Although personnel authorized to operate ASLMS may connect electrical power from the
PDISE to the FPUs, only personnel with MOS 51R, 52C, 52D, 52G or qualified civilian
personnel may perform maintenance on the ASLMS electrical system. If ungrounded
power is used, the ASLMS container must be electrically grounded to earth using an
external grounding strap and rod (not furnished) connected to a grounding lug located at
the power entrance of the FPU-12 or the exit panel of the FPU-8. Failure to ground the
container may result in serious injury or death to personnel from electrical shock.
There are some common items to check on the ASLMS and associated equipment. These include the
Proper operation of the interior lighting.
Condition of the power cables.
Condition and proper connection of ground strap and rod (if used).
Proper service of the ASLMS and components is an integral part of maintenance. Regular cleaning
prevents possible problems in the future, so make it a habit to clean the ASLMS and components
