Introduction
The purpose of this manual is to guide installers, operators and technicians through programming and troubleshooting
the T5 series console, so that it’s configured based on a site’s specific needs. The Fuel Management Systems (FMS)
application within the T5 Series consoles tie together the monitoring and alarm capabilities of preceding automatic tank
gauges with advanced technologies to supply tank and level data more accurately and efficiently. This manual is also
designed to introduce technicians to the optional LCD Graphical User Interface, which is used as an input device to
program system configuration and maintain all applications from the front panel of the console as well as through a web
interface. Overall safety issues, troubleshooting information, warranty, service and return policies, as defined in this
manual, must be followed.
FMS Functions
The main function of the Fuel Management System is to represent levels for inventory and tank leak testing by monitoring
probe inputs and performing calculations based on those inputs. Line leak sensing devices also provide input signals.
Results from these calculations may be used for system monitoring and/or regulatory compliance. The console, in
conjunction with external fuel system equipment, may provide positive system shutdown, based on programmed rules.
Sites that utilize Fuel Management Systems have the ability to monitor and perform:
• Tank Inventory Level Information
• Tank Leak Detection
• Sensor Configuration
• Line Leak Detection
• Sump Leak Detection
• Compliance Line and Leak Testing
FMS also allows sites to generate and print the following reports:
• Inventory Reports
• Delivery Reports
• Tank Test Results
• SCALD Testing Reports
• Regulatory Reports
• Sensor Reports

General
After the Fuel Management System has been installed, typically your interaction with the system will be from the LCD
display, on-board printer; or using the Web Browser software to program and monitor the console remotely. Remote
operation can be performed from a PC, either attached directly or through a network connection to the console. All of the
features of the console are available through these input / output devices. Also, the console may be set up to generate and
send automated reports to e-mail accounts or print reports at a programmed time.
Occasionally you may need console information, such as model and serial numbers. The model number is located on the
face of the console. The serial number is located on a small plaque placed on the bottom of the left panel. This label also
shows the model number, voltage, manufacturer’s address, a warning symbol and the unit’s voltage specifications.
User Interfaces (UI)
LCD Touch Screen Interface
An LCD touch screen is included with the T5 (TS-608) consoles and can be ordered as an option on the T550
(TS-EMS) and T5000. The “D” designation in the console’s model number indicates that a LCD display was ordered
with the system. This bright display, with an adjustable contrast setting, allows easy viewing in any lighting condition. A
programmable screen saver can be selected to automatically turn the backlight off after 5 minutes. This extends the life of
the display. To enable or disable the sleep mode select: Menu > Preferences > Toggle Sleep Mode
Touch Screen Calibration
During initial setup, it will be necessary to calibrate the touch screen function of the LCD display. Calibrating the
touch screen will enable the console to better recognize the area that you “touch,” so that you can accurately enter in
information. To calibrate the touch-screen function of the display, you must first access the calibration application.
1. From the HOME MENU, press MAIN MENU > DOWN > TOOLS > TOUCHSCREEN CALIBRATION.
2. The console will ask if you are sure that you want to proceed, answer Yes.
3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the calibration process.
Web Browser Interface
Each T5 Series console includes an Ethernet port and programming options to eliminate the need for an Ethernet port
server or a external / internal modem (although both options are still available). The advantages to using an Ethernet
connection are: faster connection speeds, quicker data transfer rates, less data errors or quicker recovery of data when
errors occur, and it does not require extra software or drivers to be loaded. This means that console parameters can be
modified and that status/alarm reports can be printed from virtually anywhere.
Access Control
There are three access levels programmed into the console’s operating system: Guest, User, and Administrator. Each
level will allow an operator to access different features or change specific settings on the console. This security feature
prevents unauthorized tampering of console configurations.
The User Role
icon will appear in the upper-right corner of the LCD display as one of the following:
• ONE BAR filled operates at the GUEST level. Guests are allowed to access menu options and check the system
configurations. The GUEST will not be able to modify the console settings.
