About the DS200FSAAG1A

This DS200FSAAG1A printed circuit board is a General Electric product originally designed and manufactured for the Mark V Turbine Control System Legacy Series. The Mark V Series that this DS200FSAAG1A printed circuit board or PCB for short belongs to is characterizable as a legacy series due to its manufacturing discontinuation in the years following its initial release. While this DS200FSAAG1A product offering's greater Mark V Series is a legacy series, it is also characterizable as one of the final General Electric Mark product series to make use of the retailer's patented and esteemed Speedtronic control system technology first released in the late 1960s. This DS200FSAAG1A PCB is better definable as a Single-phase Field Supply Gate Amplifier Board, although the original product of this functionality to exist within the Mark V Series is the DS200FSAAG1 parent printed circuit board of the same functionality. 

Hardware Tips and Specifications

This DS200FSAAG1A PCB, like any Mark V Series product available here, utilizes a unique set of hardware components and component specifications to achieve full functional status within its greater Mark V Series automated drive assembly. The GE Field Supply Amplifier Board DS200FSAAG1A features five jumpers, one 10-pin connector, and two fuses. It is also populated with multiple test points.  The GE Field Supply Amplifier Board DS200FSAAG1A is designed to attach to another drive component; standoffs on the other component enable the board to be secured with screws. The holes on each corner of the DS200FSAAG1A board align with the standoffs and enable you to insert the screws through the board. When you tighten the screws use care to avoid damaging the board by over-tightening the screws. The area surrounding the holes on the board has a metal surface which helps protect the board. The two fuses in the assembly of this DS200FSAAG1A product offering, as described in the DS200FSAAG1A instructional manual attached above, exist as 30 A, 60 V fast-acting types of fuses. Before making any final purchase decision on this DS200FSAAG1A product, it is of paramount importance to understand that this DS200FSAAG1A device's originally-introduced performance specifications and dimensions have been altered through its acceptance of an A-rated functional product revision.

Examine how the jumpers are positioned on the previous DS200FSAAG1A board and duplicate the positions on the newly installed board. In this way, the new board will behave the same as the hardware positions of the previous board. Align the new board over the standoffs and tighten the screws with a screwdriver. Use two hands to tighten the screws, and use one hand to guide the screwdriver into the screw head, and the other to turn the screw. Make sure all four screws are evenly tightened in the standoffs. There are two groups of FSAA boards, one is associated with the DS200FSAAG1A model, and the other is labeled as DS200FSAAG2. Both are non-reversing and are associated with field supplies, but the DS200FSAAG2 group is only used with non-reversing field supplies, while the DS200FSAAG1 group is used with non-reversing plugging field supplies but does have the capacity to work in a DS200FSAAG2 or NRX setting. 

Frequently Asked Questions about DS200FSAAG1A

What kind of fuses does DS200FSAAG1A have?
DS200FSAAG1A has two Limitron fast-acting fuses. These fuses are located on the left side of DS200FSAAG1A. Each fuse on DS200FSAAG1A has a KTK symbol, and each fuse on DS200FSAAG1A is a 30 amp fuse. These fuses were designed to protect fields up to 24 A, as well as the alternating current (AC) MOV. For fields that have greater than 24 A, the fuses on the board will protect the AC MOV, but larger external fuses are required to feed the field.
How many pins are in DS200FSAAG1A's terminal connector?
DS200FSAAG1A has a 10-pin terminal connector. This terminal connector on DS200FSAAG1A is labeled FPL on DS200FSAAG1A.

Other than the non-reversing plugging (NRP) and non-reversing (NRX) functions on the FSAA models, are there any differences between them?

There are some differences between the two models; for example, the FSAA GR1 board, such as the DS200FSAAG1A model, has phase control to control four SCRs. The SCRs are what allow the DS200FSAAG1A model to perform the plugging operation. There are also jumpers on the DS200FSAAG1A model, which allows the model to provide an NRX function when an excessive field issue occurs with the NRP application. The DS200FSAAG2 model allows for control of SCRs P2 and N2 to turn on by themselves when their anode voltage is positive. Note that while the DS200FSAAG1A model can work in NRP and NRX functions, the DS200FSAAG2 model can only function in NRX mode.

Reviews For DS200FSAAG1A

Internal Review

While both FSAA boards are used with field supplies and are each non-reversing, the DS200FSAAG1A model is superior to the DS200FSAAG2 boards due to the configurable jumpers. The jumpers on the DS200FSAAG1A model must all be the same when adjusting them and can be used with non-reversing plugging (NRP) and non-reversing (NRX) functions.
