The IC3600KMRE2 is a medium duty relay that fits in the Mark I or the Mark II series from General Electric. The MKI/MKII were the first Speedtronic systems for gas/steam turbine management to be commercially released by GE. While both of these series have now been in use for several decades and remain in use around the globe, they have become obsolete due to the release of technologically superior Speedtronic systems like the MKIV through the MKVIe and are no longer supported by the original equipment manufacturer.
The IC3600KMRE2 is a plug-in style relay. It has a gray housing that is marked with the part number, the code W8934, and also carries a relay diagram. The interior workings of a relay include an electromagnetic coil, a spring, and contacts. The spring is designed to hold the contact in a certain position until a current passes through the coil. At that time the coil will generate a magnetic field that will move the contact on or off, depending on its starting position. The relay diagram on the housing is a pictograph of the RLL or relay ladder logic that lets the component function.
The IC3600KMRE2 is built with fourteen small pins in a circle placed on the front side of the relay The pins are numbered there from one to fourteen on the relay diagram. The relay also has one central plug that is longer and significantly wider than the other pins. This plug is represented on the relay diagram but is not numbered.
The IC3600KMRE2 ships from the AX Control warehouse wrapped in a static-reducing sleeve. Please read through any retained OEM publications like manuals or data sheets before beginning installation of this new part.
