179-0710 Cat Burn Rate Meter Fuel Flow Measurement System.

The Cat 179-0710 Burn Rate Meter Fuel Flow Measurement System is a portable test system designed to measure the burn rate on small to medium Cat diesel engines. It has a built-in heat exchanger and electric fuel pump to cool warm fuel from the return fuel line of the engine.

The burn rate meter uses one positive displacement flowmeter, making it more accurate than a two-meter system. Problems with air bubbles in the return fuel are eliminated because the return fuel flow is not measured by the flowmeter.

The 179-0701 Burn Rate Meter Computer connects to the 179-0700 Burn Rate Meter with a 179-0702Cable. It provides power, automatic fuel temperature correction, and two outputs. A frequency output represents burn rate in gallons per hour and can be measured with the Cat 131-5050 Dataview (use a PC for monitoring) or 9U-7401 Multitach II. The RS485 output represents burn rate in gallons per hour and can be monitored with the Cat 154-8106 Hand-Held Fuel Flow Display.

The burn rate computer is powered from the machine's 11 to 32 VDC batteries. An optional 95 to 250 VAC power supply is also available.

The Cat burn rate measurement system is available in two groups. The 179-0710 Burn Rate Meter System contains a hand-held display and the 179-0711 Burn Rate Meter System is available without a display. The burn rate measurement system has an operating range of 4 ± 160 Lph (1.06 ± 42.272 US gph) burn rate and is designed to work with 3116, 3126, 3176, 3208, 3304, 3306, 3406, and 3408 Engines. This system is not recommended for electronic engines larger than 3408 because of fuel line restriction, but can be used for mechanical 3412 Engines with lower fuel flow circulation.

Principle of Operation

Operation Of Burn Rate Meter.

179-0700 Burn Rate Meter

The 179-0700 Burn Rate Meter consists of three basic parts as shown in 8: a positive displacement fuel meter, an electric fuel pump, and a heat exchanger.

The burn rate meter has two fuel loops: the cooling fuel loop (Loop 1) and the engine fuel loop (Loop 2).

The cooling fuel loop (Loop 1) is powered by an electric fuel pump in the burn rate meter. This pump circulates fuel from the fuel tank, through the heat exchanger, and back to the fuel tank. This loop runs continuously and is used to cool the engine return fuel.

The engine fuel loop (Loop 2) supplies fuel to the engine (supply fuel) and then recirculates unburned fuel. The warm, unburned fuel from the engine (return fuel) travels through the heat exchanger to be cooled. The cooled fuel is routed back to the engine and recirculated. The fuel pump of the engine keeps fuel Loop 2 circulating continuously.

As the engine operates and burns fuel, Loop 2 becomes depleted of fuel and must draw fuel from Loop 1. The positive displacement fuel meter measures fuel traveling from Loop 1 to Loop 2. This fuel measurement is converted to a calibrated signal in the burn rate computer and represents the burn rate.

179-0701 Burn Rate Computer

The burn rate computer connects to the 179-0700 Burn Rate Meter using a 179-0702 Cable . The burn rate computer provides power, automatic temperature compensation, filtering, and output signal calibration.

System calibration is obtained by setting the pulses/liter rotary switches inside the burn rate computer. Refer to the "Controls and Connections" section. The calibration number stamped on the 179-0700 Burn Rate Meter must be set on the 179-0701 Burn Rate Computer pulses/liter rotary switches. If the switches do not match the calibration number stamped on the burn rate meter the calibration will not be accurate.

The converter power supply in the burn rate computer allows the system to operate using 11 to 32 V DC power.

Electronic circuits in the burn rate computer measure fuel pulses and temperature from the burn rate meter. A semiconductor device attached to the fuel meter measures the fuel temperature and compensates for the change in volume of diesel fuel as the fuel changes temperature.

The burn rate computer includes a high and low-filter setting. The high-filter setting is recommended for burn rates above 19 lph (5.02 US gph) or if faster response to Ioad changes are needed, while the low-filter setting is recommended for burn rates below 19 lph (5.02 US gph) to improve the stability of burn rate readings.

