Canadian company Kraus Global Ltd., a supplier of alternative fuel dispensing solutions, has introduced its next generation of CNG fueling dispensers. The new dispenser — the Optima™ — features a new Pulse™ proprietary companion display and new MICON NEXTGEN 1.0™ electronic controller, enhancing station control and performance via its data and communication capabilities.
Kraus Global, a member of NGVAmerica, says the Optima is the result of three decades of CNG focused dispenser experience and feedback from the field. Recognizing a need for easily accessible data and configuration tools, Optima provides full access to error codes, software upgrades, and fill parameter set points either locally or remotely from the convenience of your smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
The new Micon NextGen 1.0 builds upon proven Micon 500 technology elevating functionality beyond current standards with data capabilities and configuration tools delivering smarter control, increased efficiency, and higher profitability. Real time data is visible on the Pulse display, allowing users to follow fill progression as it communicates the starting and ending parameters of their filling process, reassuring that a target was established and then safely met.
President and CEO of Kraus Global Ltd., Ossama AbouZeid, said he is pleased with customer support and feedback from the field: “We have been beta testing OptimaTM for approximately 18 months and have received positive feedback from our customers. Their support has been tremendous and we appreciate their loyalty.”
AbouZeid stated Optima is currently being used by a number of CNG fuel providers, including Alternative Vehicle Services Group (AVSG), Independent Fueling Systems, Love’s Trillium, Nopetro, Pacific Gas & Electric, Timco, US GAIN, and others.
