The GE Firing Circuit Board DS3800NFCD1K1A features 1 hole in each corner for attaching with screws the board to the drive interior. The board is populated with 4 standoffs for attaching a daughter card. The daughter card provides additional processing, connectors, and features. The board is populated with multiple transistor-transistor logic devices. The GE Firing Circuit Board DS3800NFCD1K1A is also populated with 13 red indicator LEDs and 1 amber indicator LED. The board also has 1 socket for electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) modules. The board is also populated with multiple jumpers and 2 34-pin connectors.
The 14 indicator LEDs on the GE Firing Circuit Board DS3800NFCD1K1A have IDs. The IDs enable the operator or other individuals to monitor to health and functionality of the board. The amber indicator LED is on when a warning is issued to the board. A warning means the board is still operating but that a situation exists that must be resolved. For example, if the board is too hot a warning is issued. If the problem is not resolved and the board continues to get hotter, a trip condition is issued and the drive shuts down automatically. To avoid the trip condition resolve the issue when the amber LED is on.
Any daughter card you have installed on the board might add to the buildup of heat. That is, the card might block air from flowing over the surface of the GE Firing Circuit Board DS3800NFCD1K1A. For that reason, take care that the air is able to freely flow through the drive.
