Product Description

Vapor Recovery Monitoring

The Vapor Recovery Monitoring System (VRM) consists of the following components.

Vapor Recovery Monitoring Application

The Vapor Recovery application uses data from the Vapor Flow

Meters (VFMs) and the Vapor Pressure Sensor (VPS) to perform assessments on the site’s vapor recovery system. VRM is an optional application on the console and may be accompanied by

Fuel Management System or Secondary Containment Monitoring.

Console

The Console consist of either the TS-550 or TS-5000 Fuel

Management Systems or the TS-EMS, Environmental Monitoring

System. The console options for ISD monitoring will always include the VRM application and at least one of each of the following components. (See Figure 1)

• AC Input Module

• Relay/10A Relay Module

• Probe Module

• 4-20mA Module

• Dispenser Interface Module

• Printer

• Touchscreen

Vapor Flow Meter

The Vapor Flow Meter (TS-VFM) is a volume measuring meter. When a mixture of air and gasoline vapors are returned from an automobile’s gasoline tank to the underground storage tank during a dispense, the vapors are measured and analyzed. The console uses these VFMs as a way to assess how well the vapor collection process is working. The VFM is used to perform the following CP-201 assessments.

Assessment Type

Daily A/L

Weekly A/L

Duration

Daily

Calendar Week

EVR System

Vacuum Assist

Vacuum Assist

Threshold

Average A/L ratio exceeds 1.90 or less than 0.33

Average A/L ratio exceeds 1.32 or less than 0.81

There shall be one VFM per dispenser, and they wire into the Probe Module. Refer to document Vapor Flow Meter Install

Guide (p/n 000-2144) for installation methods.

Vapor Pressure Sensor

The Vapor Pressure Sensor (TS-VPS) is a low vapor pressure transmitter. The primary purpose of the VPS is to continually measure the underground storage tank’s vapor containment pressure. This vapor containment area includes the tank ullage area, and the vapor piping. The VRM continually samples the VPS and performs assessments for Over

Pressurization and leakage in the vapor containment area. These assessments include:

Assessment Type

Weekly Over-pressurization

Monthly Over-Pressurization

Weekly Leak Test

Duration

Calendar Week

Calendar Month

Calendar Week

Threshold

Pressure > 1.3" WCG for 5% of week

Pressure > 0.3" WCG for 25% of month

Pressure Leak is greater than 2x TP-201.3

There is only one VPS per ISD installation. The VPS connects to the 4-20 mA Module, refer to the Vapor Pressure Sensor

Install Guide (p/n 000-2143). The pressure sensor shall be installed in the dispenser closest to the underground storage tanks.

AC Input Module

In VRM Version 1.2.0, the use of dispenser AC Hook signals is not required*. The AC Input Module may be used to monitor the dispenser hook signals. Dispenser hooks are the signals from the dispensers that are normally used to activate the submersible pumps. For the VRM application they are also used to signal the start and end of a transaction for gasoline products only. Vapor Recovery does not apply to Diesel and Kerosene products so the hook signals for these grades do not need to be monitored. Dispenser Hook Signals are to be wired to the AC-Input Module and the installation directions are in the TS-5xxx Installation Guide (p/n 000-2150).

*

The exception would be with Tokhiem dispensers. Hook signal wiring is still necessary with Tokhiem dispensers.

Dispenser Interface Module

The Dispenser Interface Module (TS-DIM) is used to acquire the volume of gasoline that was pumped during each transaction. Refer to the TS-5xxx Installation Guide (p/n 000-2150) for wiring the TS-DIM.

Ullage Volume

The VRM System uses ullage volume for performing vapor containment leak detection. The console gathers ullage volume from internal inventory probes or an external ATG. When using an existing ATG for collecting ullage, then the ATG must have an available RS-232 port and have the ability to respond to TLS-250 or TLS-350 inventory command.

Relay/10A Relay Module

Power to the dispensers will be controlled by the console in the event of a VRM Failure alarm. The dispenser power is to be controlled by the Relay Module per the installation directions in the TS-5xxx Installation Guide (p/n 000-2150).

Electrical current through the Relay Module is not to exceed the maximum rated current listed on the module. If options in the dispensers will cause the current to exceed the rated current, including startup current,an external power relay will need to be used and it’s coil controlled by the Relay Model. See the TS-5xxx Installation Guide (p/n 000-2150) for installation instructions for the Relay Module and 10A Relay Module.

