OPW Adds RFID Authorization Option on Petro Vend 100®

By OPW | Oct 04, 2013
HODGKINS, IL – OPW, A Dover Company (NYSE: DOV) and the global leader in fluid handling solutions, is proud to introduce a contactless keyfob authorization option for the Petro Vend 100® Fuel Control System (PV100). With contactless RFID technology becoming an increasingly common method for driver identification, this new addition to the PV100’s available feature set is designed to provide users with a cost effective, durable and secure way to add proximity HID keyfob functionality to fuel sites.

The RFID keyfob authorization functionality can be added to any PV100 system through a small, in-unit add-on or it can be chosen as an option on any new PV100 ordered. The component, which is housed completely in the PV100’s pre-existing casing, involves a quick and simple installation process. With no moving parts or weather-sensitive equipment exposed to the elements, the offering is designed for maximum durability and reliability regardless of site conditions.

The equipment allows the PV100 to read an OPW-supplied HID keyfob that operates securely on the 125kHz frequency, an RFID frequency which has been used to successfully initiate millions of error-free transactions to date. Site owners can streamline their fueling processes without the risk of data being compromised, or dealing with card or key incompatibilities.
