The GE Digital Contact Terminal Board DS200DTBAG1A features two terminal blocks that each connect a maximum of 95 wires. DS200DTBAG1A also features 5 jumpers and two 2-pin connectors. Because of the high number of signal wires that can connect to the GE Digital Contact Terminal Board DS200DTBAG1A it is critical that you use best practices when you plan for the replacement of the board.
First, inspect the area around the drive and notice moisture on the floor as well as oil, grease, or other contaminants. Clean up the moisture before you begin and make sure the floor is dry and clean. The moisture can conduct electricity and is therefore a safety hazard that can cause shock, burn, or damage to other equipment in the general area. Look for electric cords without a ground and remove them from the area due to the safety concerns.
Keep the GE Digital Contact Terminal Board DS200DTBAG1A in the sealed bag you receive it in and if possible keep it stored in the shipping box. The board is fragile and others might accidentally handle it and cause damage.
The best way to handle the board is to carry it by the sides with two hands and never touch the components on the board when you carry it which might bend connectors and jumpers, or break off components.
Due to the large number of signal wires you must document where the wires are connected on the terminals. Then, use a screwdriver to loosen the screws that secure the wires in the terminal.