• TWO BARS filled operates at the USER level. Users are given limited access to certain areas of the operating
system to make changes or print reports.
• THREE BARS filled operates as an ADMINISTRATOR. This level grants access to all areas of programming and
setup configuration. The administrator privilege is usually assigned to the designated technician of a site.
5
Password Login
1. Press the User Roll icon
2. Enter Password for the desired level as described in the Access Control section on page 5.
Default passwords are as follows:
Guest: guest
User: user

Tapping twice on the User Role Icon
will reset to guest level access.
Modifying Passwords
For initial settings and continuous security purposes, the console will allow you to change any password used for
accessing console functions. When changing passwords, make note of the password and keep it in a secure, memorable
place. The password you choose must be at least two characters long with a maximum of 16 characters — spaces and
special characters are allowed as part of your password.
The Administrator status is required to change passwords.
From the touch screen display, changing access passwords is done by navigating through menus to modify a password.
1. When the console is powered up, press the Main Menu button
.
2. Press the Configuration Application button.
3. Press Passwords in the application window, and then press the corresponding button to change the password for that

There are many ways to configure a computer to
communicate with a T5 series console. These factors are
dependent on the user’s computer knowledge and how the
computer is currently configured.
To determine which method is best for your site, read the
instructions in the following section carefully. Make detailed
notes on the current configuration of the TCP / IP settings on
the PC you are using. Read both the “Obtain an IP address
automatically” and the “Use the following IP address”
methods before making a choice between the two.
8

Connecting a PC to the T5 series RS-232 Port
COMM 1 is used to connect a PC or laptop with the console via the Web Browser Interface for programming or remote
monitoring. COMM 2 is used only for VRM to retrieve ullage data from an external ATG.
If serial connection to Point-Of-Sale (POS) is desired for report retrieval, then we suggest using COMM 1 in Veeder-Root
(VR) mode.
Note: The PC or laptop will recognize this serial connection as a network connection and will not allow the use of a Local
Area Connection simultaneously. While it is not necessary to disconnect the Local Area Connection to connect
using the Serial port, it will be necessary to disconnect the Serial Connection through the computers operating
system in order to use the Local Area Connection again.
Connecting a PC to the T5 series COMM 1 Port
1. Using a female to male DB-9 straight serial cable, connect the female end of the serial cable to the serial

Configuration Menu
Configuration Options
Using the options in this menu, you can change:
• Console passwords • COM 1 parameters
• Network parameters
• Modem Parameters
• Current time and date and set an accurate time zone.
For instructions on setting passwords, see pages 5 & 6: Access Control.
Once the console has been powered up, navigate the console by pressing the screen on the appropriate button.
1. Starting at the Home Status Menu, press the Main Menu button.
2. Select the Configuration button.
3. Select from the options in the Network Parameters section that follows to view or change console configuration settings.
Network Parameters
To communicate with your network equipment (i.e. router, switch, hub, etc.) you will need to modify the network
parameters.
IP Address Settings:
IP Address – This is a logical (electronic) address, like a street address, that the console uses to route information.
This address will have to match your network, if connected to a network, in order to ‘talk’ to a remote
communication device, or your PC.
Network Mask – Masking is a way to diversify the use of multiple subnets. The mask must match that of the network the
console is connected to. Masks are used in networking to create ‘sub-networks’ within a whole, like slicing
and apple. You have separate slices that may be in different locations, but they are still from the same apple.
Administrators use this to make separate networks, to maximize bandwidth or capacity of medium resources
(cables or fiber). Therefore, when your network uses static IP addressing (assigned by an administrator),
this mask must match the Network Mask of the router port that it is attached to. If the network uses a DHCP
server (automatically assigns IP addresses) then the mask should meet the specifications set by your
administrator.
Gateway – The Gateway is the logical address to the nearest router port, commonly the one that is connected to the
console. Consult your administrator for details on this and other network parameters.
DNS Server Address:
Preferred DNS Server / Alternate DNS Server – The domain name system (DNS) is the way that internet domain names
are located and translated into Internet Protocol addresses. A domain name is a meaningful and easy-to-remember tag for
an internet address (used for e-mail functions).
