BASEstation Fuel Delivery Computer System for Industrial Automation

     The advent of machinery age has made many things easier and simple. Today it is possible to do loads of heavy works with a push of button. This has led to an increase in demand of automation and industrial remote control systems that helps in remote monitoring and control of machinery. During these days a wide range of options are available with the concepts of industrial remote controlling as there are different types of machines that have different working mechanism.

BASEstation on-board computer is an innovative Fuel delivery computer designed specifically for petroleum delivery fleets. These truck mounted computers and back office connection were designed and built by people with 33 years experience in fuel delivery automation and control. Nowadays, trucks are considered as high level of transporting system that delivers product one place to another. You can use truck for fuel delivery automation too. BASEstation is built to fulfill this purpose for fuel trucks and designed to seamlessly interface with all other truck systems.

Professional engineers have manufactured bulletproof connections for all wireless systems such as electronic register, industrial remote control system, driver authorization system, and tank gauge and engine/chassis telemetric. This system is also capable with GPS, satellite, cellular and Wi-Fi capability plus mapping and routing.

Professional engineers have visualizes a system where the brains live in a wonderful warm cab and the handheld is a simpler device that sends and receives important data from the cab when itís required. It allows the handheld to be purposely built for fuel delivery computer system with proper functionality required only at the end of the hose.

Basically the result is a handheld that will scan customer RFID tags and transmit this customer data 1000ft back to the truck computer. This also shows the meter reading in real time that is deal for will calls and spill prevention. In addition, the handheld system will control all tank and chassis operations like Hose Reel, Internal Valves, Engine RPM and a DOT approved remote emergency shutdown.

The end of hose, resting on a cold wet tank, being used by a driver with only oily gloves is no place for an expensive handheld computer. Leaving it in the cab attached to a charging cradle also defeats the purpose. The display screen is small and the keypad is really difficult to use. Usually it made sense to use a real Windows based cab mounted computer with a large screen and glove friendly keypad.

The devices are manufactured by licensed contractors and they have to follow security norms to make the equipment safe, secure and functional. Now the industrial remote control systems and automation are subjected to various guidelines as they help in controlling heavy machinery where the possibility of accidents is relatively high.

On besides the security system the devices have to function precisely to avoid manufacturing loss. BASEstation is designed to be splash resistant and itís not designed to be immersed in water. This is an absolute system which includes an installed modem and all peripheral devices. The actual current draw will depend on system design.
