POWER UP PROCEDURE

2053 00

The procedure required to power up the AN/ASC-38 is contained in the following steps. When powering up the AN/ASC-38, power may be available from the aircraft or from external dc or ac power sources.

AIRCRAFT AND EXTERNAL AC OR DC POWER SOURCES (I.E., GENERATORS, HMMWV) SHOULD BE SEPARATED BY THE MAXIMUM DISTANCE PERMITTED BY CABLE LENGTH AND TERRAIN. THIS WILL REDUCE RISK OF FIRE, CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING, AND NOISE HAZARD. DO NOT APPLY POWER TO AIRCRAFT UNTIL AC POWER SOURCE HAS BEEN PROPERLY GROUNDED. IMPROPER GROUNDING MAY RESULT IN FIRE, EXPLOSIONS, OR DEGRADATION IN A2C2S PERFORMANCE. SHOCK HAZARDS EXIST. TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT START AC POWER SOURCE BEFORE POWER AND GROUND CABLES ARE CONNECTED BETWEEN AIRCRAFT AND AC POWER SOURCE.

AVOID EQUIPMENT DAMAGE. AN/ASC-38 EQUIPMENT MUST BE POWERED UP IN THE SEQUENCE INDICATED IN THE FOLLOWING STEPS. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE SEQUENCE COULD RESULT IN EQUIPMENT DAMAGE. 1. Verify Advanced Data Controller POWER switch to ON. TO PREVENT PERSONAL INJURY AND EQUIPMENT DAMAGE, REMOVE PLGR BA-500 BATTERY BEFORE APPLYING EXTERNAL POWER TO UNIT. 2. 3. Verify BA-500 battery is not installed in Precision Lightweight Receiver (PLGR). Release MPU HARD DRIVE ACCESS cover captive fasteners, lower cover, and verify Multi-processor Unit 1 and Multi-processor Unit 2 PWR switches are set to ON. There are four SCSI bays located in each MPU. They are numbered from top to bottom. The first bay is covered by a blank cover. SCSI bays 2 thru 4 are located below the blank cover. The Intel drive in the bottom of the MPU does not have a SCSI address associated with it.

NOTE

4.

Install and secure hard disk drives in MPU 1 and MPU 2 slots 1 thru 4, as required per mission requirements. For each hard disk drive installed in MPU 1 and MPU 2, set MPU 1 and MPU 2 SCSI address switches per table 1. Close MPU HARD DRIVE ACCESS cover and secure captive fasteners. Table 1

NOTES

1.

In the following step, if the jumper cable is not properly configured, the AFATDS hard drive will not be able to communicate over the Fire Support Network, preventing calls for fire or causing other applications to have errors on boot-up. In the following step, the two forward captive fasteners on SCSI Panel A95 are obstructed by the forward left operators seat. Slide seat fully orward to gain access to the two fasteners. If necessary, use needle-nose pliers to release captive fasteners or remove operators seat to gain access to the fasteners.

2.

5. 6.

Release four captive fasteners and remove access cover from Small Computer Interface (SCSI) Panel. Configure SCSI Panel to connect TCIM to the MPU slot containing the AFATDS hard drive per Table 2. One end of the jumper cable must be connected to TCIM PORT and the other end must be connected to the connector where the AFATDS hard drive is located. Table 2

7. 8. 9. 10. 11.

Verify SCSI terminations are connected to the five unused SCSI Panel connectors. Install access cover and secure four captive fasteners. Verify all Operator Display power switches are set to ON. Release captive fastener and remove access cover to gain access to Near Term Digital Radio (NTDR). Verify NTDR FUNCTION switch is set to [STBY]. Verify both Common Display/Computer Processor Unit power ON/OFF switches are set to OFF. Verify all circuit breakers on Aft User Interface Panel are pressed in.

GROUND AC ADAPTER CABLES

3005 00

Three ground ac adapter cables are provided with the AN/ASC-38. These cable assemblies are required to connect external AC power cable assemblies from various AC power sources to the A2C2S Aircraft External Interface Panel. Mating connectors for external power source power cables are provided with ground AC adapter cables H313248-1 and H313248-2. The mating connectors must be attached to external power source power cables as shown in figure 1. If connecting an external power source cable with five wire conductors to a generator with only four output terminals, the neutral and ground conductors must be connected to the same generator terminal.

Figure 1

Ground AC adapter cable H313248-3 is provided with only the connector to be connected to A2C2S Aircraft External Interface Panel. No mating connector is provided on the other end of the ground AC adapter cable. This cable assembly is provided to attach a non-standard power connector. The non-standard connector must be obtained locally and must be attached to the cable assembly per figure 2.