Protocol Settings – Veeder Root, port 8001: Port used to connect to a network that uses VR Protocol
– Web Server Secondary Port, 10001: Port used for network as port to forward
Date / Time Set
To set the date and time, click the button that corresponds with your selection and then select the correct option from the
list. If your choice does not appear on the first screen, use the up and down navigation buttons to scroll through more
options. When finished, confirm your selection by pressing the checkmark or OK button. It is important to enter the date
and time information correctly to ensure reports and alarms can be accurately tracked.
16
Time Zone
Set the Time Zone according to your geographical location. If your choice does not appear on the first screen, use the
navigation up and down buttons to scroll through more options. When finished, confirm your selection by pressing the
check-mark or OK button.

Web Browser Interface
Navigating Applications Remotely
The Web Browser Interface offers several ways to navigate through applications:
• Easy-to-read web pages that use hyperlink text (words or characters that, when clicked, take you to another page) to
move through the menus,
• Text and drop boxes and buttons allow inputs to be made efficiently,
• On-screen prompts automatically pop-up instructions to verify each step.
Not all application functions, like Network Configurations, are available at all levels. To access these options, you need to
be logged in at a high enough User Role.
Accessing the Web Browser Interface
1. To access the console using a computer, open a web browsing application.
2. Type the IP address (the default IP Address is 192.168.168.168) into the address bar of the browser window. To
access the console using a remote PC, setup communications per Section 2 of this manual. When using a PC to
access console applications through a direct or network connection, a T5 console incorporates a XML (eXtensible
Markup Language) based access method. If the console is equipped with an optional LCD screen, the connection
settings may be modified using the touch screen function of the console.
Making Changes to System Parameters
1. To make any changes on a settings page, click Edit.
2. Once the preferred selections have been altered, click the confirmation option Yes in the yellow shaded area near the
top of the window.
3. At this point, the system may prompt for a password.
Password Prompting
After changes have been made to the consoles parameters, if the appropriate access level has not been entered, the
system will prompt for a password.
If you haven’t obtained the appropriate access level, you will be prompted “Error: Insufficient privileges” in a red shaded
area, near the top of the window.
1. Type the password for the access level required to save changes into the text-box and click Apply.
2. You will then be prompted again to save your changes; click the confirmation option Yes in the yellow shaded area
near the top of the window.
When you’ve finished configuring your programming options, keep system security in mind and, to prevent unauthorized
personnel from gaining access to console configurations, lower the access level to Guest. To do this from the Web
Browser Interface, click T550 System - Guest access level. Notice that the User Role changes back to Guest.
Setup
The programming options for the Web Browser Interface are identical to the LCD interface; however, they are represented
differently due to their respective graphical interfaces. Use the programming tables in Section 3 as a reference in
programming your console with a web browser.
33
Backup Setup Files
Download
Backup allows you to download the setup file and store it on any PC connected to the console. This file can be uploaded
to the console to recover lost settings or copy settings from one site to another.
1. Open a web browsing application, type the IP address (the default IP address is 192.168.168.168) into the address bar
of the browser window.
2. The console will navigate to the Home Status page, indicated by the word Status displayed in the header.
3. Left-Click once on Setup.
4. To download a site configuration, click Download. A File Download dialog box may appear, and, if it does, select Save
to open an explorer window.
5. Select a location to save the configuration file.
Then, type the File Name you want to create. Use
something that identifies the file with the site and
represents the date saved. Click Save.
34
The file is now stored in the location of your
choice and ready to upload when necessary. It is
recommended that a backup copy of this file is
created and stored on another medium, to ensure
that the file’s integrity is maintained.
Upload
When required, the backup configuration file will need to be reloaded onto the console to restore a previous setup. When
uploading, it is important to remember that network parameters may be affected by the change, rendering it unreachable
from a remote location. If the downloaded file contains an IP address different from the one currently in use, someone will
need to locally reprogram the correct address into the console in order to communicate remotely.
