General Electric made the IC3600SCBAB1 PCB (printed circuit board) to be one of the many parts in the Mark II series for turbine control. The first system, Mark I, was created in the late 1960s. The Speedtronic Mark series is designed to manage the operations of turbines including fuel, emissions, and air control. The Mark II is in charge of the sequencing of fuels as well as other processes such as startup, shutdown, and cooldown. The Mark II protects operators and equipment from the dangers of conditions that are unsafe.
At the lower side of the IC3600SCBAB1 there is a large yellow capacitor. The part number, which is 708A1, is printed on the outside of this capacitor. A resistor covered in different colored bands like grey, black, and red is situated above the capacitor. Near the top of the IC3600SCB1A1, there are five (5) additional resistors of the same size. These resistors contain bands of varying colors such as blue, red, green, brown, and gold. The letters A to Y are labeled on the surface of the IC3600SCBAB1 in white writing. On the surface, the IC3600SCBAB1 also contains many numbers in white print. On the right side of the IC3600SCBAB1, there is a long line of metal prongs spanning the edge. These prongs can be used to connected the IC3600SCBAB1 with rest of the system. Twenty (20) cube-shaped metal components can also be found sitting on the surface of the IC3600SCBAB1. These metal components are used to wire the IC3600SCBAB1 into the rest of the system. Every one of the components on the PCB is attached to these metal cubes with metal wire.
