AvaLAN Wireless Obtains UL Safety Certification from MET Laboratories

Certification allows full-scale deployment to any desiring party with the assurance of quality, security, and safety, publishes avalan.com

MET Laboratories, Inc. has evaluated AvaLAN's wireless in-dispenser subscriber unit (IDSU) with integrated secure cloud-managed network switch and has found it to be compliant with UL 1238; Control Equipment for Use with Flammable Liquid Dispensing Devices and CSA C22.2 No. 22; Electrical Equipment for Flammable and Combustible Fuel Dispensers.

AvaLAN Wireless has been working with leading fuel dispenser manufacturers and large fuel retails to provide a secure next generation wireless networking solution for network connectivity in the forecourt. This certification opens the door for volume deployment of AvaLAN's product in the commercial and retail fuel dispensing market.

The AvaLAN Wireless Forecourt Access Point and In-Dispenser Unit offer secure and reliable local wireless networking connectivity to fuel dispensers. In addition to the wireless local area network, the secure managed switch has been integrated into the unit to connect additional fuel center devices like point-of-sale systems, merchant service gateway and/or forecourt controller.

The AW584EMVAP utilizes wired and wireless networking communications; their EMV solutions for fuel centers eliminates the need to excavate and re-wire the forecourt or rely on a questionable workaround using existing wiring. Transmissions utilize a proprietary protocol along with encryption technology and segmented networking for a truly secure connection. These units interface directly with major fuel dispensers and retail POS systems with ample bandwidth for premium forecourt solutions like video or interactive customer engagement.

AvaLAN Wireless provides EMV and PCI compliance for today and high bandwidth forecourt enhancements tomorrow. For cost-effective EMV upgrades, visit AvaLAN at NACS trade show booth 7685, www.avalan.com/emv or call 866.533.6216.