1. Open a web browsing application, type the IP address (the default IP Address is 192.168.168.168) into the address bar
of the browser window. The console will navigate to the Home Status page, indicated by the word Status in the header.
2. Left-click once on Setup.
3. To upload a configuration file, click Upload on the Setup page. At this point, the console may prompt for a password if
the proper access level has not been obtained.
4. An Upload Confirmation window will open. Left-Click Browse to locate the correct file. Click on the file name, and then
click Open.
This process may take a few moments for the console to apply the settings and reboot. To indicate that the update was
successful, you will see this notification window.

Leak Testing
All T5 series console models meet (or exceed) the
requirements of the U.S. Environment Protection Agency
(EPA / 530 / UST-90 / 006 test protocol) for Automatic Tank
Gauging Systems (ATGS) for Monthly Monitoring for 0.2
gal/hr leaks of Underground Storage Tanks. The system(s)
also meet (or exceed) the requirements for Annual Tank
Tightness Testing for 0.1 gal / hr leaks of the National Work
Group on Leak Detection Evaluations (NWGLDE). For the
most recent third-party documentation, visit the NWGLDE
website at www.nwglde.org.
Overview
Tank and / or line leak tests are performed on a regular
schedule according to test type. In addition, leak tests
can be started manually from the console display or web
interface.
To obtain valid results, leak tests should be started when
conditions in the tank or line are stable and will remain
stable throughout the test (such as during non-business
hours). A test will not and can not pass if tank and/or line
conditions are disturbed. Deliveries and dispenses will
cause thermal instability or product turbulence, which
will interfere with tank leak testing. These disturbances
may cause the test to report a failure, an increased
result, or cause the test to run for 8 hours and report an
indeterminate test result. Wait at least 6 hours after a
product delivery, and 2 hours after product dispensing
stops, before forcing Tank Leak Tests.
Generally, tank tests take about 4 to 5 hours to finish (the
exact time required depends on the type of test being
performed, size of the tank, volume of product in the tank,
and the product temperature).
The best time to test the tank integrity (leak test) is when it
is full or nearly full. Regulatory requirements in some areas
insist on having a certain percentage of product in the tank
before a test can be considered valid and in compliance.
Try to run tests on tanks that are 50% full or greater.
SCALD leak tests can run only when tank levels are at or
above the set “Qualify” value.
36
Tank Leak Tests – Type and Frequency
Tank Testing software (option T) includes Static and
SCALD tank testing. Both tests comply with federal, state
and local codes and regulatory agencies, which specify
how often to run these tests. Consult and comply with
these rules and regulations.
Caution
It is the tank owner’s obligation to
comply with the procedures and the
reporting requirements of federal, state
and local regulations. You are legally
bound to follow these regulations
explicitly. When policies conflict with
this manual, follow the regulations.
Static Tank Testing Requirements
•Print a leak test Estimate Report.
•There must be enough quiet time to finish the test
with no product dispensing.
Note: A 10,000 gallon tank requires about 5 or 6 hours to
finish.
•Wait at least 6 hours after a product delivery – or
– 2 hours after a product dispense. Active tanks
without Stage II vapor recovery may require longer
stabilization periods.
FFS does not recommend running both Line & Tank
Leak Tests at the same time.
When to Force Static Tank Leak Tests
•To comply with federal, state, and local regulatory
agency requirements.
•To comply with the policy and procedures of your site.
•Whenever a leak detection sensor alarms — this
is especially important when a discriminating
BriteSensor detects a liquid / vapor hydrocarbon
(product). A failed leak test and BriteSensor product
alarm indicates a tank or product-line leak.
Note: Standard / product alarms may be caused by
motor oil runoff during heavy rains, or because a
BriteSensor has detected a product leak from a
tank. Take a sample from the area for chemical
analysis.

Tank Leak Test Results
Leak test results are either increase, passed, failed, or
indeterminate.
Reasons Why Tank Leak Tests Fail
• The tank leaks.
• Temperature instability – temperature variations of the
product within the tank after a delivery is the most common source of interference and failed leak tests / false
alarms (a failure to detect real leaks can also result).
