KNOB POSITION 0 OFF OPERATION The AN/PEQ-2A will not operate REMARKS When underwater, the mode switch should be OFF to preclude water pressure on the button switch from inadvertently turning ON the unit. Low power is useful to reduce night vision device blooming of the aiming spot on close targets. It is also useful for training because the beam power meets the criteria of an eye-safe laser. Low power aiming and illuminating is useful to reduce the effects of blooming when engaging targets at close range. It is also useful for training because the beam power meets the criteria of an eye-safe laser. Hi power is useful for aiming or pointing at distant targets. The DUAL mode enables a target to be illuminated and fired upon using an aiming beam. The illuminator operates at full power in all dual modes of operation. The DUAL mode enables a target to be illuminated and fired upon using an aiming beam. The illuminator operates at full power in all dual modes of operation.

SECTION VI. MAINTENANCE


6.1 Clean the AN/PEQ-2A by flushing with water and wiping with a soft cloth. Such cleaning should be done whenever the AN/PEQ-2A becomes dirty or after exposure to salt water. To clean the aiming and illumination beam windows, wipe using a soft cloth with clean water, alcohol, or general purpose window cleaner. Prior to use under water, inspect the O-ring seals in the battery caps to make sure they are free of sand or dirt particles. Thoroughly clean the O-rings, battery caps and the back of the battery compartment which seals against the O-ring. If the O-ring becomes cut, nicked, or dried out, the battery cap should be replaced. If the battery cap is bent, or scratched in the O-ring seating area, it should be replaced. Periodically lubricate the O-ring with fluorinated grease. A list of repair parts is contained in Appendix C. All repair parts can be installed at the operator or unit level. Special tools or equipment are not required for maintaining the AN/PEQ-2A.
