The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has approved the In-Station Diagnostics (ISD) certification for Veeder-Root’s TLS-450PLUS Automatic Tank Gauge (ATG), Vontier Corporation, a global technologies provider and Veeder-Root, a subsidiary of Vontier, announced in a press release. The certification took effect on July 28, 2023.

Under CARB regulations, California gas stations with an annual throughput of more than 600,000 gallons must be equipped with an approved In-Station Diagnostic system.

“Vontier is committed to supporting our customers as they adapt to evolving regulatory requirements and industry trends,” said Mark Morelli, president and CEO of Vontier. “Sustainability is key to our strategy. At the same time, delivering differentiated solutions that increase our customers’ productivity is equally as critical, and the TLS-450PLUS enables both.”

The TLS-450PLUS platform brings retailers additional capabilities that improve operational efficiency, including remote monitoring and management, enhance network security and lower cost of ownership while still providing the same reliability of the TLS-350 system, said the companies. The TLS-450PLUS also provides extended record retention, role-based access management and an intuitive user interface via the touch screen or a web browser.

"We’re excited to bring the TLS-450PLUS to this important market,” said Dave Coombe, president of Gilbarco Veeder-Root, Fueling Solutions. “This certification is the result of close coordination and collaboration between our engineering team and CARB.”

Gilbarco Veeder-Root recently rebranded its retail solutions unit to Invenco by GVR.
