The DS3860HPTE is part of General Electric’s Speedtronic Mark IV turbine series. The gas and steam turbines are a fast way to provide energy and flexible fuel. A gas turbine builds pressure by using a combination of air and fuel in an internal combustion engine to create a mixture of gases to turn the turbine blades. A steam turbine uses a large boiler which is filled with water. The boiler is then heated to create large amounts of steam which then turns the turbine's blades. The energy produced by the spinning turbine blades is then harnessed for other purposes. The DS3860HPTE has four bright blue diodes. The DS3860HPTE has nine black resistors with up to five different colored stripes on the outside. Each colored stripe corresponds with a color code that will let the worker know how much energy the resistors can withstand. The DS3860HPTE has a small circular red capacitor, one medium yellow capacitor, and a large white capacitor. Capacitors are used to create an electrical field that stores extra energy for the DS3860HPTE to use at a later time. The DS3860HPTE has three small circular transistors and a large black capacitor. The transistors are used to amplify or change electronic signal or electrical power. The DS3860HPTE is outlined on one edge is labeled one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten. The other edge is labeled A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H. Between each letter is a small triangle.
