5-10. OPERATIONAL CHECK. Continued
Connect the test setups only when directed, and with the power supply set to OFF. The large
current capacity of the test power supply can cause personal injury. Verify the test setup before
turning the power supply ON.
Static electricity and stray voltages can damage the decoder control (6A2). Use an antistatic
pad on the work surface and wear a grounded wrist strap when troubleshooting.
High voltage (200 V) and high RF energy (50 watts) is present in the power amplifier during
testing. Do not disassemble with power applied to the power amplifier.
If the decoder control (6A2) is replaced, be sure to perform the entire operational check.
Connect equipment as shown in figure 5-2 to perform the operational check of the RF power amplifier.
