Civacon's CivaStar Optimizes Probe Reliability

By Civacon | Oct 05, 2015
New technology and construction provide an increase in probe reliability and positive permissive readings at the loading rack, keeping deliveries on schedule

KANSAS CITY, MO – October 5, 2015 – Civacon, part of OPW, announced the release of CivaStar, the next evolution of advanced overfill prevention. CivaStar's unique design, construction and LED visual verification feature are light years ahead of today's conventional probes. Unlike current probes, CivaStar goes beyond safeguarding against costly overfills. By including an LED-lit tip at the end of each probe, technicians can quickly verify the active status of each probe and the surrounding wires.

"If you deliver fuel, your number one objective is to quickly and safely transport as much as possible to as many customers," said Chris Gooding, Director of Sales and Operations for Civacon. "CivaStar helps you accomplish this by increasing CivaStar Product Imageprobe 
reliability and providing real-time status updates."

In addition to its excellent reliability, CivaStar's optic sensor head is easy to install and incredibly accurate. With no need to reset probe heights and pinpoint diagnostics of non-permissive probe readings, technicians spend less time in the garage and drivers spend more time on the road, keeping deliveries on schedule and customers happy. 

CivaStar is available for a 2-wire and 5-wire overfill sensor platform and is specifically designed for today's popular straight optic loading racks. Backed by a 5-year warranty, CivaStar is part of Civacon's long-term plans to revolutionize overfill prevention and looks to expand CivaStar to its entire line of overfill systems.
