The GE Fish Processor Board DS3800HFPE features a modular connector for attachment to a drive and retention levers to hold the board in the drive. The GE Fish Processor Board DS3800HFPE also is populated with 3 jumpers, and multiple capacitors. The board has 1 34-pin connector that is accessible from the front of the board. It also is populated with test points and 1 40-pin connector on the surface of the board.
Another component on the board is a transistor to transistor logic (TTL) device. It serves as the interface logic between integrated circuits. Because the board is powered with high-voltage current and features a powerful motor and other moving parts that can cause injury to operators and others in the surrounding area, it is important to use all safety considerations to service and install the board. The drive is often located in a site with dust, dirt, grease, and moisture present. This is due to the manufacturing environment. However, when a service task is being planned, it is important to clear the area and create a safe environment.
First, examine the floor and look for moisture or puddles of water. Because water is a conductor of electricity, it is safety hazard due to the risk of shock. Use rags or a wet-dry vacuum to clean up any water or other liquid. Wait until the floor is completely dry before continuing. Clear the area of any debris because it is a safety hazard. If 2-prong extension cords are in use, remove them due to the risk of shock from the ungrounded electrical current.
