f. Install CADU in aircraft. Connect CADU-to-DAU cable (29325601) to CADU and to DAU receptacle marked
PROCEDURE 2: ACCELEROMETER INSTALLATION
a. Mount/install accelerometer (28110900) anywhere on the airframe that an irregular or unusual vibration is
b. Connect accelerometer cable (29105600) from accelerometer to the DAU receptacle marked ACC1, ACC2,
ACC3, and/or ACC4. The flight plan will measure data on one channel at a time.
PROCEDURE 3: PERFORM PROBES MEASUREMENTS
a. Operate aircraft at desired RPM.
b. Turn on DAU.
c. Turn on CADU.
d. Press QUIT on the CADU until all selections are undefined.
e. Use cursor keys to highlight Aircraft Type, then press DO.
