Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR TRANSACTING FUEL PURCHASES USING AN ISLAND TRANSACTION TERMINAL
(FR) SYSTEME DE TRANSACTION POUR LES ACHATS DE CARBURANT UTILISANT UN TERMINAL DE TRANSACTION EN ILOT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system for transacting fuel purchases. A plurality of fuel dispensing pumps are interconnected to an island transaction terminal through a central master terminal. Each fuel dispensing pump comprises an independant fuel dispensing nozzle. Storage is provided for storing fuel dispensing pump reservations. A processor determines whether one of the plurality of fuel dispensing pumps is already reserved. A money acceptor and a money equivalent acceptor receive payment of money and a money equivalent, respectively. The central master terminal verifies the payment. An enabler enables the requested fuel dispensing pump to dispense fuel using a remote signal to the requested fuel dispensing pump upon verification of the payment of the central master terminal.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de transaction pour l'achat de carburant. Plusieurs pompes distributrices sont connectés à un terminal de transaction en ilôt, par l'intermédiaire d'un terminal central de commande. Chaque pompe de carburant comprend une tubulu re d'alimentation indépendante. Le système permet de réserver des pompes distributrices. Un processeur détermine si l'une des pompes distributrices de carburant est déjà réservée. Un système acceptant de l'argent ou un équivalent d'argent reçoit des paiements en argent ou en équivalent d'argent, respectivement. Le terminal central de commande vérifie le paiement. Un dispositif de validation permet à la pompe distributrice, après vérification du paiment par le terminal central de commande, de distribuer du carburant au moyen d'un signal éloigné à la pompe requise.
