• PGA 02 FLOW RATE HIGH DURING SU IT CIRCUIT VERIFICATION CHECK
(UNEXPLA INED ANOMALY)
DISCUSSION:
• 02 FLOW RATE REMAINED GREATER THAN 0.8 LB/HR FOR APPROXIMATELY SIX MINUTES
• CORRECTED APPARENTLY BY CREW MOVEMENT DUR I NG TROUBLESHOOTI NG
• CHECK REPEATED AND RESULTS WERE NORMAL
• ALL THREE SU ITS AND UNMANNED SU IT C I RCU IT CHECKED AND NO LEAK DETECTED
• BACKUP CREW CHECKS DURING SECOND CHAMBER RUN WERE NORMAL
MOST PROBABLE SOURCE I SEITHER SU IT, SUIT CONNECTOR OR SU IT C I RCU IT RETURN

CONCLUS ION:
• LEAKAGE CORRECTED--SUITS AND SUIT CIRCUIT VERIFIED AND WILL BE REVERIFIED

During the PGA verification check prior to decompressing the cabin,
the 02 flow rate did not stabilize below 0.8 Ib/hour as required.
The flow rate continued at upper limits for a period of approx. 6 min.
after suit circuit pressure This was considered an
abnormal length of. time based on prior PGA verif.ications. Real time
troubleshooting consisted of isolat10n of individual crewmembers f.rom
the suit circuit.. As "CP" stood up to isolate ItACII (at Panel 301) the
02 flow rat:e dropped from upper limits to O. 7 and upon positioning
the suit tlow valve to rlOFFn the flow rate went to upper (as
expected) and 23 seconds later the 02 flow rate began dropping from
upper limits. Upon positioning the suit flow valve to "Full Flow" the
flow rate had dropped to 0.5 lb/hr and continued to lower limits
( < .21 Ib/hr). The flow rate remained below 0.4 Ib/hr for the next
7 minutes at which time the suit loop was depressurized.

included wiggling the umbilicals at the panel connections also failed to

.'\1 though the commander's suit leakage was slightly out of specification
(150 seem max.). the indicated leakages were insufficient to have caused
the problem. Additional test results were within specification and manned
sui t tests also failed to identify an).' excessive l(>akage.
Other possible leakage sources, the redundant flappers 1n t.he suit circuit
return check valves, were also considered, since thpse valves on previous
spacecraft have occasionally exhibi ted leakage at low del tao pressur4i!'s.
history of the flapper valves on CSM III has shown no tendency for
leakage and the results of the several tests (including those where the
manual valve was not cycled) would seem to di scount the possibility of this
item as thp cause. The suit circuit integrity check during the backup
crew's chamber run was satisfactory and was accomplished
cycling the suit circuit air return valve. l\'ith an apparently greater
openin9 of the direct 02 valve to assist the pressurization, the time from
start to automatic decrease in the 02 flow was less than 3-1/2 minutes.
Al though the source of the problem was not identified, the most likely
cause is believed to be a leak in the suit(s} or connectors or return
check valve flappers which corrected itself and was not repeatable. Suit.
leakage will be checked again prior to launch and reseating of the flappers
can be accomplished by cycling the valve at an imposed delta pressure.
The present suits and spacecraft suit loop were judged to be acceptable
for flight and the discrepancy wa6 as an unexplained anomaly.

of recelved signal stren9th as. did the Ot191nal -Jlit:ch of Ij-6-74.
The cause of the problem was not lo':ated positively through trouble-
shooting or analysis. Since circuit protection devices and stringent
non-flammability requirem('nts preclude jeopardizing safety, no
further troubleshootin9 was done. Close scrutiny was maintained
during the remaining testing for recurrence of the anomaly (n{"ver
duplicated) •
Analysis of the current and voltage traces indicated that the
was in a dioded load. Possible failure mechanisms were studied,
including various t.ypes of wire shorts, load failures,,- .nalfunction
of a component within a load and failures in out.put GSE connected to
the vehicle. Analysis of these failure condi tion5 indicated the most
probable cause was the failure of a component inside a load,
specifi\:ally a filter capacitor since all loads operated normally
after t!1e incident..
In addition to non-dioden loads, the eliMinated all loads
with current-limiting at input. Circuit line resistance
calculat.ions were performed on the remain!.ng cireui ts and all loads
with a line resist.ance t.oo great to permit the obser\,'ed magnitude
of t.he short were eliminated. The remaining loads were analyzed for
suspect components 'that. could fail without causing loss or mal.!unction
o£ the load (i.e., £ilter5). This resulted in identification of 6
potential loads, includin9 t.he ATS-6 power ampli£ier.

