|Origin||United States (US)|
The GE Power Supply DC Input Board model DS200TCPSG1ARE contains only one 16-pin connector, and only one 9-pin connector. There are also several integrated test points. The GE Power Supply DC Input Board DS200TCPSG1ARE also is populated with 3 replaceable fuses that protect circuits on the board.
Because the fuses are replaceable there are some factors to consider before you replace a fuse. The fuses are secured to the board with clamps that also enable an electric current through the fuse. When more current than the circuit can safely use is introduced to the circuit, the element in the fuse blows which stops the current from running through the circuit and damaging the board.
If you suspect that the board is not performing as you expect, you can open the cabinet door, find the board, and examine the fuses. When you have the cabinet door open and the drive is still receiving electric power, do not touch any components because of the safety hazard posed by the high-voltage electricity.
The DS200TCPSG1ARE GE Power Supply DC Input Board contains three fuses, one 16-pin connector and one 9-pin connector as well as multiple test points. Its primary function is to convert the 125 VDC power from the TCPD board in the core into the necessary voltages required by various components. When this board stops performing its normal operations, the first step in troubleshooting is to examine the three fuses.
The fuses prevent damage to the board by shutting down the board if too much current is present in the board or if an irregularity has occurred in the current. It is best practice to have an inventory supply of the fuses with the same rating in case the fuses blow. It is important that they are exactly the same rating because a different fuse might expose the board to an over-current condition that can lead to damage.
Installing a replacement fuse is easy and the first step is to power off the drive. Only qualified individuals should be permitted to handle this board to prevent safety hazards or errors ininstallation. Before working on the board, the drive must be tested to verify that no power is present in the drive. Depending on how the board is installed and the accessibility of the board, the fuses can be replaced without removing the board.
