Veeder-Root has released a new optional In-Station Diagnostics (ISD) software update that is applicable to ISD monitored facilities in California. This optional software update to TLS-350 software version 336.02 and ISD Version 1.06 (Balance) or 1.07 (Assist) is due to the expiration of a California Air Resources Board (CARB) provided Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery (ORVR) Penetration Table that is a component of Veeder-Root’s ISD software. The ISD ORVR Penetration Table provides annual estimates of ORVR vehicle percentages at fueling facilities. The current ORVR Penetration Table that is being utilized by Veeder-Root’s ISD system software expired on December 31, 2021. Without a software update to the ORVR Penetration Table, on January 1, 2022, ISD monitored Fueling Positions (FPs) could post NO TEST(N) results on ISD Daily Reports and ISD Monthly Reports.
Enable High ORVR Option
Due to the expiration of the existing ORVR Penetration Table, an alternative procedure can be used in lieu of updating the ISD software. The NO TEST results described above can be avoided, if the ISD system setting ACCEPT HIGH ORVR is programmed to ENABLED. This setting is typically used for sites which have higher ORVR percentage dispensing than estimated by the ORVR Penetration Table. When ACCEPT HIGH ORVR is set to ENABLED, the system ISD Fueling Position Warnings and Alarms will still occur, and the Collection Results and Alarms will still be posted.
Note: Without the optional ISD software upgrade or the ACCEPT HIGH ORVR programming option, Fueling Position Collection Tests identified with NO TEST(N) are valid ISD Fueling Position Collection results.
This optional software upgrade is not required by CARB or Veeder-Root. This alternative setting of the system can be used until facilities have an opportunity to update their TLS-350 ISD software. To lessen the impact to facilities we recommend that this optional upgrade occur during the next required annual inspection.
