About the FT4000AP

The FT4000AP is a simple yet sophisticated Integrated fuel pump/ Fuel Management system, comprising a forecourt standard fuel pump and a world class fuel monitoring system in the same cabinet. The FT4000AP is designed to provide complete control for commercial transport organisations dispensing fuel to authorised vehicles on-site.

The FT4000AP comprises hardware  and  software, the hardware is a highly specified Fuel Access Control Terminal (FACT) designed to be installed at the fuelling location. The FT4000 communicates with FUELTEK FMO Browser based software, which is accessible from any location with internet access.

The FT4000 can use any of the Fueltek access methods available.


The FT4000AP is specified as a combination fuel dispenser / fuel management system. The FT4000AP can control up to 4 fuel pumps simultaneously ( 1 internal and 3 external).

The FT4000AP is capable of up to four pump simultaneous operation. The FT4000 system incorporates a robust heavy duty keypad which enables odometer readings, driver ID’s, fleet numbers, job codes etc. to be entered at the point of fuelling. The FT4000 can be specified with keypad options including Full alpha Numeric, multiple choice alpha numeric (old style text messaging) or simply numeric.

The FT4000AP system incorporates a highly visible ¼ VGA back- lit graphics display which displays clear concise messages, to complete the user interface we use our extremely reliable Datatag reader or one of the other options available including Datadisk, Datacard or Magnetic Stripe card.

The FT4000AP incorporates vehicle / driver messaging. A message can be programmed at FUELTEK FMO  and can be sent to the FACT. The next time the relevant Datatag is used at the FACT a message will be displayed.  The  FT4000 system  has  the  capability  to provide  unlimited  storage  capacity  for  look  up  tables,  fleet  lists  and  transaction  storage,  the  system  offers  a  minimum  primary  memory capacity of 2,000 transactions between downloads, these are stored in non-volatile memory that does not require a  battery  back-up,  which,  means  even  in  the  event  of  a mains  power fail  the  system  will  retain  all  data. The primary memory can be upgraded to store a larger number of transactions if required.

Access Method

The FT4000 system offers choices of access method. Datatag, Datadisk, Datacard or Mag Stripe card. The Datatag/ Datadisk is our preferred method and is guaranteed for the life of system.

The Datatag  we  manufacture  is  a  read/write  tag,  incorporating high security authentication using a cryptographic algorithm and  a  guaranteed  100,000  read/write  cycles  minimum.  Data retention is 10 years minimum. The advantages of the Datatag are that there are no moving parts maintenance is therefore low, saving costs in the long term on the upkeep of the system. Datatags supplied are guaranteed for the life of the system. The datatag is a read/write device and can be programmed with many  operating  parameters.  All FUELTEK access devices are programmed directly from FUELTEK FMO, you do not have to be in possession of the device to be programed, you can commit changes at FUELTEK FMO and the device will be updated the next time it is used in the FT4000 ( FACT).


For  reporting  purposes  data  is  uploaded  from  the  FACT  to FUELTEK FMO. Reports can be generated, scheduled for automatic delivery at pre-determined times, viewed and / or printed from any location with internet access.


The FT4000 / FUELTEK FMO can support a number or communication methods.

Most commonly we use GPRS modems to allow internet connectivity at the FACT. GPRS ( General Packet Radio Service) is a wireless data service and is a connectivity solution based on internet protocols. No call charges apply using GPRS as a small monthly rental fee covers an amount of data transferred.

We can network Interface allowing the FT4000 to form part of a LAN / WAN.

We can utilise Bluetooth, Wi-fi or even cable RS232 or RS485 to provide a route into your own Broadband connection if required. 


The Main Tasks of FUELTEK FMO are:

  • Communications to the FACT
  • Programming Datatags/ access devices
  • Maintaining tables ( DriverFuellerLockout )
  • Running Reports
  • Stock Control
  • Backing up data periodically

FUELTEK FMO  incorporates a reports generator which gives you the ability to create and customise your own reports.
