The IC3600TBAA1 is an Amplifier Board that fits into the Mark I and Mark II series from GE. These were the original two Speedtronic systems developed for gas/steam heavy-duty turbine management. When these systems were released in 1969 and 1973, they used the newest technology available at the time to form management systems that were long-lasting, easy to use, adaptable, and scalable. The MKI/MKII are capable of managing systems as large as power plants (400 Mw combined cycle) to single turbine units rated to 4000 hp. The MKI/MKII are now considered obsolete and are not supported by GE, although many of the systems continue in use by facilities around the world.
The IC3600TBAA1 carries twenty transistors. Numbering of these transistors is not sequential, as the transistors are numbered up to Q37. More than one transistor may use the same designator. The board has four integrated circuits, including a Dual Pulse Stretcher chip. The board has thirteen capacitors including several made of ceramic material and several made of aluminum electrolytic material. Resistors tend to be made of metal film and are vertically mounted.
The IC3600TBAA1 is marked with the codes CWF and 002/03. It carries the board ID number and the GE logo. Numbering appears on one edge under a line of right-angled pins.
The IC3600TBAA1 ships with a protective, static-reducing sleeve placed around it. When your part is received and before it is unboxed, we suggest a review of safety procedures and installation information; these can be found in manuals and data sheets from GE.
