SYSTEM NOTATION (NP, NP+, ...)


Hardware Constitution of NP, NP+, NP++, and Twin
According to system models or customer options installed on the system, a number of system specifications or functions available may differ from system to system; such are:
D Selectable scan times, MA values, FOV dimensions
D Remote Tilt function
D Number of arrays of DAS/detector units, i.e., single or twin DAS/detector subsystem
D ...
However, the HiSpeed series scanners are principally grouped into four, for which the following notations are given
respectively:
NP, NP+, NP++ and Twin
In this Diagnostics manual, these notations NP, NP+, NP++, and Twin are used to describe differences among these
four groups and to make descriptions of this manual read simpler.
(However, Twin is further grouped into two, that is, NP+ Twin and NP++ Twin. In general outline,
NP+ Twin systems are NP/NP+ systems with a twin DAS/detector, and NP++ Twin systems are NP++ systems
with a twin DAS/detector. These notations also will be used when required.)
The following table describes the constitution of the major hardware of NP, NP+, NP++, and Twin.

The rotation number is slightly less than the mechanical Gantry rotation counter located

IQ Performance Tool Status


This tools give us advance notice for IQ performance change.
For the system with V/R 5.5x or later, the two types of warmup scan can be selected:
D Tube Warmup: performs tube several warmup scans. These can achieve 13% case temperature.
D Daily calibration (Warm up): performs conventional tube warmup scans (tube warmup scans:30% case
and calibration scans) plus IQ performance measurement scans. (For detail scan protocol, refer to IQ
performance Measurement scan described below.)
So, whenever the daily calibration is performed, the IQ performance data are collected and analyzed automatically,
and the results are stored in the file, then displayed on the Status column of the IQ Performance Tool Status. The
Information means the date when the status has been determined.
The three types of status are displayed:
Note
The results are stored as a vector file, so that they can also be seen using Scan Analysis, DD file
analysis function. (For mA Smudge and Scan Time Smudge Only, they can not be seen, because
the files can NOT be made.)
The files is stored up to 5MB. In excess of 5MB, the directory of the files will be cleaned up when
executing this tool. Since the vector files of approx. 400 KB per daily calibration are created, 10 days
data can be stored. However calculation in Scan Analysis reduces data to be stored.
D GREEN: displayed when the result is WITHIN allowable specifications. (Also refer to IQ performance tool
specifications.)
D YELLOW: displayed when the result is OUTSIDE OF allowable specifications. There is a possibility to
affect Image Quality. (Also refer to IQ performance tool specifications.)
D RED: displayed when the result is OUTSIDE OF allowable specifications. A serious Image Quality problem might occur. (Also refer to IQ performance tool specifications.)

IQ Performance Tool Service Recommended Action


When the IQ Performance Tool Status turns YELLOW or RED, perform the followings in a periodic maintenance.
When the status turns in Yellow or Red but an IQ issue does not occurs, the urgent action is NOT required.
1.

Check if a customer does not have any IQ problems.

2.

Check the vector file(s) beyond tolerance level that have been gotten by the IQ performance test, using Scan
Analysis. Then detect and resolve problems according to the troubleshooting guide.

3.

Perform the Calibration (Auto Sequence1 calibration). The YELLOW indicators still exist.

4.

Perform Auto CT Number Adjustment to remove the YELLOW indications (changed to all GREEN).

5.

Perform Image Performance Test to check if no problem exists.

6.

Troubleshooting Guide For IQ Performance


D Baseline of this troubleshooting:
Basically air calibration and phantom calibration (Auto Sequence 1) should be finished after YELLOW/
RED flag. And still RED/YELLOW is existed, perform Auto CT Number Adjustment to remove the YELLOW indicators (changed to all GREEN). Then check this list in sequentail order.
After fixing issues, Auto sequence1 calibration and CT# adjustment are recommended to be done again.

DAS output
drift
(AC3,4,5)

Check dd file to see profile. If


the profile has 1channel or 16
channel drop or surge, do the
air scan to check air mean
profile. If there is no clear
irregular drop or surge for the
issue channels in the profile,
the drift of CAM board channel
is suspected.

Check the temperature of the


room is appropriate( not too
cold or too hot). Identify channels which have abnormal drift
and exchange CAM board of
this channel with other CAM
board to confirm if it is really
CAM board problem.

Sometime all thickness has RED or


YELLOW, but
sometime only thin
thickness has RED
or YELLOW.

Detector output drift (AC

First confirm FOV43 air image


and see if it contains clear ring

DAS is OK in the above process. If there is no impact of
CAM board exchange in

two hours. If ring artifact is
disappeared, move to the

weeks.

DAS linearity

Check to scan water 25cm


with
1.5sec/120kV/10mm/170mA/
LFOV and SFOV for 10 times.
If CT# between ROI of center(7 pixel radius) and its outside is within 3 for all 10
slices, it is acceptable and no
action is to be taken. But
some of the scan results exceed this value, the most
probable failure is CAM board.
So first suspect CAM board.

Check dd profile and identify


which part in the profile has
gap. Corresponding CAM
board is to be replaced to
minimize the profile gap.

