Fueling Automation

Seamlessly integrate RFID into FMS

The HID Global identiFUEL™ system consists of RFID-enabled components to seamlessly integrate into Fuel Management Systems (FMS) to simplify management for commercial fleet and retail fueling stations. Incorporating RFID increases visibility into operational functions for numerous use cases. Popular examples include monitoring and controlling costs, accurate billing, and to uniquely identify as well as authorize vehicles and drivers to dispense fuel from dedicated fueling stations.

Fueling Management Systems are used for commercial fleets fueling at dedicated industrial stations. Airport maintenance, mining and construction vehicles, transportation are just a few commercial examples. Additionally, FMS can be used in retail for customer engagement programs. Customer vehicles equipped with RFID vehicle tags and RFID-enabled gas stations can implement cashless payments, efficient fueling processes and customer loyalty programs.

Multiple RFID Vehicle Tag form factors available – four maintenance-free tags that automate and simplify vehicle identification. Vehicle Tags are programmable with specific fuel type requirements and suitable for multiple vehicle styles.

Ultra-rugged Vehicle Unit (optional) – can be connected to the vehicle electronics to seamlessly report valuable data on vehicle utilization, distance driven, engine cycles, and other operational statistics. The optional built–in RFID reader can read driver badge or keyfob for added security and statistics.

Robust Nozzle Unit reader – is easily installed on the fueling dispenser to read and transmit vehicle tag data to the FMS for authorization.

Wireless Controller – is a programmable base station to relay data picked up by Nozzle or Vehicle Units to the FMS and activate/deactivate fuel dispersion based on FMS authorization.

Robust LF RFID tags uniquely identify authorized vehicles in identiFUEL ™ System.


identiFUEL™ Vehicle Tags
The identiFUEL™ vehicle tags are highly robust maintenance-free passive low frequency (LF) RFID tags. They are designed for easy application on most industrial or consumer vehicles to wirelessly identify authorized vehicles to use the filling station and fuel type required controlled by Fuel Management Systems (FMS).

Vehicle RFID Tags are the easiest and most cost effective approach to identify vehicles to an FMS. However, if more advanced analytics are needed identiFUEL Vehicle Units can be implemented.

identiFUEL ™ vehicle tags are water and fuel-resistant and architected to withstand commercial fleet and retail fueling environments. To prevent fraudulent activities, vehicle tag models self-destruct if removed after installation.

Key Components:

Various form factors

Reports vehicle ID and fuel type to Nozzle Unit

Optional tamper protected models

Easy and durable affixation

125kHz, programmable tags


Uniquely identifies the vehicle to the Fuel Management System

Optionally reports distance driven and engine running times

Built-in RFID reader for optional driver authentication

The HID Global identiFUEL™ Vehicle Unit is an automatic system designed for vehicle identification and data reporting relating to vehicle usage.
The Vehicle Unit is installed inside the managed vehicle and should be connected to the odometer and ignition for optimal functionality.
Whenever the vehicle arrives at a corresponding fueling station with identiFUEL™ Wireless Controller, the unique ID of the Vehicle Unit is
reported along with the distance driven and engine running times.
This allows the Fuel Management System (FMS) operator to closely monitor vehicle utilization remotely.
The Vehicle unit is available in a rugged aluminum or standard plastic housing.
Connected to a proper antenna, the Vehicle Unit may also act as a lowfrequency (LF) reader to optionally
read an RFID badge or keyfob of the driver and / or the RFID tag on the filling nozzle (if no identiFUEL Nozzle Unit reader is used).
Two LEDs provide visual confirmation when the Vehicle Unit is scanning for tags. The tag information is sent along
with the vehicle unique ID and driving statistics to the FMS for reporting. It also enables the FMS to take more
sophisticated business rule decisions if and how much fuel shall be dispersed
based on driver and vehicle ID.

The HID Global identiFUEL™ Nozzle

Unit is a ruggedized, intrinsically safe RFID reader, used for Fueling Management Systems (FMS).

Multiple Nozzle Unit form factors are available to easily mount on standard fuel filling nozzles. The
unit turns a filling nozzle into an RFID reader that is automatically activated when the nozzle is tilted.

The Nozzle Unit is designed to work in combination with identiFUEL Vehicle Tags and Wireless
Controllers as RFID front-end for Fuel Management Systems.

As soon as the Nozzle Unit detects a corresponding vehicle tag, the tag’s unique ID and required fuel
information is sent via an encrypted channel to the corresponding identiFUEL™ Wireless Controller.

The controller communicates to the FMS software, which decides if and how much fuel to dispense.
Once the nozzle is removed from the vehicle, and the vehicle tag can no longer be read, the Nozzle Unit notifies the FMS
to stop the fuel dispersion.

The identiFUEL™ Nozzle Unit includes a dual-color led that indicates whether the unit is operational and a tag was successfully read.The rugged housing makes the Nozzle Unit resistant to typical fueling environments and rain water.

Multiple interface connection options available

The HID Global identiFUEL™ Wireless Controller (IWC) is a device that receives data from identiFUEL™
Vehicle or Nozzle Units and forwards this information to a central Fuel Management System (FMS).

The FMS software decides if and how much fuel to be dispensed based on received information and the configured business rules. The result
is submitted back to the fuel pump or the Wireless Controller for execution.
Using a variety of interface standards including Ethernet, RS485, RS232, Wiegand or USB, the IWC can
integrate with third-party systems intended for product transfer, fueling automation or access control.

The Wireless Controller utilizes an encrypted communication channel to the identiFUEL™ Vehicle and Nozzle
Units and covers a distance of up to 328 ft (100 m). Firmware upgrades are easily, possible post installation,
to keep the controller up to date.Two separate relays allow triggering external devices.
The identiFUEL™ Wireless Controller may either be embedded into other system components at the fueling site
or be mounted externally by utilizing the optional waterproof housing.
