Inspect the carton(s) for dents and/or damage, report the results to a superior or supervisor in charge
if damages are noted. Do not unpack the unit until authorized.
Unpack the ANCD unit while following the packing method illustration and list of materials, see Table
2-1. Do not damage the packing materials; they should be stored in the carton in case the ANCD will
be stored or shipped at a later date.
Once the ANCD is exposed, perform a visual inspection of the housing assembly. Inspect the housing
for cracks. Check the fill connector and CIK and it's socket for damage. Open the display cover, check
the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) for cracks and the keyboard for damage. Report any discrepancies
noted to a supervisor.
4-5. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS).
PMCS should be performed monthly if your ANCD is in standby (ready for immediate operation) condition.
PMCS is not needed if your ANCD is in limited storage.
The following material is required for unit PMCS:
Cheesecloth (NSN 8305-00-267-3015)
Brush (NSN 7920-00-685-3980)
Silicone compound (NSN 6850-00-177-5094)
Routine checks (such as cleaning, washing, checking for frayed cables, tightening loose nuts, bolts and
screws, correct seating of connectors, and completeness of equipment, etc.) are not listed as PMCS. These
tasks should be done anytime you see they are needed.
If you find any damage during PMCS, refer to the Troubleshooting procedures or MAINTENANCE
procedures on how to correct it.
Use the number in the ITEM column of the PMCS chart for the TM ITEM NO. on DA Form 2404
(Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet).
This section lists problems that may occur during normal operation of your ANCD or found during PMCS.
Don't skip over steps. You must follow the steps in the order they are listed.
This section does not list all of the problems that could happen to your ANCD. If a problem is not listed, or if
a problem cannot be fixed by the steps given, notify higher level maintenance or your supervisor.