If CAM boards replacement
doesnt affect the results, the
next possible cause is detector nonlinearity.

1-15 SCAN ANALYSIS


The scan analysis feature allows users to have interactive access to scan files collected on the scanner. Scan data
to be viewed can come from either Patient Scanning or from service mode tools such as Diagnostic Data Collection
or Calibration.
Analysis is divided into three major areas of: SCAN ANALYSIS, dd FILE ANALYSIS, CAL FILE ANALYSIS, and Z
tracking (for Twin ONLY). dd FILE ANALYSIS and CAL FILE ANALYSIS is not yet available for this CT System. Each
major section provides an File List Select interface similar to the Image Works List Select, Image Browser. Analysis
List Select allows you to select the appropriate file of interest.
Any of the normal scan files may be selected for processing within Scan Analysis including Axial, Helical, and Scout
scans. Once the scan data of interest is selected you can select one of several processing options which include:
Update, Scan Header, Cal Vectors, Plot MSD, Plot VVC, and Save Scan.

Definitions within Scan Analysis


D dd File (Diagnostic Data File):
dd files are a result file from some type of operation on the scan data file. dd files are typically some form
of view summed file that may have had some specific type of processing applied to it. For example, the
processing applied to the raw data to calculate the position of the pin in ISO alignment results in a temporary file that is a view summed result that could be saved as a dd file. As long as two dd files have the same
number of data elements in them the two files may be added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided with each
other.
D Means and Standard Deviation File (MSD):
This is usually the result of combining two or more views mathematically which results in Mean Values
for each channel in the views and an associated Standard Deviation for each channel in the views. In essence all of the user selected views in a scan file are summed together resulting in a single master view
that contains the averaged data from all of the views. The mean values represent the average data value
from the channels and the standard deviation values represent the amount of variability for that channels
data values across all of the views. The higher the standard deviation the more the channel output varied
from view to view.
D Scan Header:
This is the information contained within the Scan File that identifies the specific settings in affect when
that scan file was created. The Scan Header includes information at several levels including: Exam, Series, and Scan. Information identifying the technique selections, scan time, acquisition mode, and many
others may be found in the scan header.
D Cal Vectors:
Within Scan Analysis the Cal Vectors are only those vectors contained within the Scan Data File at the
time that the scan was taken.
D VVC (Views vs Channels):
This is a way to graphically represent the data values from each channel for each view of data from the
SDAS as a shade of grey. The display will have the views stacked vertically and the channels arranged
across the display horizontally.

This will calculate a view averaged super view for the selected views and store the results in a separate
file on the systems disk. The display will report the path and filename of the file just created. Once created,
dd File can be viewed or compared with other files to check for specific operating characteristics.
D Plot MSD:
Provides a set of view summed Means and Standard Deviation Plots of a scan file. The plotter is started
to display the means vectors and the standard deviation vectors, computed across the entire scan for each
detector macro row. There will be (4) mean and standard deviation plot sets in the display window.
After Plot MSD is started, a preprocessing option selection window appears:
Offset Correction:
This processing step removes from the scan data, the signal bias introduced by the acquisition
electronics. This operation is performed on a channel by channel basis for each view.
Reference Normalization:
Makes use of unobstructed (not blocked by the patient) detector cells at the end of the detector
to adjust for fluctuations in the xray beam and effects of aperture size and mA. In the case where
the reference channels are blocked, the system uses an estimated value for the processing. The
steps for Reference Normalizing the scan data involves: Offset Correction for the Reference
Channels, Dividing the Offset Corrected Scan Data by the Averaged Reference Channels for
each view.

In the figures that follow, examples of known Tracking plots are shown. Since plots vary from system to system, the
examples shown should be used only as guides. Compare your Systems plots and analyze them relative to the specification shown in each figure. The plots shown are UNFILTERED views, which is the default option when they are
plotted. A 20 point boxcar filter takes the 20 view average and then plots the data.
A value is not considered to be out of specification, unless the limit is exceeded for a sustained interval of 100 views
or more. In the cases where specifications are not given, consider plots informational only.

To use the function Save to File , need to make a directory named data under root. Then after performing Save

dd Math Functions
dd math consists of the following functions:
D Add
D Subtract
D Multiply
D Divide
D Channel to Channel (Ch2Ch) difference
D Ratio of means vs. standard deviation
Perform: add, subtract, multiply, divide, and channel to channel difference operations on dd files. These operations
are only available for dd file types.

Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide


Applies add, subtract, multiply, and divide between vectors in two dd files. The output file is a dd file with one of the
following suffixes:
D .add
D .dif
D .mul
D .rat
Operations can be performed on dd files in View orientation, Channel orientation, RTS orientation, and Cal orientation.
Currently, no dd type restrictions are applied to operations between dd files, as long as the dd vectors have the same
number of elements. If one file has a single vector and the other file has multiple vectors the mathematical operation
will be applied multiple times using the single vector.
Otherwise the mathematical operation will be applied component wise for the number of vectors in each file.

