h. Prepare Reports. Each time PMCS is scheduled on an X-ray system you
will receive a DD Form 314 (Preventive Maintenance Schedule and Record), DA Form
2409 (Equipment Maintenance Log), and, if your unit is automated, a report from either
The Army Maintenance Management Information System (TAMMIS) or the Army
Medical Department Property Accounting System (AMEDDPAS).
(1) Check the performance history of the X-ray system for any recurrent
problems. Check DA Form 2404 or the automated print-out as necessary.
Be alert for any systematic problems you find in your review.
(3) If you are on a manual system, record all uncorrected conditions on DA
Form 2404 as you perform PMCS.
The following are the forms you use to record PMCS.
(a) DD Form 314. Update after completing PMCS.
(b) DD Form 2164 (X-ray Verification/ Certification Worksheet.
Complete and attach a list of test equipment used during PMCS procedures.
DA Form 2404. Update after completing PMCS.
(d) DD Form 2163 (Medical Equipment Verification/Certification Label.
Complete and attach to the X-ray unit.
(5) Complete a DA Form 2407 (Maintenance Request) and, if applicable, a
DA Form 2406 (Material Condition Status Report) if additional maintenance is required.
a. Introduction. Preventive maintenance consists of procedures which
minimize generator failures. Component inspection, operational certification, and
compliance tests are examples of preventive maintenance. It is most effective when
performed according to schedule, thus it is often called "periodic maintenance."
b. Periodic Maintenance. A conscientiously conducted visual inspection
frequently reveals potential malfunctions before they cause equipment failures which
could be dangerous.
(1) Line-set adjustments. The line-set adjustments must be performed at
the time of installation. These are the same line-set adjustments performed in
paragraph 1-2d. Refer back to paragraph 1-2d and check these adjustments at least
once every 90 days or quarterly.
