With a proprietary new companion display tradenamed Pulse, and powerful new Micon Nextgen 1.0 electronics, “Optima enables enhanced station control and performance,” the company says, with “unmatched data and communication capabilities.”

“Optima is the result of three decades of CNG focused dispenser experience and feedback from the field,” the company says. It provides “full access to error codes, software upgrades, and fill parameter set points either locally or remotely” from smartphones, tablets, or laptops.

‘Functionality Beyond Current Standards’

“The new Micon NextGen 1.0,” Kraus Global says, “builds upon proven Micon 500 technology elevating functionality beyond current standards with data capabilities and configuration tools delivering smarter control, increased efficiency, and higher profitability.

“Real time data is visible on the Pulse display, allowing users to follow fill progression as it communicates the starting and ending parameters of their filling process, reassuring that a target was established and then safely met.”


18 Months of Experience

“We have been beta testing Optima for approximately 18 months and have received positive feedback from our customers,” Kraus Global CEO Ossama AbouZeid says in a release. “Their support has been tremendous and we appreciate their loyalty,” AbouZeid said.

AbouZeid names AVSG/Alternative Vehicle Services Group, Independent Fueling Systems, Love’s Trillium CNG, Nopetro, Pacific Gas & Electric, Timco, and U.S. Gain as Optima customers.
