, heaters and various other elements used to provide a single control point for the fuel island. The Fuel Sentry uses no separate “controller unit” at the fueling location. It contains sufficient memory and computer intelligence to function.
This product uses our FuelTRAK Fuel Management Software, and with transmission of fueling transactions to the Central Controller you will always be well informed of your fluid assets.
Mobile Fueling and Accounting Solutions
Trak’s Automated Mobile Fueling and Accounting System delivers complete automation of the fuel truck fueling process. It is a highly reliable, user friendly and versatile system that provides full control and accountability. It is completely waterproof, lightweight and rugged enough to withstand freezing snow and torrential rain. The system is guaranteed to work under all environmental conditions.
The main component of the Automated Mobile System is the hand-held Mobile ID Collector (MIC) unit. It is two (2) sided with a keypad on one side and a graphical operator’s section on the other. The MIC, along with the wireless charging unit and the RF communications, is completely sealed and impervious to any weather changes.
FuelTRAK Fuel Management Software
FuelTRAK is a browser-based fuel management system software designed to work in conjunction with the Trak SentryGOLD and Sentry VI. It is password protected and accessible through your organization’s Intranet and via the Internet. With multiple levels of password security, you can decide who has access to the system, including over 40 reports.
With FuelTRAK you can poll fuel sites, encode keys, perform data entry on all screen for fuel management; such as vehicle, personnel, department, tanks, sites, products, etc. FuelTRAK is also used for all reporting and exporting files.
WinCC Central Controller Software
Although the Fuel Sentry can carry out the entire fueling procedure on the Fuel Island by itself, it does not constitute an entire system. A Central Controller is the heart of the system. It polls/downloads, stores and organizes the information from the Fuel Sentries.
The Central Controller is normally an existing PC at the customer’s site with Trak’s WinCC Software (developed by Trak Personnel) residing on it. It also provides the interface between the system operator and all of the Fuel Sentries, as well as the communication path to other computers for the file exports.
Fuel Management Hosting Services
Cloud-Based Hosting Using FuelTRAK browser-based software
Trak uses the servers at Microsoft Azure to provide our Cloud-based hosting solution along with disaster recovery. It manages and protects your data. Azure Security Center helps detect any potential threats and remediates issues to avoid negative consequences to your information. Azure’s Site Recovery capabilities enable recovery, development/testing and migration of applications to Azure providing access and privacy. Backup and disaster recovery solutions powered by Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery, built on Microsoft’s cloud platform, protects your datacenter and ours.
The main criterial activity for our customers is that they provide a network “drop” at the fuel island, for the SentryGOLD(s), or close by the fuel island (less than 100 feet).
Your fueling information is posted on a web-based system that can be accessed from the Internet 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. We provide you with a secure password access page that will log you right into your information. You will also have the ability to encode keys and edit/add/delete information such as vehicles, personnel, and departments.
Our daily service includes:
- CHECK POLLING RESULTS – ENSURE ALL SENTRIES AT YOUR FUEL SITE LOCATIONS HAVE POLLED.
- REASONABILITY CHECK – MAKE SURE THE QUANTITY OF FUELS MATCH THE AVERAGE QUANTITIES PER HOSE.
- INVENTORY – IF TANK LEVELS AND DELIVERIES ARE CAPTURED VIA A TANK MONITOR INTERFACE OR INVENTORY TRANSACTIONS ENTERED AT THE SENTRY, A REPORT WILL BE SENT VIA EMAIL LISTING THE TANKS THAT NEED FUEL REORDERED. THIS IS BASED ON THE RE-ORDER POINT YOU PROVIDE US FOR EACH TANK.
- RECONCILIATION – ENSURE THE QUANTITY OF FUEL DISPENSED (FUELING TRANSACTIONS) MATCH THE QUANTITY OF FUEL IN TANKS.
- ALERT TRAK AND DISPERSE A SERVICE TECHNICIAN IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH COMMUNICATION AND HARDWARE AT YOU SITES (additional charges could apply to send a service technician).
From any browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, coupled with your password, you have access without having to do this yourself! You remain in complete control of the system and continue to make decisions regarding who gets fuel and when. You control all of your own reporting and decide when to obtain transaction information to send to your accounting department or fleet maintenance. Trak can schedule the system to create the export during a specific timeframe, and we will ensure the file is ready for your fleet/accounting program to import.
Trak specializes in Fuel Management; that is our only business. Why not let Trak handle all your daily fuel management system needs?
Tank Level Detector System
The Tank Level Communicator (TLC) system is specifically designed for use with Aboveground Storage Tanks (AST). It is one of the most cost-effective units for bulk inventory control that is on the market today. The TLC allows you to track fuel levels and deliveries from the convenience of a desktop workstation.
Benefits include improving inventory control and reducing losses, eliminating the need for manual dipping, validating product deliveries, providing reporting capabilities directly from a desktop computer, and designed for sites with gasoline, diesel or various other bulk fluid storage.
Tank Monitor Interface
Trak provides a seamless interface to numerous tank monitoring systems, using an RS232 cable from the RS232 port on the Tank Monitor (some manufacturers have this as an optional plug-in card). The Tank Monitor and the Fuel Sentry can share the same communication line.
If network communication is available and if the Tank Monitor has a network connection – RJ45 connector, the network address can be configured into the Trak software to poll the tank monitor.
Bulk Fluid Controllers
The Trak Bulk Fluid Control is a low cost, automated control unit, designed to measure and control the flow of bulk oil products. It is designed to work with most bulk products, including, transmission fluid, coolants, oil, DEF windshield washer fluid, and more. Facilities with the Trak Fuel Sentry will find the Bulk Fluid Control an invaluable addition to total island automation. With the Bulk Oil Fluid Control, you can control access and maintain an automated record of who took oil, how much, when and for which bus or vehicle.