The burn rate computer also provides two outputs. The first output is a frequency output scaled at 10Hz equals 3.8 lph (1.00 US gph) of burn rate. The frequency output can be used by the Cat 131-5050 Dataview or 9U-7401 Multitach II when connected to the burn rate computer using a 6V-2198 Extension Cable. The second output is for RS485 communications and can be used with the Cat 154-8106 Hand-Held Fuel Flow Display when connected to the burn rate computer with a 154-8095 Cable. The display will show the fuel temperature at the fuel meter.

Installation Instructions

Engines with Supply and Return Fuel Flow Lines




Illustration 9g02448319

Hook-Up Diagram For Engines With Supply And Return Fuel Flow Lines.

Use this procedure to connect the burn rate meter into the engine fuel system. Although every engine installation cannot be covered here, this procedure is the basic connection method for the burn rate meter.

Refer to 9 during the installation procedure. This illustration shows the burn rate meter installed in the best location. The "From Tank" connection is the most important connection. This is where fuel is supplied to the entire system and should be free from air bubbles and pressure pulses.

  1. The "From Tank" line of the burn rate meter must be connected.

    1. Directly to the fuel tank.

    1. Before the engine fuel pump.

      Note: Do not connect the "From Tank" line of the burn rate meter after the output of a gear or piston-type transfer fuel pump. The fuel pump of the engine circulates fuel through the engine and the heat exchanger of the burn rate meter. Connecting the burn rate meter after the fuel transfer pump will not allow fuel to circulate through the engine.

  1. Select the required hoses and fittings from the hose adapter group to make the necessary connections.

    Note: The hose adapter group includes standard 37 degree flare fittings and O-ring face seal adapters. Special fittings may be required for some installations.

  1. Close the fuel shut-off valve at the fuel tank. use 6V-7555 Cable Strap .

    Tie Straps through the handle and around the body to mount the burn rate meter (two mounting screws on the rear of the meter are also available). The meter should be upright, with the carrying handle on top when being operated.

Note: The meter can be tipped 30° from an upright position and still work properly.

Engines with Only Supply Fuel Flow Lines (No Return Fuel Flow Lines)

In applications where only one fuel line exists, such as in older engines, use this procedure.

  1. Install a cap on the "From Engine" fitting of the burn rate meter.

  1. The "To Tank" line on the burn rate meter must return to the fuel tank. Since a "To Tank" line on the equipment probably does not exist and must be provided, run the "To Tank" line into the fuel tank fill opening of the equipment. Take steps to make sure that the " To Tank " line cannot come loose and leak fuel or allow dirt into the fuel tank of the equipment.

Fuel Tank

Heat from the engine fuel system is transferred to the fuel tank. To ensure that the engine fuel does not overheat, always keep the fuel tank at least one-third full of fuel. For best results, fill the fuel tank before testing.

Operating Instructions

Setting the Calibration Switches

System calibration is obtained by setting the pulses/liter rotary switches inside the burn rate computer. Refer to "Care and Maintenance" section to check or change the setting. The 179-0701 Burn Rate Computer is factory set for 800 pulses/Liter. This is the calibration setting required for all burn rate meters, unless the meter has a PPL number other than 800 on the calibration tag.

Setting the Serial Number Switches

Note: These steps are required only when using the 154-8106 Display with two burn rate meters.

Serial Number Switch (1).




Illustration 18g02448437

Side View Showing Location Of Serial Number Switch (1).

  1. To use a ONE burn rate meter system, set serial number switch (1) in the "down" position. This will identify the burn rate meter serial number as 00001 supply meter and even though a return meter is not being used, the burn rate computer will send a 00003 serial number and a zero flow rate to the display, which makes it operate properly.

    Note: This is the factory Serial Number Switch Setting.

