Power Module Replacement

Replacing a Power Module requires hardware replacement. Currently, the Power Module will be pre-configured when delivered, so there is no need for software configuration procedures.

Hardware Replacement

To remove and replace a Power Module, follow these steps:

  1. Power down the system.

  2. Remove the top float block by removing the four screws holding the float block to the frame.

  3. The DVL will need to be removed in order to remove the Power Module.
  4. For the Power Module to be replaced, disconnect the thruster and LED light connector stack from the top of the Power Module.

  5. Using a Phillips head screw driver, remove the 4 screws that hold the Power Module to the frame.

  6. Remove the damaged Power Module from the vehicle being careful to thread the remaining connected cables through the frame.

  7. Remove the cables from the old Power Module and install them in the same locations on the replacement Power Module.

  8. Thread the cables through the frame the way they were routed on the old Power Module.

  9. Mount the replacement Power Module in the frame and secure it using the Phillips head screws removed earlier. Do not over-tighten these screws.

  10. Reinstall the thruster and LED light connector stack into the top connector on the Power Module.

  11. Replace the DVL.

  12. Replace the float block using the screws removed earlier.
