DS200DMCAG1AEA GE Mark IV Interface Board
The DS200DMCAG1AEA is a General Electric Interface board that was originally manufactured for use within the company’s Speedtronic systems like the Mark IV. The Mark IV was the first of these systems to offer TMR (triple modular redundant) control that reduced downtime caused by equipment issues. The DS200DMCAG1AEA is no longer manufactured by GE but is available for sale from AX Control as either a new-used liquidated part or as a refurbished used unit.
The DS200DMCAG1AEA includes over fifty ICs ( integrated circuits), including those on the surface of the small auxiliary board attached to the bottom right of the DS200DMCAG1AEA. ICs include several FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) and oscillating chips. The unit also has two heat sinks, an inductor coil, and multiple high-voltage electrolytic capacitors. Other capacitors are made from polyester vinyl and ceramic material. Board resistors tend to be made from metal film. The DS200DMCAG1AEA has fifteen resistor network arrays.
Connections to other boards or off-board components are made via three vertical pin header connectors, a single female cable connector, four male vertical pin cable connectors, and several stab-on connectors. The board can be user-configured via multiple jumper switches. The board is protected by two fuse components mounted in fuse holders. It also has a single reset switch and several LED indicators.
Step-by-step instructions on how to install or properly handle the DS200DMCAG1AEA and a detailed description of individual board components can be accessed through technical support publications supplied by GE with your OEM purchase like manuals and data sheets.
