PTS controller over fuel dispensers and ATG (automatic tank gauge) systems for petrol stations serves as a protocols converter. It knows communication protocols of a great variety of fuel dispensers and ATG probes and allows control over any of them in exactly the same way using its own input communication protocol. POS system (cash register, payment terminal) should not matter what is the brand of fuel dispenser or ATG system connected – it simply communicates to the PTS controller the same way regardless the brand of fuel dispensers and ATG systems used, PTS controller undertakes all work on communication with fuel dispensers and ATG systems using their native communication protocol and takes into account all their peculiarities.
This completely simplifies work for a POS system developer: by having implemented input common communication protocol of PTS controller the POS becomes able to provide control over any of fuel dispensers and ATG systems supported by PTS controller. PTS controller itself converts input communication protocol into proprietary communication protocols of fuel dispensers and ATG systems. Thus the time required for development of POS system for petrol stations is significantly reduced. PTS controller is supplied with a rich set of APIs (application programming interfaces) developed under most popular programming languages and environments in order to provide comfortable and quick implementation of the PTS controller into control systems for petrol stations (POS system, cash register, OPT terminal, etc).More details: Controller Over Fuel Dispensers And ATG Systems
