TABLE OF CONTENTS

TMS MPC SYSTEM INTRODUCTION

MPC consoles can control multi-product dispensers (MPD's) with up to 4 grades per fueling position. Each side of an MPD counts as one fueling position on the console (regardless of the number of grades); each hose on a single-product dispenser counts as one fueling position. An MPC-8 console can control a maximum of 8 fueling positions; an MPC-16 console can control a maximum of 16 fueling positions. There are two console models in the MPC product line: the MPC Standard and the MPC Hybrid. MPC Standard consoles are intended for use with electronic dispensers only. MPC Hybrid consoles can control mechanical dispensers (regardless of manufacturer), electronic dispensers, or a combination of the two. Every MPC console is assembled at the factory with one of several available software types; each software type allows the console to communicate with electronic dispensers made by a specific manufacturer. Specify specific pump manufacturer when ordering an MPC Standard or Hybrid system.

The MPC Standard and the MPC Hybrid models are available in an 8 or 16 fueling position version, and will control any combination of the following:

APS electronic dispenser models: Classic.

Bennett electronic dispenser models: 6000, 7000, 8000, and 9000, Horizon 2000. NOTE: the MPC WILL NOT control Bennett 5000 dispensers.

Gilbarco electronic dispenser models: Highline, Salesmaker, MPD (-A3, -1, -2, -3), Advantage Series pumps/dispensers, including blend style.

NOTE: Some Gilbarco electronic pumps/dispensers transmit the final transaction data at a much slower rate than others do, which may cause the MPC Hybrid console to miss pulses received from any mechanical fueling position in operation. Turning the console's dipswitch position #6 ON allows the console to momentarily (less than a second) close the fast valves of all mechanical positions in operation anytime an electronic handle is hung-up. This slows the fuel delivery rate to allow an accurate pulser reading from the mechanical hoses, while the console and "slow" electronic pumps/dispensers complete a data transmission.

Mechanical dispensers: All makes of mechanical hoses, regardless of manufacturer. In addition, the MPC Hybrid also controls Gasboy 9800 series, Krause, PMC (Pump Measure Control) electronic hoses via the 800F Mechanical Interface Box.

Tokheim electronic dispenser models: 162, 262A, TCS, TCSA, and Premier. NOTE: MPC systems WILL NOT control Tokheim Model 262 (non-A) dispensers, or Tokheim MMD's (222's, 333's, or 444's).

THE STATUS LIGHTS, KEY SWITCHES, AND THE MODE/AMOUNT DISPLAY WINDOW

Refer to Figure 2 below while learning about the console controls.

The status lights are all located at the top of the console, and show the status of each fueling position.

CALL/AUTH LIGHTS (#1): A flashing light above a fueling position number indicates that a customer has picked up a hose and turned the handle on. The operator must authorize that fueling position before the customer can pump fuel. When authorized, the light for that fueling position changes to constantly on.

COLLECT LIGHTS (#2): A flashing light below a fueling position number indicates a customer has hung a hose up, and the post-pay sale is waiting to be finalized. If a light under a fueling position number stays on, a present and a stacked sale (two sales at one position) are waiting to be finalized.

A, B, C, D LIGHTS (#3): These lights, located at the left end of the display window, indicate which product button or hose has been selected during a sale at an MPD. During sales at a single product fueling position, only the "A" light turns (the only hose available) no matter the grade.

PUMP/MODE Portion of the Display Window (#4) The display window has a total of eight digits. The two leftmost digits are labeled "PUMP/MODE", and display the fueling position or MODE number that has been selected by the operator.

The Manager's Keyswitch (#5): This keyswitch is located on the left front of the console, and must be in the ON position (horizontal as shown in figure 2) to enter or change programmed information in the console's memory. For normal operation, the keyswitch should be in the OFF position (vertical) and the key removed from the console.

NOTE: The console is operational whether the manager's keyswitch is turned ON or OFF. It is recommended to turn the keyswitch OFF for security reasons only.

The Emergency Off Switch (#6): This switch (EMER OFF) is the red switch located on the front of the console. Pressing this switch causes the "EMER OFF" light to flash, and a "turn off" signal is sent to all fueling positions. Press this switch again, and the light will stop flashing, and a "resume pumping" signal will be sent to each position that was originally pumping (and not yet hung up).

