The IC3600TPAE1B1C is a GE FANUC component for the Mark I or the Mark II series from General Electric. Part of the popular Speedtronic line, the Mark I and Mark II were developed and released in 1969 and 1973 respectively. Both series are designed around a four-part model that are partitioned into a control system (startup/acceleration/speed/load,) a protection system that monitors and alarms issues, a sequencing system that allows for both normal and fast (emergency) starts and stops, and a power supply designed to be independent of the rest. The MKI and MKII have basic redundancies to improve reliability. The automation of procedures improves efficiency. Both the MKI and MKII are now considered obsolete due to the continued development of the Speedtronic line and the release of newer systems like the MKV and MKVI.
The IC3600TPAE1B1C carries five integrated circuits and twenty-one transistors of four different designs. It has three capacitors. Diodes and resistors tend to be vertically mounted and appear in several lines that parallel the long dimension of the board. The surface of the board carries several silver traces that connect empty through holes, as well as the codes 003/03, 006/04, ADS, and 68A944445. The board is drilled in two corners. The opposite edge is numbered and populated with a line of metal pins that is designed to transmit data between the board and the rest of the system.
The IC3600TPAE1B1C will be wrapped in a static-reducing material before it is boxed for shipment. If manuals or data sheets from the OEM have been retained, please review installation instructions from these publications before unboxing your new board.