DTU Module

The DTU Module is an optional device used to transmit the signals of the VPS and VFM to the console. The DTU will provide the ability to communicate over existing dispenser power lines thus eliminating the need to install field cable. For installation instructions of the DTU, refer to the TS-DTU Dispenser Retrofit Manual (pn 000-2146) and the Console DTU

Installation Instructions (pn 000-0080).

Alarms

The user will be automatically notified of VRM or other system alarm conditions via the alarm LEDs and touchscreen display. An audible alarm will sound and the system can also be setup to print or E-mail alarms (Ethernet connection required). Dispenser power is controlled by the console and cannot be disabled.

There are several different wiring schemes that may be encountered when connecting the AC Input Module and Relay

Module. These are dependent upon the use of optional features like Dispenser Hook Isolation, Line Leak Detection (LLD) and Turbine Pump Interface that can affect the way these modules are wired. The description below assumes that this is strictly a VRM system that is sensing the dispenser hook signals from gasoline products only and not controlling the

Submersible Turbine Pumps. For more information on the different wiring options see the TS-5xxx Installation Guide (p/n

000-2150) or contact Franklin Fueling Systems Technical Support at 1-800-984-6266.

(Regular and Super) then wire Dispenser 1 to positions 1 & 2, then

Dispenser 2 to positions 3 & 4.

Dispenser Power Control

In order for the console to shutdown a dispenser or all the dispensers in response to an alarm condition, the dispenser power must be controlled by the Relay Module. Run the coil of the dispenser power relay through the a channel of the

Relay Module.

The 10A Relay Module is rated for 10 amps of continuous current. If the dispenser power, including startup current, exceeds

10A then an external high powered relay must be installed to control the dispensers. It is a good practice to wire the dispenser power in a logical order such as Dispenser 1 to Relay Channel 1, Dispenser 2 to Relay Channel 2, etc.

Setup and Programming

Startup

Upon completing the installation of the Vapor Recovery Monitoring (VRM) System and powering up the Console, programming the setup is the next step.

System Status

The Console will arrive at the site with the VRM application already enabled. Upon first powering up the console you may see a screen that looks like the one in Figure 2a. The system with the screen in Figure 2a has the VRM application as well as the Fuel Management System (FMS) application enabled. These applications are set by a registration key at the time of purchase.

The first step before programming the VRM is to check to see if all the modules are powered up and operational. Select the

System box which brings up the System Status page as shown in Figure 2b.

Figure 2a and 2b

Verify all the modules are present and operational. If all the modules are “Operational” then you may proceed to setup and programming. If not, refer to the Alarm Codes and Troubleshooting section of this manual.

Programming the Console for Vapor Recovery Monitoring

The following programming instructions are specifically intended for the Vapor Recovery Monitoring (VRM) System. For additional programming refer to the TS-5xxx Programming Manual (p/n 000-2142). This manual covers both the hardware programming and the application programming. The method shown below is the same whether the user programs through the local touchscreen or a Web Browser. Inclusion of other options like the FMS application, Dispenser Hook Isolation and Line Leak

Detection (LLD) will effect the programming of the VRM system. The TS-5xxx Programming Manual (p/n 000-2142) describes the proper programming and sequencing for the console setup. The following sections show how to program the setup as it relates to the VRM system. Contact Franklin Fueling Technical Support at 800-984-6266 for assistance with these applications.

Relay Mapping

Relay mapping is necessary for proper shutdown of dispensers. The programming of the Relay Module will tell the VRM which Vapor Flow Meter will control which Dispenser. As you will see this is why we enter a unique name for each Flow

Meter so we can easily identify the channel.

Note: By mapping the relay to the VFM in the following setup, we now enable the VRM to automatically shutdown dispensing upon ISD alarms.

Setup for Multi-Hose Dispensers

This section provides instruction for upgrading the INCON VRM software for Multi-Hose dispensers.

The instructions described below show screen shots from the console web pages. The procedures can be run on either the web pages or the local LCD on the console.

Procedure

1. Important! Print out the following for the entire year:

• ISD Daily Reports

• ISD Monthly Reports

• Alarm History Report

These reports may be needed for local regulators and the ISD data will be lost when the multi-hose setup is enabled.

