This work package contains information and instructions to keep the AR2 power cable assembly
in good repair.
Do not open or remove screws of AR2 housing. No internal maintenance is
authorized. Unauthorized disassembly may cause a malfunction which may
result in death of parachutist.
REMOVAL OF AR2 AND POWER CABLE ASSEMBLY
1. Ensure that the JUMP/OFF switch is OFF.
If AR2 has not actuated, go to step 4.
2. If the AR2 has actuated, remove the AR2 and its power cable assembly from the parachute
by removing tacking, two screws, nuts and clamp. These parts (hardware) are accessories
attached to the parachute.
Power cables are fitted with fixed eyes. After cocking the AR2 mechanism,
always re-inspect the eye for distortion or other damage which may cause it to
fail in use so that parachute may not deploy which may result in death of
parachutist. Discard and replace cables showing distortion or damage.