Channel to Channel Difference


Applies the following calculation to the data from the data set(s) in the dd files for View, RTS or Cal orientation.
(X2X1), (X3X2), (X4X3),...,(XnXn1)
Where X is the data value for each channel.
The output is channel to channel dd file with extension: .c2c

Description
Indicates that an image has been processed, and is stable at the VDB video
output.
Indicates that an image in the DASM is being processed and transferred to the
VDB frame buffer. Note that the video image is not available at the output port
during this internal transfer.
This light indicates that the DASMVDB is powered up. If this light does not
illuminate at powerup, you should first check the power cable connections.

CPU

This light indicates that the DASM CPU is active and operating properly. It
flashes continuously (blinks on an off) following powerup.

Powering On
The following sequence occurs in the LEDs when the power switch is turned on:
1.

The Power LED comes on.

2.

The octal SCSI ID flashes briefly. The Least Significant Bit is next to the Power LED. Note that if the SCSI ID
is zero, no LEDs flash.

3.

The three LEDs which represent an octal value flash once and go out.

4.

Once the powerup sequence completes, the DASM CPU LED (second light from left) blinks regularly, indicating
that the CPU is active and functioning normally.

Start Up Sequence
When the DASMVDB interface module is powering up, it performs startup diagnostics and other related actions.
At powerup, the DASM unit performs the following tests:
D EPROM checksum test
D MFP 68901 access test (the Multi Function Peripheral chip controls the serial port, timing, and I/O)
D SCSI register access test
D Static RAM test
D Dynamic RAM test
D DMA test
When the DASM CPU LED blinks continuously at about two flashes per second, the initialization sequence is complete, and the continuous selftest is in progress. The selftest runs until a SCSI command (a write to block 0 on the
DASM) is sent by the host. This test signals an error condition by blinking the CPU, SCSI, and Personal Module Interface LEDs in tandem, continuously.

Start Up Problems
To report diagnostic conditions, the LEDs on the DASMVDB front panel have a corresponding binary presentation.
The illustration 14 shows the value assigned to each LED (CPU, SCSI, Personal Module Interface LEDs).
DASM LED Error Codes
Using LEDs 1, 2, and 4 (CPU, SCSI, Personal Module Interface LEDs), a binary code signals any of the conditions
listed in Table 18. The Power LED is not used to report diagnostic conditions.
The three LEDs permit a combined total of only seven error codes. To overcome this limitation, the codes are defined
as a series of one or more patterns. Each pattern begins with all LEDs flashing briefly, to indicate the start of the number sequence that follows.
For example, to display error code 12 (Failed SCSI Interface Test), the CPU LED displays the first digit (1), stopping
briefly before the SCSI LED displays the second digit (2), as shown in Illustration 15.
The display of each digit lasts approximately four times the duration of the initial binary 7 (that if, the flash of all LEDs).
The patter then repeats. Only the significant digits for each error condition are listed in Table 18.
Note:
The first error stops the startup sequence immediately.

Start Up Sequence
Start Up Sequence
When the DASMLCAM interface module is powering up, it performs startup diagnostics and other related actions.
At powerup, the DASM unit performs the following tests:
D EPROM checksum test
D MFP 68901 access test (the Multi Function Peripheral chip controls the serial port, timing, and I/O)
D SCSI register access test
D Static RAM test
D Dynamic RAM test
D DMA test
When the DASM CPU LED blinks continuously at about two flashes per second, the initialization sequence is complete, and the continuous selftest is in progress. The selftest runs until a SCSI command (a write to block 0 on the
DASM) is sent by the host. This test signals an error condition by blinking the CPU, SCSI, and Personal Module Interface LEDs in tandem, continuously.

Start Up Problems
To report diagnostic conditions, the LEDs on the DASMLCAM front panel have a corresponding binary presentation.
The illustration 16 shows the value assigned to each LED (CPU, SCSI, Personal Module Interface LEDs).
DASM LED Error Codes
Using LEDs 1, 2, and 4 (CPU, SCSI, Personal Module Interface LEDs), a binary code signals any of the conditions
listed in Table 18. The Power LED is not used to report diagnostic conditions.
The three LEDs permit a combined total of only seven error codes. To overcome this limitation, the codes are defined
as a series of one or more patterns. Each pattern begins with all LEDs flashing briefly, to indicate the start of the number sequence that follows.
For example, to display error code 12 (Failed SCSI Interface Test), the CPU LED displays the first digit (1), stopping
briefly before the SCSI LED displays the second digit (2), as shown in Illustration 15.
The display of each digit lasts approximately four times the duration of the initial binary 7 (that if, the flash of all LEDs).
The patter then repeats. Only the significant digits for each error condition are listed in Table 18.
Note:
The first error stops the startup sequence immediately.

4 2 1
From left to right, the lights indicate the following:
D RDY
Image Ready light indicates that an image has been transferred, and is stable at the VDB video output.
D XMIT
Image Transmit light indicates that an image is being transferred from the Common Memory to the VDB
Field Memory. Note that a printable video image is not available during an image transfer.
D PIF
Personality Interface light activity, in the VDB application, coincides with the image transmit function.
D SCSI
This light indicates the host is accessing the DASM via the SCSI bus, such as commands sent or data
received.
D CPU
This light indicates that the DASM CPU is active and operating properly. It flashes continuously ( blinks
on and off) following powerup.
D PWR
Power Light indicates that the DASM is powered. If this light does not illuminate at powerup, you should
first check the power cord connections.