  1. To use a TWO burn rate meter systems with the 154-8106 Display, to monitor twin engine installation, set up the first burn rate system as described in Step 1. The second burn rate meter system is set up to identify its meter as serial number 00002. Set the switch in the "up" position. This will identify the second burn rate meter as a supply meter having a serial number 00002 and even though a return meter is not being used, the burn rate computer will send a 00004 serial number and a zero flow rate to the display, which makes it operate properly.

    Note: The two burn rate computers and display are connected using the optional 179-0715 "Y" Cable.

    Note: Once the serial number switch settings are made they will not have to be changed unless different burn rate meters are used.

  1. ENTER: While in the Normal Display Mode, this key scrolls forward through the list of available display data items when one of the Fl through F5 function keys has been pressed. This is used for selecting display items to save one of the Fl through F5 keys. In the Menu Mode, the ENTER key selects a menu item, confirms changes to menu options, or tags items for data-logging.

  1. Numeric Keys:These keys are used to enter numeric values while in the Menu Mode. They are disabled while in the Normal Display Mode.

Mounting the 154-8105 Display




Illustration 25g02448486

Mounting Options For The 154-8105 Display.

Bezel Mount: An optional bezel is supplied to allow simple installation through the front of the panel. With the use of the bezel gasket, this method allows the display housing to create a seal with the front panel.

Surface Mount: The display has mounting slots that allow it to be snapped onto fasteners which are partially unscrewed from the panel.

Note: This arrangement does not provide sealing for the display housing to front panel interface.

Sandwich Mount: The display may be separated into two halves and reassembled with the panel sandwiched between the two halves. The display front housing can be sealed to the panel using the enclosure gasket. The internal connector must be separated to install unit.


NOTICE

Note the orientation of the connector before removing the connector from the front half. The display may be damaged if connector is reversed when reassembled to the front half.


Multiple Display Operation

If two displays, 154-8105 and/or 154-8106, are connected to the junction box using 154-8095 Cables, only one can be allowed to - communicate with the 179-0701 Burn Rate Computer or the two displays will interfere with each other trying to communicate. The display allowed to communicate with the flowmeters to acquire fuel data is called the Master, and the other display must be set up to receive fuel data from the Master display. It is referred to as the Slave. To set up a display as Master or Slave, go to the Main Menu from the Normal Display Mode by pressing MENU. Use the arrow keys until the cursor is on the line showing COMM MODE:, followed by MASTER or SLAVE. Use the ENTER key to toggle from MASTER or SLAVE or vice versa. If the ENTER key is pressed and ERR: LOGGING ACTIVE momentarily is shown on this line, then Logging is ON and must be turned OFF. Refer to "Data Logging Sub-Menu" section.

Now the displays may be programmed with the flowmeter addresses to display that particular flowmeter fuel parameters. Refer to the "Measuring Fuel Flow" section.

Note: The Master and Slave displays can be programmed with different flowmeter addresses.

The Master and Slave arrangement allows the user to have remote displays, multiple data loggers to simultaneously log different data at different logging rates, or to perform the same log with both displays so there is a backup.

Note: If the Master display fails to communicate with the Slave display, the Slave display will promote itself to Master and communicate directly with only the flowmeters that have their flowmeter addresses programmed in the Slave display.

Programming the Function Keys (F1, F2, F3, F4,F5)

When one of the five function keys is pressed and the key was not previously programmed, the display will go blank.

To program a function key:

  1. Use the arrow keys to scroll to the line to be programmed or reprogrammed (line 1 through line 4).

  1. Press the ENTER key to scroll forward through the list of available data display items. Holding the SHIFT key in the pressed position and pushing the ENTER key will allow scrolling backwards.

  1. Stop scrolling when the line the cursor is on shows the desired data display item.

  1. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 until data display items are changed or added on each display line.

