DTN, a leading information services company, announced the latest release of DTN Guardian3™ that delivers configurability, speed and integrated reporting functions to its industry-leading terminal automation system (TAS).


DTN Guardian3’s updates provide several new capability and configuration options, catering to variables at the terminal and customer preferences. In conjunction with these added options, upgraded application operations inside DTN Guardian3 increase system efficiency and flexibility.


As a leader in downstream automation, Schneider Electric is constantly retooling its automated solutions to meet customer needs. With this highly flexible module, DTN Guardian3 users can protect the terminal and control their product with an out-of-the-box solution to streamline and normalize processes.


Expanded Capability

With expanded weigh scale capability, DTN Guardian3 can process all operations—not just refined fuels. Expanded complex weight scale capabilities help to meet the demands of adjacent markets, whether petrochemicals, propane, asphalt or crude offload or others. With its expanded weigh scale capabilities for tank space conversions, if the product can be metered or weighed, DTN Guardian3 can load it and produce a bill of lading (BOL).


Greater Configurability

The latest version of DTN Guardian3 also gives flexibility for users and customers to meet various business demands. Added capabilities allow users to:

  • Implement flex fields and customized prompts to tailor DTN Guardian3 to the operation, not the other way around
  • Specify language, date and time formatting by driver, allowing them to pre-set preferences independent from Windows and Oracle
  • Utilize split loading functions, making it easier for drivers to load multiple compartments for different customers on a single truck
  • Customize and automate any reports the business might need through a fully integrated reporting engine


Equipped with added flexibility, terminal operators can better meet the unique business demands of customers and take the reins of their operational efficiency. DTN Guardian3’s highly customizable configuration module works to accommodate numerous industry standards by allowing cohesion with a variety of cases – all with one type of TAS software.


Increased Speed

Furthering operational efficiency, the latest version of DTN Guardian3 includes 64-bit application support to enhance system bandwidth and speed. This specific enhancement ensures that applications inside DTN Guardian3 run faster and with more stability, for greater overall effectiveness.
