Cable pin assignments.
Some wires in RT control cable have multiconnection in the RT and are found
at any of the pin numbers listed.
Pins U, V, and W are not directly
connected through the AM-6879. Therefore, they must be checked separately.
Pin V of J6 goes to the center pin of J7 and pin W of J6 goes to the shell
of 7. Pin U of 6 goes to pin U of J5 through the 3-amp fuse of the AM-6879
and should read a very low ohmic value. All other connections go straight
through and should read 0 ohms between the same pin number from J5 to J6.
This information can be used to determine if there are opens or shorts in
the interconnect cables or AM-6879, to isolate a problem to cables or AM-
6879, or to eliminate them from consideration.
17. POWER CONTROL. Power is controlled through the AM-6545 power distribution by
Therefore, if the checks in paragraph 16 eliminate cables and AM-6879
(remember the fuse) as the source of a power problem, cable CX-4720 has been
checked for power. A power problem can be caused only by the RT or AM-6545. The
only method available at this time for the organizational repair person to
troubleshoot such a problem is to substitute a known good RT. If this corrects the
problem, you DX the RT. If it does not correct the problem, DX the AM-6545. The
