Administration and Information

Use any computer, any mobile device, anywhere: Assign drivers, vehicles and tanks via the state-of-the-art Cipacto Administration Platform (CAP).

All data are instantly available in any desired depth and according to customisable rights and roles.

Alert in case of unsual behaviour.

Access Control

Digitally controlled double authentication of driver and vehicle.

Keyless access via smartphone app.

Tanks recognise authorisation and unlock and lock automatically.

Immediate transmission of obligatory fuelling confirmation including all tank data.

Measuring

High precision sensors for measurements of filling level, flow, location, temperature and pressure.

Additional data recordings of user, vehicle or machine, fuelling time, duration, micro-actions and more

After refuelling all data are instantly transmitted via smartphone app.

 

Intelligence

Reduce costs and efforts: Sensors automatically recognise tank size, shape, and material.

Automatic message for next tank refilling based on dynamic usage.

Automatic identification of unusual occurences.

Geofencing, leakage warning.

 

Cipacto works. Secure. Keyless. Integrated.

Tank Preparation

Tanks are equipped with Cipacto´s universal sensor system and the Cipacto Sender Receiver Unit that opens and closes the tank.

The installation is quick and easy.

Enable Double Authentication

Refuelling is only possible if  driver and vehicle are authorised. To this end, each vehicle or machine is fitted with a beacon as identification device.

The installation takes literally seconds.

 

Driver, Vehicle and Tank Authorisations

Authorisations are managed via the web-based Cipacto Administration Platform (CAP). Drivers, vehicles and tanks can be easily assigned in any desired constellation.

Any change can be done with immediate effect.

Driver Identification

Drivers authorise themselves via login to the Cipacto smartphone app.

The app displays only available vehicles. As soon as the authentication has been confirmed, the driver can see all available tanks.

Refuelling

When driver and vehicle approach a tank they are identified via wireless secure connection. The tank unlocks automatically if the authorisation is confirmed. The driver can immediately refuel without any further action.

The refuelling is recorded in depth. After refuelling the tank locks automatically, unauthorised use is not possible. The driver confirms the refuelling via smartphone app, all data are immediately transmitted to the CAP.

 

Reporting

Based on the according rights the Cipacto Administration Platform offers a full and detailed view of all activities.

If the system recognises unusual behaviour or irregularities the business owner is informed immediately.

All users can see their individual history.

Manufacturers

Cipacto offers a variety of unique features that are highly flexible and customisable. The customer-centric approach that we have chosen allows to review products and production processes on a completely new basis.

Cipacto integrates with (almost) any system and extends business relations and connectivity from strategic and operational aspects to a new level.

Suppliers

Cipactos combines a holistic aproach with modular components that can be easily integrated into existing environments. 

The product has been developed with the intention to refit exisiting tanks and make them fit for today´s requirements.

Key component is the sensor technology that allows the integration into any tank. 

Tank Owners

Cipacto offers an A-Z integrated digital system that answers today´s challenges for companies of every size: How do you bring ever quicker growing requirements for flexibility and mobility in line with the critical aspects of transparency and control? How do you reduce administration efforts and increase business knowledge? Is it possible to integrate tanks into the value chain and make them a business asset?

We have developed a product that offers more than one feature but has the aim to exploit the benefits of digitisation from a holistic point of view. It enables tank owners to decide if they want to automatise processes, anticipate events, and establish or change business relation on a new basis.

CIPACTO @ FIT4START

Cipacto has been invited to the 10th edition of the renowned Fit4Start programme in Luxemburg. We are sincerely honoured to be selected from more than 360 applications and are given the opportunity to present Cipacto on presentation day.

The event was planned to take place as usual end of March - but obviously things are slightly different this year. We are looking forward to autumn... 

Some questions that you might have

What is a beacon?

A beacon is a small transmitter that uses the low-energy Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) protocol to send signals to other smart devices. Beacons are often used in marketing, but we use them for identification and localisation. Beacons are very versatile concerning their functionality and can be programmed in numerous ways, but one clear advantage is their positional accuracy.

What is the Sender Receiver Unit (SRU)?

The SRU connects the tank with the user. It confirms - or rejects - the request to open the tank and collects all data during the refuelling process. The SRU secures the tank after the fuelling process. The SRU is designed, developed and produced by Cipacto.

Do you impact the tank´s construction?

No. The system is implemented without any impact on the construction of the tank.

Can the system be used across borders?

It is part of the core functionality that communication concerning mobile devices (tanks) is guaranteed irrespective of their localisation. Therefore the system works generally globally, currently across Europe.

Can we combine tanks from more than one manufacturer?

Absolutely. Our system is designed to be 100% manufacturer-independent. 

What about other liquids than diesel?

Currently our sensors work with diesel. If you are interested in measuring other materials, please get in contact with us. 

How do you ensure data transfer?

All data are stored on the smartphone app until an internet connection is available. 

This is us

Cipacto is an industrial IOT (IIOT) start-up, founded by experts in web technology, sensor technology, embedded engineering and artificial intelligence. We think that fluid containers play a key role in today´s mobile world, and we are conviced that their value is grossly underrated. Fuelling technology has not changed significantly for around the past 50 years. We want to change that.

Cipacto is located in Madrid and Vienna.
