MASTERLOAD II™

MASTERLOAD II™
Electronic Meter Controller for Aircraft Refuelling Vehicles
The Avery-Hardoll MASTERLOAD II™ is a versatile
micro processor based electronic controller. It is
an intrinsically safe system that is ideal for use in
Category 2 hazardous areas and is comprised of a
pulse transmitter mounted on the meter, a display
unit giving readouts of batch volume, flow rate and
a totaliser.

Features
• Accurate, dynamic meter calibration
• Volume to weight conversion.
• Temperature compensation (option)
• Two-way data interchange to cab mounted data
capture systems
• Interface to deadman system
• Interface to accessories with 4-20 mA output
• Flexible installation

General Information
The MASTERLOAD II™ is a microprocessor-based electronic meter controller. The system consists of a
pulse transmitter (mounted on the meter), a display unit, and a power supply unit. A platinum resistance
thermometer (PRT), printers, and any additional displays are optional and available. All MASTERLOAD II
components are intrinsically safe and ideal for use in Category 2 hazardous areas.
Displays of batch delivery, rate of flow and totaliser are given on three large liquid crystal displays that
provide readouts of batch volume, flow rate and the totaliser. These displays can be easily configured to
show alternative values such as temperature compensated volume and volume to weight conversions.
Additional displays can show repeat or supplementary information at other convenient locations on the
refuelling vehicle.

Dynamic Calibration at all flow rates


MASTERLOAD II™ provides accurate
error correction across the entire
flow range.
Conventional meters are calibrated
at only one flow rate - generally at
100% flow, despite the reality that
meters operate at a variety of flow
rates.
MASTERLOAD II calibration is
corrected at all flow rates to provide
the highest level of accuracy. With
a choice of 1, 2, 4 or 8 calibration
points across the full flow range - the
system allows the user the flexibility
to configure each MASTERLOAD
II to suit the requirements of their
own application. It performs a flow
curve fitting exercise to provide the
required correction.

Additional Features
TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION
An add-on option that provides a temperature display. Using a platinum resistance thermometer (PRT), the display may
be configured to show product temperature or mean batch temperature. Alternatively, full temperature correction to
standard temperature or to the IP/ASTM tables 53 and 54 may be configured.

VOLUME TO WEIGHT CONVERSION


Provides a reading in weight. Available as either a simple manually entered density figure for low cost batch conversion
or a dynamic input from an in-line densitometer which when linked to temperature correction offers the highest level
of accuracy.

DATA COMMUNICATION to RS422 SPECIFICATION


Offers comprehensive two way data communication between the meters and a variety of vehicle systems allowing
data flow from the meter to the system and user input passed back to the meter. Approved to EN ISO 6551-1995 level
A, Masterload offers the highest level of data security available.

AUTOMATIC CALIBRATION
When calibrated against a masterload reference meter. A simple infra-red connection links any Masterload meter to
a Masterload reference meter. This allows calibration to be carried out completely automatically thus reducing down
time, volume of product passed and the potential for human error. Calibration certificates are computer generated to
the IP or customer’s own specification.

DEADMAN INTERFACE
The power supply unit provides a permanent signal to the deadman circuit. If an error occurs, the signal is removed
and the deadman shuts the fuelling off.