NOTE: The Emergency Off Switch may not meet the Local Building, Electrical, or Fire Codes for the emergency shut off of fuel dispensing equipment. Refer to the Installation Guide for a description of the Emergency Off relay circuit, and the Local Building, Electrical, or Fire Codes for proper emergency precautions and/or connections for shut off of fuel dispensing equipment.

The OFF/ON Keyswitch (#7): This keyswitch, located on the right front of the console, must be in the ON position (horizontal as shown in figure 2) for normal operation. This switch should be turned OFF whenever AC power to the system is turned off.

AMOUNT Portion of the Display Window (#8): The six right -most digits display data for sales in progress, programmed data, and sales total information stored in the console's memory for the fueling position or MODE that is selected.

PREPAY, CASH, CREDIT, STACK Lights (#9): These lights, at the right end of the display window, indicate if the sale is a pre-pay (prepay, and either cash or credit light on), a cash, or credit post-pay (both lights on indicate cash = credit pricing). If a stack sale is present at a fueling position (light stays on while viewing the stacked sale).

THE KEYPADS AND BUTTONS

Refer to Figure 3 below while learning about the PUMP SELECT and DATA ENTRY keypads and the function buttons.

The 0 Through 9 Buttons: These buttons are located on the lower right side of the console, and are used to enter prepay sale amounts, to access various programming modes, and to enter program data into the console's memory.

PUMP SELECT keypad (#1):This set of 8 or 16 buttons is used to select fueling positions to view sales in progress,or to authorize positions for preset, prepay, or post-pay sales, and to program information into the console's memory by individual fueling position.

VOL/GAL (#2): Press this button to view volume amounts. The correct fueling position must be selected and in the collect status to view a volume amount. If the sale has been paid-out, see instructions for MODE 17. Hold a tank number on the Data Entry keypad while in MODE 64 or 74 and press this button to view the volume sold from a particular tank.

STACK (#3): Press this button to toggle between the current and the stacked sale. To allow a stacked sale, the console's dipswitch position 3 must be ON. The stack light will flash if the fueling position selected has a sale in the stacked position. Press the STACK button to view the stacked sale and the light stays on. Press STACK again to toggle to the current sale. For more information, see COMPLETING A STACKED SALE

The A, B, C, and D PRODUCT buttons (#4): These four buttons are located in the lower left corner of the console and are used for programming and retrieving sales total information relative to product hoses. These buttons are not used during normal operation, and do not relate to any tank. The A button relates to the first hose, B the second, C the third, and D the fourth hose at a particular fueling position.

NOTE: The hose at any single product fueling position is ALWAYS identified as the "A" hose at the console.

CHNG (#5): The change button has three functions:

1. Press CHNG to enter (or change) programmed data into the console's memory.

2. Following an incomplete prepaid sale, press and hold CHNG to view the change ($) due to the customer.

3. While a prepaid sale is in process, press and hold CHNG to view the remaining amount of the sale.

DISC (#6): Press this button to alternate between the cash or credit value of the post-pay sale in the COLLECT status. The dollar amount displayed will change only if two-tier pricing is used.

SEL (#7): Press and hold this button while pressing numbers on the DATA ENTRY keypad to enter a desired program or totals MODE. Press again to return to normal operation.

CREDIT PAID (#8): Press to finalize a credit post-pay sale, or to authorize a prepay sale at the credit price.

AUTH (#9): Press after pressing a PUMP SELECT button to authorize a sale. If the sale is to be a preset, prepay cash, or prepay credit sale, press after the sale amount has been entered on the data entry keypad.

CASH PAID (#10): Press to finalize a cash post-pay sale, or to authorize a prepay sale at the cash price.

PUMP STOP (#11): Press to de-authorize a fueling position, or stop a sale in progress at a particular fueling position.

GENERAL PROGRAMMING INFORMATION

The programming steps required for the MPC are found in thesuggested set-up sequence. The console must know what kind of pumps/dispensers it is controlling by fueling position, if the fueling position is full or self service, what grade (tank) is dispensed through each product hose, and the price of each grade. This allows the console to send prices to the pumps/dispensers, and to maintain grade totals.

