107. General

Connecting the M31A1 target holding mechanism to the M40 counter device enables the firer to engage a target and ascertain the results without moving down range. This ideal for night firing as it Is both expeditious and safe. Fifteen M 31 A1 target mechanisms may be connected to one M40 night firing device.

108. Procedures for Connection of System a. Punch out the upper perforated circles on the left, middle, and right1 of the terminal box.

b. Insert lug ends of the electrical special purpose cable assembly (fig 128) IFSN 6920-862. 4750» into the right and left holes (a above I. Connect the ground wire to the common section and one each lug terminal to each terminal on the terminal board (fig 1281 marked "Hit Switches." Rrprat the above procedure with the second special ptirpone cable to connect the lights.

c. Lay tw o 15-pair conducting cables from the sroring center terminal box down range to the vicinity of the berm.

d. Strip the insulation back Vi-inch at both end« on each conductor wire of the two 15-pair conductor cable*.

e. Select one »el of two conductor* from a 15* pair conductor cable. Attach one conductor under the screw numbered 1 on the "'Hit Switch "terminal board.

/. Select one set of two conductor» from the other cable. Attach one conductor under the screw numbered 1 on the "Lights" terminal board and the other conductor under the corresponding screw on the "Common" terminal board.

f. Repeat the procedure in a and / above for each M31A1 to be used (up to IS per each M40 device).
