The GE Power Connection Board 531X308PCSADG3 is a renewal part for multiple original equipment power connection boards. The 531X308PCSADG3 board is one of several boards that are installed in the drive and replacement of the boards all require the servicer be qualified to work in the drive. The drive presents several different hazards and the servicer must take steps to reduce the hazards.
The moving parts of the drive and all surrounding equipment can easily cause bodily harm if the individuals are too close or are unaware of the danger. For this reason, it is important to shutdown nearby equipment if possible. The services must understand the dangers and keep a safe distance from all equipment. It is best to plan in advance with all operators to minimize the downtime of the nearby equipment. It might be possible to schedule the service during off peak times.
The current used by the drive is strong and can lead to severe electric shock, burns, or death. The individual that performs the replacement must first full investigate the cabling used to supply the drive with power. The servicer must know where the 3-phase power supplies are located as well as any secondary power supplies. The servicer must be familiar with the ground cabling and control signal cabling. If emergency shutoff devices are installed, the servicer must know where they are and how to use them. If an emergency occurs the servicer should have other individuals available that can throw the emergency switch to disconnect all power.
