RS485 Wiring Rules for AdaptMAC and SCU and Solenoids * AdaptMAC and SCU Power input: All DC negative must be commoned together (same potential), even if running off Traco DC/DC converter (primary and secondary DC negative linked) * The Solenoids sh...
To change the K Factor (aka scale factor) of a meter pulser, you must be at the SCU touchpad and follow the below instructions. The below assumes two bowsers with K factors of 63.2 each. 1. Enter Supervisor Mode by hitting the "Log" button twice and th...
To change the SCU Idle Timeout (aka No Flow or No Work Timeout), you must be at the SCU touchpad and follow the below instructions. [Taken from "AdaptFMS MCU/SCU Advanced Field Operations.pdf"] PLEASE NOTE THE LAST STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT!! 1. Enter S...
NOTE: The below does not apply to AdaptMACs. It only applies to MCUs (all versions). When you edit a meter (especially "Comms Method" and "Meter Type") make sure that the MCU and SCU are power cycled after the change has been successfully received at th...
Remember that the SCU ID in the Web App must not have leading zeros but when you set the FPID at the SCU - leave the leading zero on the third number (this is the 'bus' number). The symptom of an incorrect setup is that all the equipment, users and produc...
In-field MCU Setup - Calibration Menu Only. Written for SCU firmware version 2.14 and MCU version 3.76 IMPORTANT NOTES -- THE LAST STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT - if do not perform this step, your changes will be lost in the sands of time. -- For some menu ...
The symptom is numbered, the troubleshooting steps are alphabetised. 1. SCU touchscreen Self Test counts down to zero on reboot. This generally means that the MCU and SCU have no working RS485 serial comms. a. VNC into the MCU, click on the SCU tab in...
One Meter, Two Outputs Before getting rid of the pulser switchover relays, you need to ensure that the "Is Light Vehicle" checkbox is selected for all light vehicles in AdaptIQ. Add an AdaptIO (Usually AdaptIO Output 1 is set to Low Flow and AdaptIO O...
The SCU will ask for the supervisor code if: 1. An operator manually enters a vehicle FieldID but Manual Authorisation has been disabled on the MCU/SCU. You will have to go into the scu config screen (Button C for Cal) and enable manual entry. 2. Th...
The SCU can read up to 500 pulses per second (30,000 per minute). If you have a pulse transmitter with a high K factor on a high volume meter, the SCU will read accurately for a while and then 'slow down' as this limit is reached. As an example: The T...
One can set the SCU NoWorkTimeout remotely: Does not work on MCU version greater than 3.10 - has to be done locally using Supervisor Mode 1. Quit the MCU app (File menu -> Exit). 2. Edit the SCU.xml file in the Database folder and change the NoWorkTi...
FluidIntel utilises a Veeder-Root 7671 solid state pulse transmitter for some installations. The pulser is the aluminum housing with the screw cover usually on top of a positive displacement flow meter. This cover is normally tight, but it will unscrew. ...