Setting the style in which sales are made and completed is accomplished through the 8 position dip switch located on the inside of the console as shown in figure 6. Operational options include allowing pre-paid, post-paid and stacked sales, and single or two-tier pricing schemes.

The console can be programmed to give totals by individual fueling positions as well as sales totals by grade and tank. The mechanical totalizer readings and declining tank inventories can be programmed into memory, and be read from the console. Full or Self Service operation by fueling position and manual or automatic receipt printing are also programming options.

The MPC console controls blend style pump/dispensers. The blended product is considered a grade like any other, and the product hose or button at the pump/dispenser is assigned to a "dummy" tank in the console's memory. With a printer attached, the total sale amounts of each grade, expressed in both money and volume, are printed on the Shift, Manager's and Accumulating reports, and are accurate as well.

The A, B, C, and D lights and product buttons on the MPC console (fig. 4) correspond to the hoses or product select buttons at individual fueling positions. During a sale, lights on the console indicate which hose or product select button has been selected at the pump/dispenser. For a multi-product fueling position, the A light indicates that the A hose (or product select button A) has been selected, the B light indicates the B hose, and so on; at a single product fueling position the A light is the only product hose indicator.

Be aware that the product light does not correspond to the fuel "grade" being dispensed from a particular hose; it corresponds to the hose itself. Fuel grades (up to six) correspond to "tanks" assigned to hoses during the initial programming of the console (see TANK TO PRODUCT HOSE ASSIGNMENT).

REMEMBER: The manager's keyswitch must be in the ON position before programmed data can be entered or changed.

The CHNG button must be pressed to change or enter data into the console's memory.

HOLD the SEL button to enter any programming or totals MODE.

PRESS the SEL button to exit any programming or totals MODE.

SETTING THE CONSOLE DIPSWITCH FOR OPERATIONAL OPTIONS

Operational options include allowing pre-paid, post-paid, and stacked sales and single or two-tier pricing schemes. The console dipswitch is set from the factory with both prepaid and postpaid sales allowed, stacking is disallowed, single tier pricing, and according to the number of fueling positions ordered (8 or 16 fueling positions). Figure 5 illustrates #1 ON, #2 ON, #3 OFF, #'s 4 and 5 OFF, and #8 OFF (16 fueling positions).

Prepay: A customer pays for a specific amount of fuel before pumping. The operator sets the fueling position for that amount, presses the PAID, then the AUTH button. The console requires no further steps from the operator.

Preset: the operator sets a fueling position for an amount, and presses the AUTH button. The customer has not paid any money, so when the customer hangs the nozzle up, he must pay the operator before the sale can be made final.

Post-pay: the amount of fuel dispensed is entirely up to the customer. The operator pre-authorizes the sale for fill-up.

Stacking: allows the operator to re-authorize a sale for a second customer while waiting for the first customer to pay.

Two -tier: the cash and credit prices per gallon are not the same.

Single tier: there is no difference between the cash and credit price per gallon.

The 8 position dip switch is located at the lower left corner of the console near where the A,B,C, and D product buttons are (see figure 6), on the inside of the console. To gain access to the console dipswitch, remove the four rubber feet on the underside of the console and pull the base away from the top portion of the console.

Tokheim
162 and 262A single price display: 00
TCS, TCSA Premier, 262A (2 display): 03
TCS, TCSA Premier Blender: 21
Blender reversed plumbed: 22

MODE 28 AND 29

TANK TO PRODUCT HOSE ASSIGNMENT

The plumbing from the tanks to the pumps/dispensers determines what grade is dispensed through a product hose.

MODE 28 allows the assignment of product hoses to tanks by individual fueling positions (single, and multi-hose pumps/dispensers). When controlling single-hose fueling positions (including mechanical), or a combination of single and multiple hose fueling positions, use MODE 28.

MODE 29 programs all "A" product hoses of every fueling position to the same tank (station wide), all of the "B" product hoses to another, and so on. Use MODE 29 only if all fueling positions are MPD's, and all are plumbed the same way. If the fuel from "like" product hoses is not from the same tank, use MODE 28.

