The GE Excitation Power Board DS3800NEPD1H1E features a hole in each corner through which you can insert a screw to secure the board. The board is populated with multiple capacitors. The board is populated with 2 Analog Devices power components. The GE Excitation Power Board DS3800NEPD1H1E is also populated with 1 amber indicator LED. The board also has 1 34-pin connector and multiple wire terminals for attaching wires and components to circuits. The board is also populated with 5 trimmer resistors.
The GE Excitation Power Board DS3800NEPD1H1E is populated with 4 high-voltage capacitors that can cause a serious shock or burn to an individual who is not trained in how to safely handle the board. The drive is powered by high-voltage electricity. Some of the sources are ac current and some are dc current. The dc current is transformed from ac current using rectifiers. The drive uses the various sources to power the motor and other moving parts. Some of the dc current is used to power the boards and to process the control signals. The capacitors store high-voltage dc current during normal processing. The current is released during normal processing and the cycle is repeated many times without operator intervention.
When power is removed from the drive the capacitors might still retain current which can harm the individual touching the board. The high-voltage current dissipates from the capacitors after a few seconds. With that in mind, after you remove the ac and dc current from the drive, wait 30 seconds before you begin any service procedure.
