1.3 Safety Precautions

The following general safety precautions must be observed during all phases of operation, service, and repair of this equipment. Failure to comply with these precautions or with specific warnings elsewhere in this manual violates safety standards of design, manufacture, and intended use of this equipment. Hughey & Phillips assumes no liability for the customer’s failure to comply with these requirements, as listed below.

  1. Any interruption of the protective grounding conductor (inside or outside the instrument) or disconnecting the protective earth ground terminal is likely to make this equipment dangerous. Intentional interruption is prohibited.
  2. Whenever it is likely that the ground protection has been impaired, the equipment must be made inoperative by removing AC line power, and then shall be secured against any unintended operation.
  3. Ensure that only fuses with the required rated current and of the specified type (normal blow, time delay, etc.) are used for replacement. The use of repaired fuses and the short-circuiting of fuse holders must be avoided.
  4. Electrical energy available at many points may result in personal injury or death if touched. Any adjustment, maintenance, and repair of the opened equipment while power is applied shall be avoided as much as possible, however some maintenance described in this manual is performed with power supplied to the equipment while protective covers are removed. When repair with power applied is unavoidable, maintenance shall be carried out only by a skilled person who is aware of the hazard involved. Do not attempt internal service or adjustment unless another person, capable of rendering first aid and resuscitation, is present.
  5. Do not install substitute parts or perform any unauthorized modification to the equipment.
  6. Capacitors inside the equipment may still be charged after the equipment has been disconnected from its power source, even though the equipment was designed to drain charge from the capacitors when power is removed. Do not put hands or tools in the Flashhead until the High Voltage Indicator neon lamp on the High Voltage board is extinguished.

↑ Top

SECTION J

Flashheads are operating but out of sync. Slave flashheads are in white night while master in red night.

Possible Cause: Sync Monitor Board on the master power supply not configured as master.
Diagnostic Test: DIP switch S1-4 in the master unit should be set to OFF
Corrective Action: DIP switch S1-4 in the master unit should be set to OFF
Possible Cause: Interconnecting wire between master and slave power supplies missing.
Diagnostic Test: Inspect wiring between power supplies. TB1 position 3 should be daisy-chained between each power supply, per the installation wiring diagram, Figure 4.
Corrective Action: Install interconnecting wiring.

↑ Top

SECTION K

All lights are in sync, but there is a double flash or flashing faster than 40 fpm.

Possible Cause: More than one Sync Monitor Board is set as master.
Diagnostic Test: Inspect the DIP switches on each Sync Monitor Board. In the master power supply, DIP switch S1-4 should be set to OFF, which is the master position. In all the other power supplies, this switch 4 should be set to ON which is the slave position
Corrective Action: Reconfigure sync monitor boards. Refer to the Operation and Installation Guide for correct positions.

↑ Top

SECTION L

Master unit switches to night mode at night, but slave units remain in day mode.

Possible Cause: Interconnecting wire between master and slave power supplies missing.

Possible Cause: K4 failure.
Diagnostic Test: Verify that the relay changes state during transition from Day to Night. Check for 120VAC at K4-A to ground in night mode.
Corrective Action: Replace K4 relay or correct loss of 120VAC to relay.
Possible Cause: Power supply mode switches are in the wrong position.
Diagnostic Test: Make sure both switches are in the Remote position, and that the photocell is not illuminated by artificial lighting.
Corrective Action: Change switch settings.

↑ Top

SECTION N

Sidelights in alarm

Possible Cause: Sidelight lamp burned out.
Diagnostic Test: On the sidelight module, set the DIP switches to monitor 1 (one) less sidelight than the current number. Alternatively, measure the current going out to your sidelights though the wire on TB1-11 and/or TB1-12. Each incandescent sidelight will draw ~1A at 120VAC.
Corrective Action: Replace burned out sidelight.
Possible Cause: Wrong DIP switch setting on the sidelight alarm module.
Diagnostic Test: Match DIP switch setting with the actual number of sidelights to monitor.
Possible Cause: Low input voltage.
Diagnostic Test: Check input voltage at TB1, 9&10. It should be 120 VAC +/- 10%.
Corrective Action: Increase input voltage.

