The IC3600STKP1D is a component in the Speedtronic Mark I and Mark II series by General Electric. This part is a type of printed circuit board. The Mark I and Mark II have been used since 1969 and 1973 respectively to manage and automate turbine processes. These series were the first to be introduced in the GE’s Mark line.
The IC3600STKP1D is a printed circuit board (or PCB) which has an attached metal plate on its left side. Adjacent to this plate is a series of seven (7) blue potentiometers arranged in a line. Also called variable resistors, every potentiometer contains a knob which allows for the resistance of each device to be adjusted if needed. A series of capacitors in varying sizes, colors, and shapes can be found in different places on the IC3600STKP1D. Two (2) large silver capacitors have been placed on the bottom half of the PCB near the lower right corner. At least one other silver capacitor, which is smaller in size, is located on the IC3600STKP1D’s lower edge. Much of the IC3600STKP1D is occupied by a series of resistors. These resistors featured a pattern of colored bands. The different colors of the bands represent the resistance capacity of each device. The full part number of the PCB, as well as the many labels of the board’s components, are written on the IC3600STKP1D’s surface in yellow print. The IC3600STKP1D may be connected to the rest of the turbine system with a series of metal prongs which have been positioned on the far right side of the PCB.