  1. To save the new display setup, first enter the Menu Mode by pushing the MENU key. Stop the TOTALIZER if it shows that it is started, and scroll to the line showing the function key to be programmed. Then, push the ENTER key to save. If the display setup is being changed, then USED will continue to be shown on the right side of the line. If the function key was not already programmed, then USED will be shown only after the ENTER key is pressed.

Note: Pressing any key other than what is described in Steps 1 through 5, before the function setup is saved in the display, will result in that temporary setup being lost.

Operational Modes

There are two general modes of operation for the fuel flow display. They are referred to as Normal Mode and Menu Mode. Normal Mode is the display mode that the unit starts in after power-up. This mode is used for viewing different engine (Engine 1/Engine 2) flowmeter parameters, such as temperature and burn rate. Changing which data is visible is done using the keys on the front side of the display.

The Menu Mode is entered while in the Normal Mode by pressing the MENU key. Press the MENU key again to exit the MENU Mode and return to the Normal Mode. The Menu Mode has several Menus:

Table 16
Main Menu    
Data Logging Sub-Menu    
Tag Sub-Menu    
Arrange Sub-Menu    

The menus are arranged one beneath the other. The Menu Mode Main Menu is the menu first entered when the MENU key is pressed while in the Normal Mode. The Data Logging Sub-Menu is then entered by using the arrow keys to scroll the cursor to the line showing DATA LOGGING MENU>: and pressing the ENTER key. The Data Logging Sub-Menu is exited to the Main Menu by pressing the MENU key. The Data Logging Sub-Menu and the two Sub-Menus (Tag and Arrange) are used for setting up, performing, and down loading a datalog.

Main Menu

This menu is entered while in the Normal Display Mode by pressing the ENTER key. Press the ENTER key again to exit the Main Menu and return to the Normal Display Mode. The Main Menu allows the user to view and make changes to the parameters viewed in the Normal Display Mode. Use the arrow keys to scroll the flashing block-shaped cursor to the line of interest, then press the ENTER key to initiate the action with the particular menu item (line).

Pressing and holding the SHIFT key and then pressing the scroll up key while in Menu Mode will cause the menu display to shift up by 4 lines in the display order leaving the cursor positioned 4 lines higher than before.

Pressing and holding the SHIFT key and then pressing the scroll down key while in Menu Mode will cause the display to shift down by 4 lines in the display order leaving the cursor positioner 4 lines lower than before.

Note: You will not be allowed to change some menu items when either logging is active, or the totalizer is active. The display will warn you when this is the case by flashing a short message such as: ERR: TOTALIZER ACTIVE or something similar for a second or two.

Main Menu Items

  1. TOTALIZER STARTED: Starts and stops all totalizing functions which include ENGl TOTAL, ENG2 TOTAL, G.TOT ENG1, and G.TOT ENG2. Average burn calculations are not affected. When the cursor is on this line, press ENTER to toggle between TOTALIZER STARTED and TOTALIZER STOPPED. When power is first applied to the display, the totalizer is automatically started. Some functions, such as changing the addresses of the flowmeters is not allowed while the totalizer is running.

  1. CLEAR GRAND TOTALS: When the cursor is on this line, press the ENTER key to clear the grand totals. You will be prompted to confirm that you wish to clear the grand totals. Press Fl to confirm, or F5 to abort the action. The values of the grand totals (G.TOT ENGl and/or G.TOT ENG2) can be viewed by programming one of the function keys ( Fl, F2, F3, F4, or F5).

  1. SET TIME: To set the current time of the clock, move the cursor to this line and press the ENTER key. The cursor will move to the hours position. This is a 24 hour clock (no AM/PM).

  1. SAVE F2: Refer to "SAVE Fl".

  1. SAVE F2: Refer to "SAVE Fl".

  1. SAVE F4: Refer to "SAVE Fl".

  1. SAVE F5: Refer to "SAVE Fl".

  1. COMM MODE: MASTER: For single display systems, this should be left in the MASTER position. The SLAVE position is used to allow more than one display to be connected to the 154-8107 Junction Box. Refer to the "Multiple Display Operation" section for a more detailed explanation.

