The GE Contactor Pilot Board DS200CPCAG1ABB features one 12-pin connector, and two 2-pin connectors. It also features four terminal blocks to connect a maximum of twelve signal wires. The GE Contactor Pilot Board DS200CPCAG1ABB is also populated with a 24VDC 15A socket power relay.
The relay has moving parts inside and so requires careful consideration when you install the board in the drive. The relay is easily damaged if it is knocked against a metal structure or other components inside the drive cabinet. And the relay is tall and protrudes from the surface of the board making it easy to hit. When you slide the board into the drive cabinet, make sure you have a good view of the board and the inside of the cabinet. Slowly insert the board and align it with the screws on the rack. With one hand, insert the screws into the holes and with the other hand turn the screwdriver to secure the screws. However, don’t damage the board by securing the board so tight that the screws crack the board. Use washers if they are supplied or were used on the defective board.
Then, open the screws on the terminal blocks and insert the wires into the appropriate terminal. With one hand keep the wire inserted into the terminal and use the other hand to tighten the terminal screw. Hold cables by the connector and insert them into the appropriate connector. Gently press them into the connector to insure they are fully seated.
