Real-Time Status and Remote Control
The Internet of Things Fuel Control Terminal (FCT) provides real-time fueling transaction details, pump status, and alert details through its easy to read display screen. Because it’s always connected, the IoT FCT allows fleet managers to use Fuel View software to remote authorize fueling for any vehicle or driver, and even control the fuel type and quantity. With Fuel View software, comprehensive, up-to-date site data allows managers to effectively operate their sites with the tools already in place to make rapid, knowledgeable decisions.
Every drop of fuel is accounted for using a Ward CANceiver™, Fuel Tag and Hose Module or other Ward access methods. As demand for detailed information increases and fleet size grows, future flexibility and scalability is ensured with the secure REST API framework and increased memory and storage capacity.
Automate Fleet Fueling
Ward FCTs are available as a stand-alone solution to automate fueling and interface with dispensing systems for any pumped fuel or fluid. The FCT captures real-time information at the pump and sets a new standard in fleet fueling management solutions.
The FCT interfaces with gasoline, diesel, CNG, propane, and any other fuel and vehicle fluid dispensing device, as well as electric vehicle charging stations. Each FCT can control up to 10 hoses in any combination of product. FCTs also provide exceptional versatility and convenience in transit bays for vehicle fluids and lubricants. Proven industrial grade components and a durable powder-coat finish withstand the harshest environments, providing dependable performance for decades.
The versatile FCT comes in several configurations for use in any environment.
- Internet of Things FCT
- Fuel island
- Fueling truck mounted
- Dispenser mounted
- Wall mounted
- Transit bays
Multiple fuel access and authorization methods are available. Options run from a fully automated system using a Ward CANceiver, HID badge, key fob, magnetic stripe card, data key, keypad entry, or combinations of each, based on your unique business needs.
Convenient single point access of service fluids in use with hose reels in automotive and industrial fleet applications, the FCT can be used in transit bays with pump chaining for mixed fuels, as well as maintenance kiosks for multiple service fluids such as transmission fluids, windshield washer, and oils. Ideal for service trucks, transit bays, and large fleet shops.