  1. UPPER SPAN: UNUSED.

  1. LOWER SPAN: UNUSED.

  1. DATA LOGGING MENU: Selecting this item by pressing the ENTER key will activate the Data Logging Sub-Menu.

Data Logging Sub-Menu

This submenu is used for setting up and doing a Datalog. Select this submenu by going to the DATA LOGGING MENU>: in the Main Menu and pressing the ENTER key. Go from the Data Logging Sub-Menu back to the Main Menu by pressing the MENU key.

  1. TAG ITEMS TO LOG >: Selecting this menu entry causes the display to enter and display the TAG submenu. The TAG submenu is used to select and de-select (tag/untag) the data items to be logged. Tagging/Untagging of data items is not allowed while datalogging is active. The error message ERR: LOGGING ACTIVE will appear momentarily if the cursor is on the TAG ITEMS TO LOG> line and ENTER is pressed while logging is active (ON).

  1. LOGGING IS: This value toggles between ON and OFF, which turns the logging on and off. If logging is turned ON (active), and power is removed from the display, then logging will resume as soon as power is reapplied to the display. The display will automatically turn logging off when the memory is full. If logging is turned ON, then OFF, and then back ON at a later time, the data logging continues from the point that it was when it was last turned off. The data from the previous logging session is NOT lost.

  1. LOG SPAN: This value displays the time (in hours) remaining in logging memory, given the current logging interval selected, and the number of items currently tagged for logging. The LOG SPAN can be viewed at anytime and decreases as a datalog is performed until it reaches 0.0 hours. At this point, the display will turn off the logger and LOGGING OFF will be shown on the logging line. If you choose to enter a value here (in hours), the display will calculate the minimum logging interval required to fill logging memory in that selected time, and will change the logging interval to the calculated minimum interval. Only an integral number of hours can be entered. For example: If the log memory is empty, two items are tagged to be logged (ENG 1 NET and ENG 1 TOTAL), and the selected log interval is 60 seconds, this value will be displayed as over 270 hours. This means logging will stop with memory completely filled up approximately 11 days after being started (providing uninterrupted power is provided). If the number 168 were entered here, the logging interval would change to about 36 seconds. Then, logging would stop with memory full 168 hours (7 days) after being started.

  1. LOG INTRVL: This value represents the time period between successive "logs" of data to memory. The minimum value for this item is 1 second. The maximum value is 65535 seconds (1092 minutes, 18.2 hours). The default is 10 minutes.

  1. LOG INTRVL UNIT: This value toggles between SEC and MIN. The corresponding value in LOG INTRVL will change when this selection is changed. Note that when displaying minutes, the actual value is still in seconds, and the minute value displayed is actually a rounded value. For example, if 110 seconds was initially entered for a log interval, then the logging interval units was changed from seconds to minutes, the logging interval would then display as 1 minute, however, the actual interval for logging would still be 110 seconds. To enter an integral number of minutes (for example, 10 minutes), first change the units to minutes, then enter 0010. To double check, toggle back to seconds, and the logging interval should display 600SEC.

  1. CLEAR LOG MEMORY/LOG MEMORY IS EMPTY: This function is used to clear log memory. If log memory is already cleared, the menu entry will appear as: LOG MEMORY IS EMPTY. If the log memory contains data, the entry will appear as: CLEAR LOG MEMORY. If the ENTER key is pressed, the screen will change to prompt the user with: CLEAR LOG MEMORY? and ARE YOU SURE? with F1-YES and F5-NO. If the user wishes to clear log memory, the F1 key should be pressed. If the F1 key is pressed, the message LOG MEMORY CLEARED will appear momentarily, and the menu entry will change to LOG MEMORY IS EMPTY. If the user does NOT wish to clear memory, then press the F5 key to abort the operation, and the message CLEAR ABORTED will appear. If the menu entry appears as CLEAR LOG MEMORY, then the log memory contains data. If the menu entry appears as LOG MEMORY IS EMPTY, then the log memory is empty.

