Technology to manage fuel

German RFID fuel management manufacturer Hectronic has developed a system to provide accurate fuel management data. The key components do away with a manual ‘key driven’ fuel terminal using RF interaction to authorise, dispense and conclude all refuelling activities. The hardware fits the refuelling activity of a logistics RDC as drivers merely have to place their RF refuelling nozzle into the RF enabled fuel tank neck.

The Hectronic system uses a true RF connection between vehicle transmitter, fuel nozzle, and RF enabled fuel terminal.

Kevin Taylor, managing director of UK supplier Liquid Management Solutions, says: “The RF tags come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit every type of vehicle. A key benefit to clients is the flexibility that we have to offer as operators can combine passive and active RF tag technology.”
