Section IV. LOAD MEASURING UNIT
This section contains repair instructions for the load
See figure 8-1 and remove the load measuring unit (7) as
a. Unscrew electrical connector.
b. Remove screws (5) which secure load measuring unit
(7) bottom of relay table (52).
Tag all electrical leads removed during
disassembly for positive identification during
See figure 8-20 to disassemble the load measuring unit.
a. Connect load measuring unit in test circuit as illus-
trated in figure 8-21.
b. With 120 volts on M3, no load on load bank (Rd), and 0
volts indicated on voltmeter (M1), voltmeter (M2) shall in-
dicate 0 to 0.4 Vdc. Resistor RI (17, fig. 8-20), internal to
load measuring unit, may be adjusted to obtain this
c. With load on Rd, and 5.6 volts ac indicated on Ml,
voltmeter M2 shall indicate 9.4 to 9.8 Vdc.
d. Select intermediate loads of Rd, and observe that the
voltage relationships indicated by Ml and M2 are identical
to the relationships indicated by the graph in figure 8-22.
Adjust R1 to obtain this relationship.
e. Replace a defective load measuring unit, if voltage
relationships do not match the graph.
8-19. Repair, Reassembly and Installation.
a. Repair. Replace load measuring unit that does not
meet testing requirements.
b. Reassembly. See figure 8-20 and reassemble the load
c. Installation. See figure 8-1 and install the load meas-
uring unit (7) on relay table (52) with screws (5).
