Kraus Global Ltd., an alternative fuel dispensing solutions provider, has introduced Optima, the next generation of compressed natural gas fueling dispensers.
Featuring Pulse, a proprietary new companion display, and a powerful new Micon NextGen 1.0, Optima enables enhanced station control and performance via its data and communication capabilities.
According to Kraus Global, Optima is the result of three decades of CNG-focused dispenser experience and feedback from the field. Recognizing a need for easily accessible data and configuration tools, Optima provides full access to error codes, software upgrades and fill parameter set points either locally or remotely from the convenience of a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Finding the best 7 inch tablet for your needs can be difficult.
As reported, the new Micon NextGen 1.0 builds upon proven Micon 500 technology, elevating functionality beyond current standards with data capabilities and configuration tools to deliver smarter control, increased efficiency and higher profitability. Real-time data is visible on the Pulse display, allowing users to follow fill progression as it communicates the starting and ending parameters of their filling process.
The president and CEO of Kraus Global Ltd., Ossama AbouZeid, says, “We have been beta testing Optima for approximately 18 months and have received positive feedback from our customers. Their support has been tremendous, and we appreciate their loyalty.”
AbouZeid adds that Optima is currently being used by a number of CNG fuel providers, including Alternative Vehicle Services Group, Clean Energy, Independent Fueling Systems, Love’s Trillium, Nopetro, Pacific Gas & Electric, Timco, US GAIN and others.
