Clean all parts thoroughly, using a small brush, if necessary, to
clean threaded areas. Burnish contact point with fine file, being
careful to blow away all metallic particles removed. Inspect
contact points for pitting. Remove pits with a fine abrasive cloth
If deeply pitted, replace. Inspect insulator for cracks. If cracked
or broken, replace the insulator Inspect nuts and studs on

6-37. Electronic Sensing Devices
. The electronic sensing device (6, fig. 6-1)
is an instrument used to produce a stabilized arc light from the
carbon electrodes (20, fig. 4-6), providing a constant intensity of
light over the copy. The device (6, fig. 6-1) electronically
maintains the gap between the carbon ends at a set distance
which remains constant during operation, thereby eliminating
any variances in light intensity. The electronic sensing devices
are mounted ver-tically on the inner side of the rear truss
support (9) located on the copyboard end of the camera. The
wiring cable (1) housing the arc lamp circuit wires, is connected
to the device (6) by a cable connector socket (8). The sensing
device cannot be checked externally or repaired, it must be
replaced. Since there are separate sensing devices for each
lamp, a trouble effecting both lamps cannot be caused by the
sensing devices (except in the unlikely event both should fail
simultaneously. If one lamp flickers or does not operate, while
the other does, switch the lamp cables to the sensing devices.
If the lamp which had operated normally then fails, replace the
