POWER SUPPLY ARCHITECTURE

The Aspen system can run from an interference-free AC power source. The power supply has four main assemblies:

AC Input/Output Box (AC Box)

Main Power Supply (Main PS)

Isolation Transformer Box (Iso Xfmr)

Programmable Power Supply (PPS)

Refer to Figure A: System Cabling Diagram.

WARNING!

In addition to power line voltage, voltages as high as 300VDC are also present in the Aspen system power supplies, wiring harness and backplane. Contact with these voltages could result in injury or death. Because of these high voltages, all internal parts of the system should be treated with caution and serviced only by competent and trained service personnel.

POWER

CONFIGURATIONS

The Aspen system power subsystem is designed to provide reliable power under a wide range of conditions. The system can be configured to accept input voltages of 90 to 127VAC or 207 to 253VAC at 47 to 63Hz. The power configuration is done at the factory by installing the appropriate AC Box and Isolation Transformer Box.

The power cord may be detached from the supply and replaced with a cord appropriate for the system power configuration and the electrical standards of the country in which the system will be used.

Theory of Operation

THEORY OF OPERATION

PRIMARY AC WIRING

NOTE:

AC power is supplied to the system via a detachable, hospital-grade low leakage power cord. Several cords are available for use in various countries. AC power enters the system through the AC Box. This AC line voltage is passed through the main circuit breaker and an electromagnetic interference (EMI) filter before it is sent to the Main PS. The EMI filter attenuates conducted noise in the RF spectrum and decouples earth ground from system ground to reduce the effects of earth ground noise.

In the Main PS, AC line voltage is split and sent to the DC generating part of the power supply and to the Isolation Transformer Box. In the Isolation Transformer Box, AC line voltage is passed through a circuit breaker and a relay before it reaches the Isolation Transformer primary. This relay is controlled by +12V relay output from the Main PS, which allows the Aspen system to come up to full power before the peripherals are powered on.

From the secondary winding of the transformer, isolated AC voltage is sent through two individual circuit breakers and then to the system monitor and PPS, respectively. From a second transformer, secondary isolated AC is sent back to the AC Box for powering the accessory outlets. At the AC Box, isolated AC voltage is also sent through a circuit breaker and EMI filter, and then to the accessory outlet receptacles.

Whenever a device connected to the primary side AC power is replaced, the leakage current to chassis ground of the system must be measured and verified to be in compliance with the regulations of the country in which the system is being used. Primary-side components include the power cord, AC Box, Main PS, and Isolation Transformer Box, and all primary AC interconnect cables. Contact the Acuson Customer Engineer if for assistance with this measurement.

SYSTEM DC POWER DISTRIBUTION

Main Power

Supply (DC

Generation)

Programmable

Power Supply

Fuses

NOTE:

Theory of Operation

There are two DC power supplies in the system, the Main PS and the PPS. Refer to Figure 6-3.

The Main PS provides all but one of the system DC voltages. The following major subassemblies are powered by this supply:

Scanner

DIMAQ workstation

PPS

User interface

Fans

Disk drives

The PPS provides the only other DC voltage. This DC voltage is software programmable for predetermined increments from 30 to 150VDC, and is used by the transmitter boards (XMTs). This is done to minimize heat dissipation on the XMT boards and to increase overall system efficiency.

There are 2 field replaceable fuses in the system. Both are in the DC Distribution, above the Main PS in the power supply area of the system. F1 fuses a 5VDC line used by the User Interface Controller board (UIC). F2 fuses another 5VDC line, which powers the hard drive and MO drive.

Be sure replacement fuses are of the same rating and type as the fuses removed.

POWER SUPPLY SYNCHRONIZATION

POWER FAIL SIGNAL

P/N 59157 Rev. 1

The Main PS receives a 50kHz sync signal from the IOB, which is used to synchronize the switching frequencies within the Main PS. This helps reduce power supply noise in the image.