Look at the hourly temperature data on the leak test report and retest if the variation is more than a few tenths
of a degree.
• Large changes in product temperature from the start to
the end of the test.
• Water Level changes during the test.
• Evaporation and loss of product through the vent
stack will look exactly like a leak. Evaporation can be
a problem during high seasonal temperatures and/or
high winds, and when liquid level exposes the greatest
surface area for evaporation (half full tanks are worse).
Seasonal variations in product composition, size of the
tank (larger is worse), and tank vent configuration are
also evaporation factors.
• Tank Deformation -- the tank changes shape after a
large product delivery.
• Tidal Action – in coastal communities, groundwater levels maybe be affected, and, as a result, may deform the
tank. During certain times of the day, the tide changes
inconsistently.
• Tank Cross-Talk – level changes in one tank causes a
level change in an adjacent tank or compartment.
• Product is being dispensed during a test.
Steps to Take When a Tank Leak Test Fails
Leak tests do occasionally fail and a single failed leak test
should not be a cause for great concern. Remember, if the
confidence level of the test is 99%, there is a 1% chance
that the system will give a false answer.
Caution
Don’t excavate / repair a tank because
of a single failed leak test. Reference
your site policy and procedures plan.
If you fail a leak test, review the leak test report to
determine if there is an obvious source of interference with
the test (see the Causes of Leak Test Failures section for
an example of a Tank Leak Test Report). If such a source
of interference is identified, retest the tank as soon as
possible. Retest the tank to validate or invalidate the first
test result if no source of interference can be identified. If
necessary, run several tests.
If repeated tests indicate a leak and no obvious source
of interference is found, then immediately have the
tank precision / pressure tested. If the precision test
confirms the presence of a leak, then the tank owner
must take corrective action in accordance with federal,
state and local regulations.
38
Warning
The owner of the tank is legally
obligated to comply with reporting and
procedural requirements of federal,
state and local regulations. These
must be followed explicitly. Serious
legal, health and safety hazards could
result from not taking immediate and
proper action. If codes and regulations
conflict with this manual, follow the
regulations set by governing agencies.
SCALD Tank Leak Tests
SCALD (Statistical Continuous Automatic Leak Detection)
is optional on Franklin Fueling Systems tank gauges. It
runs 24 hours a day and is used to perform 0.2 gph tests
on tanks that are always in use.
SCALD works by collecting Quiet Intervals (QIs) in
between dispensing. A QI is obtained when a thermally
stable tank is idle for 20 minutes with no dispensing, no
deliveries and no other movement of the probe floats.
Once four QIs are collected, the Automatic Tank Gauge
(ATG) will analyze the data and either Pass, Fail, Increase
or discard that test because the data is not statistically
sound. Four QIs can be collected over a period of several
days or weeks.
• If the result is a Pass, then a test result of Pass will be
generated.
• If the result is Fail or Increase, then another test will be
run to ensure that this is not a false alarm. Three Failed
or Increase tests in a row will produce a test result of
Failed or Increase.
• If the data is not statistically sound, then the test is discarded. No new test result will be generated and SCALD
will continue to run. The fact that a result was discarded
is recorded and can be seen in the Status number that
accompanies the next generated test result.
• On rare occasions certain conditions can arise that can
prevent SCALD from getting enough QIs to complete a test.
Reasons Why SCALD Tank Tests may Fail
•Temperature
• If a site receives deliveries where the temperature of the
fuel being delivered is several degrees different then the
fuel in the tank, then SCALD will not be able to collect
QIs due to thermal instability. The temperature of the
fuel can not change more than .01°F during a 20 min QI.
• If a pump control relay is stuck closed and the pump is
running all of the time, the temperature in the tank can
be much higher than the other tanks. Due to this high
temperature and the fact that the pump is running and
causing turbulence in the tank, no QIs will be collected.
•No Quiet Time
• SCALD needs four 20 minute QIs in order to complete
a test. These QIs are normally found in the early morning hours. If a site is so busy that there are no 20 minute
periods of no dispensing, then SCALD will not be able to
complete a test.