Note: To save paper, generate the reports from the console web pages and print to a PDF file.

2. Upgrade the firmware in the console to the latest version (rev 1.2.0 or higher) using the released

TSA Upgrade Tool.

3. Setup will need to be modified to change from Uni-hose configuration to Multi-hose configuration.

Can set hour and day for assessment

Select and enable

Multihose option

Hose positions need to be verified that they are mapped to the correct grades. This can be done easily by pumping a little fuel on each grade and verifying it on the console. The following steps will guide you through the verification of the hose mapping.

4. Starting on Dispenser 1, block off both fueling points for testing.

5. Navigate to the VRM > Control page > Manual A/L. Notice you will now see each hose listed in the table.

Verifying DIM Mapping

a. Enable all the check-boxes for fueling point 1 and 2 and then click START TEST in upper right corner.

b. Starting at Fueling point 1 pump two gallons from the 87 unleaded hose. Complete the transaction and then pump

2.5 gallons from 89 unleaded hose. Complete transaction and then pump 1 gallon from 91 unleaded hose.

c. Return to laptop screen and verify the amounts pumped correspond to the correct grade.

d. If NO fuel amounts appear under the liquid column after 30 seconds of hanging up the nozzle, then that hose position number may be incorrect.

e. If the fuel amounts appeared under a different hose (i.e. 87-2 gallons show up under the 91 row) then the hose position numbers may be in the wrong order. If this is the case edit the position numbers under each hose to match where the amounts populated. (i.e. if the 2 gallons pumped on 89 appear under the 91 hose then change the position number assigned to 89 to 91 and so on.) f. Repeat A through E on each fueling point.

If the mapping of the first 2 dispensers is incorrect, running the DIM Query is recommended.

Verify the mapping of all hoses after query.

Note: If dispensers are not verified, daily and weekly assessments may not occur.

Managing Rules

Alarms will be generated automatically and can be seen on the touchscreen display or the Alarm pages on the web browser. These alarms can be programmed to generate various outputs based on the Rules setup.

Note: VRM alarms will automatically disable dispensers and this feature cannot be turned off per CP-201 requirements.

Additional actions can be created by setting up Rules. Rules are the way to create actions and notifications based on specific events change. Events are the inputs to the rule, for example it can be a failed test or a sensor gone bad, but it can also be a simple test completion notification. Actions are the outputs for the Rules, for example you can program the console to send emails, trip relays, or sound alarms. The Rules are entirely flexible and allow stations owners to customize the alarm notification process.

There are three default rules enabled on the Console. These rules all have actions to sound the internal audible alarm.

These rules can be disabled or can have their action changed. New Rules can be added for complete customization for notification. Below is an example of a new rule that emails a notification on any new VRM alarm. A more descriptive explanation on Rules can be found in the TS-5xxx Programming Guide (p/n 000-2142).

The System-status window shows the state, slot location, and module version number of each module inside the physical console.

VRM»Status

The VRM-Status window gives the current status of each Vapor Flow Meter, pressure sensor, and other VRM related data.

See Figure 5b.

Vapor Recovery Web Pages

VRM Status Page (Web Page View)

The

VRM»Status page will show up to date status for each fueling point. The status is based on the previous days results. In the Current Status column a Pass (  ), Failure (

X ), Warning ( ! ), or Insufficient ( * ) symbol will show up for each fueling point. The final assessment for each fueling point will occur at the end of the day and can be viewed in the

ISD reports. The following describes the remaining information in the VRM status page. Refer to Figure 4 - VRM Status

Page.

Auto Refresh: The LCD automatically refreshes the screen with the latest data. Using the web version, the VRM Status page has an optional Auto Refresh mode and can be enabled by selecting the “Auto Refresh” link in the upper right-hand corner. The default refresh rate is set to 30 seconds but can be changed to a faster or slower rate. To change the refresh rate go to the

TS-VFM: Shows the state of the vapor flow meters and is only in the web-based view. There are four possible states:

Operational – The VFM has no alarms

Missing – The VRM has lost communication with the vapor flow meter. This may occur during an open circuit or the vapor flow meter is not installed on the port in which it was programmed for.

No Data – The VRM is unable to understand the input data. This may occur when a port is programmed for a flow meter but a magnostrictive probe is connected instead.

