General Electric created the DS3800NPSB1F1L to be a part of the Speedtronic MKIV turbine control series. The MKIV series is responsible for the automation and protection of gas and steam turbines. This device is a PCB (printed circuit board).
The DS3800NPSB1F1L features three (3) large orange capacitors in various places around the circuit board. The DS3800NPSB1F1L also contains a large silver capacitor as well as a number of smaller silver capacitors. There are seven (7) silver capacitors altogether. Seven (7) blue potentiometers are located all around the DS3800NPSB1F1L. Each potentiometer features a small dial which an operator may use to adjust the resistance of each device. For this reason, potentiometers are also known as variable resistors. Six (6) integrated circuits are found throughout the DS3800NPSB1F1L. Each integrated circuit contains a number of very small components such as diodes, resistors, and capacitors. The DS3800NPSB1F1L features ten (10) small transistors in total. Three (3) of these small transistors are black and the remaining seven (7) are silver. The DS3800NPSB1F1L has one (1) blue terminal block situated near the center of the DS3800NPSB1F1L. This terminal block contains twenty-eight (28) small terminals. Along the right edge of the DS3800NPSB1F1L on the upper side, there are six (6) test points. These test points enable the operator to test the board to ensure that it is working correctly. The DS3800NPSB1F1L features two large off-white resistors. These resistors are rectangular in shape. They are paired together near the top border of the DS3800NPSB1F1L. Numerous jumper pins are aligned on the sides of the DS3800NPSB1F1L. These pins can be connected with jumpers to change the functionality of the DS3800NPSB1F1L.