When the DASM IIVDB is powering up, it performs startup diagnostics and other related actions.
At powerup, the DASM Controller performs the following tests:
D EPROM checksum test
D MFP 68901 access test (the Multi Function Peripheral chip controls the serial port, timing, and I/O)
D SCSI register access test
D Static RAM test
D Dynamic RAM test
D DMA test
When the DASM CPU LED blinks continuously at about two flashes per second, the initialization sequence is complete.
If an error occurs, the error condition is reported by blinking the CPU, SCSI, and PIF LEDs in tandem followed by an
error code.

Powering On
The following sequence occurs on the front panels LEDs when the power switch is turned on:
1.

The Power LED lights.

2.

The octal SCSI ID flashes briefly. The Least Significant Bit is next to the Power LED. Note that if the SCSI ID
is zero, no LEDs flash.

3.

The three LEDs flash once and go out.

4.

Once the powerup sequence completes, the DASM CPU LED (second light from right) blinks regularly, indicating that the CPU is active and functioning normally.

D Continuous Mode:
Is the default setting. After executing the startup diagnostic, the resident software will continuously run
the VDB selftest. Selftest will continue until the first SCSI command is received by the DASM.
D Serial Loop Test:
In this mode the VDB tests the RS422 Driver and Receiver. Prior to executing this, a special loopback
connector on the front panel of the VDB, without the loopback connector the test will fail.
The loopback connector is made by simply adding two wires to a 25pin Male D connector: (pin 8 to
pin 9) and (pin 21 to pin 22).
D Single Pass:
The startup diagnostics execute once, as described in 1-3-3-2 Startup Sequence. Please be aware
that when position 0 is open error and other messages encountered during startup diagnostics are directed to the serial port. Otherwise the errors are encoded on the LEDs.
D Single Pass w/Memory:
Is controlled by Bit 2. When open the DASM exercises the entire DRAM during the startup diagnostics.
The Single Pass w/Memory test can take several minutes to complete, this is why it is normally disabled.
D Debug Mode:
When position 1 is open the program jumps to the I/O Monitor when a diagnostic error occurs. The I/O
Monitor gives the basic tools to debug the hardware. Opening positions 0 and 2 allows the technician
access to the startup diagnostic suite via the serial port.

Startup Problem

To report diagnostic conditions, the LEDs on the DASM IIVDB front panel have a corresponding binary representation. The illustration 17 below shows the value assigned to each LED. The section after the figure explains how the
LEDs represent error codes. Note that this sections deals with error codes related to the DASM Controller, where
Section 1-3-3-5, VDB Error Codes, explains the method used to report an error from the VDB diagnostic.

DASM Controller LED Error Codes


Using LEDs 2 and 4, a binary code signals any of the conditions listed in Table 110. The Power light and PIF LEDs
are not used to report diagnostic conditions.
The three LEDs permit a combined total of only seven error codes. To overcome this limitation, the codes are defined
as a series of one or more patterns. Each pattern begins with all LEDs flashing briefly, to indicate the start of the number sequence that follows.
For example, to display error code 12 (Failed SCSI Interface Test), the CPU LED displays the first digit (1), stopping
briefly before the SCSI LED displays the second digit (2), as shown in Illustration 17.

VDB Error Codes

The following sequence is used to signal an error during the VDB portion of the Selftest.
First, all three LEDs blink together for the duration of a single pass. This requires approximately 1015 seconds.
Then the specific error code blinks twice before the next pass begins, with all three LEDs blinking together as before.
The bit pattern of the error codes appears as a series of LEDs being turned on and off. The low order bit is first.
When two LEDs blink together, the bit value is 1.
When only one LED blinks, the bit value is 0.
To see an example of an error code displayed in this way, do the following:
D Remove the loopback connector from the front panel of the DASM IIVDB.
D SW 1 position 0 is closed.
D SW 1 position 1 is open.
D Now cycle the AC power on the DASM
D When the first pass of the DASM selftest has completed, the LED display begins. The expected error
is 5 (RS422 port fail), and the LED sequence is:
Least significant first:
bit 0 = 2 LEDs on = 1 Value 1
bit 1 = 1 LED on = 0
bit 2 = 2 LEDs on = 1 Value 4
bit 3 = 1 LED on =0

When two LEDs blink together, the bit value is 1.
When only one LED blinks, the bit value is 0.
The Selftest runs in continuous mode when SW 1 position 0 is open. A single failure will cause a error code to flash
repreatedly on the LEDs. Although, other errors may occur during testing only the first one is displayed forever.
First all LEDs will blink together several times indicates a problem. Next, the error code is displayed serially, twice
in the two leftmost LEDs.
The pattern is binary and takes 4 blinks for the complete code. When the two LEDs blink together, the bit value is
1, when only blinks the bit is 0. The bit order is low to high.
Record the blink pattern in the number of LEDs blinking, 1 or 2.
Record them RIGHT to LEFT, to make them easier to interpret.

