The GE Parallel Line Buffer Board DS3800HPBC1D1D is designed for quick installation in the drive. The board features a modular connector on 1 end and retention levers on the other end. The GE Parallel Line Buffer Board DS3800HPBC1D1D also is populated with 1 red indicator LEDs and 2 amber LEDs which are visible from the front of the board. The board also is populated with 3 jumpers, and multiple capacitors.
Another component on the board is a transistor to transistor logic (TTL) device. It serves as the interface logic between integrated circuits.
The GE Parallel Line Buffer Board DS3800HPBC1D1D is installed in a drive that has several requirements for the installation site you choose. Dirt, dust, and harsh chemicals can shorten the life expectancy of the board. When you select the installation site, choose a location with clean air that has a minimum of dirt and dust. Refer to an installation specification about the chemicals that the drive can be near during operation.
If the harsh chemicals can potentially harm the drive, there are several steps to consider to mitigate the situation. Ventilation hoods can be installed over the drive. The hoods use powerful fans to remove all chemicals, dirt, and dust from the air. It can improve working conditions of the drive. Filters can be installed to remove the harsh chemicals from the air. The filters are part of the ventilation system and they can remove dust and dirt from the air. Another solution is to install the drive in another room that is free of the harsh chemicals.
