OIS Omega

The OIL INDUSTRY SERVICES OMEGA is a simple yet sophisticated fuel management system, designed to provide complete control for commercial transport organisations dispensing fuel. The OIS OMEGA comprises hardware and software, the hardware is a highly specified Fuel Access Control Terminal ( FACT) designed to be installed at the fuelling location to control existing or remote fuel pumps. OIS FM is our reporting and control software and is a Microsoft windows based package which can run on any windows 32 bit platform. The OIS OMEGA uses Datatag as the access method for authorisation to use the fuelling facility.

OIS OMEGA – Specification
The OIS OMEGA is specified as a pedestal mounted or wall mounted fuel
management system which can be installed near your existing fuel pump. The OIS OMEGA is a single pump controller (1 pump operation). The OIS OMEGA system incorporates a Graphics display which displays clear concise messages in real English, a robust heavy duty telephone style keypad which enables odometer readings, driver ID’s, fleet numbers etc. to be entered at the point of fuelling and our reliable datatag reader. The keypad has alpha numeric capability, used the same way you would use text messaging on a mobile phone. The OIS OMEGA incorporates vehicle / driver messaging. A message can be programmed at the OIS FM software and sent to the FACT. The next time the relevant datatag is used at the FACT a message will be displayed. The System has a memory capacity of 2,000 transactions between downloads to the PC, these are stored in non-volatile memory that does not require a battery back-up, which, means even in the event of a mains power fail the system will retain all data.

Access Method
The OIS OMEGA uses a Datatag as the access method. The Datatag we manufacture is a read/write tag, incorporating high security authentication using a cryptographic algorithm and a guaranteed 100,000 read/write cycles minimum. Data retention is 10 years minimum. The advantages of the Datatag are that there are no moving parts maintenance is therefore low, saving costs in the long term on the upkeep of the system. Datatags supplied are guaranteed for the life of the system. The datatag is a read/write device and can be programmed with many operating parameters. The datatag can be programmed either remotely at the FACT or at the PC.

For reporting purposes data is downloaded from the FACT via a communication link to an existing central PC running windows based OIS FM software that allows reports to be viewed and / or printed from an existing PC / Printer set-up. The software can be installed and viewed on a single or multiple PC’s . The FACT captures all fuelling transactions that take place, the OIS FM PC software will download and process the fuelling transactions and put them into a readable report format.

The main tasks of OIS FM PC software are :-
Communications to the fuelling terminal
Programming Datatags
Maintaining tables ( Driver\Fueller\Lockout )
Running Reports
Stock Control
Backing up data periodically

Although OIS FM incorporates some standard report formats for ease of use, the software incorporates a reports generator which gives you the ability to create and customise your own reports if required.
