Abstract : This report describes the Malfunction Simulator incorporated into the Checkout and Maintenance (CAM) Trainer. The Malfunction Simulator supports use of the CAM Trainer for research on electronic troubleshooting. The report indicates the components of the Malfunction Simulator, its general design and operation, and general procedures for programming malfunctions into the AN/ASB-4 Radar System, which is a major component of the CAM Trainer. Schematics, block diagrams, and photographs are included. Basically, the Malfunction Simulator consists of two units: a malfunction insertion unit and a control rack. The malfunction insertion unit can be easily inserted in the circuit immediately before any of the many major components. By use of the control rack, the malfunction insertion unit can open any one of up to 30 wires leading to the component of the AN/ASB-4 system and producing the desired malfunction. (Author)
