Purchased by Mining Surveys (UK) the VZ-1000 allows for high speed, non-contact surveying at distances of up to 1,400 metres making it ideal for use in inhospitable and difficult to access areas.

Fuel management simplified with on-line networking

  • PDF

An exceptionally easy to use software package, Fuel Management On-Line (FMO), is available from Fueltek.  Aimed at helping commercial and public service fleet vehicle managers to control and reduce fuel costs, FMO integrates all the fuel management hardware elements, gathers fuelling information effectively and is easily customised to produce detailed fuel use information.  Managers can install the software on their own networks or have the option of remote hosting by Fueltek.

Scalability is a key feature of FMO.  The system is equally applicable to small fleet, single depot operations as it is to major operators with hundreds of vehicles and scores of locations.  There is no limit to the number of devices on the network.  These may include fuel management terminals, tank monitoring systems or other devices such as gates, barriers or even key cabinets.