  1. MEMORY OVERWRITE: If memory overwrite is OFF, logging will stop when the memory is full. If memory overwrite is ON when the logging data fills up all of the available memory, the unit will "wrap" back around to the beginning of log memory, overwriting the oldest data with new data. This will continue indefinitely, or until terminated by external means, such as turning logging OFF. Memory must be clear before turning memory overwrite ON. If logging is ON (active), memory overwrite cannot be turned ON or OFF. Once logging is turned OFF, then memory overwrite can also be turned OFF. At this point, the tag definitions can be changed and logging continued, but not with memory overwrite. The log memory must be clear in order to engage memory overwrite. When memory overwrite is ONN, the indicators of remaining log memory only indicate the amount of time before the next "wrap" back to the beginning of memory.

  1. DUMP FORMAT IS: This item appears as TSV (tab separated variable) or CSV (comma-separated variable) and is changed by pressing the ENTER key with the cursor on this line. It changes the format of data retrieved from log memory and dumped to a personal computer. It separates the variables by tabs (TSV) or commas (CSV). The default is TSV, which is compatible with most spreadsheets.

Tag Sub-Menu

The tag menu lists all of the data items available for logging. It is only accessible from the Data Logging Sub-Menu. Enter the Tag Sub-Menu by scrolling to TAG ITEMS TO LOG> and pressing the ENTER key.

Items to be logged are "tagged" by moving the cursor to the line to the desired data item using the scroll up or down key and then pressing the ENTER key. This action will tag an item if it was untagged, or untag a previously tagged item. Tagged items are shown by an asterisk (*) to the right of the item.

When you have finished tagging/untagging items to be included/excluded as data items to be logged, press the MENU key. This will place the display in the ARRANGE Sub-Menu. Refer to the "ARRANGE Sub-Menu" section.

  1. ENG 1 SUPPLY

  1. ENG 1 RETURN

  1. ENG 1 BURN

  1. ENG 2 SUPPLY

  1. ENG 2 RETURN

  1. ENG 2 BURN

  1. ENG 1 AVG. BURN

  1. ENG 2 GRAND TOTAL

  1. ENG 1 SUPPLY TEMP

  1. ENG 1 RETURN TEMP

  1. ENG 2 SUPPLY TEMP

  1. ENG 2 RETURN TEMP

Arrange Sub-Menu

The Arrange SubMenu is entered by pressing the MENU key while in the tag submenu.

The Arrange SubMenu is used to allow the user to view and change the ordering in which the data items are stored while logging. The data will be in this order when dumped to a computer at a later time. Initially, the ordering of the data items is the order in which they were tagged in the Tag SubMenu. The Arrange Menu shows only those items that have been tagged.

To change the ordering of the data items, place the cursor on the data item you wish to move up in the list and press the ENTER key. The data item will swap places with the data item which was above it, and the cursor will remain on the data item that was moved allowing for multiple moves of the same data item by pressing the ENTER key multiple times.

Unlike the other menus, the Arrange Menu is not circular, in that if you are at the bottom (last) menu item and attempt to move down, the display does not move back to the top of the list of menu items. When you are at the top (bottom), the up (down) arrow keys will be ignored. The Arrange Sub-Menu can be exited by pressing the Menu key, which changes the display to the Data Logging Sub-Menu.

The ordering of the data items in the Arrange Sub-Menu determines in which column the data item appears. For example, tag Engine 2 Return, Engine 2 Supply, Engine 1 Supply, and Engine 1 Return (in order), then when the MENU key is pressed to enter the Arrange Sub-Menu, it will appear as shown in 26.

ENG 2 RETURN

ENG 2 SUPPLY

ENG 1 SUPPLY

ENG 1 RETURN

Data Logging Operation

The 154-8105 and 154-8106 Fuel Flow Displays are able to record (log) information at user specified intervals into the memory. This information can be later retrieved using a personal computer. The information is pre-formatted into row/column type of format suitable for importation into a spreadsheet or database program.