The DC power supply provides a power fail signal, which allows the Aspen system to shut down gracefully in the event that AC power is interrupted. The DC power supply can maintain power for 20 milliseconds after AC power is lost.

POWER ON

SEQUENCE

Theory of Operation

When the system is plugged into an AC power outlet and the main circuit breaker is switched on, standby power (V STANDBY) is supplied to a circuit on the IOB, which monitors the system Power switch. Pressing the Aspen system Power switch sends a power on request to the IOB. The IOB latches the power on request and sends it to the Main PS. The Main PS then turns on all system DC power, which allows the system to power on. The 12V peripheral power comes up in about 150 milliseconds and closes the relay in the Isolation Transformer Box. This applies AC power to the primary of the Isolation Transformer, which in turn brings up the monitor, PPS, and peripherals that are connected to the accessory outlets.

During the off-to-on transition phase of the power supplies, before power is stable, a reset signal is generated by the IOB and is applied to the Scanner and the DIMAQ workstation.

Once the power is stable, the system reset is removed by the IOB and the system begins its boot sequence. Refer to Figure 6-4 for a simplified diagram of this operation.

POWER OFF

SEQUENCE

The following power off sequence is needed to power off the system in a safe and repeatable manner, allowing the system to store important information in battery-backed RAM, and to store AEGIS exams to disk without damaging the systems internal hard drive.

After the Aspen system is powered on, pressing the system Power switch resets the latch on the IOB board and removes the power on request. This causes an interrupt to be sent to the system controller indicating a power off request has been initiated. The Aspen system then performs a power off sequence that includes completing disk accesses, closing open files, and other required housekeeping.

When the housekeeping functions are complete, the system controller sends a power off request to the IOB, and the IOB passes the request to the Main PS. All DC voltages are turned off, thus shutting down the system.

NOTE:

Never turn off the power by pulling the plug from the wall outlet or turning off the Main circuit breaker, as it may cause hard drive or MO failures and the loss of unsaved AEGIS system exams. Always turn off the system by using the system Power switch.

The system also powers off if one or more of the following occurs:

AC input power is lost

The Main PS detects a fault, such as fan failure or over temperature condition

The main circuit breaker opens

As long as the system is plugged into the wall and the main circuit breaker is on, the +5VDC standby voltage (VSTANDBY) to the IOB stays on and monitors the system Power switch for the next power on request.

Power Sub Assemblies

POWER SUB ASSEMBLIES

The architecture of the two major power supplies is given below.

MAIN POWER

SUPPLY

The Main PS is the heart of the power distribution system and can be fully synchronized with other system hardware. It is a highly- integrated, compact, precise power supply. It switches automatically to accept input power from 85 to 264VAC. The AC

input is split, sending AC input voltage to the DC generating part of

the power supply, and also directly to the Isolation Transformer

Box.

DC voltage generation within the Main PS is achieved with three

isolating downconverters as follows:

High Output DC Voltages (HODC)

The high power downconverter supplies the following HODC voltages:

+5.0VDC Scan Converter Digital (Heavy Duty)

+5.0VDC Scanner Digital (Heavy Duty)

+12VDC Peripheral

+8 to 16VDC variable fan drive voltage

+12VDC Relay

The 300VDC downconverter provides the following HODC voltage:

 

+300VDC

An

error code 1 or 2 (HODC errors) on the IOB 7-segment display

indicates a problem on one or more of the high power or 300VDC downconverter supplies.

Clean Output DC Voltages (CODC)

The clean output downconverter supplies the following CODC voltage:

+5.0VDC Analog

+7.5VDC

7.5VDC

+12.0VDC

12.0VDC

+15.0VDC

15.0VDC

An error code of 3 or 4 (CODC) on the IOB 7-segment display

indicates a problem on one or more of the clean output

downconverter supplies.

PROGRAMMABLE POWER SUPPLY

NOTE:

Acuson Confidential

The PPS provides the voltages used by the XMT boards. Because the PPS drives the XMT boards at voltages no higher than required, heat dissipation on the boards is minimized and the overall efficiency of the power supply and Scanner is increased.

