Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 164 / Tuesday, August 25, 2015 / Rules and Regulations (D) Test switch-selectable singlevoltage external power supplies twice— once at the highest nameplate output voltage and once at the lowest. (E) Test adaptive external power supplies twice—once at the highest achievable output voltage and once at the lowest. (F) In order to load the power supply to produce all four active-mode load conditions, use a set of variable resistive or electronic loads. Although these loads may have different characteristics than the electronic loads power supplies are intended to power, they provide standardized and readily repeatable references for testing and product comparison. Note that resistive loads need not be measured precisely with an ohmmeter; simply adjust a variable resistor to the point where the ammeter confirms that the desired percentage of nameplate output current is flowing. For electronic loads, adjust the desired output current in constant current (CC) mode rather than adjusting the required output power in constant power (CP) mode. (G) As noted in IEC 62301 (incorporated by reference; see § 430.3), instantaneous measurements are appropriate when power readings are stable in a particular load condition. Operate the UUT at 100% of nameplate current output for at least 30 minutes immediately prior to conducting efficiency measurements. After this warm-up period, monitor AC input power for a period of 5 minutes to assess the stability of the UUT. If the power level does not drift by more than 5% from the maximum value observed, the UUT is considered stable and the measurements should be recorded at the end of the 5-minute period. Measure subsequent load conditions under the same 5-minute stability parameters. Note that only one warm-up period of 30 minutes is required for each UUT at the beginning of the test procedure. If the AC input power is not stable over a 5-minute period, follow the guidelines established by IEC 62301 for measuring average power or accumulated energy over time for both AC input and DC output. Conduct efficiency measurements in sequence from Load Condition 1 to Load Condition 5 as indicated in Table 1. If testing of additional, optional load conditions is desired, that testing should be conducted in accordance with this test procedure and subsequent to completing the sequence described above. (H) Calculate efficiency by dividing the UUT’s measured DC output power at a given load condition by the true AC input power measured at that load condition. Calculate average efficiency as the arithmetic mean of the efficiency values calculated at Test Conditions 1, 2, 3, and 4 in Table 1, and record this value. Average efficiency for the UUT is a simple arithmetic average of activemode efficiency values, and is not intended to represent weighted average efficiency, which would vary according to the duty cycle of the product powered by the UUT. (I) Power consumption of the UUT at each Load Condition 1–4 is the difference between the DC output power (W) at that Load Condition and the AC input power (W) at that Load Condition. The power consumption of Load Condition 5 (no load) is equal to the AC input power (W) at that Load Condition. (ii) Off-Mode Measurement—If the external power supply UUT incorporates manual on-off switches, place the UUT in off-mode, and measure and record its power consumption at ‘‘Load Condition 5’’ in Table 1. The measurement of the off-mode energy consumption must conform to the requirements specified in paragraph 4(a)(i) of this appendix, except that all manual on-off switches must be placed in the ‘‘off’’ position for the off-mode measurement. The UUT is considered stable if, over 5 minutes with samples taken at least once every second, the AC input power does not drift from the maximum value observed by more than 1 percent or 50 milliwatts, whichever is greater. Measure the off-mode power consumption of a switch-selectable single-voltage external power supply twice—once at the highest nameplate output voltage and once at the lowest. * * * * * ■ 7.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:04 Aug 24, 2015 Jkt 235001 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Cessna Aircraft Company Model 500, 501, 550, 551, S550, 560, and 650 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on January 23, 2015 (80 FR 3516). The NPRM was prompted by reports of smoke and/or fire in the tailcone caused by sparking due to excessive wear of the brushes in the A/C motor. The NPRM proposed to require inspections to determine if certain A/C compressor motors are installed and to determine the accumulated hours on certain A/C compressor motor assemblies; and repetitive replacement of the brushes in the A/C compressor motor assembly, or, as an option to the brush replacement, deactivation of the A/C system and placard installation; and return of replaced brushes to Cessna. We are issuing this AD to prevent the brushes in the A/C motor from wearing down beyond their limits, which could result in the rivet in the brush contacting the commutator, causing sparks and consequent fire and/or smoke in the tailcone with no means to detect or extinguish the fire and/or smoke. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 3516, January 23, 2015) or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed except for minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 3516, January 23, 2015) for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 3516, January 23, 2015). Interim Action We consider this AD interim action. The reporting data required by this AD will enable us to obtain better insight PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 into brush wear. The reporting data will also indicate if the replacement intervals we established are adequate. After we analyze the reporting data received, we might consider further rulemaking.

ATTN: Information Collection Clearance Officer, AES–200. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: ‘‘General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:04 Aug 24, 2015 Jkt 235001 Cost per product Parts cost safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. § 39.13 This AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, (2) Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979), (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and (4) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. $85 85 ■ Regulatory Findings $0 0 ■ List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety.

Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain 
Cessna Aircraft Company Model 500, 501, 550, 551, S550, 560, and 650 
airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of smoke and/or fire in the 
tailcone caused by sparking due to excessive wear of the brushes in the 
air conditioning (A/C) motor. This AD requires inspections to determine 
if certain A/C compressor motors are installed and to determine the 
accumulated hours on certain A/C compressor motor assemblies; and 
repetitive replacement of the brushes in the A/C compressor motor 
assembly, or, as an option to the brush replacement, deactivation of 
the A/C system and

[[Page 51444]]

placard installation; and return of replaced brushes to Cessna. We are 
issuing this AD to prevent the brushes in the A/C motor from wearing 
down beyond their limits, which could result in the rivet in the brush 
contacting the commutator, causing sparks and consequent fire and/or 
smoke in the tailcone with no means to detect or extinguish the fire 
and/or smoke.