Error – The flow meter data was not sent correctly. This may occur when with excessive noise in the system or it is an indication that the flow meter is not functioning correctly.

Fueling Point: This is the assigned fueling point number from setup.

Daily Status: The daily status shows the last completed daily assessment for each fueling point/hose. One of four symbols will be displayed for each fueling point/hose.

Weekly Status: The weekly status shows the last completed weekly assessment for each fueling point/hose.

Last A/L: This value is the fueling point’s last calculated A/L ratio result. The value is based only on a single transaction.

Alarms, Warnings, and Failures

Alarms, warnings, and failures are designed to alert you with specific details when a problem occurs so that you can take appropriate corrective action. System alarms, VRM alarms, VRM warnings, and VRM Failures will always notify the user in certain ways, other notification options are programmable.

Figure 7 shows an example of two System Alarms, and one VRM alarm. All active alarms can be viewed from the LCD by pressing the Alarm button, , at the bottom of the LCD. Once the alarm goes inactive it will disappear from the

Home/Alarm page but will remain stored in memory. Any outputs that are programmed to activate based on alarms will go active. These outputs can be customized to activate based on specific alarms or all alarms in the Rules setup.

System Alarms

System alarms are non-application related alarms. These alarms are usually related to hardware such as an internal module is offline or a printer problem.

Figure 7

VRM Alarms

Vapor Recovery alarms are hardware problems related to the Vapor Recovery Monitoring application. VRM alarms will be generated immediately with a flashing RED LED. A VRM alarm will not cause a dispenser(s) shutdown.

VRM Warnings and Failures

VRM Warnings and Failures are monitoring alarms related only to the Vapor Recovery Monitoring application. These

Warnings and Failures are directly related to the CP-201 ISD requirement to monitor collection and containment of the vapor recovery system. A VRM warning will occur when either a fueling collection point or the entire vapor containment does not meet the operating thresholds. A warning is the first sign of a vapor recovery problem. A VRM failure will follow the warning if the specific problem with the vapor recovery component does not get fixed within the monitoring time period. This failure will cause either a single or site shutdown, depending on the type. The following provides more detail on the specific warning and failure types.

Vapor Collection Warning and Failure

Vapor collection warning and failures (A/L) generally occur due to poor or no vapor being returned to the underground storage tank during fueling transactions. The VRM system makes both a daily and weekly assessment on the quantity of the vapor collection. If the collection is below the lower failure limit or above the higher failure limit, then the VRM will go into alarm.

Upon a Vapor Collection Warning condition, it is highly recommended to get the fueling point(s) serviced as soon as possible. If a fueling point goes untreated, then the VRM will issue a failure alarm and shut down the affected dispenser.

If this condition occurs, the entire dispenser should be placed out of service until a Franklin Fueling Systems certified technician can troubleshoot the problem. All other dispenser will remain in operation. See Appendix A for the Alarm Code description and possible solution, or the Vapor Recovery Monitoring Troubleshooting and Diagnostics Guide available on the Franklin Fueling Systems Web site: www.franklinfueling.com

.

23

Vapor Pressure Containment Warnings and Failures

A Weekly or Monthly Ullage Pressure warning or failure occurs when the vapor pressure exceeds the operating threshold.

The VRM system makes both a weekly and monthly assessment on the amount of time the vapor containment pressure exceeds a threshold over a specific period of time. If the containment pressure rises above the overpressure limits for either the weekly or monthly thresholds, then the VRM will issue a warning. A second consecutive period of exceeding the overpressure threshold will result in a failure alarm and a shutdown of all dispensers.

A Weekly Ullage Pressure Leak Test warning or failure is an indication that the containment space (vapor space) is leaking vapors beyond the allowable limit. This assessment is performed on a weekly basis. If a vapor containment is leaking, the

VRM will issue a warning at the end of the first week and if it is not fixed by the end of the second week then all dispenser will become disabled.

See Appendix A for the Alarm Code description and possible solution, or the Vapor Recovery Monitoring Troubleshooting

and Diagnostics Guide available on the Franklin Fueling Systems Web site: www.franklinfueling.com

.

Re-enabling Dispenser(s)

Dispensers can be re-enabled by the following method. Note that this procedure does not clear any warnings or failures, it only re-enables dispensing.

Warning

Warning

The Failed fueling point requires immediate attention and should be bagged so it is not used until the problem has been fixed by a certified Service Technician. Continuous use of a failed Fueling

Point will result in another shutdown.