NOTE:
The blended product (B product) of Blender fueling positions must be assigned to a "dummy" tank to allow pricing by tank, and for a product code and grade total to show on receipts and reports.

MODE - 28 ASSIGN PRODUCT HOSES TO A TANK BY INDIVIDUAL FUELING POSITIONS

To assign individual fueling positions and product hoses to a tank, follow this procedure:

  1. Select MODE 28.
  2. Press and HOLD the desired pump select button.
  3. Press the corresponding hose/product (A, B, C, and D) button.
  4. Enter the tank number (1 through 6) on the DATA ENTRY keypad.
  5. Press CHNG button.
  6. Repeat steps 3 and 5 for all hoses at that fueling position.
  7. Release pump-select button.
  8. Repeat steps 2 through 6 for each fueling position.

MODE - 29 ASSIGN PRODUCT HOSE GROUPS TO A TANK

To assign product hose groups to a tank, follow this procedure:

  1. Select MODE 29.
  2. Press the corresponding product (A, B, C, and D) button.
  3. Enter the tank number (1 through 6) on the DATA ENTRY keypad.
  4. Press CHNG button.
  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each product hose.

Figure 7 illustrates the display window just before the CHNG button is pressed when programming fueling position 2, product hose B to tank 2. The MODE is 28, and the second hose (B) dispenses grade 2.

Programming information in MODE 28

MODE 34 - PROGRAM SELF OR FULL SERVICE OPERATION BY FUELING POSITION

IMPORTANT!

If some positions are to be set to full service operation, this procedure must be done before tank prices are entered in MODES 21 through 26.

All consoles are shipped from the factory set for self-service operation In self-service operation, the operator must authorize the fueling position before fuel can be dispensed. When a call signal is received from a full service fueling position, the console automatically sends an authorize signal, and will automatically "pay the sale out" after the nozzle is hung up. No operator actions are required for positions programmed for full service.

To program one or more fueling positions for full service operation, follow this procedure:

1. Select MODE 34.
2. Press and HOLD the desired pump select position.
3. Enter either:

00 = self service (default)
01 = full service

4. Press CHNG button.
5. Release pump select button.
6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each fueling position.

REMEMBER:
The manager's keyswitch must be in the ON (horizontal) position before programmed data can be entered.

MODES 21 TROUGH 26 - SET PRICES, PRODUCT CODES, AND INVENTORY LEVELS BY TANK

Programming prices by tank (or grade) sends the prices to every fueling position assigned to the tank selected in step 1 below, and allow assigning a product (name) code and a declining inventory to a tank (or grade).

NOTE:
Self, or full-service settings must NOT be changed after price programming!

To program information by tank, follow these steps:

1. Select the appropriate MODE for the desired tank.

MODE 21 = tank 1
MODE 22 = tank 2
MODE 23 = tank 3
MODE 24 = tank 4
MODE 25 = tank 5
MODE 26 = tank 6

2. Press the A, B, C, D buttons at the bottom left corner of the console to assign the following information to the tank selected in step 1:

"A" = tank's SELF SERVICE PRICE
"B" = tank's FULL SERVICE PRICE
"C" = tank's PRODUCT CODE (NAME)
"D" = DECLINING TANK INVENTORY

To program the SELF SERVICE PRICE, press and release the A button (the A light turns on).

* For SINGLE TIER pricing (both CASH and CREDIT lights on):

  1. Enter the price per gallon.
  2. Press the CHNG button (all lights turn off).

MODES 19 AND 20 - ARE NOT USED

MODES 21 TROUGH 26 - SET PRICES, PRODUCT CODES, AND INVENTORY LEVELS BY TANK

Programming the console by tank is the quickest and easiest way to set prices for every fueling position, and is the only way to assigning a product (name) code and a declining inventory to a tank. The programming instructions for these MODES are here.

MODE 27 - PRINT DECLINING TANK INVENTORY BALANCE

The volume levels of the fuel tanks at the station can be entered into the console's memory by following the instructions for MODES 21 - 26. The console will then subtract from these levels as sales are completed. The Declining Tank Inventory report can be printed at anytime a by selecting MODE 27 and pressing the PRINT button. This report will print the amount of fuel left in each tank.

