Scan Logic Description Digital Voltmeter AN/GSM–64 is basically a closed-loop servo in which a feedback voltage is driven to equal an unknown input voltage. The unknown input voltage is fed through the input attenuator to one side of a nonshorting chopper. all contained in a plug-in oil bath can. the resulting input resistance is 50.

The feedback voltage is fed to the other side of the chopper. The various output voltages for a low input of 0 volt and a high input of 10 volts is shown in the chart below. Figure 10-1 is a simplified schematic diagram of the stepping switch-controlled KelvinVarley divider and the transfer switch circuitry. Two additional levels on the stepping switch provide data to the readout and to the external printer connector (fig. each decade has a low and a high input.

The timing generator controls both the chopper drive and the stepping switch drive. CP’s occur and the decade switch is driven one step at a time until the required condition is met. This flip-flop changes state each time the transfer switch moves. one stepping switch drive pulse is generated. As a result. If the feedback is not equal to. The transfer switch scans the outputs of each decade in proper sequence. This condition is termed a nocompute pulse (CP). Automatic polarity and ranging are accomplished by relays. resulting in CP. in conjunction with the logic circuits.

When the transfer switch connects the high output of a decade to the feedback. D. the scan is completed. the transfer switch first connects the low output of a decade to the feedback. thus. the low output must be equal to. a CP must be generated since an exact null cannot be reached unless the decase switch is advanced one more step.

The range relays are driven by two commutatively coupled flip-flops. the range flip-flops are set to the lowest range condition. the logic is the same for all odd steps. The information contained in table 5–1 can be summed up in the following equation. the odd-even flipflop is even (OE). At the start of a scan. CP will occur. CP's continue until the correct range is reached. a CP will be generated if the polarity relay is in the negative position and a U pulse occurs. the amplifier output will be a U pulse. and the transfer switch will move to position 2 (REF). the output will be a D pulse. no U or D pulse occurs. except step 12. the logic causes a CP to occur and the polarity is changed.

All of the relays are connected as flip-flop loads. At the start of each scan. The first test is for polarity. If the signal is exactly ±10 (or ±100 ) volts. If the polarity is now positive and the signal is over 10 volts. If the polarity relay is in the negative position.

The other ends of the coils are connected to the -15-volt supply. Capacitor C2 is shorted across the primary of isolation transformer T1 for approximately 28 milliseconds. The unknown signal is fed through the input attenuator to one side of the chopper. the chopper transfers C2 in shunt with the primary of T1.

CHAPTER 6
TROUBLESHOOTING

Section I. GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION

WARNING
When troubleshooting the digital voltmeter, be extremely careful of high
voltages.
6-1. General Instructions

Troubleshooting at depot maintenance category
includes all the techniques outlined for organizational maintenance and any special or additional techniques required to isolate a defective
part. Depot localization and isolating techniques
and a troubleshooting chart are given in paragraphs 6-2 through 6–7.
6-2. Organization of Troubleshooting
Procedures

.

a. General. The first step in servicing a defective digital voltmeter is to localize the fault.
Localization means tracing the fault to a defective stage responsible for the abnormal condition. The second step is isolation. Isolation means
the locating of the defective part or parts. Some
defective parts, such as burned-out resistors and
arcing shorted transformers, can often be located
by sight, smell, and hearing; however, most defective parts must be isolated by making voltage
and resistance measurements.
b. Localization and Isolation, Listed below is
a group of tests arranged to reduce unnecessary work and aid in tracing a trouble to a
specific component, In general, the trouble is
traced to a section of the digital voltmeter, and
the faulty component in the section is remedied.
Follow the procedure in the sequence listed
below.
(1) Visual inspection. Visual inspection is
used to locate faults without testing or measuring circuits. The front panel readout, meter
readings, or other visual signs should be observed and an attempt made to localize the fault
to a particular stage.

(2) 0perational tests. Operational tests frequently indicate the general location of trouble.
In many instances, the tests will help in determining the exact nature of the fault. Operational tests are given in paragraphs 3-3 through 3-9.
(3) Localization. The localization procedures applicable to the digital voltmeter are
listed in the troubleshooting chart and should be
used in localizing the trouble to a particular
stage. The troubleshooting chart (para 6-5) lists
symptoms of common troubles and gives (or references ) corrective measures. Such a chart obviously cannot include all trouble symptoms that
may occur. The repairman should use this chart
as a guide in analyzing symptoms that may not
be listed.
(4) Iso!ution. Procedures for isolating troubling are given in paragraph 6-5.
(5) Techniques In performing the localization and isolation procedures, one or more of
the techniques given below may be applied. Apply these techniques only as indicated and observe all cautions.
(a) Voltage and resistance measurements. This equipment is transistorized. When
measuring voltages or resistance, use tape or
sleeving (spaghetti ) to insulate the entire test
prod, except for the extreme tip. A momentary
short can ruin a transistor. Use the same or
equivalent multimeter specified in paragraph
6–3.
CAUTION
Before using any ohmmeter to test
transistors or transistor circuits, check
the open circuit voltage across the ohmmeter test leads. Do not use the ohmmeter if the open circuit voltage exceeds 1.5 volt. Also, since the RXL
range normally connects the ohmmeter
internal battery directly across the test
leads, the comparatively high current
(50 milliampere (ma) or more) may
6-1

Figure 6-1. Digital Voltmeter AN/GSM-64 plug-in board assembly and adjustment
control locations.

damage the transistor under test. As
a general rule, the RXL range of any
ohmmeter should not be used when testing low-powered transistors.
(b) Test points. The digital voltmeter is
equipped with test jacks to f acilitate connection
of test equipment (para 6-3). The test points
should be used whenever possible to avoid needless disassembly of the equipment. These test
points are shown on the schematic diagrams and
on the parts location figures.
(c) Intermittent troubles. In all the tests,
the possibility of intermittent troubles should
6-2

not be overlooked. If present, this type of trouble
often may be made to appear by tapping or jarring the equipment. Make a visual inspection of
the wiring and connections in the equipment.
Minute cracks in printed circuit boards can cause
intermittent operation. A magnifying glass is
often helpful in locating defects in printed circuit boards. Continuity measurements of printed
conductors may be made using the same technique ordinarily used on hidden conventional
wiring; observe ohmmeter precautions discussed
in (2) above.

TM 11-6625-444-15

former is identified by FSN 5950–2561779.
2. Do not connect the test equipment
(other than the multimeter outputs) /directly to a transistor circuit; use a coupling capacitor.
3. Be careful when making test equipment connections so that shorts are not
caused by exposed test equipment connectors. Tape or sleeve (spaghetti) test
prods or clips as necessary to leave as
little exposed as needed o make contact
to the circuitry under test.

6-3. Test Equipment Required

The chart below lists test equipment required
for troubleshooting Digital Voltmeter AN/
GSM-64. The associated technical manuals are
also listed.
