BASEstation industrial remote on board computer is mainly designed for the petroleum delivery fleets. This is a unique truck mounted in-cab computer that is designed and built by experienced people who are skilled in fuel delivery automation and control.
BASEstation is mainly a water resistant WinCE device which is equipped with color touch-screen display, compact flash, smart card/magnetic card readers and USB host/device port. The operators use the application software which can be custom designed by making it adaptable to a wide variety of applications.
Here are some important features of on board computer (OBC):
Complete Product Reconciliation:
On-board computer (OBC) is seamless, reliable interface to all types of electronic registers. The engineers of the reputed manufacturers have collaborated with the registered manufacturers in order to deliver a high performance link between their register and the in-cab computer system. The loading rack volumes are mainly captured as well as reconciled against a detailed sales transaction record by using the database of user friendly in-cab computer customer account detail. Generally a detailed delivery ticket is produced for each of the delivery and an electronic version of every transaction that is uploaded wirelessly to the back office.
Improved Product Security:
While operating these OBC industrial remote control systems the operator is required to scan a customer tank mounted RFID tag just before the pump engagement. At that time, the customers address and the account information is automatically displayed as the truck enters the customer’s yard by using GPS and database. During these times, the drivers need to confirm the customer location and prepare to make the delivery control. This helped to scan the RFID tags that are attracted to the customer’s tank and the tag data is sent wirelessly back to the truck up to 1000ft away.
When the customer account information contained on the RFID tag corresponds with the trucks current GPS coordinates and the database customer information an authorization message which is transmitted back to the handheld display allowing the operator to initiate the delivery.
Whenever you put an attempt to unload the product without a match between database and the RFID tag data is red flagged – at that time an exception report is mainly generated in the delivery record showing the driver’s name, time of the day, volume unloaded, and the location.
Back Office Integration and Deployment:
According to the technical experts every fleet operation is different. The fleet operation includes different trucks, different delivery procedures, and different back office accounting and management tools.
When an operator is using BASEstation system, he/she is assigned a dedicated deployment expert in order to ensure the exchange of data between truck and back office is robust as well as usable. The expert engineers have enough experiences in translating truck operational data in order to accounting and fleet management systems.
The manufacturers of these unique BASEstation systems maintain especial protocols according to the industry standards and they interface with most back office software providers. The specialist manufacturers also guarantee customer satisfaction and remain at the customer’s disposal for questions, upgrades, and troubleshooting for the life of the system.
BASE Engineering designs excellent industrial remote controls systemsfor different engineering and commercial purposes including butane and propane industry and industrial petroleumsector. Since 1996 over 50,000 BASEsystems have been employed around the globe to increase job safety and productivity. Industrial remote controls, in our hand, have moved into the next level.