Note: Contact Dealer Service Tools for more information and the components necessary to download the datalog from a fuel flow display to a personal computer.

General Codes

Table 17
ERR: LOGGING ACTIVE     This message appears when the user tries to change items that are disallowed during logging (LOGGING ON), such as attempting to clear log memory, or trying to change which items are tagged for logging. This message will appear on the display bottom line.    
ERR: OVERWRITE ON     This message appears if the user attempts to change the logging tag definitions when overwrite is on, and there is existing data in the log memory. This message will appear on the display bottom line.    
-9999.99     This number will be logged in place of a number to indicate that the entry is invalid. The invalid data may be the result of the display not communicating with flowmeter, which can be caused by an incorrect flowmeter ADDRESS NO. keyed into the display or a defective cable.    

Performing a Datalog

  1. Refer to "Measuring Fuel Flow" in the "Operating Instructions" section to set up the display and system connection.

  1. Data logging functions are done while in the Data Logging Sub-Menu. Refer to the Operational Modes section. Next tag the data items desired to be logged in memory. Enter the Tag Sub-Menu through the Data Logging Sub-Menu.

  1. Clear the log memory, if desired, by going to the Data Logging Sub-Menu, scrolling up or down to the CLEAR LOG MEMORY line and pressing the ENTER key and when prompted pressing the F1 key. If the line shows LOG MEMORY IS EMPTY, then the log memory is already cleared. If the log memory is not cleared and a log is performed, then the logged data will be stored in memory just after the data of the last logged data.

  1. Select the Logging Interval (LOG INTRVL), which is how often the user desires the tagged data items to be recorded in memory. Changing the value of the LOG SPAN, LOG INTRVL, or LOG INTRVL UNIT {logging interval unit) will change the value of the other two if the memory of the display would fill before completing the requested datalog (depends on if Loggers Memory was filled, the number of tagged data items, the sampling rate (LOG INTRVL and LOG INTRVL UNIT), and the length of logging (LOG SPAN).

  1. To clear the Grand Total, enter the Main Menu. Scroll up or down to the CLEAR GRAND TOTALS line. Press the ENTER key and when prompted press the F1 key. The display line will still show CLEAR GRAND TOTALS even after clearing the grand totals. The value of the grand total can only be viewed by tagging the grand total, performing a datalog, and then downloading the datalog.

  1. While still in the Data Logging Sub-Menu, scroll up or down to the display line showing MEMORY OVERWRITE. Toggle between memory overwrite OFF or ON by pressing the ENTER key. If it is OFF, then the datalogger will automatically stop logging when memory is full. The logger may be stopped manually at any time by pressing the ENTER key on the display line showing LOGGING OFF. If the MEMORY OVERWRITE is ON, when the LOG SPAN reaches 0.00 (log memory is full) the data logging will continue and the LOG SPAN will be reset back to the initial state when it started the log. This will continue indefinitely and the logging is terminated manually.

    Note: Memory must be cleared before MEMORY OVERWRITE can be turned ON.

  1. Scroll up or down to the DUMP FORMAT IS line. Toggle between TSV (tab separated variable) and CSV (comma-separated variable) using the ENTER key. DUMP FORMAT IS changes the format of the data retrieved from log memory and dumped to a personal computer. It is either separating the variables by tabs (TSV) or commas (CSV). The default is TSV, which is compatible with most spreadsheets.

    Note: The dump format can be changed after logging has been turned ON or when it is finished and the logging is turned OFF.

  1. The fuel flow display is now set up for Data Logging. Turn on the logger by going to the LOGGING OFF line in the Data Logging Sub-Menu and pushing the ENTER key. Logging with start and the displays line will change to show LOGGING ON (note).

  1. Press the MENU key to go to the Main Menu. Scroll up or down to the display line showing TOTALIZER STOPPED and press the ENTER key to restart the totalizer (line will now show TOTALIZER STARTED).

