SAFETY SUMMARY
The following are general safety precautions that personnel must understand and apply during operation
and maintenance.

KEEP AWAY FROM LIVE CIRCUITS
Operating personnel must observe safety regulations at all times. Do not replace components or make
adjustments inside the equipment with high voltage present. Under certain conditions, dangerous
potentials may exist when the power control is in the OFF position. To avoid injury, remove power and
discharge and ground a circuit before touching it.

DO NOT SERVICE OR ADJUST ALONE
Under no circumstances should any person reach into the enclosure for the purpose of servicing or
adjusting the equipment except in the presence of someone who is capable of rendering aid.

RESUSCITATION
Personnel working with or near high voltages should be familiar with modern methods of resuscitation.

WARNING
Personnel must wear safety goggles when destroying the I R lamp assembly to prevent eye damage or loss
of sight.
The lamp bulb in the I R source is pressurized to about 215 psi. Safety goggles shall be worn and a
protective shield for the body (such as plexiglass panel) shall be used whenever disassembly beyond the
filter retainers (i.e., within the housing) is necessary. If lamp bulb is to be handled, light gloves shall be
worn. Failed bulbs shall be disposed of by enclosing them within a thick plastic bag before breaking
with a tool with a fIat surface such as a shovel. Disposal techniques similar to those for cathode ray
tubes are recommended.

The TARGET SOURCE houses/cools the Xenon lamp & provides optical filtering for the radiated light ALWAYS USE E12 & E13 FOR GROUND CONNECTION o BEFORE ANY ELECTRICAL TESTING test all cables for continuity between appropriate pins for shorts between adjacent pins 0 TO OBSERVE WAVE-FORMS use Tektronix 422 oscilloscope or equivalent use a compensated probe 0 FOR DC VOLTAGE MEASUREMENT & CONTINUITY CHECKS use Fluke Digital Multimeter or equivalent • IF ANY TEST FAILS TO FIND FAULTY COMPONENT look for circuit wiring “OPENS” look for circuit wiring ERRORS look for circuit wiring “SHORTS” • A FAILURE NOT UNCOVERED BY INSTRUCTIONS (during testing) is cause to continue the test series (if possible) as the failure is likely located by a later test • VOLTAGE READINGS ARE TO GROUND 2-2 • ALL RESISTANCE VALUES ARE IN OHMS .TM 9-6920-483-34-2 TO perform repairs on the TARGET SOURCE (TS) & the POWER SUPPLY MODULATOR (PSM) YOU need to understand each unit’s purpose & the functions it provides.

26V power cable leads 2-3 . SECOND determine those basic functions not operating normally.TM 9-6920-483-34-2 The POWER SUPPLY MODULATOR provides cooling for itself provides the lamp with regulated/modulated power and its monitoring & with controlled boost voltage for starting has a DC-to-DC converter has a modulation and power control card has current and voltage control & switching for lamp starting arc stabilizing & normal operation. THIRD isolate the failed component by checking the operation of all minor circuit functions contributing to the faulty basic function. GENERAL STRATEGY FIRST isolate the problem to the TARGET SOURCE(TS) or POWER SUPPLY MODULATOR(PSM) IF BOTH ARE FAULTY .repair the PSM first.