DATES: This AD is effective September 29, 2015.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of September 29, 
2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Cessna Aircraft 
Company Model 500, 501, 550, 551, S550, 560, and 650 airplanes. The 
NPRM published in the Federal Register on January 23, 2015 (80 FR 
3516). The NPRM was prompted by reports of smoke and/or fire in the 
tailcone caused by sparking due to excessive wear of the brushes in the 
A/C motor. The NPRM proposed to require inspections to determine if 
certain A/C compressor motors are installed and to determine the 
accumulated hours on certain A/C compressor motor assemblies; and 
repetitive replacement of the brushes in the A/C compressor motor 
assembly, or, as an option to the brush replacement, deactivation of 
the A/C system and placard installation; and return of replaced brushes 
to Cessna. We are issuing this AD to prevent the brushes in the A/C 
motor from wearing down beyond their limits, which could result in the 
rivet in the brush contacting the commutator, causing sparks and 
consequent fire and/or smoke in the tailcone with no means to detect or 
extinguish the fire and/or smoke.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 3516, January 23, 
2015) or on the determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed except for 
minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (80 FR 3516, January 23, 2015) for correcting the unsafe 
condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 3516, January 23, 2015).

Interim Action

    We consider this AD interim action. The reporting data required by 
this AD will enable us to obtain better insight into brush wear. The 
reporting data will also indicate if the replacement intervals we 
established are adequate. After we analyze the reporting data received, 
we might consider further rulemaking.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

Paperwork Reduction Act

    A federal agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not 
required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to penalty for 
failure to comply with a collection of information subject to the 
requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act unless that collection of 
information displays a current valid OMB control number. The control 
number for the collection of information required by this AD is 2120-
0056. The paperwork cost associated with this AD has been detailed in 
the Costs of Compliance section of this document and includes time for 
reviewing instructions, as well as completing and reviewing the 
collection of information. Therefore, all reporting associated with 
this AD is mandatory. Comments concerning the accuracy of this burden 
and suggestions for reducing the burden should be directed to the FAA 
at 800 Independence Ave. SW., Washington, DC 20591. ATTN: Information 
Collection Clearance Officer, AES-200.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the 
authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs, 
describes in more detail the scope of the Agency's authority.
    We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: ``General 
requirements.'' Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with 
promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing 
regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator 
finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within 
the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition 
that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this 
rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    This AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 
13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, 
on the relationship between the national government and the States, or 
on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various 
levels of government.
    For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD:
    (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive 
Order 12866,
    (2) Is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT Regulatory Policies and 
Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979),
    (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and
    (4) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 21, Air 
Conditioning.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by reports of smoke and/or fire in the 
tailcone caused by sparking due to excessive wear of the brushes in 
the A/C motor. We are issuing this AD to prevent the brushes in the 
A/C motor from wearing down beyond their limits, which could result 
in the rivet in the brush contacting the commutator, causing sparks 
and consequent fire and/or smoke in the tailcone with no means to 
detect or extinguish the fire and/or smoke.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.

(g) Inspection for Part Number (P/N)

    Within 30 days or 10 flight hours after the effective date of 
this AD, whichever occurs first: Inspect the A/C compressor motor to 
determine whether P/N FWA1134104-1 or P/N FWA1134104-5 is installed. 
A review of airplane maintenance records is acceptable in lieu of 
this inspection if the part number of the A/C compressor motor can 
be conclusively determined from that review.

(h) Inspection of Compressor Hour Meter and Maintenance Records

    If, during the inspection required by paragraph (g) of this AD, 
any A/C compressor motor having P/N FWA1134104-1 or P/N FWA1134104-5 
is found: Within 30 days or 10 flight hours after the effective date 
of this AD, whichever occurs first, determine the hour reading on 
the A/C compressor hour meter as specified in paragraphs (h)(1) and 
(h)(2) of this AD.
    (1) Inspect the number of hours accumulated on the A/C 
compressor hour meter.
    (2) Check the airplane logbook for any entry for replacing the 
A/C compressor motor brushes with new brushes, or for replacing the 
compressor motor or compressor condenser module assembly (pallet) 
with a motor or assembly that has new brushes.
    (i) If the logbook contains an entry for replacement of parts, 
as specified in paragraph (h)(2) of this AD, determine the number of 
hours accumulated on the A/C compressor motor brushes by comparing 
the number of hours on the compressor motor since replacement and 
use this number in lieu of the number determined in paragraph (h)(1) 
of this AD.
    (ii) If, through the logbook check, a determination cannot be 
made regarding the number of hours accumulated on the A/C compressor 
motor brushes, as specified in paragraph (h)(2) of this AD, use the 
number of hours accumulated on the A/C compressor hour meter 
determined in paragraph (h)(1) of this AD, or presume the brushes 
have over 500 hours time-in-service.

(i) Replacement

    Using the hour reading on the A/C compressor hour meter 
determined in paragraph (h) of this AD, replace the A/C compressor 
motor brushes with new brushes at the later of the times specified 
in paragraphs (i)(1) and (i)(2) of this AD. Thereafter, repeat the 
replacement of the A/C compressor motor brushes at intervals not to 
exceed 500 hours time-in-service on the A/C compressor motor. Do the 
replacement in accordance with the applicable Cessna maintenance 
manual subject specified in paragraphs (j)(1) through (j)(6) of this 
AD.
    (1) Before the accumulation of 500 total hours time-in-service 
on the A/C compressor motor.
    (2) Before further flight after doing the inspection required in 
paragraph (h) of this AD.

(j) Maintenance Manual Information for Replacement

    Use the instructions in the applicable Cessna maintenance manual 
subject specified in paragraphs (j)(1) through (j)(6) of this AD to 
do the replacement required by paragraph (i) of this AD.