DIAGNOSTIC TESTS

There are three types of software diagnostics tests provided on the O2 workstation. Each is described below:
D PowerOn Tests
D IDE Tests

PowerOn Test
These run automatically on the major hardware components of the workstation each time it is turned on. If the tests
find a faulty part, the LED on the front of the system will be red and there will probably be an error message. See also
Problem Diagnosis (Section 2-1).

IDE Tests
The Interactive Diagnostic Environment (IDE) tests are more comprehensive than the Confidence Tests, and take
longer (as long as 3045 minutes) to run. See Integrated Diagnostic Environment (IDE) Tests on the SBC (O2) (Section 2-5).

RECOVERING FROM SYSTEM CRASH

In most cases, your system will recover from a system crash automatically if you reboot the system.
If, however, you have lost data on your system disk, and you cannot communicate with your system using the mouse
or keyboard, or over the network, follow these instructions. The instructions assume you have a backup tape of your
system that has been made using the System Manager backup tool, or with the /usr/sbin/Backup script. You also need
a CD with your current IRIX operating system level. If you are recovering data from a tape on a remote tape device,
you need to know the hostname, tape device name, and IP address of the remote system.
1.

Use a pen tip or an unwound paper clip to press the RESET button located on the front panel (Illustration 23).

From the System Maintenance menu, choose RECOVER SYSTEM, or type 4 on the keyboard. The System
Recovery Menu appears (Illustration 25).
Illustration 25

If you have a CDROM drive connected to your system and the IRIX CD, click LOCAL CDROM. Then click
ACCEPT to start. Insert the CD when prompted. The system takes five minutes or more to copy the information.
If you don
MOTE DIRECTORY.

5.

When a notifier appears asking you for the remote hostname, type the systems name, a colon (:), and the full
pathname of the CDROM drive, followed by /dist. For example, to access a CDROM drive. On the system
mars, you would type: mars:/CDROM/dist
After everything is copied from the CD to the system disk, you can restore your data from a recent full backup
tape. The backup must be one that has been made using the System Manager backup tool, or with the /usr/sbin/
Backup script.
Tip: If you need to check something on your system during the restore process, you can get a
shell prompt by typing sh at most question prompts.

6.

If you have a local tape device, you see this message:


Restore will be from <tapename> OK? ([Y]es, [N]o): [Y]
tapename is the name of the local tape device.

RECOVERING FROM SYSTEM CRASH (continued)


If you have a remote (network) tape device, when no tape device is found, or when you answered No to the
question in the previous step, you see this message:
Remote or local restore ([r]emote, [l]ocal):
If you answer remote, you have chosen to restore from the network, and you must know the hostname, tape
device name, and IP address of the remote system. You also need to know the IP address of your system. The
IP address, such as 192.0.2.1, always has four components separated by periods.
If you answer local, you have chosen a tape device that is connected to your system, and you are prompted
to enter the name of the tape device.

8.

When you see the following message, remove the CDROM, insert your most recent full backup tape, then press
ENTER.
Insert the first backup tape in the drive, then press <Enter>,
[q]uit (from recovery), [r]estart:
There is a pause while the program retrieves several files from the tape describing the system state at the time
the backup was made. Then you see this message:
Erase /x filesystem and make new one (y,n)? [n]
It prompts you for every file system that was known at the time of the backup. Read the following to decide whether to answer y or n.
If you answer n for no, the system tries to salvage as many files as possible. Then it uses your backup tape
to replace the files it could not salvage. Usually you should answer no, especially if your backup tape is not very
recent. If the file systems were badly damaged, or the backup was from a different level operating system, you
may need to answer yes.
If you answer y for yes, the system erases the file system and copies everything from your backup tape to
the disk. The system loses any information on that file system that you created between now and when you made
your backup tape.

9.

You see this message:


Starting recovery from tape.
After two or three minutes, the names of the files that the system is copying to the disk start scrolling. When the
recovery is complete, you see this message:
Recovery complete, restarting system.
Note
If your backup tapes were old, or you were changing your operating system level, you should reinstall
the operating system from the IRIX CD that came with your system after system recovery is complete. When you see the Startup System notifier, press ESC, or click STOP FOR MAINTENANCE.
Then click Install System Software.

DISABLING THE SYSTEM MAINTENANCE PASSWORD

If you are in the System Maintenance menu, and you choose INSTALL SYSTEM SOFTWARE, RUN DIAGNOSTICS,
RECOVER SYSTEM, or ENTER COMMAND MONITOR, you may be prompted for a password.
If you do not know the password, you can disable it by installing a jumper (a small cap that connects two pins) on the
system board inside the workstation. The system board is located in the system module. To install the jumper, you
must first remove the system module and the PCI tray. Follow these steps:
1.

Turn off the workstation by pressing the power button on the front.

2.

Remove the system module by releasing the lever on the extreme left as you face the rear of the workstation
and sliding the module out. See Section 16 System Module, of OC Tabl of the Component Replacement manual.

3.