REMEMBER: The console does not add fuel to the present tank levels following a product delivery. The new tank levels must be measured, then entered as a total into the console's memory.

MODE - 28 ASSIGN PRODUCT HOSES TO A TANK BY INDIVIDUAL FUELING POSITIONS

MODE 28 allows the assignment of each fueling position (single, and multi-hose pumps/dispensers) and product hose to a tank. Use MODE 28 when the site contains Single-Hose fueling positions (including mechanical), or a combination of Single and Multiple hose fueling positions. See programming instructions for MODE 28.

MODE - 29 ASSIGN PRODUCT HOSE GROUPS TO A TANK

MODE 29 programs all of the "A" product hoses of every fueling position to the same tank, all of the "B" product hoses to another, and so on. Use MODE 29 only if all fueling positions are MPD's, and all are plumbed the same way. If all of the "like" product hoses are not the same, use MODE 28. See programming instructions for MODE 29.

MODES 30 AND 31 - BEEPER SETTINGS FOR THE CALL AND COLLECT

The console acknowledges a button on the keypad being pressed by emitting an audible beep. The console can be programmed to utilize this "beeper" to alert the operator that a customer has lifted the nozzle and is requesting authorization (call), or a customer has finished fueling and the sale needs to be finalized (collect). The call and collect beeps can be changed from a repeating beep (default), to a single beep, or no beep at all. See instructions for this MODE.

MODE 32 - SPECIFY PUMP TYPE

For the console to operate properly, each fueling position must be defined by programming the correct code number into the console's memory. See set up sequence and MODE 32 instructions.

MODE 33 - IS NOT USED

MODE 34 - PROGRAM SELF OR FULL SERVICE OPERATION BY FUELING POSITION

All consoles are shipped from the factory set for self-service operation. Using MODE 34, each fueling position can be set to self or full service operation. In self-service operation, the operator must authorize the fueling position before fuel can be dispensed. When a call signal is received from a full service fueling position, the console automatically sends an authorize signal, and will automatically "pay the sale out" after the nozzle is hung up. No operator actions are required for positions programmed for full service. See MODE 34 instructions.

MODES 35 AND 36 - SET/DISPLAY THE TIME AND DATE

The console has an internal time clock that allows it to print the correct time and date on all receipts and reports. The time will periodically need to be changed to accommodate Daylight Savings Time, or initially if the console is installed in a time zone than the Eastern.See instructions to set the time or the date in the console.

MODE 37 - PRINT PROGRAMMED DATA REPORT

If a printer is installed, this printout will confirm data programmed into the console's memory, and that the dipswitches are set correctly. A printer can be ordered at any time to allow printing of MODE instructions, reports, and receipts.

MODE 38 - MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC RECEIPT PRINTING

The console can be set to automatically print a receipt when a sale is paid-out. Normally, a receipt for the last paid out sale (for the fueling position selected) is printed by the operator manually pressing the print button. If the console is programmed for auto-print operation, when a post-pay sale is finalized by the operator, or when a prepay or full service sale is completed, the console will automatically print a receipt.

To program the console for automatic, or back to manual receipt printing, follow these steps:

1. Select MODE 38.
2. Enter the desired setting:

00 = manual (default)
01 = automatic

3. Press CHNG button.

MODE 39 SET VALVE SLOWDOWN POINT (OF MECHANICAL PUMPS/DISPENSERS ONLY)

The valve slowdown point is designed to slow the delivery rate of fuel to a speed that allows the console to de-authorize a hose when it reaches the pre-set, or pre-paid amount. The amount set in MODE 39 (01 to 99, expressed in pennies) determines how far in advance the console will "turn off" the main valve, to slow the rate of fuel. This solves the problem of preset, or prepay sales over-running the predetermined amount only if slow and fast valves are present, and connected to the TMS system. If sales over-run, the slowdown point amount needs to be increased, typically by the amount of the over-run.

The console does not set the slowdown point of electronic pumps/dispensers.