The PPS is powered by 115VAC from the Isolation Transformer Box and 300VDC from the Main PS. The 115VAC is used to drive the control circuitry in the PPS, and the 300VDC is downconverted to generate programmable output from the PPS to the transmitters. Transmit voltages are commanded by the Scanner via four control lines from the ZDT. Four status lines, back to the ZDT, monitor the voltage output of the PPS for the Scanner. If the control lines and status lines are not in agreement, the Scanner does not fire the transmitters.

If the circuit breaker on the AC Input box trips, control power is no longer available to the PPS, and the PPS output shuts down.

ISOLATION TRANSFORMER BOX

WARNING!

P/N 59157 Rev. 1

Power Sub Assemblies

The Isolation Transformer Box provides isolated AC power to the monitor, PPS, and isolated accessory outlets. The AC primary input for the Isolation Transformer Box is routed via the Main PS and originates at the AC Box. This AC line voltage passes through a circuit breaker and a relay before reaching the Isolation Transformer. The relay is controlled by the +12V relay output from the Main PS. Alternately, the relay can be closed by an external 12VDC source for purposes of electrical testing.

The secondary of the Isolation Transformer consists of three separate windings (taps). One winding provides power to the Aspen system monitor and to the PPS. The system monitor receives 115VAC power through a circuit breaker. Current from this breaker is fed through a second circuit breaker to power the PPS. The other two transformer windings provide power for the AC accessories outlets. These two windings are configured at the factory, in parallel or series, to provide for 115VAC or 230VAC at the accessory outlets, as required.

The primary input circuit breaker disconnects power to all sub-systems powered by the Isolation Transformer Box. The system monitor circuit breaker disconnects power to the monitor and PPS; the PPS circuit breaker disconnects only the PPS. The circuit breaker for the accessory outlets is on the AC Box.

MEASURING POWER SUPPLY OHMS

OBJECTIVE

Use a Voltmeter to measure Power Supply Ohms if a system will not power up. This can be used in troubleshooting to determine if a power supply is being loaded down or just not functioning.

PREPARATION

Before starting, pull the power cord for 60 seconds to reset the latchon the Main Power Supply. If the Power Supply sensed a fault it may have powered down and still be fine.

Also try to short pin 10 on the IOB J7 MDI cable. This sends a power on request to the power supply bypassing the IOB and power switch.

PROCEDURE

1

Power the system off and wait 60 seconds to take measurements.

Leave cables connected and make measurements into the back of the cable. J14 can be unplugged for access - make sure to measure the pins into the cable (not the power supply) and note that the pins will be opposite of the drawing - when the cable is plugged in.

3

Look for a short or close to a short on one of the outputs. Do not be concerned if there is deviance with the measurements given.

4

If you find a power supply that is shorted, refer to the tables in the training manual that list all assemblies used by that power supply.

5

Leave the ohm-meter connected to the supply until remove one board at a time until finding the one that was shorting the supply.

6

Pull the power cord for 60 seconds to reset the latchon the Main Power Supply and the system should power up.

HARDWARE POWER UP HANGS

MINIMUM BOARD CONFIGURATION

Aspen system does not function properly with any PCBs removed from the system (except the DCI). The following is a list of behavior expected when boards and/or cables are lifted. Use this when troubleshooting a problem to rule out specific boards as the cause of the problem. Even though the system does not function completely, it may power up farther than it would with a bad board installed.

This information was verified on an Aspen 2.0 system.

Power Supply Questions

POWER SUPPLY QUESTIONS

1 The system displays an LED indicating that there is a fan fault. What is the first step?

2 Is there anything in the power system that could cause the system to not output transmit pulses?

3 Where are the fuses in the system?

4 What boards could load down the +7.5 volt supply?

P/N 59157 Rev. 1

5 How many circuit breakers are on the system?

6 When is the power supply ohm procedure used?
