The GE Terminal Digital Connector Board DS200DTBBGIABB features 2 terminal blocks with terminals for 95 signal wires in each. It also contains 3 50-pin connectors. The IDs for the 40-pin connectors are JFF, JFG, and JFH. It also is populated with bayonet connectors and 5 jumpers.
The board is 3 inches in height and 11.5 inches in length. It has 1 hole in each corner for the installer to attach the board to the board rack in the interior of the drive. The drive has multiple positions that can accept the installation of the board. However, it is best practice to install the board in the same position as the old board it is replacing. This is because of the large number of signal wires and ribbon cables attached to it. Cable routing is very important. If the cables are not routed properly interference can result and also the cooling of the drive interior can be negatively affected. The drive interior has many power cables and signal wires and ribbon cables. The power cables if routed too near the signal wires can interfere with the signals. This might result in inaccurate signals being transmitted and received by the board. The solution is to route the power cables as far as possible from the signal wires.
The other problem that can result from improper cable routing is reduced air flow within the drive. This can occur if bundles of cables block the flow of air in front of air vents or around components that generate heat.