To set, or change the valve slowdown point (of mechanical positions only), follow these steps:

1. Select MODE 39.
2. Enter a number between 01 and 99 (default = 15).
3. Press the CHNG button.

MODE 40 - CHANGE SHIFTS

MODE 40 resets the totals for present shift to zero, moves those totals to the previous shift, and if printer is connected with both green lights ON, prints the report.(See Instructions).

MODE 41 - MANAGER'S REPORT

The manager's report prints the completed sales that accumulated from the initial start-up, or the time the report was last printed and reset to zero. The manager's report can be printed, or reset to zero after the report prints at any time. This report cannot be accessed without a printer. (See Instructions).

MODES 42 AND 43 - CUSTOMIZE REPORT PRINTOUTS

The console stores in its memory, a wide variety of totals for the shift and manager's reports, that summarize the volume of fuels dispensed and their corresponding money amounts. The user can choose to print the information, in any order desired, or not at all. The console comes set from the factory to print all of the information ON ALL SHIFT REPORTS AND THE MANAGER'S REPORT.

To customize the reports, follow these steps:

1. Select the desired mode.

MODE 42 = SHIFT REPORTS
MODE 43 = MANAGER'S REPORT

2. Enter the desired single digit code numbers in the order they should appear on the customized reports (The digits will shift from right to left on the AMOUNT side of the display).

1 = STATION TOTALS
2 = TANK ACTIVITY
3 = GRADE ACTIVITY
4 = PUMP TOTALS
3. Press the CHNG button.

Example:
1. If the SHIFT REPORTS should print GRADE ACTIVITY (3), TANK ACTIVITY (2), then STATION TOTALS (1), but not PUMP TOTALS, MODE 42 would show "___321" in the AMOUNT side of the display.

2. If PUMP TOTALS (4) was the only information desired on the MANAGER'S REPORT, MODE 43 would show "_____4" in the right most position in the AMOUNT side of the display.

Again, the reports can print the above information in any order desired.

MODE 44 THROUGH 46 - NOT USED

MODE 47 - PRINTS LIST OF AVAILABLE TANK PRODUCT CODES

Use the list of available product codes to assign a name to the fuel dispensed. See instructions for MODES 21 THROUGH 26 to program the product codes to a tank.

MODE 48 AND 49 - NOT USED

MODE 50 - SPECIFY ACCUMULATING TOTALS TYPE BY FUELING POSITION

The ACCUMULATING TOTALS, displayed in MODES 51 through 54 and printed in MODE 57, are expressed in both money and volume amounts, and represent a grand total of all sales combined. These values are totaled by using one of two methods. The user can choose the console accumulating method (default), where the console maintains the totals by adding individual sale amounts, or the pump totalizer method where the console retrieves the hose totals stored at the pump/dispenser.

If the user chooses the console accumulating method, there are three ways the user can maintain the accumulating totals.

1. The user can enter the MECHANICAL TOTALIZER readings (see instructions for MODES 51 through 54), and avoid having to manually record the readings at the pump/dispenser. The console will add the sale amounts (money and volume) to the totals as sales are completed to approximate the readings on the mechanical totalizers.

NOTE:
On Mechanical fueling positions, the volume amounts are calculated by dividing the number of pulses received from the money pulser, by the price per gallon programmed in the console's memory. The readings on the totalizers should be read and verified against the console on a regular basis, and any differences should be corrected at the console.

2. The user can enter the ELECTRONIC TOTALIZER readings. The console will add the sale amounts (money and volume) to the readings input as sales are completed to match the readings on the electronic totalizers. Again, the user can avoid having to manually record the readings at the pump/dispenser.

3. The user can chose to not input any totals into the console's memory, allow the totals to start at zero, and accumulate.

If the user sets the console for the pump totalizer method, to read the pump/dispenser's electronic totalizers, the totals can not be reset, and the amounts displayed in MODES 51-54 and printed on the MODE 57 report are determined by the pump/dispenser.

To choose the console, or pump/dispenser accumulating method for each fueling position, follow these steps:

1. Select MODE 50.
2. Press and hold the desired fueling position on the PUMP SELECT keypad.
3. Enter the desired two-digit code:

00 = Console accumulating (DEFAULT)
01 = Pump/dispenser accumulating

4. Press the CHNG button.
5. Release the PUMP SELECT button
6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 as needed.