Refer to local districts before putting a shutdown dispenser back into operation.

From the LCD:

1. Go to the VRM»Dispensers menu (see Figure 5a & 5b and Figure 6a & 6b).

2. Press the dispenser showing “Shutdown”.

3. Press “Yes” on the confirmation box.

From the Web Browser:

1. Go to the VRM»Status page.

2. Press the red “Shutdown” for each dispenser showing shutdown.

3. Press “Yes” to enable the dispenser or all dispensers.

24

Note: If a dispenser shutdown was caused by poor vapor collection, you will only be able to enable one dispenser at a time. If the shutdown was caused by a pressure failure, you will be able to enable all dispensers at the same time by pressing any dispenser.

Clearing Alarms

Vapor Flow and Vapor Pressure alarms can be cleared by running the respective manual test or by waiting until the next assessment period has passed.

Clearing Vapor Collection (A/L) Alarms

Once a certified technician has fixed the cause of the vapor flow problem, the alarm can be cleared by two methods: running a manual test or letting the fueling point go through a full day of transactions. The manual A/L test is much faster and will allow the technician to clear the alarm before leaving the site. To run a manual test, go to VRM»Control then select “Manual A/L Test”. Now select the fueling point(s) that are in alarm and on the next dispense, if there is an A/L passes then the alarm will clear. See Figure 8a & 8b.

Figure 8a & 8b

Note: The manual A/L test should be done on either a known non-ORVR vehicle or test container that will return air/vapor mixture back to the UST. If the A/L does not meet the required threshold then the fueling point will remain in alarm.

Clearing Pressure Related Alarms

A technician will also have two methods of clearing pressure related alarms by either letting the system go through its normal assessment period or manually clearing pressure alarms.

To clear a Pressure Related Alarms, do the following:

1. Go to the VRM»Control Page and select “Clear Monitoring”.

2. Enter in your Franklin Fueling Systems technician ID number.

3. Enter in the administrator password.

4. All the Pressure Monitoring Alarms shall clear.

25

Reports & Printing

Reports can be generated and printed based on the last 30 days, by month, or by year. The console stores ISD history for two years.

Figure 9a and 9b - VRM Reports LCD View

26

Press

Alarm Reports

Alarm reports can be generated either from the System»Reports page or the VRM»Alarms web page. The

System»Reports page will generate both the system alarms and application alarms while the VRM»Alarms will only generate VRM related application alarms.

VRM Reports

There are two different VRM reports that can be generated, a Daily Report and a Monthly Report. The Daily Report generates a list of results for each day on a rolling 30 day basis. The information included in the report is:

Daily Report

ISD Up-Time

The ISD up-time is the percentage that the ISD System is running the VRM application. It calculates the up-time based on actual run-time during a 24-hour period. It is stated in CP-201 that the ISD system must be running 95% of the time on an annual basis.

Highest and Lowest Ullage Pressure

The highest and lowest ullage pressure is the highest and lowest average hourly pressure for each day.

75 th

and 95 th

Percentile Ullage Pressure

The VRM records and stores the 75 th

and 95 th

highest ullage pressure for each day.

Fueling Point Assessments

This shows the daily status of each fueling point. There are four assessments that each fueling point can be classified into; pass, failure, warning, or insufficient data.

Monthly Report

ISD Operation Time, %

The ISD operation time is the cumulative operation time of the VRM application. It is stated in CP-201 that the ISD system must be running 95% of the time on an annual basis.

EVR Operating Requirements

The EVR operating requirements list what EVR components are installed at the site and what each component should be operating at if applicable.

EVR Pass Time, %

The EVR pass time is the percentage of time the entire EVR system is not in an Alarm state.

ISD Monitoring Requirements

The ISD monitoring requirements are the limits in which alarms are triggered by.

Warning, Failures

This is a list of current and past warnings and failures that relate to VRM.

Event Log

The event log shows a description of any shutdowns and the action to re enable any fueling points.

Pressure and Transaction Log Files

The console records pressure and transaction data on a continuous rolling basis. There are two .csv (comma separated values) files that can be downloaded from the VRM download page. These files are Microsoft Excel compatible and can be used as a diagnostics tool to help troubleshoot sites.

Note:

This feature is only available in VRM Version 1.2.0 or higher.