  1. Reset the Averages and Totals now, if desired.

  1. Power to the fuel flow display may be removed and the logged data in memory will be preserved (memory is battery backed). The datalogging setup will remain the same until a new setup is programmed into the display and is retained even if power is removed from the display.

Note: If logging is turned ON, but no data items have been tagged, then the logging will be turned OFF (display line will change from LOGGING ON to LOGGING OFF when the cursor is moved from this line, the display is turned off and then turned back on, or the MENU key is pressed).

Downloading the Logged Data

A personal computer with an available RS232 or RS485 port is necessary to download the logged data. An RS485 to RS232 converter will be required if only an RS232 port is available on the personal computer. Any device used to capture the data must be capable of accepting continuous data at 19,200 baud to a total of approximately one megabyte. Contact CSTG for information on how to interface the fuel flow display and personal computer in order to download the data logged information. The data logged, which is stored inside of the display, is not cleared after a download and will be retained even if power is removed to the display.

  1. Set up the fuel flow display to download the data. Press the PRINT key on the display keypad and the display will show PRINT LOG DATA NOW? and prompts Fl-YES and FSNO. Do not push any other key pads and setup the personal computer to accept the logged file.

    Note: The fuel flow display data logger does not have to be turned off (LOGGING OFF) while downloading to a personal computer. Logging will be suspended automatically while the fuel flow display downloads data to the personal computer and then resumes when the download is complete.

  1. Set up the personal computer to accept the data to be downloaded from the fuel flow display. For a personal computer running Windows95, the HyperTerminal program will be utilized to capture the data file from the fuel flow display and then store it.

  1. When using the HyperTerminal program in Windows95, open the HyperTerminal program by using the Windows95 ... Start. Programs ... Accessories ... HyperTerminal. HyperTerminal menu sequence.

  1. Set up the HyperTerminal by selecting whether the COM1 or COM2 port will be used to capture data on the personal computer.

    1. Type in COM1 Direct for using COM1 port or COM2 Direct for using COM2 port for the name of the new connection. Click on OK.

    1. Click on the down arrow to the right of Connect Using and choose Direct to Com1 or Direct to Com2 depending on whether using the COM 1 or COM2 port.

    1. Choose 19200 for Bits per Second, 8 for Data Bits, None for Parity, 1 for Stop bits, and None for Flow Control. Click on OK to save this setup.

  1. Select the Call pull-down window and then select Disconnect to reset capture before transferring the data file.

  1. Select Transfer on the menu bar of the HyperTerminal and then select submenu item "Capture Text ... ". The HyperTerminal will respond by offering the default file name of CAPTURE.TEXT. Accept this default or choose another file name and directory location. Click on OK when ready to capture the data file. The HyperTerminal program is now waiting for the data file from the fuel flow display.

  1. Press the F1 key on the fuel flow display, which will start the transmission of the formatted ASCII data to the personal computer.

  1. Watch the transfer of the logged data scroll by on the personal computer display. The transfer is complete when END-OF-DATA is seen on the display in real time. Select Transfer on the HyperTerminal menu bar, select sub menu item Capture, and then select submenu item Stopto stop the data capture (delaying the manual termination of the download will increase the amount of extraneous characters stored at the end of the data file).

  1. Information stored inside the display is not cleared after a download. The information is also stored in the personal computer in an ASCII text file and ready for importation into a spreadsheet or it can be sent directly to a printer.

Note: Tab settings may cause the column headers to be slightly misplaced if the file is sent directly to a printer. Column headings will be in the proper position if imported into a spreadsheet. Tab settings may be adjusted inside a word processor and many text editors. Any extraneous characters at the end of the data file may be deleted while in a spreadsheet or word processor.

Note: If the format of the data is changed using a word processor or text editor, the data may not import into a spreadsheet correctly and will require adjustment there. If the user wants to print out the data, it is recommended the data file be imported to a spreadsheet and then print it out.