MODES 51 THROUGH 54 ENTER ACCUMULATING TOTALS

The console can display a limited amount of digits in the amount side of the window, so the accumulating totals have been divided.

MONEY:
MODE 51 displays the five LEAST SIGNIFICANT digits, while MODE 52 displays the five MOST SIGNIFICANT digits of the money total.

VOLUME:
MODE 53 displays the five LEAST SIGNIFICANT digits, and MODE 54 displays the volume total's five MOST SIGNIFICANT digits. The maximum money amount that the console can show is $9,999,999.990 (up to ten digits). MODE 52 shows $9,999,9 and MODE 51 shows 99.990. The maximum volume total the console can show is 9,999,999.900. MODE 54 would show 9,999,9 and MODE 53 would show 99.900.

The amounts on the totalizers can be noted, then entered into the console's memory in MODES 51 through 54, to show or print a money or volume total for each fueling position by product hose. Use the following examples.

Example:
Figure 10 shows the total that would be displayed in MODES 51 and 52 for the first hose (A) at fueling position 2, if the money totalizer read $5,864.32.

Totals display

Figure 10. (click to enlarge)

totals display

Figure 11. (click to enlarge)

Example:
Figure 11 shows the total that would be displayed in MODES 53 and 54 for the first hose (A) at fueling position 2, if the volume totalizer read 1324657.9.

REMEMBER:
The totalizer readings can be input only if the "console accumulating" method was chosen in MODE 50.

NOTE:
At the pump/dispenser, the money totalizer displays two digits, and the volume totalizer displays one digit to the right of the decimal point (in BLACK); the console shows three digits to the right of the decimal point. Enter zeros in the third, or the second and third places to the right of the decimal point when entering amounts from the totalizers into the console's memory.

To enter the totalizer readings, follow these steps:

1. Select the desired MODE:

51 = least significant $ TOTAL (last 5 digits)
52 = most significant $ TOTAL (first 5 digits)
53 = least significant VOLUME TOTAL (last 5)
54 = most significant VOLUME TOTAL (first 5)

2. Press and HOLD the desired pump select position.
3. Press and release the desired product (A, B, C, and D) button.
4. Use the DATA ENTRY keypad to enter the corresponding readings for the MODE, fueling position, and product hose selected.
5. Press CHNG button.
6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all product hoses at that fueling position.
7. Release pump select button.
8. Repeat steps 2 through 6 for each fueling position as needed.

HOW TO OPERATE THE CONSOLE

REMEMBER:
The console is shipped from the factory, with both prepaid and postpaid sales allowed, stacking is disallowed, single tier pricing structure, and correctly configured as ordered from the factory (8 or 16 fueling positions). The user can change these settings by setting the dipswitches as described here. Two Tier pricing implies that the Cash and Credit prices are different. Single tier states the cash and credit prices for fuel are the same.

A flashing light above a fueling position number indicates that a customer has picked up a hose and turned the handle on. The operator must authorize that fueling position before the customer can pump fuel. When authorized, the light for that fueling position changes to constantly on.

A flashing light below a fueling position number indicates a customer has hung a hose up, and the post-pay sale is waiting to be finalized. If a light under a fueling position number stays on, a present and a stacked sale (two sales at one position) are waiting to be finalized.

DEFINITIONS:

Prepay: a customer pays for a specific amount of fuel before pumping. the operator sets the fueling position for that amount, presses the PAID, then the AUTH button. The operator makes no further steps.

Preset: the operator sets a fueling position for an amount, and presses the AUTH button. The customer has not paid any money, so when the customer hangs the nozzle up, he must pay the operator before the sale can be made final.

Post-pay: the amount of fuel dispensed is entirely up to the customer. The operator authorizes the sale for fill-up.

Stacking: allows the operator to re-authorize a sale for a second customer while waiting for the first customer to pay.

Two-tier: the cash and credit prices per gallon are not the same.

Single tier: there is no difference between the cash and credit price per gallon.