Pressure Log Files

The pressure log file contains 2 weeks of pressure samples in one minute increments. Below is an explanation of the columns in the pressure log file.

Term Description

DATE_LOCAL

This column is the date the pressure sample was recorded.

TIME_LOCAL

QUIET_TIME

This column is the time the pressure sample was recorded.

This value indicate if there was active dispensing at the time of the sample. A “1” indicates at least one fueling point is dispensing and a “0” indicates no fueling points are dispensing.

PRESSURE

This is the pressure sample recorded by the console. The Vapor Pressure Sensor has a range between -8 Inches

WC and +8 Inches WC. The pressure value may reach as far as 9 Inches WC, this is ok.

ULLAGE

The ullage is the amount of vapor space in the vapor containment area. The units are in gallons.

Description

This column indicates the hose or fueling point number the transaction occurred on. The value shown is a combination of fueling point number and hose number. The right two digits indicate the hose number and the left digits indicate the fueling point number. For uni-hose dispensers, the right two digits can be ignored. You will see a 100 for fueling point 1, 200 for fueling point 2, etc. For multi-hose dispensers, you will see values such as

101 indicating fueling point 1 hose 1 or 703 indicating fueling point 7 hose 3.

This column is the date at the beginning of the transaction.

This column is the time at the beginning of the transaction. The time is a local reference to the console.

This column is the air or vapor returned through the ISD flow meter. The units are in gallons.

This is the amount of gasoline that was dispensed during the transaction. The units are in gallons.

This is the A / L ratio of the transaction.

This is the classification of the transaction. Only v_VRMValidAoL type transactions are used as part of the daily and weekly average:

v_VrmValidAoL is a single transaction that was either less than 0.15 or greater than 0.50.

v_VrmORVRPotential is a single transaction that was between 0.15 and 0.50.

v_VrmMultipleTransactions is when both sides of a dispenser were active at the same time.

v_VrmDispenseVolumeZero occurs when no liquid volume is dispensed. This may occur when a transaction is aborted before pumping any fuel.

v_VrmSmallFuelVolume occurs when less than 1 gallon of gasoline is dispensed.

v_VrmTransactionLost occurs when the console does not receive the volume of gasoline dispensed from the dispenser or a new transaction occurs too quickly.

v_VrmReferenceTest is assigned to a transaction when the transaction is being run as part of a Manual A / L.

This is usually done when clearing vapor collection alarms.

Below is an example of a transaction log file as viewed in MS Excel.

Alarm

This vapor recovery alarm occurs when the UST ullage pressure exceeds the alarm threshold for the time period specified in the alarm.

This vapor recovery alarm occurs when the Vapor Recovery Monitor determines a leak greater than the allowable.

A flow meter is not connected or there is an open in the wiring. This will only occur for a flow meter channel that is programmed to have a flow meter.

The Vapor Recovery Monitor does not understand the data transmission.

The pressure sensor is not connected to the Vapor Recovery

Monitor.

No communication between the

TS-DIM and the Console.

Bad communication to the

Console.

No communication or bad communication between the ATG and the Console.

Look for problems using one or more of the following VR-202 procedures/ tests: Dispenser Integrity Test B-3m (i.e.

“Plumbing Tightness test), Exhibit 4,

Exhibit 5, Exhibit 9 (pressure sensor only) or flow rate verification per section 1.2.3.

May occur when there’s an excessive leak in the vapor recovery containment area.

Perform a pressure decay test per TP-

201.3.

Check the connection. Measure the voltage of the terminals, which should be approximately 18Vdc.

This may happen when a channel is programmed for a magnostrictive probe but has a vapor flow meter connected instead.

Usually due to a bad connection or a broken wire. In some cases the sensor may not be working. First check the connections inside the dispenser junction box then at the Console terminal block.

Second, measure the voltage at the terminal blocks and verify the voltage. See page 17.

Occurs with bad connection, TS-DIM does not have power, TS-DIM is not working.

Check the wiring between the TS-DIM and the Console. Check the jumper settings in the TS-DIM, see installation manual.

Most likely a baud rate problem. Check the baud rate in the Console as well as the jumper settings in the TS-DIM.

Check the comm. Port settings in both the

ATG and the Console. These comm. Port settings should match. Make sure there is a straight serial cable between the ATG and the Console.
