Connect Your Automatic Tank Gauge Remotely!

It is critically important for businesses to be able to connect remotely to their tank gauges and retrieve data about the status of their fueling sites. For companies with only a few sites, who need an immediate connection to data, the remote access features of the TLS4 Series Automatic Tank Gauges(ATGs) are convenient options. These free features allow you to check the status of your sites, viewing data for one tank gauge at a time.

The remote access tools available for the TLS-450PLUS, TLS4 and TLS4B ATGs include features such as:


Direct connection through the Web-Enabled Interface

The Web-Enabled Interface for the TLS4 Series provides browser-based access to the ATG with almost all functionality that is available on the TLS graphical user interface. More information on the features and benefits of Web-Enabled can be found here.

The web interface allows for the secure transport of data from almost any connected device, which makes it easier to access the console data remotely. It is key to ensure the network provides the security your organization needs to protect its consoles while still allowing the access needed.

Multiple networking options are supported, including basic IP setup, Routing Tables, and Port Configuration. The TLS4 Series ATGs support the last three versions of the major browsers including Chrome, Edge, Fire Fox and Internet Explorer.

Connecting to The REMOTE VIEW or The PLUS VIEW mobile applications

The REMOTE VIEW application is available on Android and iOS mobile devices for accessing inventory, delivery and alarm data real-time, as it is continuously connected to the automatic tank gauge. While The PLUS VIEW application is similar to THE REMOTE VIEW, it is intended for more mobile applications. It automatically pulls data every 15 minutes for checking status without pulling a constant stream of data. Both The REMOTE VIEW and The PLUS VIEW support a maximum of five simultaneous users.

While The PLUS VIEW gives you access to a Station Overview, Report Tab, and Map View, The REMOTE VIEW gives you these functions, and: Real-Time Updates, One Touch Alarms, Notifications, all of which are formatted for in-store viewing.

The information needed for remote access

Whether you are connecting to the TLS4 Series ATGs through the Web-Enabled Interface, THE REMOTE VIEW or THE PLUS VIEW apps, there is certain information required for setting up remote access to your site data. There is also additional information that is optional but recommended for an optimal user experience.

How Accurate Is Your Fuel Inventory?

Relying on manual gauge stick or dipstick measurements for wet stock inventory data introduces inaccuracy into your record-keeping and are potentially hazardous to employees.

Faulty Measurement Processes

With daily deliveries and frequent dispensing activity, the fuel level within the tank is constantly changing. Ripples in the tank from deliveries and tank tilt significantly limit the reliability of stick measurements. With so much going on it can be easy to rush measurements, misread the dipstick, or transpose data incorrectly, introducing errors because of the manual process for measurement.

Tank Chart Errors

A stick reading is only useful if it is being compared to an accurate tank chart. With no way to calibrate the measurements and systematically compare them to previous data, there are few options for ensuring accuracy. While tank charts do not cause a loss of fuel, an inaccurate tank chart will affect inventory and delivery data collected and could contribute to masking actual fuel losses. In fact, many discrepancies in fuel recording and variance reporting are the result of poor data capture because tank charts do not accurately represent how fuel is situated in the tank.

Manual Data Handling

Manual dipstick measurements also lead to manual data handling which introduces transposing errors and makes it difficult to compare or compile data across multiple fuel sites. In many cases, owners with multiple sites end up working in large spreadsheets and calling around to all their sites for point in time measurements that are then subject to faulty manual measurements. The process compounds the opportunity for errors and masks more serious fuel variance issues.

Employee Safety Concerns

When employees open the sump to take measurements, they are repeatedly exposed to harmful fuel vapors that can impact their health over time. The quiet, less busy, times on the site that are best for measuring tank volumes are frequently at night or early in the morning when visibility is low. This adds to the likelihood of a mis-read measurement, but also presents a safety concern that employees may not be visible to drivers on the forecourt. Depending on the size and depth of the sump there is also a safety concern with leaning directly over the open sump to take the measurement from an open port, increasing the likelihood that an employee could fall into the sump space.

Why You Need To Automate Your Gasoline Station Now!

The TLS Express Inventory Solution retrofits into existing sites and automates your wet stock inventory management process, eliminating paperwork, emails, and text messages. It gives you real-time visibility to fuel inventory from anywhere.

When thinking about adding an automatic tank gauge or ATG to your fuel site, you should take into account the following considerations.


Are you looking to avoid fuel stock-outs?

Fuel stock-outs stop operations at the site and cost you customers and in-store traffic, causing a loss of revenue that cannot be recovered. Adding an ATG to your fueling site can maximize your productivity by allowing you to better predict your fuel usage and stay ahead of costly fuel stock-outs.

Do you want details about your wet stock inventory variance?

A fuel variance is the difference between the amount of fuel available in a tank at any given time, according to recorded deliveries and sales, and the actual amount of fuel available in the tank. Fuel variances can be positive or negative. Whether through delivery discrepancy, inaccurate manual dipstick measurements, theft, or storage tank leaks, fuel variances could be costing your business and inaccurate inventory tracking could be masking a more serious issue.

Do you want peace of mind about your tank integrity?

Veeder-Root ATG systems include compliance and testing features that monitor for, and detect, leaks within your fueling system. For most fuel sites, the gas in the tank is the most expensive asset on site. Storage tank leaks are not just bad for the environment and community, they are costly for owners.

Are you looking to prevent overfills?

Tank overfills are detrimental to site safety, but the potential for an overfill event can be easily mitigated with an ATG. The TLS4B will display the ullage space (aka unfilled space) inside the tank so you can be sure the delivery will fit.

Would you like to accurately check site inventory levels remotely?

For many busy site owners, it can be hard to check in on the status of their business while they are off-site. Veeder-Root TLS4 Series automatic tank gauges are equipped to help owners access critical data while they are off-site using our free mobile phone and web-enabled applications. Easily access console data from anywhere at any time.

Add one of three of our Veeder-Root TLS Express Bundles to your fuel site and quickly and affordably automate your fuel management process.
