The DS3815RVTA is a PCB created as a component for the Mark IV. The MKIV was developed and released by General Electric in 1982 as a steam or gas turbine management system. It replaced earlier Speedtronic systems like the Mark I and the Mark II.
The DS3815RVTA is built with four light emitting diodes. There are three red LEDs and one amber LED on the board. The amber LED is labeled “IMOK.” The red LEDs are labeled “CONFIG,” “PEND,” and “DIAG.” These LEDs are located next to a right-angled male mating connector, which is marked 218A4837-P2. The board also has one right-angled female mating connector. This is located on the opposite side of the board from the first connector.
The DS3815RVTA is built with sixteen jumper switches. Jumpers allow for customization of the board, as they finish off circuits as the user chooses. The board has four resistor network arrays. Resistors on the board tend to be made of metal film (ceramic-covered.)
The DS3815RVTA has over fifty circuits. This includes two oscillating chips, which are placed side by side in one corner. There are also several rewritable memory chips and one LCC socket.
The DS3815RVTA has three test points. The board is marked for alignment and has been drilled for mounting. Extractor clips are installed in two corners.
AX Control will ship the DS3815RVTA to your facility wrapped in a protective, static-reducing covering. It is recommended technicians review any manuals or datasheets in your possession before installation begins. GE was responsible for providing technical support for this product.
