General Electric created the IC3600SSZB1C to be a part of the Mark I and Mark II turbine control series. This product is what is known as a speed control board. The IC3600SSZB1C is a type of PCB or printed circuit board. The first two versions of GE’s Speedtronic Mark line, the Mark I and II were first released in 1969 and 1973 respectively. Mark systems have provided superior management of turbine operations for close to fifty (50) years. Mark systems are used to automate and protect gas turbines across all industries.
A metal plate is attached to the left side of the IC3600SSZB1C printed circuit board. One (1) component, a large light-emitting diode (LED) which is red is situated right in the middle of this plate. A series of white wires connect the LED for the surface of the PCB. A set of four (4) potentiometers are located on the IC3600SSZB1C adjacent to the metal plate. Of the four potentiometers, one pair is light blue and situated together close to the side of the IC3600SSZB1C. The other two (2) components are solid black in color. One of the black potentiometers is bigger and is sitting on along the edge on the lower side of the IC3600SSZB1C. Situated in the middle of the blue potentiometers is the last black component. These potentiometers, which can also be called variable resistors, all contain a knob that is meant to change the resistance level of the potentiometers when needed. The IC3600SSZB1C features many resistors which are light blue and covered in bands of various colors which indicate each device’s resistance.
