Maintenance of Solid-State Control This section is excerpted from Allen- Bradley publication SGI–1.1, Safety Guidelines for the Application, Installation, and Maintenance of Solid-State Control. It is formatted so that explanatory comments from Rockwell Automation appear in blue headings along with the corresponding parts of Section 5 of NEMA Standards Publication No. ICS 1.1–1987, titled Safety Guidelines for the Application, Installation, and Maintenance of Solid-State Control. The text from the NEMA Standard has been reprinted verbatim, with NEMA’s permission captioned “NEMA Standard Text.” “Explanatory Information,” contains the Rockwell Automation comments. The comments provide information to help readers better understand the characteristics of industrial equipment employing solid state technology. NEMA text is provided solely as a convenience to the reader, and Rockwell Automation assumes no responsibility for its completeness or validity. NEMA Standards Publication No. ICS 1.1–1984, Rev. No. 1 – October 1987, is available from the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, 2101 L Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20037. Allen-Bradley publication SGI–1.1 is available from your local Rockwell Automation office. NEMA Standard Text Section 5 Preventive Maintenance and Repair Guidelines 5.1 General A well-planned and executed maintenance program is essential to the satisfactory operation of solid-state electrical equipment. The kind and frequency of the maintenance operation will vary with the kind and complexity of the equipment as well as with the nature of the operating conditions. Maintenance recommendations of the manufacturer or appropriate product standards should be followed. Useful reference publications for setting up a maintenance program are NFPA 70B–1983, Maintenance of Electrical Equipment, and NFPA 70E–1983, Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces. 5.2 Preventive Maintenance The following factors should be considered when formulating a maintenance program: 1. Maintenance must be performed by qualified personnel familiar with the construction, operation, and hazards involved with the control. 2. Maintenance should be performed with the control out of operation and disconnected from all sources of power. If maintenance must be performed while the control is energized, the safety related practices of NFPA 70E should be followed. 3. Care should be taken when servicing electrostatic sensitive components. The manufacturer’s recommendations for these components should be followed. 4. Ventilation passages should be kept open. If the equipment depends upon auxiliary cooling, e.g., air, water, or oil, periodic inspection (with filter replacement when necessary) should be made of these systems. 5. The means employed for grounding or insulating the equipment from ground should be checked to assure its integrity (see 4.5). 6. Accumulations of dust and dirt on all parts, including on semiconductor heat sinks, should be removed according to the manufacturer’s instructions, if provided; otherwise, the manufacturer should be consulted. Care must be taken to avoid damaging any delicate components and to avoid displacing dust, dirt, or debris in a way that permits it to enter or settle into parts of the control equipment. 7. Enclosures should be inspected for evidence of deterioration. Accumulated dust and dirt should be removed from the top of the enclosures before opening doors or removing covers. 8. Certain hazardous materials removed as part of maintenance or repair procedure (e.g., polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) found in some liquid filled capacitors) must be disposed of as described in Federal regulations. C.5.2 Preventive Maintenance [Explanatory Information (Supplementary Comments—Not part of NEMA Standards Publication No. ICS 1.1)] Lithium batteries are frequently used for memory backup in solid state equipment due to their excellent shelf life and high energy-to-weight ratio. Lithium is a highly reactive metal that can cause burns if there is contact with skin. The batteries are sealed so there is seldom a problem of contact with lithium as long as reasonable care is exercised when handling them. They should only be used in their intended application and not subjected to rough handling. When batteries are replaced in equipment, the batteries removed should be disposed of in accordance with the battery supplier’s instructions. The Department of Transportation has certain regulations that prohibit shipment of equipment with batteries installed if the batteries contain 0.5 grams or greater of lithium. The batteries must be removed from equipment and shipped separately in a container approved by the Department of Transportation. Additional Department of Transportation restrictions apply to the shipment of lithium batteries. NEMA Standards Publication No. ICS 1.3–1986, Preventive Maintenance of Industrial Control and System Equipment, is recommended for personnel responsible for maintenance of equipment. 5.3 Repair If equipment condition indicates repair or replacement, the manufacturer’s instruction manual should be followed carefully. Diagnostic information within such a manual should be used to identify the probable source of the problem, and to formulate a repair plan. The level of field repair recommended by the manufacturer should be followed. When solid state equipment is repaired, it is important that any replacement part be in accordance with the recommendations of the equipment manufacturer. Care should be taken to avoid the use of parts which are no longer compatible with other changes in the equipment. Also, replacement parts should be inspected for deterioration due to ”shelf life” and for signs of rework or wear, which may involve factors critical to safety. After repair, proper start-up procedures should be followed. Special precautions should be taken to protect personnel from hazards during start-up. General Terms & Conditions of Sale/Maintenance of Solid-State Control General–7 C.5.3 Repair [Explanatory Information (Supplementary Comments—Not part of NEMA Standards Publication No. ICS 1.1)] Follow manufacturer’s instructions exactly when replacing power semiconductors mounted on heatsinks since improper installation may become the source of further difficulties. Torque semiconductors or bolts retaining semiconductors to the value specified with a torque wrench. Too much pressure against a heatsink can damage a semiconductor, while too little can restrict the amount of heat transferred from the semiconductor to the heatsink, and resulting in operation at higher temperature with decreased reliability. Exercise care when removing modules from a system during maintenance. Failed modules are frequently returned to the manufacturer for repair. Any physical damage sustained during removal may result in more expensive repair or render the module unrepairable if damage is too great. Modules with electrostatic sensitive components should be handled by the edges without touching components or printed circuit conductors. Use packaging material supplied with the replacement module when shipping the module to the manufacturer for repair. When the scope of repairs exceeds the manufacturer’s recommendations for field repair, the module(s) should be returned to the manufacturer for repair. Doing so will help to ensure that only properly selected components are used and that all necessary hardware and firmware revisions are incorporated into the repair. Failure to make necessary updates may result in safety, compatibility, or performance problems, which may not become apparent for some time after the repaired module has been placed back in service. When firmware is protected by copyright law, updates can be provided legally only by the manufacturer or licensee. 5.4 Safety Recommendations for Maintenance Personnel All maintenance work should be done by qualified personnel familiar with the construction, operation, and hazards involved with the equipment. The appropriate work practices of NFPA 70E should be followed.
