The IC3600STKA1 is a part known as a temperature control amplifier board. This product was created by GE, or General Electric for their Speedtronic Mark I-II turbine control series. Introduced in 1969 and 1973 respectively, the Mark I and Mark II were the earliest incarnations of GE’s Mark line. This line has been used to reliabl operate and automate gas turbine processes for decades. The IC3600STKA1 is a type of printed circuit board or PCB.
The IC3600STKA1 temperature control amplifier board features a number of different components. Five (5) potentiometers are aligned on the left side of the IC3600STKA1. Potentiometers, also known as variable resistors, feature small knobs which can be adjusted when needed to alter the resistance of the device. A number of solid black resistors are positioned among these potentiometers and are sitting upright on the board’s surface. Also situated among these potentiometers is a large solid red capacitor. One (1) relay, or contactor, can be found at the top left corner of the IC3600STKA1. This relay is black but features grey pieces on each end. The right half of the IC3600STKA1 features many various small components. Many resistors, which may be solid black or brown with colored bands, are aligned on the right half of the IC3600STKA1. Also featured on this side of the PCB are several small capacitors which are solid yellow. Three (3) small transistors which are round and silver in color are also placed on this half of the IC3600STKA1. A few wires can be seen on this side of the IC3600STKA1 which connect two components together.
