Cloudbox Configuration

Once your Cloudbox has been installed by an electrician, you can finish configuring it in your FuelCloud account. Configuring a Cloudbox has three steps:

  1. Adding the Cloudbox in your FuelCloud account
  2. Activating the hardware with its serial number
  3. Configuring the hardware's relays

Adding & Activating the Cloudbox

You can add a Cloudbox from the Hardware section, or directly from a Site. Hardware must be assigned to a Site in order to complete setup. To add a Cloudbox:

  1. Go to Manage and click Hardware
  2. Click Add Hardware
  3. Make sure Cloudbox is selected
  4. Select the Site where this Cloudbox was installed
  5. Enter a name for the Cloudbox. This is used to identify it in your account. It will not appear in FuelCloud app at the pump.
  6. Enter the Serial Number for your Cloudbox
  7. Click Next
  8. Review the payment details, then click Add Hardware

Configuring Relays

Before configuring your hardware, be sure you have added a Site and added a Tank to your account. To configure the Cloudbox relay so it's connected to the appropriate tank:

  1. Go to Manage and click Hardware
  2. Find the Hardware you just added within the list, and click on it. (If you didn't assign this hardware to a site, then head on over to your Site section instead. You'll need to add it to your site first.)
  3. You'll find the hardware you just added in one of the rows under Your Site Configuration. At the end of that row, click the gear icon, then click Configure Relay. 
  4. Name the pump something descriptive. This name will be what drivers see when they're pumping fuel in the FuelCloud app
  5. Enter the Pulse Rate
  6. Select the Tank that this pump is connected to. If you don't see the right tank, it may be assigned to a different Site. Check the tank's settings to reassign it.
  7. Click Save, and you're all set!

Pulse Rate: The pulse rate is the number of pulses equal to one gallon. Consult your pulser's manual to find this value. If the pulse rate is not set properly, your fuel measurements will not be accurate.