Release and remove the PCI tray. See Section 18 PCI Tray, of OC Tabl of the Component Replacement manual.

NOTICE
Before touching any of the components, attach the wrist strap to your wrist and to a metal
part of the chassis.
4.

Remove the jumper from the system board in the location shown in Illustration 26.

You must remove the jumper if you choose to reset the PROM password.

INTEGRATED DIAGNOSTIC ENVIRONMENT (IDE) TESTS ON THE SBC (O2)

The IDE tests on the O2 are stand alone tests that must be run at the boot PROM level.
To run the O2 IDE tests from the OC, the user must first shut down applications. Next, cu into the SBC by opening
a UNIX shell and typing: cu sbc. Once a serial connection has been established, the O2 must be shut down and re
started. Do this by logging into the SBC as root and typing the halt command. Press ENTER when prompted to restart
the SBC. When the system begins startup, a message appears giving the user the option of performing system maintenance. Press ESC at this prompt to get to the System Maintenance Menu. Choose Option 3, Run Diagnostics.
A hardware probe will be conducted and a default set of test scripts will be run automatically. This set takes approximately 10 minutes to execute. Pass and failure information is updated to the screen.
When you run the tests, the following error message may appear. However, ignore this message.

Gantry Processor

RAM Check
1.

The gantry processor (U87) performs read/write checks of its internal RAM, the external RAM (U92), and the
dual port RAM (U77).

2.

If a RAM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRG, LPG, RQG LEDs lighting
on the TGP board.
If no error occurs, the processor proceeds to the following step.

ROM Check
3.

The processor performs a data sum check on addresses 0 BFFF of the external ROM (U112).

4.

If a ROM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRG, LPG, RQG LEDs lighting.
If no error occurs, the LPG LED blinks, and the processor proceeds to the following step.

Gantry Rotation Check and Azimuth Counter Initialization


5.

The gantry processor starts rotating the gantry to check that the operation can be normally performed.
a. If the SYSOFFMNL service switch (SW1) on the TGP board is set to OFF, the system waits until the switch
is set to SYS or MNL, with the RQG and LPG LEDs alternately blinking.
b. If power is not supplied to the servo amplifier, the rotation check is terminated, with the ERRG LED lighting.
If any other abnormal conditions/operations are found, the rotation check is terminated.
To start the rotation check anew, resolve the problems, and power on or reset the TGP board.

6.

The gantry rotates at 15 sec/Rev, and the processor initializes the gantry azimuth counter with the GPLS1 signal.
a. If the initialization of the counter is not performed within 25 sec, the rotation is terminated, with the ERRG LED
lighting.

RAM Check
1.

The table processor (U42) performs read/write checks of its internal RAM, the external RAM (U64), and the dual
port RAM (U48).

2.

If a RAM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRT, LPT, RQT, MNT LEDs
lighting on the TGP board.
If no error occurs, the processor proceeds to the following step.

ROM Check
3.

The processor performs a data sum check on addresses 0 DFFF of the external ROM (U68).

4.

If a ROM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRT, RQT, MNT LEDs lighting.
If no error occurs, the LPT LED blinks, and the processor proceeds to the following step.

Gantry Display and Switch LED Check


5.

The processor sequentially displays test characters (numbers) on the gantry display, and at the same time, sequentially lights gantry panel switch LEDs.
Refer to the Rotational Operation section of Gantry, of the Functional Check / Adjustment manual.

Gantry Tilt and Table Up/down Relay Check


The gantry tilt or table up/down operation is performed by a pump/valve mechanism which is powered by AC 115 V.
This power is conveyed through two relays connected in series on SUB BD. Refer to Illustration 21. With these
connections, if one relay of the two failed (that is, always closed), the power flow can be cut off by the other relay.
This check verifies these relay operations.
6.

The processor closes one relay which is controlled by the enable lines, and verifies that the gantry tilt or table
up/down does not take place.
If the operation takes place, the other relay (direct) is considered to be failed (closed), since any key on the gantry
switch panel is not pressed while the relay (enable) is activated; and an error message is displayed on the operator console (OC).

7.

An LED blinks on the gantry switch panel, and then press the key with the LED blinking.
If the corresponding operation takes place, the other relay (enable) is considered to be failed (closed), since the
processor does not activate the relay (enable) while the key is pressed; and an error message is displayed on
the OC.

The errors described in Table 31 through 353 are detected by the TGP, OGP, or CIF board. When an error occurs,
the error information is sent to the operator console (OC) using the Status communication.

Error with no Error Message


If either of the following errors occur, the microprocessor on the TGP or OGP board are forced to run in an infinite
loop, and no error message is sent to the OC.
D RAM, ROM check error:
These checks are performed during a powerup sequence.

ERROR MESSAGE (continued)

Error Class
The errors detected by the TGP, OGP, or CIF board are either classified as Error Class, or Information Class, according to below:
D Error:
If an error of this Error class occurs during a scan, the scan is aborted, and an error message is displayed
on the OC monitor.
D Information (written as Infor. in Table 31 353):
If an error of this Information class occurs during a scan, the scan will be continued, and an error message
is not displayed on the OC monitor.