actuated thp experiment power switch instead of the experiment freezer
power switch (adjacent to each other on the experim("nt). lnquiry into
the possibility of this having occurred at the t;me of the anomaly was
made and a comparison of the Bus B current data at the time of the anomaly
and the time of inadve;:tcnt SWl t.:hing was conducted. T!1e data indicated
no evidence of inadvertent swit ... hin9 at tiroe of the anomaly. Howl?vpr,
wi th only on (major portion of experiment power comes from MNA) the
current drain is relatively negligible and pasi tive indication of proper
or inadvertent switching would probably not be seen ..
The possible failure mpchanisms are: (1) inadvertent operation of thp
wrong switch, (2) intermittent failure of vehicle wirin9 and (3) inteor-
mi ttent. failure in the freezer circuitry or an isolated failure of the
freezer power switch.
The most probable causes are considered to be an isolated failure of
the freezer power switch to actuate properly, or, to be placed positi ...·"'ty
overcenter in the ON position.

ATS-6 pOWE'r amplifh·r testlng 'lt KSC indicated that power a."rlifier RF'
outputs did not full power when on. Time
deLa)' from turn-on to full po"'er out ranged from a fE'W seconds to over one
minute. The- problem was detecte-d on both I'A No.1 and PA No.;,;. In all
cases, th£> probl('m either cured it.self or cured by switching mode or
recycling p(w1er 5wi tch. The condi tion appear(>d to progn"'ssi vf'ly improve
with time, i.e., it became more difficult to mnke the anomaly occur.
Initial circuit analysis and data review suggested the following possible
causes:
a. Hangup in coax transfer switch
b. Hangup in relay K-I in panel 230
c. Faulty power control relays in select box
d. Problem within the power amp itself
The coax transfer switch was changed OUt. The problem recurred, although
at a lesser frequency. Instrumentation was installed to monitor commands
to coax transfer switch and problem recurred with normal commands.
Instrumentation was installed to monitor input DC power and RF drive
as We'll as RF' output.. The turn-on anomaly was observed twice wit.h
normal OC power and RF drive inputs ..
Both power amplifiers .....ere removed from sic and return{>d to vendor.
Extensive analysis and testing was performed at vt?ndor and at JSC on
the units removed from the sic and on {>nQineerioQ models. The problem
could not be duplicated and analysis did not disclose any desi9n fratules
that could explain the anomaly.
An engineeriOf:;J unit and ·[light power amplifier SN 005 wert" sent to KSC
and installed in the sic. Extensive testin9 could not duplicate the
problem •
Flight power amplifiers SN 006 and SN 004 were received at KSC, installed
for flight and satisfactol·ily tested during TCP K-8241. The anomaly
did not repeat.
Following this testing in K-8241, the power amplifiers were returned to the
vendor a second time for resolder modifica.tion and rett"st.
It is concluded that the ATS-6 power amplifiers are acceptable for flight.
In event the turn-on problem should ocCur during the mission, it can be
hv rvrJino the DC Dower switch or bv switching to other amp_

"Crew Alert" light in the Panel 2 matrix had been dpoctivated
by cutting and stowing the ground return wire •
Ifowevpr. the "Crew Alert" light ""'·as reported on durin9 status
following CtW system activation on 10-31-74. Prior to this time, C&W
was powered down becfolse tne ""·as cleared for pressure operations.
AlthouCJh light had been covered with Cr. blank decal. one corner of
the decal was turned up exposing a small ar('"a of the light.
After consulting with the sea lnvolved, on 11-1-74, an tOR was initiated
on 11-5-74. The ars tape monitored on 11-4 and it indicated that
the identification of the light being on was very po,itive.
In1 tiai troubleshooting consisted of moni toring the C('W system periodicall)J
to determine if the ljght would agajn illuminate. The light did not
illuminate again. Therefore. the nature of the problem was one of an
intermittent ground either in the SC or the C34-b95 GSE (includin9
cabling to the C34-b95).
The cabling to the GSE was Megger checked and showed no shorts. The crew
alert circuit was functionally by applyin9 a 9round on the line
90in9 to the C34-b95. During this procedure, the SC and rJ.", C34-b95 GSE
performed satisfactorily. indicatin9 that the intermittent short, if it
was in the SC or GSE electronics, did not permanently affect the
electronic components involved.
SC panels were removed and the wire and wire harness involved in the
circuit from Panel 2 over to the GSE breakout cable was inspected.
This was accomplished on TPS SC 111-SC-D29. Additionally, the PanelS
and Panel 3 area was inspected (after Panel 3, 4, 5, b, and Ib removal)
throu9hout the wire run from the origin of the crew alert li9ht
(Panel 230) over to the caution and warning detection unit. No evidence
of damage to the wiring was found anywhere in the circuit. 7he crew
alert wire was then terminated at the caution and warning
unit on TPS SC 111-SC-025. This the wire connected to the crew
alert light contact.
Since no source of the could be found in the SC or GSE
cables, it was decided to remove the C&W matrix assy frOD Panel 2 for
analysis. Additionally, the event card in the C34-b95 GSE was removed
for analysis. No discrepancies were found in either the GSE event card
or C&W matrix assy.
Finally, C&W crew alert channel into the C&W detection unit was
connected VGP on TPS SC 111-SC-032 to preclude any possible master
alarms due to voltage pickup_

