EIR Digest Revitalized
The Engineering, Acquisition and Logistics Directorate is drafting a new issue of
the Equipment Improvement Recommendation (EIR) Digest for TMDE. The revitalized
publication will serve as a host to EIR statuses and other technical updates that had
been found in the Accurate Times. A release date is scheduled for July, but budget
restraints will force them to limit it to an electronic format on LOGSA. Anyone wishing
to submit articles for the digest may send their input to Mr. Les Barnard at
Calibration of the Aerosmith Model 1790 Tachometer Tester
When calibrating an Ideal Aerosmith model 1790 Tachometer Tester the adapter
used to cover the x2 range (5000-10000 rpm) may be defective. This is easily identified
by attaching the adapter and manually rotating the shaft and noting if the display
indicates twice as many rotations. To calibrate to the full range of the 1790 requires the
adapter. Contact Ideal Aerosmith (http://www.ideal-aerosmith.com/contact/index.asp)
(https://usata.redstone.army.mil/TATV2/default_net.aspx) if defective adapters are
found. It may be possible to get free replacements for adapters linked to latent defects.
