What is a Driver Controlled Delivery (DCD) System?

The Driver Controlled Delivery unit (DCD) provides an external interface to the Tank Monitoring System.  Using the DCD unit, information about the status of the fuel tanks may be obtained at any time. This is especially useful at unmanned sites and outside normal working hours.  The equipment is housed in a robust cabinet and is available with a pedestal or wall-mounting bracket. The perfect solution for any fuel retail forecourt or fleet fuelling site.  TSG can provide ongoing service and maintenance of the unit for added peace of mind.

How does it work?

The DCD unit works by communicating with the Tank Gauge System at the start of delivery allowing the tanker driver to confirm there is enough space in the tank to allow the fuel to be delivered safely. When the delivery is completed the tanker driver can printout a Delivery Report to confirm the correct volume of fuel was delivered to each tank. If an emergency was to arise during delivery the DCD also incorporates an Emergency Stop Switch and Telephone.  The DCD unit also has a Floodlight Circuit to allow visibility to the tanker driver in the hours of darkness.