Communication via Slip Rings (RS422)


The scan processor on the OGP board communicates with the management processor on the TGP board via slip
rings.
Normally, when one of the two processors receives communication data from the other processor, the receiving processor checks a checksum data, and sends back an ACK message to the sender, if the data is OK; otherwise, sends
back a NACK message. When the sender receives this NACK message, it resends the data. If this repeats three
times (three NACKs), the communication is regarded as an error. If the receiver does not send ACK nor NACK within
a specified time, this also is regarded as an error communication.

INTRODUCTION

This diagnostics section is to introduce the JEDI generator with the following information:
PowerOn diagnostics LED indication.
List all the potential error codes that can be issued by JEDI Generator.
Provide error code explanation, potential cause and recommended action.
List of diagnostics aids and explanation of diagnostics.

2-2

POWER ON DIAGNOSTICS

Refer to theory of operation for poweron sequence. This paragraph in this section is to provide
meaning of boards LED status. The LED display status is offering useful information at a glance to
proceed to error code based troubleshooting. Whenever in doubt, a simple step is to watch the LED
status display on the kV control board, than the Rotation and Heater.

kV control LED status:


During Power On Diagnostics :

kV control board
S0..................S7

   

S0.........................S7


The 8 LEDs (S0...S7) are lit successively in both directions (as indicated by the arrows): the power up
diagnostics are completed, kV control board is up and running.

ERROR REPORTING

Np system only gets the simplified error code from the Jedi generator.
The Np system errorlog adds to the simplified error code the following information :
D error message (refer to the Np system documentation)
D system phase : state of the system when the error occurred. Take care, the system state may be
different to the generator phase (refer to the Np system documentation)
D system time : date and time when the error occurred. Take care, the system time may be different
to the generator time
Whenever a generator error is logged in the system errorlog file and displayed on the operator
console, the Jedi errorlog upload functionality is available to get more detailed information about the

WARNING ERRORS

Warning errors are the result of automated and regular background monitoring for either software
events or voltages threshold overtaking.
Those errors are merely for engineering usage and do not indicate any hardware error failure.
However, as they are logged into the Generator Err_log file, just as the previous list of error, they are
listed here to help error sorting out.
Should too many of them are seen when viewing error log, it is advised to report them via CQA, since
the equipment is still operating.

2-12 NO LOAD HV DIAGNOSTICS

Purpose :
The purpose of this test is to verify that the HV power inverter and HV tank are working properly. The exposure is
taken as in application mode except that no filament drive nor anode rotation is running. Verification is made that
the inverter currents are correctly set and that kV regulation is operating properly. As no filament drive is applied,
no XRays are generated. This test also allow to separate generator from HV cable or xray tube problem by
running it with or without the HV cables plugged on the HV tank.

Prerequisites :
D generator input line in an acceptable range ( 380V10% to 480V+10% for 3phase AC input )
D kV control board alive and running : S0S7 Leds are lit successively or a combination of them blink
D inverter gate_cmd board DC supply present : DS300 neon is lit
D inverter dual snubber board DC supply present : DS1 neon is lit
D Inverter gate command diagnostic passed without failure
D Inverter in short circuit diagnostic passed without failure
D HV Receptacles must be filled with oil if HV cables are removed.
Test type : Manual operation is required.
Sequence :
1. Power on the generator
2. Push the TGP board reset switch, or OGP board reset switch.
3. Start the diagnostic and verify :
error reported on the operator console
inverter gate_cmd board Leds DS101, DS 102, DS201, DS202 are lit : IGBTs gate drive supply
is working properly
4. Select kV (default = 80) and exp.time (default = 1s).
5. Press the exposure switch
6. During the exposure, verify :
error reported on the operator console
7. Release the exposure switch
8. Power off the generator

ERROR REPORTING
NP Generator Error Reporting

Np system only gets the simplified error code from the Jedi Generator.
The Np system errorlog adds to the simplified error code the following information:
D error message (refer to the Np system documentation)
D system phase : state of the system when the error occurred. Take care, the system state is different of
the Generator phase (refer to the Np system documentation)
D system time : date and time when the error occurred. Take care, the system time is different of the Generator time
Whenever a Generator error is logged in the system errorlog file and displayed on the operator console, the Jedi errorlog upload functionality is available to get more detailed information about the error.
This function must be performed from the operator console.
The simplified error code must be used to find the Jedi error code in the Jedi errorlog file.
Having these two information, look at the Jedi troubleshooting table to find the FRU to replace.
Error codes can also be read by connecting the service laptop.

* Note to the error 30 0324H:


The generator sends only one message of error for all the spits (0324H) at the end of the exposure.
During the same exposure we may have different kind of spits.
In the data of this error we can distinguish between the different spits:
1: Spit in anode side
2: Spit in cathode side
4: Spit in both sides
8: kV regulation error.
For a exposure with anode and both sides spit, the data will be 5.
These data can be displayed in the OC in decimal or in hexadecimal base.

