The IC3600SVZC1 is a 12-28 volt voltage regulator card. This product was created by General Electric or GE for the Speedtronic Mark I-II series. The Mark I and Mark II, released as early as 1969 and 1973 respectively, were the first series in General Electric’s Mark line. A voltage regulator is a system which is designed to maintain a constant voltage level. The regulator generates a fixed output voltage that remains constant despite any changes in input voltage or load conditions. Regulators also act as buffers to protect components from damage. The IC3600SVZC1 voltage regulator card is a type of printed circuit board or PCB.
The most prominent component on the IC3600SVZC1 is a large transformer which is positioned almost directly in the center of the PCB. This transformer is rectangular and features its part number 993055G1 which is written on top of the part in white print. Positioned on each side of this transformer is one large silver capacitor. These capacitors may be solid silver or they may contain red on one end. A variety of yellow capacitors in different sizes may also be found on the IC3600SVZC1 in different areas. A long line of around fifty (50) metal prongs can be seen on the edge of the IC3600SVZC1 adjacent to the transformer. These prongs are labeled numerically in yellow writing. Two (2) potentiometers or variable resistors which are blue are positioned along the opposite end of the IC3600SVZC1. Also situated on the other side of the IC3600SVZC1 is an integrated circuit. This integrated circuit may be white, silver, or black in color. Each integrated circuit contains within it a network of very small components like diodes, resistors, and capacitors.
