The GE Power Connection Board 531X308PCSAEG1 is a renewal part for multiple original equipment power connection boards. The 531X308PCSAEG1 is one of multiple boards that are installed in the drive and it is efficient to perform a scheduled maintenance on the drive while the drive is offline for the replacement of the board.
The drive is engineered to need minimal attention during the working life of the drive. Besides the replacement of defective components, such as boards, regular maintenance is required. The best practice is to perform a periodic maintenance every six months. The maintenance keeps the drive running at peak performance.
First, visually inspect the motor and clean all components with a mild cleaner. Do not use harsh cleaners that might be corrosive to cables or metal surfaces. Use your hand to spin the motor back and forth to verify that nothing is preventing free movement of the motor. Use you hand or pliers to remove any metal pieces that are embedded in the motor. Tug on all the cables connected to the drive and tighten any that are loose. You might need to use a torque wrench to tighten the bolts to the torque requirements for a terminal.
Once the maintenance is complete you can perform the replacement of the board. Refer to the information that came with the board for the settings for the jumpers. You must configure the board to supply the drive with the right voltage. Use the jumpers to set the voltage for your drive.