WARNING ERRORS

Warning errors are the result of automated and regular background monitoring for either software events or voltages
threshold overtaking.
Those errors are merely for engineering usage and do not indicate any hardware error failure.
However, as they are logged into the Generator Err_log file, just as the previous list of error, they are listed here to
help error sorting out.
Should too many of them are seen when viewing error log, it is advised to report them via CQA, since the equipment
is still operating.

POWER ON DIAGNOSTICS

Refer to theory of operation for poweron sequence. This paragraph in this section is to provide
meaning of boards LED status. The LED display status is offering useful information at a glance to
proceed to error code based troubleshooting. Whenever in doubt, a simple step is to watch the LED
status display on the kV control board, than the Rotation and Heater.

kV control LED status:


During Power On Diagnostics :

kV control board

ERROR REPORTING
NP Generator Error Reporting

Np system only gets the simplified error code from the Jedi Generator.
The Np system errorlog adds to the simplified error code the following information:
D error message (refer to the Np system documentation)
D system phase : state of the system when the error occurred. Take care, the system state is different of
the Generator phase (refer to the Np system documentation)
D system time : date and time when the error occurred. Take care, the system time is different of the Generator time
Whenever a Generator error is logged in the system errorlog file and displayed on the operator console, the Jedi errorlog upload functionality is available to get more detailed information about the error.
This function must be performed from the operator console.
The simplified error code must be used to find the Jedi error code in the Jedi errorlog file.
Having these two information, look at the Jedi troubleshooting table to find the FRU to replace.
Error codes can also be read by connecting the service laptop.

* Note to the error 30 0324H:


The generator sends only one message of error for all the spits (0324H) at the end of the exposure.
During the same exposure we may have different kind of spits.
In the data of this error we can distinguish between the different spits:
1: Spit in anode side
2: Spit in cathode side
4: Spit in both sides
8: kV regulation error.
For a exposure with anode and both sides spit, the data will be 5.
These data can be displayed in the OC in decimal or in hexadecimal base.

WARNING ERRORS

Warning errors are the result of automated and regular background monitoring for either software events or voltages
threshold overtaking.
Those errors are merely for engineering usage and do not indicate any hardware error failure.
However, as they are logged into the Generator Err_log file, just as the previous list of error, they are listed here to
help error sorting out.
Should too many of them are seen when viewing error log, it is advised to report them via CQA, since the equipment
is still operating.

4-10-3 No Load HV Diagnostic without Anode Rotation nor Filament Heating
Purpose :
The purpose of this test is to verify that the HV power inverter and HV tank are working properly. The exposure is taken
as in application mode except that no filament drive nor anode rotation is running. Verification is made that the inverter
currents are correctly set and that kV regulation is operating properly. As no filament drive is applied, no XRays are
generated.
This test also allow to separate Generator from HV cable or xray tube problem by running it with or without the HV
cables plugged on the HV tank. (*)

Prerequisites :
D Generator input line in an acceptable range ( 380V10% to 480V+10% for 3phase AC input )
D kV control board alive and running : S0S7 Leds are lit successively or a combination of them blink
D inverter gate_cmd board DC supply present : DS300 neon is lit
D inverter dual snubber board DC supply present : DS1 neon is lit
D Inverter gate command diagnostic passed without failure
D Inverter in short circuit diagnostic passed without failure
D (*) HV receptacles must be filled with oil if HV cables are removed.

Test type : Manual operation is required.

CLASS 1 EQUIPMENT
Any permanently installed equipment containing operator or patient accessible surfaces must provide backup protection against electric shock,in case the BASIC INSULATION fails. In addition to BASIC INSULATION,Class1 equipment contains a direct connection to a PROTECTIVE(EARTH) CONDUCTOR which prevents shocks when a person
touches a broken piece of equipment or touches two different equipment surfaces simultaneously.

TYPE B EQUIPMENT
CLASS I, II, or III EQUIPMENT or EQUIPMENT with INTERNAL ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCES provide an adequate degree of protection against electric shock arising from (allowable) LEAKAGE CURRENTS or a breakdown
in the reliability of the protective earth connection.

ORDINARY EQUIPMENT
Enclosed EQUIPMENT without protection against the ingress of water.

OPERATION 0f EQUIPMENT
CONTINUOUS OPERATION WITH INTERMITTENT LOADING.
Operation in which EQUIPMENT is connected continuously to the SUPPLY MAINS. The stated permissible loading
time is so short that the long term onload operating temperature is not attained. The ensuing interval in loading is,
however, not sufficiently long for cooling down to the long term noload operating temperature.
EQUIPMENT not suitable for use in the presence of a FLAMMABLE ANESTHETIC MIXTURE WITH AIR or WITH
OXYGEN or NITROUS OXIDE

CLEANING
The ProSpeed S series system is NOT WATERPROOF. It is NOT designed to protect internal components against
the ingress of liquids.Clean external system surfaces(Gantry,table,consoles and accessories)with a soft cloth dipped
in hot water and wrung DAMP/DRY. (NOT dripping!) IF NECESSARY, use only mild (dish washing liquid) soap to remove dirt.

NOTICE
Avoid damage to equipment! Some spray and wipecleaners etch and permanently cloud
clear plastic surfaces!! Use only warm water and mild liquid soap to clean surfaces.
