The 531X140CCHASM2 is a board component manufactured by GE as part of the 531X series. The 531X series of PCBs are general purpose circuit boards designed as parts for a variety of GE’s general purpose drives. The 531X140CCHASM2 board is primarily used as a Drive Control Card for an AC500 drive.
The 531X140CCHASM2 is a larger board that has been drilled in each corner for screw mounting. It has eight standoffs already mounted to the surface of the board, which allow for installation of two optional auxiliary boards. These auxiliaries screw mount into the top of the standoffs, which hold them in pace. They communicate with the motherboard through cable connections plugged into one of the six male vertical pin cable connectors located on the surface of the 531X140CCHASM2. This board also has two vertical pin header connectors.
The 531X140CCHASM2 has a single push-button switch component. There are eleven transistors on the surface of the board, of various designs. The board has multiple jumper switches, as well as over twenty resistor network arrays and seven potentiometers. The board makes use of metal film resistors, electrolytic capacitors, and capacitors made from polyester vinyl and ceramic materials. Surface wiring is evident. The board has more than thirty integrated circuits.
The 531X140CCHASM2 has a single line of six LED indicators. These are located in the upper left quadrant of the board. Each of these components is red, and each is numbered in sequence. The board is marked with several codes, including VA-4, FR00/0 and 003/0. It has an alternate board number of F31X300CCHAFG1. Installation procedures may be found through manufacturer user guides or data sheets.
