LC Fueling Systems - Introduction
LC Fueling Systems Overview
LC Fueling Systems (Delivery, EZConnect, FlightConnect) are automated data acquisition and management systems
designed for specific fueling applications. They acquire metrological and transaction data on fueling vehicles and
transmit the data to the office computers.
Main functions of an LC Fueling System include:
• Delivery and transaction data acquisition
• Database management
• Communication configuration and management
• Delivery and transaction data transfer

LC Fueling System Components
Metering System
Typically mounted to the back or side of a delivery
vehicle, the metering system accurately measures,
stops and starts the flow, and preserves the purity of
the metered product. A Liquid Controls metering system
can include the meter, LCR electronic register, strainer,
ETVC (temperature compensation) probe, air eliminator,
and control valve.
lc fUELING Software
Delivery, EZConnect, FlightConnect Fueling System
software can run on a DMS in-cab computer, in
conjunction with a LectroCount LCR-II electronic register.
The DMS is an in-cab computer with a heavy-duty lap
pad interface. The LCR-II compiles metrological data
during custody transfers and is Weights & Measures
approved. FlightConnect Fueling System software can
also run on a LectroCount LCR 600 electronic register.
The LCR 600 also compiles metrological data during
custody transfers and is Weights & Measures approved.

DMS and LectroCount LCR-II
LC fueling systems can transfer data via a serial output
to a device such as a Wifi adaptor, RF transceiver, or
cell modem. Cell modems enable long distance wireless
data transmissions between LCR 600s and DMSs in
the field and computers in the office. Cell modems and
service contracts must be purchased separately from a
cellular service provider. RF transceivers are designed
for short, line-of-sight wireless transmissions of data.
Serial Wifi adaptors can be adapted to an existing Wifi
network within the customer framework. Wifi range
is typically very limited, but can be used if the Fueling
System uploads and downloads data from a location that
is Wifi -enabled on the users network. Liquid Controls
does not provide Wifi adaptors, however your distributor
or IT Professional should be able to recommend one. A
USB Flash Memory Device can also be used to transfer
data between the DMS and computers in the office.

Introduction - Transaction Data Flow
Transaction Data Flow
DMS & LCR 600 Fueling Software (dATA cAPTURE)
After each delivery, the LC fueling software compiles the metrological,
transaction, customer, driver, and product data into transaction
files (.trn). The transaction files are then sent to the office PC either
wirelessly (Wifi , RF or cellular), or they are downloaded to a USB
memory device (DMS only).
db mANAGER (Data Transfer)
Delivery
FlightConnect

Compxxx.trn
If the transaction files are sent wirelessly (Wifi , RF, or cellular) using
the Send Transactions to Office command, DBManager receives
the transaction files (.trn) and notifies the Office Read program that
the files have been received. Transmissions can be setup to be sent
automatically to the office.
Office Read (File Conversion)
The office read software (Delivery Read, FlightConnect Read, or
EZConnect Read) converts the transaction files (.trn) received from
the fueling software into a .csv (text) or .xml file format (Delivery Read
typically converts .trn files into text files with a .dat extension). These
formats can be used for import into most third-party software programs
and spreadsheet applications.

Back Office Software
Back office software refers to any third-party software used for daily

USB Memory Stick Data Transmission (DMS only)
The DMS can transmit files via a USB memory device. If the transaction files
are sent via USB memory device, when a shift is finished, the fuelers download
the transaction files created during their shift using the Send Transactions to
Office command and return the USB device to the office. DBManager is not
required for USB data transfers. If the files are transferred via a USB memory
device, they must be copied from the USB device and pasted into the C:/DMS
folder. From there, Read.exe can convert them into text or XML files.

Database Data Flow - Introduction
Database Data Flow
dBManager (Database Manager)
DBManager serves as a file server/database manager, identifying changes to the master
database of the fueling system (multiple fueling systems if required) and maintaining the
database of the units (DMS and/or LCR 600) in the network. It determines which master
database records have been added, edited, or deleted and adjusts the databases on
each unit (DMS and/or LCR 600) in the network to match the master database.
The DMS Delivery
Fueling System does not
support database data flow
from the DMS to the office.
Office Edit
The office edit software (FlightConnect Edit or EZConnect Edit) provides an interface where users can add, delete
and edit records in the fueling system master database. It also allows the user to easily import and export files into
and out of the database. The office edit software also allows users to validate or reject any records added or edited by
the units in the network for the master database.
Office Read
When the office read software (FlightConnect Read, or EZConnect Read) receives a transaction file, it converts any
records added or edited by the fueler into separate edit file (Editxxx.trn). Office read sends the edit file to the office
edit software where it must be validated for the master database or rejected
DMS Fueling Software
DMS FlightConnect and EZConnect fueling software allow fuelers to edit or add
records, such as new customers and other parameters, while they are in the field.
These new records are included in the transaction file and sent to the office where
the office read software separates them from the transaction data and send them the
office edit software for validation or rejection.

configured to match the communication settings of the DMSs, LCR 600s, and wireless transmission devices in the LC
fueling network. LCP Setup includes a Test tab, where connection between the computer and a specific DMS or LCR
600 (or another computer) can be tested.
LCP Setup Configuration
Retries:
After an initial failed attempt, the number of attempts the computer
will try to make a connection with the wireless communication network
before timing out. (1 is the default value)

is sent to a wireless network, before timing out. (2000 is the default
value).
IP Config:
Clicking the button activates IP Configuration settings.
Serial Config:
Clicking the button activates Serial Configuration settings.
Local IP Port:
A port where TCP/IP communication can be heard. To get around
existing firewalls, your office PC will need to be configured so that TCP
data is accepted at this port number.