TS-LS500 Auto Learn Line Leak Testing
Overview
A 0.2 gph and a 0.1 gph test line leak tests can be started
from the console. Some jurisdictions recommend that a
0.1 gph annual precision line leak test be run yearly.
The 0.2 gph test runs automatically on a daily basis.
The coarse 3 gph line test runs automatically after every
dispense. State and local regulations may require more
frequent tests and inspections. Make sure your site
personnel are aware of all of the issues and requirements
comply with these regulations.
It is the tank owner’s obligation to
comply with the procedures and the
reporting requirements of federal,
state and local regulations. You are
legally bound to follow these explicitly.
Where they conflict with this manual,
follow the regulations.
Line Leak Test Requirements
•Create adequate quiet time – Prevent and stop all
dispensing, on the line to be tested, before and
during a test (bag or tape poly over dispenser and
dispenser lever).
•GPH precision tests normally need 4 hours of quiet
time (where no dispensing occurs) before the test is
started. Usually the test takes 13 minutes to complete.
•0.2 GPH monthly tests normally need 13 minutes to 4
hours of quiet time to finish.
When to Force Line Leak Tests
•To comply with Federal, State, and local Regulatory
Agency requirements.
•To comply with the policy and procedures of your site.
•When a leak detection sensor alarms – per policy
and procedures at your site.
Manually Forcing Line Leak Tests
Lines MUST be calibrated and enabled before forcing
leak tests.
1. To force a Line Leak test, press the FMS button in
the Application Window.
2. Touch the screen to highlight the desired test,
then press the check-mark to begin the testing
process.
Caution
Line Leak Test Results
Line Leak test results are either increase, passed, failed,
or indeterminate.
Reasons Why Line Leak Tests Fail
•The tank leaks.
•Temperature instability – temperature variations
of the product within the line is the most common
source of interference and failed leak tests / false
alarms (a failure to detect real leaks can also result).
Look at the hourly temperature data on the leak test
report and retest if the variation is more than a few
tenths of a degree.
•Large changes in product temperature from the start
to the end of the test.
•Water Level changes from the start to the end of the
test.
•Product is being dispensed during a test.
Steps to Take When a Line Leak Test Fails
Leak tests do occasionally fail. A single failed leak test
should not be a cause for great concern – don’t panic.
Caution
Don’t excavate / repair a line because
of a single failed leak test. Reference
your site policy and procedures plan.
If a site fails a leak test, review the leak test report to
determine if there is an obvious source of interference with
the test. If such a source of interference is identified, retest
the tank as soon as possible. (Retest the tank to check the
first test result if no source of interference can be identified.
If necessary, run several tests.)
If repeated tests indicate a leak and no obvious source of
interference is found, then immediately have the tank
precision / pressure tested. If the precision test confirms
the presence of a leak then the tank owner must take
corrective action in accordance with federal, state and
local regulations.

By selecting Q next to the Fueling Point, the gauge will automatically Query the D-Box and fill in the information. For
the Query function to work, all equipment must be installed and connected, and all positions must be set to 0.
After hitting the Query button, you will be prompted that programming for that fueling point will be overwritten. Select OK.
You will then be prompted to dispense a small amount of product (approximately 0.03 gal.) Follow the on-screen instructions.
The positions will then be automatically entered into the programming. If other fueling points are identical, simply hit the
Copy button © and the positions will fill in. There is no need to re-query and dispense fuel if fueling points are identical.
Rules
Rules can be used to generate the DIM reports.
The following is an example of generating a daily reconciliation report:
In the example above, two rules are used. The first rule Rule-Reconciliation Report is used to define the start time of the
reconciliation period. In this case , 5:00 a.m. The two actions are used to 1) Open a new period, which closes the last one,
and 2) Generate a Summation Report. When a summation report is generated, it is stored, but not printed.
To print the report, a second rule is established. In the example, this is the Print Reconciliation Report rule. A DIM
reconciliation report can be printed per the customer’s request.
