PV100’s Enhanced Feature Set Enables Small Sites to Scale Up When Their Needs Expand

HODGKINS, IL – October 12, 2016 – OPW, a Dover Company (NYSE: DOV) and a global leader in fluid handling solutions, has enhanced its popular stand-alone Petro Vend 100® Fuel Control System (PV100) to support up to 1,000 cards, ChipKey® activation and dual card operation. These new features are part of the PV100’s new upgradeable feature set that delivers increased capacity to new sites and helps small commercial fuel sites expand as operations grow.

The PV100 now provides fuel site operators the ability to scale up from 50 to 250 or 1,000 users and from two to four fueling positions. The PV100’s new dual card operation enables the fuel control system to track fueling by drivers using multiple vehicles, while ChipKey activation delivers a convenient and secure alternative to cards. In addition, the PV100 is available in three new powder-coated aluminum pedestal sizes, including sizes that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

“The Petro Vend 100 offers the accountability that our customers have come to rely on from OPW’s suite of cardlock products, while also delivering a ‘future ready’ feature set that enables sites to meet expanding needs,” said Bobby Hayes, Domestic Sales Manager for OPW Fuel Management Systems.

As a stand-alone, field-upgradeable system, the PV100 is designed to minimize additional equipment and service costs. Engineered to be a turnkey system, the PV100 ships ready to use, requiring only power and a few simple connections to each dispenser to begin fueling operations.

“Start-up operations and small fuel sites are frequently challenged by tight budgets,” Hayes said. “The Petro Vend 100 offers new fuel sites a cost-effective fuel control solution that can be quickly deployed, and allows existing fuel sites to expand their capacity without having to make excessive investments in new infrastructure.”

OPW’s Petro Vend 100 Fuel Control System with new ChipKey, expanded card memory and dual card operation is now available through OPW distributors. To learn more about the Petro Vend 100, call (708) 485-4200. For information about OPW, please visit www.opwglobal.com.
