Triangle MicroSystems Inc. (TMS), a fuel control systems company based in Raleigh, North Carolina, will celebrate its 40th year of business in April.
The company was formed in April 1978 as an engineering consulting business that focused primarily on contract engineering and microprocessor-based product development.
By 1982, TMS had developed its own product lines, a rapidly growing customer base and expertise in the design and manufacture of fuel control and automation systems for retail and commercial fuel dispensers.
TMS has continued to cultivate a reputation based on its products, strong product warranties and customer service department. TMS is in the heart of technology near the Research Triangle Park. TMS customers include large-scale and mom and pop stores, as well as marinas and commercial sites. The TMS network includes more than 500 distributors, dealers and service accounts across the U.S. and Canada.
The company’s controllers stand up to the harsh environments found in C-stores and marinas. The fuel control product line features:
- MPC and EZ consoles for electronic dispensers.
- The MPC Hybrid console, which replaces the TMS-800F Plus controller for mechanical pumps.
- The M2E (mechanical to electronic) converter board, which converts mechanical pulses into an electronic output, “converting” a mechanical pump into an electronic that can be controlled by any controller.
- The EZ/TXECSS System developed in response to a growing demand for an inexpensive pay-at-the-pump system. This product combines a TMS EZ fuel controller with a PC application written by TXECSS of Richardson, Texas, to create a cost-effective point-of-sale system. The system can control a range of electronic dispensers with or without on-board card readers and will manage any payment mode: cash, credit, debit or proprietary cards. This product is ideal for small, independent gasoline stations, marinas and C-stores.