45
Dual DIM Installation
Some sites and dispenser configurations may require
the use of a second DIM module that would be installed
externally to perform reconciliation or VRM. This section
outlines the special installation steps required to install a
second TS-DIM on a T5 series console.
Hardware Configuration
In order for the external TS-DIM module to communicate
properly with the T5 series console a few jumpers will
need to be adjusted. To make these adjustments the cover
of the TS-DIM will need to be removed to access the
jumpers.

The internal DIM module in the T5 series console will
always be addressed as zero. By default an external TSDIM will come shipped with an address of zero also. For
these two devices to exist on the same system the external
TS-DIM will need to have it’s address changed to one. Set
the external TS-DIM’s address to one by placing a jumper
on row 6 of W2.
46
Communication Settings
Once the external DIM has been addressed properly
the communications for the Host 1 port will need to
be changed to match the internal DIM communication
settings. The internal DIM’s communication settings
are: 9600 Baud Rate, 8 Data Bits, No Parity. To
properly configure the communication setting
on the external DIM you will need to place
jumpers on the following rows 1, 2, and 3 of W1.

Wiring the TS-DIM to a T5 Series Console
Turn off the main power source / all
power sources that terminate in the
Warning
console before working on or servicing
this equipment. Failure to do so will
create a lethal electrical shock hazard.
1. Make sure all power to the T5 Series console is
turned off at the power source.
2. Locate the Communication Ports on the T5 series
console.
3. Terminate the wires as follows:
a. Wire 485A to Terminal 485A
b. Wire 485B to Terminal 485B
c. Wire S.RTN to Terminal GND
Note: There may be RS-485 interface wires already
connected to the terminals. In this case, remove
the wire(s) and splice them with the appropriate TSDIM wire. Reinsert these into the correct terminal
and tighten the screw.
TS-TPI Overview and Functionality
Tank fuel management can be achieved using a Franklin
Fueling Systems T5 Series Fuel Management Systems
and an FE Petro Turbine Pump Controllers (STP-SC1,
EcoVFC or MagVFC). Refer to Bulletin TB1010-04 for
connecting to an STP-SCIII controller.
Tank Fuel Management looks at percent (%) full volume of
individual tanks and gives priority to the submersible pump
needed to control tank inventories. Additional features and
benefits of the Tank Fuel Management system include:
• Tank Overfill Protection
• Dry Tank Indication
• Automatic pump controller reset
• Clogged Intake Indication
• Pump in Water Indication.
Tank Fuel Management can be used to keep tank levels
similar, eliminating the need for a syphon system. Tank
Fuel Management can also be used to pump down one
tank to a user defined level, and then switch over to the
other tank for fuel dispensing. In either case, there must be
at least one submersible pump in each tank.
that tank, priority will switch to the pump in the other
tank. If both tanks are below RESERVE level the ATG
will automatically use Leveling until tanks receive a
delivery of fuel or reach Dry Tank Indication Levels.
Note: In both Leveling and Priority modes, the ATG
chooses which pump will take priority. Because
of this, the pump controllers should be set to
Master-Slave, not Master-Slave / Alternating
Circuit. If the pump controllers are configured for
Master-Slave / Alternating Circuit, the pumps will
not turn on in a predicable manner. Tanks that
are in Leveling or Priority mode are monitored
and tested as separate tanks and should NOT be
siphoned.
Other T5 series TS-TPI functions include;
Overfill Protection: when the LEVELING and PRIORITY
modes are chosen, if a tank level rises above its high level
limit, that tank will become the priority tank, regardless
of what leveling mode is active. If the level in that tank
continues to rise and reaches the high-high limit, all
pumps in the group will be shutdown, except for the pump
in the tank with the high-high alarm. In-line check valves
used to prevent overfill conditions in manifolded tanks,
such as those used with Red Jacket submersible pumps,
are not required or recommended.
Note: The Overfill Protection feature will work correctly
ONLY when the high and high-high level alarms
are programmed correctly. Failure to set high
and high-high level alarms will result in a loss of
overfill protection.
