Multipurpose Integrated Fuel Dispenser

Multipurpose Integrated Fuel Dispenser

To keep up with technological advancement and societal and environmental needs, gas stations in North America have been upgrading their equipment. More and more common are multipurpose fuel dispensing kiosks that allow one to fill up with fuel at the stand, pay for the gasoline purchase with several payment options, get a receipt, seek information, and even print out coupons for future use.

Advantech's ARK-3381 fanless, embedded computer plays a key role incertain kiosks that offer integrated services. These include environmental protection features, and are also connected with the point-of-sale system within the convenience store, as well as the car wash section. The friendly user interface gives customers instant access to the gas station’s promotion/loyalty program as well as point-of-information including advertisements, maps, and instructions.

Environmental protection features include vapor recovery, and a leak prevention system.
