If the meter is the heart of any dispenser then the calculator is undoubtedly the brain. The Tokheim Quality Calculator™ (TQC) is a highly intelligent and reliable calculator that utilises the latest technology in terms of communication and performance.
It provides a level of functionality that no previous calculators or media devices could deliver. It allows you to manage your fuel more effectively and engage with your customers more easily.
The TQC acknowledges the limitations of traditional calculators and, instead, effortlessly connects its internal communications with the outside world. Built on Linux, the TQC utilises a powerful ARM9 processor in combination with
Can-bus technology to ensure that you have the most advanced calculator in today’s market. With the TQC your dispenser is ‘future-proofed’ to meet the technology changes of tomorrow.
A powerful set of applications protect against dispenser tampering or attempts to manipulate devices. Through a secure link between the hydraulic controller and the main CPU, the TQC is effectively tamper-proof with encrypted internal communications adding an additional layer of security. The calculator’s software and hardware is also specifically
designed to prevent the manipulation of measurements with digital and physical tagging of all boards and peripherals. This design ensures that you won’t suffer loss of fuel sales should there be a disconnection at the dispenser electronics or external manipulation of the pulser/meter.
TQC has onboard TCP-IP facilities that can be activated as a gateway to the outside world. You can link into a local station network, either via IFSF over Ethernet or set up a link to a WAN for information exchange with central host systems. This allows for more effective servicing via remote diagnostics and the ability to run software upgrades remotely. By utilising the Tokheim TQC-VGA™ media and payment display unit, you can also manage promotions or information running on the dispenser screens from your laptop from anywhere at any time.
MID certification is one of the main recurring costs during the lifetime of a dispenser; however, our ‘dual-software’ design helps save the time and money associated with re-certification. With the dual software concept, the TQC is split into both Weights
and Measures (W&M) related software and non-W&M related software. Now, only W&M related software changes require MID re-certification and many new product enhancements can be done with a MID re-approval.
The TQC VGA’s all-in-one media screen and calculator is the most effective way of delivering media to a captive audience. Unlike other current media dispenser integrated options, the 17-inch TQC VGA delivers all information in one dedicated screen, providing a valuable platform where you can effectively communicate with your target audience.
The display stimulates customers to increase their average spend on impulse purchases, as well as additional services such as the car wash, etc. Upgrading to TQC-VGA is simple and provides a strong return on investment and Through T-Media’s easy-to-use schedule plan, you can choose what presentations you’d like to run and when.