TS-TPI Overview
The TS-TPI programming function allows the controllers
to be “grouped” together, and be programmed for specific
fuel management options. These options are NONE,
LEVELING, and PRIORITY
• NONE means NO level management for the selected
pump group. (Default setting.)
• LEVELING mode seeks to maintain an equal level
of fuel in each tank by placing pump controllers
associated with the tank containing the most amount
of fuel to priority. This will force the pump installed in
the tank with the highest level of fuel to activate with
the next activation of a dispenser switch.
Note: Leveling is achieved using level as percentage
volume full. The tank gauge will look at levels
in a tank as % full, and will attempt to keep that
number equal between all tanks in LEVELING
mode. If tanks are different sizes, the levels in
tanks may not be equal, but the % full for each
tank will be similar.
• PRIORITY mode tries to pump down one tank before
switching to other tank(s). After choosing PRIORITY
mode, the technician will program the RESERVE
setting. The reserve level is input as a percent full in
the tank. When the RESERVE level is reached for
Dry Tank Indication: TS-TPI programming enables the
user to enter a PUMP HEIGHT measurement (default is
5"). This is the distance between the bottom of the pump
motor to the bottom of the tank. When the pump controller
indicates an Under - Load condition and the product
level is within 3" of the programmed PUMP HEIGHT
measurement, an alarm on the tank gauge will indicate
DRY TANK. When a delivery is made, the pump controller
will automatically be reset.
Note: Because the TS-TPI resets the pump controller
after a delivery is made, the Auto Restart feature
on the pump controller must be disabled.
Clogged Intake Indication: The combination of a pump
controller Under-load condition and a tank level that is
at least 3" greater than the programmed PUMP HEIGHT
measurement will cause a BLOCKED INTAKE indication.
Because the tank gauge is able to confirm that there is
fuel in the tank, this alarm indicates a motor intake that is
being blocked by a foreign object.
Pump in Water Indication: If the tank gauge records
a water level that is within 2” of the programmed PUMP
HEIGHT measurement, the pump will become disabled.
The tank gauge will indicate a PUMP IN WATER alarm.

Specified line is not configured,
therefore line leak test will not be
performed.
If a 2-Wire sensor is used on a 3-wire module ensure that the
red / pwr terminal is not used. If a 3-wire sensor is used, disconnect
wires and see if alarm clears. If alarm clears inspect shorts in wiring.
If alarm stays at PWR short replace module. Contact Franklin Fueling
Systems’ Technical Services Dept. for support.
Inspect location for presence of liquid. In the case of a leak, follow
site policy procedures. If no liquid is present, and alarm still exists,
sensor may be tripped on error. Check wiring continuity from sensor
to console. Test sensor at console, trip sensor on purpose. Verify
console terminal wiring. If issue still exists, inspect wiring to probe. If
the condition still exists, contact Franklin Fueling Systems’ Technical
Services for support.
Inspect location for presence of liquid. In the case of a leak, follow
site policy procedures. If in alarm with no liquid is present, sensor
may be tripped on error. Check wiring continuity from sensor to
console.
Verify correct wiring and re-make the connections. Verify sensor type.
Recommended Actions
Verify that no pertinent alarm conditions have been reoccurring.
Ensure that there is enough time to pass the test.
Verify that no pertinent alarm conditions have been reoccurring.
Ensure proper seating pressure. If Firmware revision is older
than 1.7.4.5535, upgrade to make use of the Statistical Line Leak
Detection enhancement.
Check for continuous pump on conditions that could be caused by a
sticky handle switch or relay.
Purge all air from the line starting at the furthest dispenser and
working in toward the STP. Verify tightness of lines and investigate
other sources for air infiltration.
Inspect all sumps for product. Use a pressure gauge to test line
pressure during dispensing. See “LS500 Auto Learn Line Leak
Detection Installation & User’s Guide” FFS 000-2145. Contact
Franklin Fueling Systems’ Technical Services Dept. for support.
Check for voltage to the AC-Input module. If issue still exists contact
