Understand how an advanced solution can be simple.

The SAAF (Automated Fleet Supply System) ensures savings and safety because it controls accurately all the fuel consumed. The system facilitates and controls all the operation in a quick and accurate manner where, in a few steps, it is capable of validating, monitoring and recording the supply, whether on the road or in the field.

Below you can have a step-by-step overview of supply with SAAF.
The steps can vary depending upon the solution level acquired. To know the differences also read the SAAF Solution Levels session.



Step 1

Pista - Passo 1

Driver parks beside the pump and requests supply.

Step 2

Pista - Passo 2

The operator identifies the driver and itself in the microterminal by card or ID and inserts the password.

Step 3

Pista - Passo 3

The Automated Nozzle is positioned by the operator at the tank input and identifies the vehicle through the reading of the VID (Vehicle Identifier Device).

Step 4

Pista - Passo 4

The TX Module installed in the vehicle captures in an automatic manner the information of the odometer or hour meter and sends it through radio frequency to Base 2.4GHz.

Step 5

Pista - Passo 5

With the supply authorized, the fuel flow is released by the control of activation of pumps and the Operator starts the supply.


At the end, the supply is recorded in the SAAF the information being available for inquiry through reports.



Step 1

Comboio - Passo 1

The driver parks beside the fuel truck.

Step 2

Comboio - Passo 2

The Automated Nozzle is positioned by the operator at the tank input and the vehicle is identified through the reading of the VID.

Step 3

Comboio - Passo 3

The data for release of the supply is inserted in the terminal.

Step 4

Comboio - Passo 4

The terminal automatically reads the odometer and hour meter of the vehicle sent by radio frequency by the TX Module.

Step 5

Comboio - Passo 5

With the supply authorized the fuel flow is released.


At the end, the data recorded in the supply is printed on the ticket.

The SAAF for your business

With the different scopes you choose how much you intend to automate your supply acquiring the ideal solution in accordance with your requirements.

SAAF Scope 1

SAAF solution with manual identification of the Attendant and Vehicle

In this first SAAF solution level it is possible to execute the automatic record of volumes supplied, identify vehicles, as well as attendants/drivers by password and/or card with bar code. The vehicles and drivers are recognized through a numerical password and/or card with bar code in a microterminal arranged beside the supply pump.

SAAF Scope 2

SAAF Solution with automated Vehicle identification

At this second level, it is possible to identify vehicles automatically using an VID (Vehicle Identifier Device) device. VIDs are devices fixed to the inside of the mouth of the fuel tank of each vehicle, which, in turn, is recognized by the Special AVI Nozzle Reader.

SAAF Scope 3

Complete SAAF solution with automated Vehicle identification and Telemetry

At this third solution level, it is possible to identify vehicles automatically and also to take an automatic reading of odometers / hour meters using the Telemetry system, ensuring more reliable and secure information.



Regardless of whether the SAAF solution is scope 1, 2 or 3, in addition to the SAAF features at the fueling station and at the rear, IONICS has developed Truck Terminal, equipment installed onto fueling trucks that take fuel to the field, where vehicles and machines require fueling.

In addition to controlling and ensuring the consumption of data and fueling of the vehicle/machine automatically, the Truck Terminal is also used to obtain and store other various information inserted into it during the pit stop. A reduction in the pit stop time by around 35% has already been observed. As a contingency measure, the fueling can also be released using the keyboard, if configured.

Flexibility to serve various segments

Built to operate in harsh environments, 24 hours a day, the Truck Terminal is secure, responsive to data, and robust. Below are some of the technical features of the Terminal:

  • GPRS module:
    • Allows fueling data to be collected in real time, using the GPRS network
    • Has support from the main mobile telephone operators on the market
    • Allows double SIM CARD use, which provides contingency measures if there is no signal for a specific operator at specific sites
  • It features a precision digital display
  • Allows identification of the activity, implement, lot and operator via keyboard, and the inclusion of data on ridges and calibration of tires, as well as other configurable data in accordance with the manager’s needs
  • Upon return to the fueling station (station) all operations registered on site at the Truck Terminal are exported to the SAAF system base using a removable memory (pen drive), GPRS, or wireless
  • Enables the automatic reading of odometers and hour meters via 2.4 Ghz radio
  • Features a printer coupled to the Terminal for printing tickets on paper roll
  • Features interface compatible with barcode readers
  • Memory for more than 10,000 fueling operations

All of this 100% integrated with fueling carried out at the fixed station, ensuring overall control of the entire fleet fueling operation.