↑ Top

If the sidelight alarm board appears to be damaged or not working properly, please call Hughey & Phillips Technical Support for additional troubleshooting assistance.

SECTION 5 – Flashhead Isolation Test

Disconnect the seven-conductor cable from power supply at terminal block TB2. Using an Ohmmeter, check the resistance between the conductors of the disconnected flashhead cable, and compare to the expected values:

  • #1 Red: Open to all conductors
  • #2 Brown: < 5W to blue and black, open to all others
  • #3 Black: < 5W to blue and brown, open to all others
  • #4 Blue: < 5W to brown and black, open to all others
  • #5 White: < 5W to gray, open to all others
  • #6 Gray: < 5W to white, open to all others
  • #7 Ground: Open to all conductors

Flashhead Test Results

  1. Correct readings do not ensure that the flashhead and cable are good, but this is a quick check for obvious problems.
  2. If the readings above are correct, proceed to Power Supply Isolation Test, next page.
  3. If the resistance between #5 (gray) and #6 (white) is greater than 5W, or is ‘open’, suspect that the flashhead interlock switch is not depressed.
  4. For other inconsistencies with the above chart, the probable causes are miswiring, or conductors shorted and/or opened. If possible, disconnect the flashhead cable at both ends and perform a ‘Megger’ test with a Megohm Meter.

↑ Top

SECTION 6 – Power Supply Isolation Test

Leave the seven-conductor strobe cable disconnected from the power supply at terminal block TB2. Install a jumper wire between terminals TB2-5 and TB2-6 to simulate the interlock switch being depressed. Apply power to the system and perform the following voltage measurements and trigger tests.

Voltage Measurements

Using a voltmeter, measure the voltages of the conductors to ground terminal 7. Check the

measurements in both day and night modes, and compare to the expected values:

  • #1 Red: +500 VDC to ground
  • #2 Brown: -500 VDC to ground
  • #3 See Note 1
  • #4 Blue: See Note 1
  • #5 Gray: 120 VAC to ground
  • #6 White: 120 VAC to ground

If either the red or the brown conductor does not have +500 VDC or -500 VDC respectively, there is most likely a problem in the T1 transformer, the high voltage board, or a capacitor has failed. Check the input and output voltage of the transformer. Check the high voltage board for bad diodes. Check each capacitor for the proper value. If your meter will not measure capacitance (Farads) then check the capacitors for opens or shorts.

*Note 1: DO NOT MEASURE WITH METER. MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT.

Trigger Test

Install a neon lamp (Hughey & Phillips Part # 77-2342) across the trigger output. For the FG3000B, install the neon lamp in TB2-2 and TB2-4 if checking for Day triggers. Install neon lamp in TB2-2 and TB3 if checking for Night triggers.

The neon lamp should be flashing per mode of power supply. With the power supply in day mode, you should see one quick flash. When the system is put into night mode, you should see a long ‘burst’ of flashes for a few seconds. Then the lamp should begin flashing short ‘bursts’ of flashes. This happens because the power supply can tell that the red flashtubes are not operating, so it tries to go into backup white night mode.

If the neon tube will never flash, you most likely have a problem with the trigger board. Check the dip switch settings with those in the Operation and Installation Guide, and replace the board if necessary.

If the neon tube flashes slowly, you most likely have a problem with the sync board. Check the dip switch settings with those in the Operation and Installation Guide, and replace the board if necessary.

If the neon lamp is flashing correctly, and the voltages are correct, the power supply is probably working, and the problem is likely in the flashhead or the strobe cable.

Remove neon lamp & jumper from TB2 before reconnecting the flashhead.
