Nokia ACU5152 Antenna Control Unit (Positioner)


Two capacitors in the PSU should be replaced every year for reliability. CP23 = 10uF/50v. CP07 = 22uF/50v.

If these capacitors fail, the Power Supply output voltages will increase. Normally DP11 = 40 volts, DP12 = 20 volts.

Internal view ofNokia ACU5152

If capacitors fail, voltages can go as high as 80 volts!

Replace them before it happens!

If the voltages go high, IA7805 (7805 regulator for 5 volts) and IA04 (L6203 motor control I.C.) can fail. You might see the LED flickering or you might smell smoke!
