OPW’s DPC Interface Can Lower Pump Control Equipment Costs By Over 50 Percent
OPW, a Dover Company (NYSE
) and the global leader in fluid-handling solutions, is proud to announce the addition of a Direct Pump Control (DPC
) interface for several Gasboy®
dispensers that enables commercial fuel sites to lower the equipment costs associated with traditional pump control technologies.
Now available for four Gasboy
dispenser models, OPW’s DPC
uses a serial communication line to directly communicate with OPW’s FSC3000™ Fuel Site Controller
. Through “daisy chaining,” the serial communication line pares the necessary wiring to just two wires. A traditional pump control solution, such as a Pump Control Module (PCM
), requires six wires per fueling position. In addition, a commercial fuel site utilizing PCM
requires a PCM
for every two hoses being controlled; DPC
utilizes just one interface to control up to 16 single- or dual-sided dispensers.
“The pump control equipment costs for four PCM-configured double-sided dispensers can be around $4,000, but the equipment costs for four DPC-configured double-sided dispensers is around $1,800,” said Jeremy Lewis, Commercial Business Development Manager – Fuel Control. “While there are several factors that influence installation costs, it’s not unreasonable to expect that DPC could yield an additional cost savings between $500 and $2,000 over and above the equipment costs.”
OPW’s DPC is available for the following Gasboy® dispensers: Gasboy® Atlas® 9800K Commercial Series Dispenser, ASTRA Series 9820Q Electronic Commercial Pump, Atlas Diesel Exhaust Fluid Dispenser for Fleet Fueling and Atlas E85 and Alternative Fuels Fleet Fuel Dispensers.
