Introduction

The overfill prevention system prevents the maximum filling level of a compartment of a tank-vehicle

from being exceeded by interrupting the filling operation on the loading site.

It is not the function of an overfill prevention system to prevent volume or weight overloading. The

function of the overfill prevention system is the final means of containing the loaded product within a

compartment and preventing a dangerous condition. It is therefore of critical importance that all

components have a high degree of reliability and that all European gantries provide a compatible

system with the tank-vehicles.

Not all the components of an overfill prevention system are necessarily supplied by one manufacturer

but may include cross-compatible parts supplied by different manufacturers/suppliers. However, cross-

compatibility does not mean interchangeability.

— fail safe testing.
7.2.2 Performance tests

Performance tests shall be conducted as outlined in Annex A (Tables A.11 to A.15).

7.2.3 Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) test

The sensor and the overfill prevention controller shall be tested separately, and in addition in a

simulated installation according to:
— EN 61000-6-4 for emission;
— Performance Criterion A according to EN 61000-4-3 for immunity.
7.2.4 Fail safe testing

The fail safe operation of the overfill prevention system shall be verified as follows:

— failure of any single component, in short circuit or open circuit state, in the controller or in the

sensor shall result in non-permissive signal or correct operation of the overfill prevention system;

this may be verified by conducting a test or by conducting a circuit analysis;

— with the exception of the diagnostic line any opens or shorts in wiring to the sensors shall result in

non-permissive signal ;
— power supply failure shall result in a non-permissive signal;

— failure of any functional component of a compatible sensor shall result in non-permissive signal or

correct operation of the system; this may be verified by conducting a test or conducting a design

analysis.