or isolated.
Previouily in the test sequence, the timer had reset as required
with in.tiation of the Lift-Off si9nal on two separate occasions.
An abort si9nal from the MESC Logic A was enabled; however,
the tim2r failed to reset as required but instead continued to count.
Verifir.ition the MESC had operated properly and sent the signal

abort s19na1 from the MESC Logic Circuit B was sent and the

Since no discrepancy or explanation for the anomaly could be found,
timer was removed from Panel 1 and another timer installed.
The timer currently installed passed a functional test prior to
inst3l1ation and will be in the vehicle.
1he timer is Criticality III. The failure of the timer to reset with
the initiation of an abort signal has no slgnificant effect on the
mission.. The timer is normally operating In a countdown mode durin9
prelaunch and is then reset to all zeros and counts up when a lift-off
signal is received. The initiation of an provides an overridino
command to the to reset to all zeros and count up. Should a
lift-off and an abort 5i9nal be received very close tOQether, it is

Initial discrepancy occurred at 08:58:31 E on 4-7-75 during power-up
for TCP K-OOOS ..
At this tiMe, AC start command for Supply
No. 3 was ex(!-cuted from the ACE Control Room. The powl"r supply
failed to come on.
Immediate troubleshooting disclosed that signal did get to LC39 at
as far as to energize 'the fan circuits in the Cl4-48l.
A facility power switching action had occurred in the same time frame
but was verified to been completed approximately 20 minutes bef"ore
the
The AC start circuitry was instrumented with VC»oIls and was monitored from
4-10-75 thru 4-21-75 during all siC power-up exercised.
The discrepancy
did not repeat •
Addi t.ional troubleshooting investigated all cabling and patches in the
suspect circuitry but disclosed no interaittent operation.
Circuit review and troubleshooting data indicate t.he following:
1.
The problem is definitely isolated to GSE and is in no
way associated with SC III wiring or equipment..
2.
The problem if it recurs is associat.ed only with power-up
sequence. Once the systea is ac·tivated, possible impact to
launch is negligible since tinal power-up occurs approxiaately
one week before launch.
3_ Most probable cause is contact fila on relay{s) A3K3, A3KS,
A3K8 in the C14-481.

fire extinguisher duE' to the nature 119 mission, was
rescue, and charging of thp unit was witt:helc1 ppnding of
a rescue mission.
Wi th respect to a OM spare, th("re are pre'sf'ntly two uncharged uni ts at
Southwest Research Institut.,. The installation schedule for the
OM fire extinguisher (6-24-75) allows 5ufficif'nt recycle for charoe
and shipment of a spare unit from to KSC in the event damage should
occur. Charge and shipmpnt tim'" would b(> approximatf"ly five days. Based
on this turnaround time, a spare is not n .. qui r£'d at KSC for DM-2.
to a CM spare, only one uncharQPd unit is left in the inven-
tory at SWRI. Due to the installation scheduh. of tile CM unit, 5uff"icier.t
recycle time is not available to charge and ship an extinguisher from
SWRI to KSC.
A second charged CM unit is presently at KSC. That extinguisher was
charged to support thp CSM 119 lightning ":('st and has a birth date of
7-22-74. Due to extinguisher age life of one year. the unit's service
life will expire prior to completion of the mission.
Er'!ulsion stability is the major criterion in establishing extinguisher
age life at one year. S\o:RI and NASA test data have shown that, a.fter
shaking.adequat.- f"oart density and l,,",pre pvident for,.post f"light and
extended shelf aged units,indicating emul,!;ion stability. S\\RI test data
also that mission storage under 7.ero G does not deQrade
stabi]:i ty to the Il>x'tent wncou.ntered in on_,' G.
To support the ShORT test. data int".li9ht te!ltinQ of the Skylab OWS
extinguisher established that the el:!l.ulsification WAS not distributed.
Bnsed on the short extension of aQe life '!lOd prelaunch shake requirement
to restore emUlsification, plus the fact 'I:hat the aQe lif"e of the IlQ
extinguishrr expires in zero Qravity for i!1 July ASTP Mission, it is
recommended that the CSM 119 fire extinguJ sher be allocated 1;0 CSM III
