AM.02.630e edition 1

Standard levelling device

Introduction

This system is suited for ground mounted lights or pole mounted lights up to 2 m. It consists of a support, which is secured on the light unit, in the place of the optical cartridge, and which is equipped with a elevation angle setting device, a sighting device (both with a graduated scale) and a spirit level. The elevation angle setting device is graduated from 0 to 25. For the azimuthal setting, the system can be rotated around a vertical axis, and has 4 set positions that allow aiming at reference points (generally other lights) in a direction parallel or perpendicular to the centre line. The sighting device is graduated from -4 to +4 to allow for toe-in angles. Two additional set positions at -15 and +15 permit the setting of RTILS lights.

Procedure

The following table instructs you on how to work with the device: Step 1 2 3 Assemble the system. Remove the optical cartridge and install the levelling device in its place. Tighten the securing screw. Set the elevation angle on the setting device and the azimuth (toe-in) angle on the sighting device. Refer to ICAO Annex 14 to know the correct elevation and toe-in angles in function of the light and its position. 4 5 Level the light approximately to allow the azimuth orientation of the light. Set the light in the correct direction using the sighting device, aiming at the next or former light in the same alignment. For lights in a barrette, a side row or a wing bar, aiming laterally at another light is possible. For this purpose release the two locking levers, turn the system by 90 until a distinct click can be felt, and retighten the locking levers. If there is no light in the same alignment, use a reference pole. 6 7 Secure the bracing clamp of the light. Use the spirit level to set the light at the correct elevation by unscrewing/ tightening slightly the two opposite screws. Tighten the screws sufficiently to avoid any play, but do not overtighten them. Once this is done, secure the two counter-nuts. Remove the device. Put the optical cartridge back in place, without forgetting to connect the lamp. Continued on next page Action

Electronic levelling device

Introduction

This system is suited for fittings mounted on safety approach masts, when it is not possible to get access to the top of the mast in its standing position.

Composition

The system consists of a support similar to the one used with the standard simplified levelling device (see page 23). However, the support is equipped with a sensor activated with a switch, with a 10 m long cable. The operator can then operate the sensor from the ground, and read the elevation angle measurement when the mast is tilted to the ground.

Procedure

The following table instructs you on how to work with the device: Step 1 Lower the mast. See instruction manual of the supplied masts. 2 If the mast has been correctly installed, i.e. its tilting axis is perpendicular to the centre line, a light with 0 toe-in will have its front surface fully horizontal when the mast is tilted over 90 (down to the horizontal). With the mast in this position, adjust the light by turning it around the tube, and then tighten the bracing clamp. For lights with a toe-in, first adjust the light for 0 toe-in. Make a reference mark on the tube just below the zero mark at the bottom of the slip fitter. Using the graduated scale, turn the light around the tube to the desired toe-in, and tighten the bracing clamp. 3 4 5 6 Remove the optical cartridge and install the levelling device in its place. Tighten the securing screw. Raise the mast. Operate the switch to take a measurement. Lower the mast and read the angle indicated on the digital display. Calculate the difference between the real angle and the required one. If necessary, adjust the elevation angle by unscrewing/tightening slightly the two opposite screws. Tighten the screws sufficiently to avoid any play, but do not overtighten them. Once this is done, secure the two counternuts. While doing the correction, two measurements means are useable: - The elevation scale on the side of the light body (coarse measurement); - The levelling device itself, by taking a measurement before and after correction (fine measurement). Raise the mast and repeat the operation 6 until the adjustment is correct. Lower the mast and remove the device. Put the optical cartridge back in place, without forgetting to connect the lamp. Action

7 8 Note:

During the installation of the approach line, a quicker method is to use a platform at the light level for an easy initial adjustment. Continued on next page

The following table instructs you on how to replace a lamp in the maintenance base: Step 1 2 Action Open the fitting by hinging down the optical cartridge (1). (UEL-1-150): Slide the insulating sleeves away from the "fast-on" connectors and disconnect the lamp (2) from the cable wires. (UEL-1-120): Disconnect the cable from the lamp (2). 3 Remove the optical cartridge and replace it by another one of the same model, in overhauled condition. If damaged, replace the insulation sleeves. (UEL-1-150): Reconnect the lamp. Apply a light coat of silicone grease on the fast-on connectors. Slide the insulating sleeves back in place over the fast - on connectors (UEL-1-150): Re-connect the lamp cable 5 6 Close the optical cartridge. Back in the maintenance base: 1- Remove the lamp (on the UEL-1-120, by unscrewing the four fixation screws) 2- Clean the cartridge and especially the front glass (1b), check the condition of the reflector (1c), the gaskets (1a and 1d) and the spring (7), and replace if needed. 3- Carefully install the new lamp in the keyed aperture at the rear of the optical cartridge (on the UEL-1-120, retighten the four screws). The optical cartridge is now ready to be used again.

1. In case of relamping executed in the field, the lamp can be changed without removing the optical cartridge from the light. The quality of the result can be affected, most of all in case of night work, rain or cold conditions. 2. Touching the quartz bulb with bare fingers may seriously shorten the lamps life. If the bulb has been touched, wipe it carefully with a piece of lens cleaning tissue or similar material moistened with alcohol. Continued on next page

How to dismantle the optical assembly

Procedure

The following table instructs you on how to dismantle the optical assembly (to be done in the maintenance base): Step 1 2 3 4 Action Remove the optical cartridge (1) from the light. Remove the lamp (2). Slide the front gasket (1a) around the front of the cartridge. This releases the reflector (1c) and the front glass (1b). Reassembly is done in the opposite order.

As the reflector used in the optical assembly is not symetrical, correct positioning is necessary and will be obtained when the hole in the reflector corresponds with the positioning pin of the optical cartridge. The clear front glass has a structure spreading the light, created by lines on the internal surface. Therefore, it is important that those lines be positioned vertically and not horizontally.

Chapter 5: Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting In the table below, a number of problems are listed in the first column. In the second column, you will find the possible causes of the problem and in the third table column the solution: Before attempting to service, de-energize and lockout the serie circuit or the regulator so that the fixture can not be energized by remote means. Problem Lamp does not energize. Possible cause Lamp defective Loose or broken contact or connector Moisture present in fixture Replace lamp. Tighten or replace the contacts or connector. Open up and dry, inspect lens for cracks. Check the gaskets. Check that the drainage hole, in the bottom of the optical cartridge, is not obstructed. Deteriorated wire insulation Defective isolation transformer Short lamp life (UEL-1-150): Too high current (lamp will have black burns) Replace wires. Check transformer secondary current (in short-circuit) with true RMS Ammeter. Check output current of isolating transformer at full brightness. Current should not exceed 6.7 A. Replace transformer if defective; if not, adjust CCR output current. Moisture in assembly Open up and dry, inspect lens for cracks. Check the gaskets. Check that the drainage hole, in the bottom of the optical cartridge, is not obstructed. Defective lamp or lamp bulb touched with bare fingers (lamp interior will have a yellow-white powdery appearance if air has entered through a hole or crack) Replace lamp. Solution

Spare parts

It is recommended to create a sufficiently large stock of spare parts to maintain the fittings. It will mainly consist of consumables like lamps, gaskets, etc. Other components that may need replacement, such as front glasses, hardware and sub-assemblies should be stocked in smaller quantities. The stock should also contain some optical cartridges and complete fittings of each type.
