New IP Converters Enable Faster, More Reliable Fueling Transactions

OPW_IP_gatewayHODGKINS, IL, October 27, 2014 - OPW, a Dover Company (NYSE: DOV) and the global leader in fluid-handling solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of additional Ethernet IP Gateway Kits and 3G Wireless IP Gateways. When used in conjunction with OPW’s Petro Vend K800™ Hybrid, C/OPT™, or FIT500™ Fuel Control Systems, the Ethernet IP Gateway Kits and new 3G Wireless IP Gateways provide secure, high-speed authorization processing (100 Mbps), resulting in improved operational efficiencies and enhanced customer experiences.

“OPW’s IP Gateways eliminate the time required to establish a dial-up connection which enables faster and more reliable transactions,” said OPW Fuel Control Product Manager Orlando Hernandez.  

OPW's Ethernet IP Gateway Kits offer two serial connections: an outbound card authorization connection and a connection that facilitates inbound communications from the Phoenix® Fuel Management Software for integrated authorization and data polling. The IP Gateway Kits also have a built-in dial-out modem.

For fuel sites that do not have an Ethernet connection available, the new 3G Wireless IP Gateway can facilitate outbound network authorizations. With these wireless IP Gateways, a cellular service provider sends the card authorization information to the network for processing. Antennas – used to boost wireless signals or for mobile applications – and additional ports are available.

Wireless and Ethernet IP Gateways are certified to communicate with the following card authorization networks: CFN, TCH®, T-Chek™, NBS, Chase Paymentech™ and First Data’s BuyPass™.
