The DS3810EEPA is a Mark IV series PCB manufactured by GE. The MKIV was the third gas and steam management system in GE’s Speedtronic series that was commercially available. Introduced about a decade and a half after the first Speedtronic system, the MKIV had significant technological improvements, including the use of integrated platforms run by microcomputers that continuously monitored the turbine for issues like high pressure, over-speed, vibration, and fire.
The DS3810EEPA is built with thirty-five circuits on the board. This includes oscillating chips, electrically erasable PROMS (EEPROMS) and octal buffers.
The DS3810EEPA has four very small auxiliary boards attached to its surface. Each board is attached to the motherboard using two lines of board-to-board pins, thirteen in all. The auxiliaries are placed within a marked-off area on the primary board that has been labeled a “quad.” Each quad also includes one resistor network array and six jumper switches. There are four quads on the board (A/B/C/D.)
The DS3810EEPA has twenty-six jumpers, nine resistor network arrays (these numbers include those mentioned in the paragraph above,) one red LED, and one toggle switch. The board has one right-angled female mating connector. The board is marked on one edge with the code “6BA03.” Two corners are populated with extractor clips. It is worth noting the board also includes a chart in one corner that gives information on jumper position and how that affects hex base.
The DS3810EEPA will be shipped to your facility from ours protected by a static-reducing sleeve or covering. All tech support for the DS3810EEPA was provided by GE.
